Product Description

No time to exercise? Research shows that several short bouts of exercise accumulated through the day have almost the same health and weight-loss benefits as one long session. Specifically, 10 minutes of exercise, three times a day, has practically the same benefits as 30 minutes all at once. This video makes that approach easy. The athletic instructor presents five different 10-minute workouts that you can mix and match according to your schedule and preferences. She teaches alone (no class, no club) and cues clearly. She packs a lot of exercise variety into the following workouts:

  • "Boot camp": Alternate sport-conditioning moves--like lunges, jogs, and some jumping moves--with muscle work. You'll need a chair and dumbbells.

  • Pilates: Firm your abs with a challenging approach that uses the core muscles of the torso in a unique way that does not resemble your usual crunches or sit-ups.

  • Kickboxing: This high-powered aerobic workout uses kicks and punches to burn calories fast.

  • Ballet: Shape your legs and buttocks with barre exercises.

  • Yoga: These yoga exercises were chosen to strengthen as well as stretch your muscles.

If you find yourself with just a few minutes to work out, grab this video and you'll get the most out of your time. --Joan Price

  • I must be nuts
    but this tape is a major YUCK. NOT for beginers. And if youre interested in staring at a very physically fit AND BORING instructor, then by all means by the tape! 8 Min abs is a better choice and so are the 15 min workouts by Kathy Smith "I want that body" series. At least both Kathy and the 8 min crew adjust the workout to suit all levels, and can keep your interest. If you are uncertain about proper form and alignement, etc. This 10 min workout delivers yep, 5 10 minute BORING segments, w/out all the other good stuff that comes with working out/healthy fitness outlook. There are better ways to spend the 10 bucks......more info
  • Not what I expected...........
    I can't say that this is one of my favorite workout videos. I got bored with the workouts. You sweat some after doing the the bootcamp and kickboxing segments together, but the camera angles are not the best. Also, if you find that you only like a few of them, you constantly have to fast forward to get to the ones you like. To be honest, I just found it to be pretty boring. I like more of an intense workout. ...more info
  • Great quick workouts
    This tape is an excellent choice for those on the go. If you don't have an hour to excercise you can just do a few of the activities together such as Boot Camp and then Pilates. It makes you feel good about yourself to be able to take a few minutes to focus on your personal health....more info
  • Intense!!
    I think this is a great tape for people who have no time at all. I just finshed the first segment(boot camp) and god am i sweating!!! But anyway i think it's great to tone up with but NOT for beginners. it's way too fast. but buy it if you think you can keep up....more info
  • Great Variation and Lots of fun!
    I have had this tape for a couple years now. Absolutely love it! The 5 different workouts completely satisfy my diverse energy. The ballet and yoga are especially excellent even though I enjoy all 5 segments. I get more benefit from doing one of the 10 minute segments along with my other training routines rather than doing all 5 segments in one continuous workout. On days I hit the treadmill I do the pilates or the ballet, whereas on days I strength train i will do the boot camp or kickboxing segments. The yoga segment is the perfect length for everyday! This tape is highly recommended....more info
  • 10- Minute solution
    Compared to The Firm's Fat Blaster and other cardio and fatburning workouts I think this workout is a little dissapointing. I didlike the idea of including a little of everything, yoga, Palates etc. but you tend to lose the intensity of a real "cardio" workout. I will use this video in conjunction with more intense workouts. It makes a nice change of pace but don't expect a heavy duty blow out class. Would be useful to use as a "light day" workout or to lengthen tight muscles. END...more info
  • Great tape, great price!
    I have an entire workout video library, but I have to say, I love this workout! You can do all five mini-workouts for a great entire body workout, or just do what sections interest you that day, depending on how much time you have. The pilates section is incredible! You can really feel your abs the next day! And, who can't find 10 minutes in their day for a mini-workout? I got this tape because I have a new baby, and sometimes 10 mintues is all I have. With this tape I can get a great, effective, and fun workout in every day!...more info

  • Great for busy moms!
    I love this tape! 10 minutes a day is about all the free time I have, and this tape helps me work exercise into my daily routine. I love the variety on the tape. If I'm not in the mood for Yoga, I can do the Pilates, or the "Boot Camp" segment, etc. You can pick and choose based on your mood. But best of all, you only need 10 minutes!...more info
  • Great way to fit exercise into a busy schedule
    10-Minute Solution consists of five complete 10-minute fitness programs, each showcasing a different exercise style. The programs are designed either to stand alone or to be performed together when time permits; you can customize the workout that's right for you. Instructor Michelle Nevidomsky Dozois is enthusiastic and motivating, and she provides good instruction for each workout style.

    The video begins with Boot Camp, a mix of classic toning exercises and short, low-impact cardio intervals. You will do lunges, bicep curls (with dumbells), tricep dips (with a chair), and push-ups for a good, full body workout. The second workout, Pilates, consists of intensive matwork for the abdominal area. The moves are quite challenging and would probably not be appropriate for those new to Pilates. Workout #3 is Ballet, with simple squats and raises designed to tone the legs. This section moves very quickly and might be a bit difficult to follow at first, especially for those unfamiliar with basic ballet terms.

    The fourth workout, Kickboxing, provides a brief aerobic workout that would probably be best utilized in combination with other cardio work. It starts with simple punches, moves into punch combinations with knee lifts, and then introduces various kicks. Finally, there are a few basic kick-punch combinations to finish. The last segment, Yoga, is an ideal conclusion to the workout or a nice stretch on its own. It begins with simple seated postures, moves on to hands and knees, and then includes just a few standing poses. This section ends with a seated stretch, and it is doable for those with all levels of flexibility.

    I enjoy the variety offered by this video. However, since the individual workouts are not very intense (with the exception of the Pilates section), I tend to use the video in combination with other workouts I own. Some sections of this video are probably too challenging for beginners, so I think it would work best for veteran exercisers who are having difficulties finding the time to work out....more info

  • Good basic workout
    Good basic video that gives you an introduction to other types of fitness. The yoga 10-minute section really isn't a workout - it's just stretching. Abs are great for days when your workout doesn't use your core. The sides of my legs usually ache the day after the ballet workout. Kickbox and boot camp are too short for any real cardio benefits, but add to another video and you have a full workout. I really like Michell Dozois and have purchased some of her other videos after this. She's motivating without being fake cheerful. ...more info
