Review: Rockin Body performed by Shaun T


A few months ago, I bought a Groupon deal of The Rockin’ Body workout sale, what was supposed to be seven dvds, a calendar of workouts and a cookbook.

What I got a few weeks later, was 2 dvds,  a workout calendar and a tiny cookbooklet .  Was I surprised how little actually showed up.  Still, two dvds for $20.

Let me say, having done the workouts, they are really not for anyone with health issues or over 40, my personal opinion.  I have a handful of health issues but relatively healthy (hwp-previous workouts). I had to stop after 2 1/2 weeks to take care of them and continued to finish when I was healthy enough. A week later I had to stop following the exercise dvds because the exercises exacerbated other health issues.  Started again and had to stop again for a few days, then finally finished the dvds about six weeks later.  I was not impressed and felt overcharged.

They did help me lose water weight (along with a meal replacement shake  from IdealShape) and I did sweat a lot from the exercises (I did a ALOT of marching in place) but I did not care for the perpetually peppy Shaun T, all the camel toes staring at me, nor did I care for some of the people who appeared to be strung out on SOMETHING that made them uber-peppy, spaced out and grinning idiots.  Put the men in the same pussypant spandex as the women were (barely) wearing or put the women in big, oversized, bulky sweatpants and three times too large shirts.  The clothing difference was distracting and sometimes silly.

There was a person, Tanya, who did modified versions of exercises and I had to even modify those exercises. Some of the scheduled exercise bits ran to 90 minutes but I found my tolerance was 30-45 minutes of constant yelling/screaming, badgering non-stop, push till you drop exercising.  Pushups were one major part of the exercise schedule but I do not have upper body strength due to dialysis I went though, so I did more marching in place.

I would give the 2 dvd’s I did receive a C+–they are not for anyone over 35-40+, anyone with  health issues as i have and certainly not for people who have endurance issues.  I could have lost the water weight by myself and saved myself being badgered and screamed at.
