I have to admit that these were the very first Tone It Up workouts that I’d ever done. You’ve most likely heard about Karena and Katrina at some point. They have their own website as well as lots of workouts on their youtube channel that you can check out.
The One Day Fat Blast DVD has two workouts on it. The first is a total body workout and the second focuses on your butt and core. Neither workout uses any equipment so it’s perfect if you’re skipping the gym and working out at home instead. Both workouts were 30 minutes long.
I wasn’t quite sure what I was expecting when I did my first One Day Fat Blast workout, but I have to admit that I was impressed when I finished it. The instructions and form tips were right on. There were lots of compound movements. This means that you workout more than one body part at a time, which is great when you’re short on time.
I thought this DVD was great. The workouts were tough without being too hard. You could do modifications to make it a bit easier or harder, so this DVD would be suitable for most people. It didn’t take long for me to be sweaty. My core was sore after both workouts as well.
Both Katrina and Karena come across as really friendly. They have a much different approach than Jillian Michaels who is more drill sergeant like. They’re encouraging and feed off each other. It was nice to have one of them doing the exercise while the other one pointed out things to be aware of.
Another thing I liked about these workouts was that they took water breaks. I never knew I wanted a DVD workout to do that until Tone It Up did it. It’s so handy to have a bit of time built in to take a drink from a water bottle instead of having to pause it or miss a few reps from the next move. It was seriously handy.
