The pace was perfect - I've done videos in a different app where it seems to either be all chat or rapid fire. This was inbetween! The lead trainer was great, the best one I've seen in a Popsugar video. She had great positivity and enthusiasm and even gave form tips I've never heard before, and I work out regularly.
I thoroughly enjoyed this workout, even more than the 10 min arm strength workout I had been doing prior. It's more challenging and fun too! The energy level and enthusiasm of all 3 ladies helps keep me motivated :)
Some of the moves got a little repetitive but overall I really enjoyed it. It was a tough workout. I did a 15 min dance routine to warm up so felt great when done. I live her stretches and modifications. I think I may even start with smaller weights 5 lb and move up to 8 lb with circuits.
Pretty good workout but I had to change some exercises. I have a pre existing low back issues (back surgery for spinal stenosis) and the twisting motion with the dumbbell and the one leg deadlift were pretty painful so I made up my own. But the instructor was fun so that was a plus. Next time I will get at least 20lb dumbbells!
I’ve been doing Jillian Michaels but finished her dvd so I have this a try. Such a better atmosphere and happier! Jillian is all work hard and keep going, which is great! But these girls threw in some banter and that helped me get through it that much faster. Definitely will keep doing popsugar!!
I am a 64 year old woman, who has done moderate exercise most of my life. Since I am not able to use the gym during the Corona Virus situation, I am doing more home workouts. This gave me such a good, quick workout. I will definitely put it in my favorites. Thank you!
I am home long-term during this whole social distancing thing and love that this program was offered for free! It got me motivated to take care of myself with all this free time. This was my first video I've done with Active.
I am such a quitter when it comes to tough leg workouts, but this had enough variety and modifications to keep me going! And I really need the leg workouts because I'm trying to get in shape for hiking and longer backpacking trips! I will definitely be coming back to this one. Full disclosure: I did quit in the final round, but my goal is to one day be able to do it all :)
Thank you for providing these resources during this crazy time!
This was just the right amount of strength and cardio I was looking for in a quick 30 minute workout! I broke a sweat without having to do burpees! Everyone in the video especially the lead instructor had great energy too and I liked the suggested modifications. I can't wait to try other workouts!
