Davina: Power of 3 (DVD)
Advantages: Easy to follow, great results, fun
I bought this about 4 years ago and it was the first workout DVD I tried, to be followed unsuccessfully by several others. This is the only one I have stuck with.
The DVD is split up into 10 parts:
*Legs & Bums (Hard!!)
*Davina on Clothes
*Davina on Food
*Davina's 7 day eating plan
Yes, it's very 'Davina', but I tend to just watch the sections from Warm up to Cool Down, the other parts aren't really necessary but a good added bonus expecially if you are looking for tips.
Davina is flanked by her 2 personal trainers, Mark and Jackie Wren who do most of the talking, and Davina is doing the workout with you so you're not alone in a sweaty struggle. Jackie demonstrates ways to make the exercises a bit easier for those who find it difficult to keep up or want a more gentle work out, so this is a real plus-point.
The warm up is just enough to get the heart rate up and then we go into the toughest parts, which are the Legs & Bums, Upper Body and Abdominals. Each of these sections last for about 15 min and have fat burning intervals in them which last a minute - these are enough to really get your heart rate up and you will need lots of water!
What's good is that if you want to work on a particular part of your body or don't have time to do the full workout, you can just go to the section you want.
The cool down is excellent and really leaves you feeling relaxed after what is a tough workout. In comparison to several others I have tried, Davina's is by far the best. I found Nell McAndrew's tough but boring and not varied enough (it just felt like 45 minutes of jogging on the spot to me), and Charlie Brooks' disappointing (the instructor is quite annoying, and the results not as good as with Davina), and several 'dance'-themed workouts which just made me realise I have no co-ordination.
Unlike other celebrities' DVDs, this isn't a quick fix workout (where they seem to regain the weight just as quickly as they lost it) it gives real results and is fairly easy to stick to. Like other DVD's, the songs and banter get repetitive after a while but I sometimes put the DVD on mute and listen to my own music instead. Overall a great workout, you really can feel and see the results, and much better than the rest.
