September’s Top Workout DVD: Denise Austin Sculpt & Burn Body Blitz
Best for: Intermediate exercisers in need of a peppy motivator; those short on time who prefer squeezing in several short workouts rather than a long one.
Why it’s a star: Experienced and enthusiastic trainer Denise Austin (she worked with the original fitness innovator Jack LaLanne himself!) leads you through four speedy yet effective workouts, plus a warm-up and cooldown, during this new DVD. Users get a little taste of many fitness trends: Kickboxing, kettlebells (you can swap in a light dumbbell) and sport-focused drills during the 10-minute segments. Since many muscles are challenged at once during moves like a lunge with a weighted punch and jumping squats with jumping jack arms, you can still get results in a short amount of time!
