I have been doing CrossFit for more than 2 years now. About a year ago, I started working out 5 mornings at week. As such, I would say that I am fairly fit with toned muscles. I was excited to check out Tracie Long's Defining Shape DVD not because I planned on replacing it with CrossFit, but more as a supplement on the weekends or on the rare occasions that I am not able to make it my box (CrossFit Gym). The DVD I received to review consists of a 50 minutes workout. It includes a warm up/ stretches before Tracie Long moves to different parts of lower body and shoulders. I am really used to the high intensity workouts for CrossFit, so Defining Shape is definitely different for me. I thought the pacing was good. It is a DVD that any woman could follow. The only downside is that you need to have weights, so if you plan on getting this DVD, be sure to pick up some weights for yourself. I recommend picking up lighter weights if you haven't done this type of workouts before. This past Friday, I went to two different CrossFit workouts with my friends. Needless to say, my body was a complete wrack when I woke up Saturday morning. I popped in Tracie Long Longevity: Defining Shape DVD and did the 50 minutes workout. I found that my body felt much better after the DVD workout.
