Crave Results DVD Reviews

Angie Miller's Crave Results is a solid fitness DVD featuring a vigorous workout that puts multiple muscle groups to the test. Host and fitness professional Angie Miller guides the viewer through a workout peppered with "cardio bursts" designed to get the heart going and improve endurance. This is a total-body workout; a resistance band and step platform can be helpful, but are ultimately optional. The viewer may use the menu options to perform the entire workout or mix and match the workout segments, including warm up, core work, stretches, pre mixes and more. Crave Results is a demanding yet rewarding addition to fitness DVD collections. 63 min.

I have all of Angie's workouts. While I didn't like her immediately, I now appreciate the quality of her workouts and find her to be a great instructor. I thought this one was a good routine, but maybe not quite as challenging as her other two. There is some cardio in-between but if you're looking for a lot of it, this isn't the one. I found the workout sweaty enough and the time went by quickly. She instructs well and it's easy to follow. The exercises are mostly multi-muscle compound moves and the cardio is in short bursts. The warmup is like a mini-cardio routine (optionally on the step) and the core section is standing and prone, so no crunches here. There are also some premixes which are shorter alternate options. The background exerciser shows modifications (for example, Angie uses a step, she doesn't, or during the band section, she uses weights). I definitely liked it and will do it again.

I would say this is a good workout, but I got distracted by the non-stop talking through the entire workout, including the high-impact cardio sessions. She didn't even sound out-of-breath during those! I liked the balance challenges and the new core moves that I haven't seen before.

Good workout for all over. I like how she has the exerciser doing the workout without the step giving other options. This is a good workout when I am between wanting to go light or hard. She does talk through out the workout, but it's mostly about proper form. She seems more at ease than her Core and Strength Fusion workout (like that one too)

I really enjoyed doing this workout. I like the options of using the step or not using it. There are days I want to workout with a step and other days I don't. I look for workouts that are easy to follow and that have variety in them and this one is both. I am not waiting for the workout to be over, instead, I am focused on my form . Angie is a great instructor and lets you know the correct way to do each move. Can't wait for more of her workouts. I felt the burn the very first time I did her workout.

I am always hesitant to ever write anything but positive things about these videos. I think Angie is a great instructor and her exercises are amazing and very effective, but the non-stop chatter and constant use of the word "yeah" is driving me nuts. I even hesitate to do them but for the fact that they're so good. I could turn the sound off but I like to listen for cues for what's coming up next. I'm still giving her 5 stars.

I enjoyed this DVD and recommend. She is very didactically and all exercises are easy to follow but it requires strength and body work
