Fit At 40 Plus (Special Interest/Exercise)
Sound: C Extras: C- Programs: C+
Exercise video lives on DVD and the new Fit At 40 Plus
series is aimed at women, but could also include men. Eloise DeJoria and Janice Nichols host and perform all the
exercises over four DVDs meant for different levels of activity. The four volumes are:
Minute-Full Body + 32 Minute-Advanced Workout
These are easy, competent and pleasant works, if not the
most exciting, spectacular and amazing ever offered. Each runs about 46 minutes and is fine for what it is. The volumes are sold separately.
The full frame 1.33 x 1 color image has some digititis
from being shot on professional NTSC video, then being transferred with some
trouble. The PCM 2.0 16Bit/48kHz Stereo
is also limited and had echo, with the instructor’s voices being too far away
for this type of program. Extras on
each DVD are a brief explanation 0f the hosts and what Pilates are, plus
recommendations for the other three volumes.
