28 Day Boot Camp with Coach Nicole - DVD Review

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Hey SparkleLovelies!!

I want to take this quick blog to let you know about the DVD SparkPeople sent me to try out and review for the SparkNation!! :)

I was so excited when I was chosen to receive this DVD. I adore Coach Nicole and she always makes me feel great about myself, even when I can’t do a workout initially. I never beat myself up when she’s there motivating me.

The DVD is called 28 Day Boot Camp with Coach Nicole. I know, I know. ‘Shelby, a Boot Camp workout, really?? That seems a little intense.’ Don’t worry, I was a little scurred, too. But knowing how Coach Nicole trains, I was up for the challenge.

When Day 1 came around, I was anticipating that workout all day while I was at work. I got home, got changed, sluffed off the makeup and threw in the DVD. Well, not really. I didn’t want it scratched. I gently placed the DVD into the DVD player. You are given the option of creating your own workout or sticking with the 28 Day Plan. I chose the latter. Coach Nicole knows me well enough to know what I need, I trust her. ;-)



HAHAHA. I am completely uncoordinated based on Day 1. I couldn’t get the footwork for some reason. I’m not sure if it was me, or if it was the video. I couldn’t seem to get a good grip on HOW she was making the moves look so fluid, so I sort of improvised and kept my body moving. The visuals weren’t as inspiring as I would have liked, just a basic almost-empty background. The assistants showing altered/simplified moves seemed pleasant, but not overly enthused to be there. I need to be pumped up! I like loud colors and louder music, so Day 1 just wasn’t my cup of tea.

Hoping it gets more poppin’ later on…or maybe I need to be more patient. It was just Day 1 after all...

Due to the passing of my grandfather (I was out of state without the DVD), I was unable to workout to the DVD like I had planned. And with the weather in Phoenix being so gorgeous, I've spent more time outdoors than cooped up in my apartment. I anxiously look forward to getting all 28 days in. I know it will be great!


(FYI – the DVD is available at Walmart and that members will get 250 SparkPoints for buying their DVD at Walmart, and will be entered to win a $500 Walmart gift card for purchasing before Jan. 31, 2014.)

Here is the link to purchase the DVD directly from SparkPeople: www.sparkpeople.com/28daybootc

    I don't generally like working out to DVDs but love coach Nicole. I'm looking forward to hearing more review as you go through the boot camp.

Sorry about your grandfather.

    This isn't new is it because I got the Boot Camp work out last year at Target.
I have gone through the program several times and can even do grapevines now without having to think about it.

So sorry to hear about your Grand Father. emoticon

    I'm sorry for the loss of your Grandpa .....

I will be looking forward to when you can participate in & thus review the rest of the DVD. Based on your comments for Day 1, not sure I'd buy it. Let us know if subsequent days get better in terms of the things you've noted so far.

Thanks for writing.

EDIT = I also love Coach Nicole but I'm not going to buy a DVD that lacks excitement, the ability to {somewhat} easily mimic the movements and has a dull environment.

    Thanks for the honest review. I myself am IN LOVE with my Spark Tracker as it gently reminds me (with blaring number on my START page) that I need to get moving...

    Thanks for your critique. I have Coach Nicole's DVD's and love all of them and the routines are great for people with back or knee problems. I love the pace and vocal instructions/tips from Coach Nicole. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Beautiful Shelby! I'm so sorry to hear about your grandfather. Sending hugs your way!

Thank you for the honest review of this DVD. It's one of those things I keep considering buying and then never actually buy... not sure it's my cup of tea either.

    Hello! Glad to find you once again. I've seen a couple people review the DVD and doesn't seem like it will keep you "hooked" for 28 days. MAYBE I'll give it a try and rotate it into my dvd workouts! Sorry about your grandfather's passing.
