  • I am having tons of trouble getting this video to load! I get as far as 4-5 words from Nicole, and then buffering begins. Also, I am a little confused. If this is called DAY 4, where are days 1-3? Help!! - 8/16/2014 3:14:36 PM

    This is a great "office" workout. I can lock my office door and do this no problem. I also feel it in my legs from the high knee lifts! Perfect when you feel like you need to do something, but can't get sweaty!! - 1/24/2014 2:41:05 PM

    These are very good exercises that I promise to follow in a bid to lose weight. - 1/23/2013 11:05:55 AM
  • These exercises appear to be ones that I can do without major pain in my bad knee. I will be incorporating them in my regular strengthening routine. - 9/6/2012 1:51:20 PM
  • Great. - 6/2/2008 12:21:51 AM
  • I notice that when the bootcamp challenge was issued, it was the bikini bootcamp, but now it's the swimsuit bootcamp. Have we become modest? Or have we lost our confidence? Just curious. - 5/28/2008 6:47:25 PM
