I have many workout videos collecting dust in my home, mostly because they are either too complicated or just boring. Skinny Bitch – Boot Camp is no different.
In the introduction, both trainers try to be edgy and hip by regularly repeating the word "bitch" and other borderline profanities, when it really just comes off as fake and obnoxious. Rory Freedman, and to a lesser extent, Kim Barnouin, are annoying as hell. The constant banter between them throughout each workout is distracting enough, that if I were to ever watch this video again it would be with the volume off. I don't care about what they had for lunch, or their friend's astrological sign. The last thing I want to hear when working out, is a trainer telling me, "A girl always needs a backup" when suggesting to use a vibrator as a free weight. Yes, they really said that. The whole over-the-top "we are cool and can relate to all women" thing turned me off from this video more than anything.
Although this video claims to be for every woman "No matter where you are on your own 'Skinny Bitch' path" it would be quite difficult for a beginner. No introduction is offered for the fast-paced, complicated exercises most of the sections have. Being an out-of-shape beginner myself, I found it hard to keep up. By the time I figured out what they were doing, they had already moved on to another workout move. I also had to keep pausing the video to run and get a mat, or a can of soup to play the part of a weight because they don't tell you in advance that you will need them.
Overall, I'm sure this video would be fine for an advanced workout as long as you mute the volume. I personally, am not excited for anymore of their DVDs.Powered by Sidelines
