If, inside every large woman, there's a thin one longing to get out, TV presenter Vanessa Feltz has proved you can liberate her. Vanessa's workout video starts with a black-and-white retrospective of the fat celebrity we all once knew. In a voiceover, she tells us of the insults she had to endure, such as being called "Mrs Blobby". She was so unfit she couldn't climb stairs and was scared of getting stuck in turnstiles. The video goes colour to reveal the new Vanessa. Her misery ended, she tells us, when her now ex-husband ("ex" is said with relish) issued an ultimatum: "Lose weight, or lose me." She lost both, and feels all the better for it. She has shrunk from size 24 to size 12. How did Vanessa do it? The answer is Dennis Duhaney, a charming taskmaster with dreadlocks and a London accent. Before launching into Dennis's aerobic exercises, Vanessa explains his eating plan. Drink lots of water, have five portions of fruit and veg daily, eat little and often, and make your last meal early in the evening. Then, with a warning to anyone with doubts to see their doctor first, the warm-up begins. The exercise routines become progressively harder and faster, moving through Gear One to Gear Four. Essentially, they are variations of marching, boxing and kicking done to the beat of a background soundtrack. Handheld weights come into it towards the end of the video, but Vanessa says tins of baked beans will do just as well. It finishes with a cool down which is vaguely based on yoga. To follow the routines, you'd need plenty of space, and preferably a sprung floor. So, could this video help you lose over four stone in 12 weeks, as Vanessa claims on the video cover? Maybe. But, probably, only if Dennis came with it. --Joan Byrne

I was pleasantly surprised by this video - a really interesting format of warm up, 3 levels of aerobics, punches and kicks, free weights and floor work. All in manageable stages. Unlike a lot of videos or classes - this is NOT 'prancing around in leotards'! It's sensible, structured and clearly explained exercises for real women. Easy to do in a small space and easy to adapt into 10 minute sections if you don't have time to do the whole tape. The male instructor with Vanessa is a hunk (always a bonus)...
