I will be as soon as they come in. Talked with guys who have and they all say the same thing. Have plenty of towels handy.

I have spinnervals 9 and I've done the workout a couple times. Weight loss? Probably not any more effective than a similar lenght of time doing sprint intervals. Have towels handy, you will need them. You will also need clipless pedals or toe straps to do the one legged exercises and a cadence meter. Other than that it's a good workout, have fun and be prepared to deal with 90 minutes of crappy music and a smug coach Troy.

A few of them are longer than the others, like Base Builder 5.
I find the quality of the videos variable; I have been hoping someone would
do a thread titled 'What's your favorite Spinervals?'.

There is an option to turn off the music you know. I connect to Winamp and then launch one of my favorite Deep House Internet Radio Stations...much better. What I like most about the DVDs is that Coach Troy keeps track of the time .
