As fitness tapes go, this one is extremely amiable and conducive to exercise. Bubba Smith, the pro football player turned actor, leads the 88 minutes of exercises—there is one section for beginners, then another for the more advanced. While (at 6'8" and 245 pounds or so) his physique is still the stuff of which quarterbacks' nightmares are made, Smith seems very natural, occasionally huffing and puffing and showing some strain like a normal person. The group of people he's exercising with, while all fit and attractive, are also human enough to drag a little at times. Nobody here is going to arouse thoughts of "I'll never look like that."
