SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SUPER SHAPE-UP PROGRAM
Take three gorgeous models, put them in tight gym clothes and add some toe-tapping music. What do you get? Who cares?! You think we took notes? Seriously, the exercises in this well-produced trio of tapes (50 minutes each) are easy to watch—if not always easy to do. The routines are clearly aimed at working on the feminine form, though men will also be, um, entertained.
Filmed at Connecticut's Norwich Inn & Spa, the video shows Elle MacPherson (stretching and strength training), Cheryl Tiegs (aerobic interval training) and Rachel Hunter (body shaping) as they lead their own personally designed programs. The models (especially Tiegs) are relaxed, sincere and natural. No surprise. They even manage to be likable when uttering such banalities as "exercise changed my life," which is tougher, surely, than executing any deep knee bend. (HBO Video, $19.99; 800-621-7026)
