I got the weighted gloves & accompanying cd at the last woot. Ignoring the fact that the gloves look like they have a part of female anatomy attached to the back, I must say that they are very nice and give a good extra boost to the workout. The dvd is... not for beginners. Not for beginners at all. The lady was calling out "you're looking good! keep it going!" and I'm jogging in place sobbing "I'm not looking good! I'm not looking good at all! You're a liar, lady! You're a liar!" Also, the video has a LOT of jumping around, so if you've got people living below you (aka apartment buildings) it might not be the best choice.
