Marie, I'm with you. That's even worse than Rachel using the B-word as an acronym throughout FBB.

Wonder if they shout it throughout the workout... "Be the MILF! Come on, you're a MILF!" no, thanks.

Really? LOL How incredibly insulting to older women. Who writes this stuff?

m42, it's a term popularized in the 90's by the movie American Pie. It stands for Mom I'd like to F---
Tacky name for a workout, IMO.

Yeah, their marketing and names leave a LOT to be desired... but unless they are screaming out the MILF comment in the workouts, I'm ok with it, if the content is worth it. I can overlook a lot, and hopefully this is no different. And honestly, I look better now than when I was in my 20s...

Yes, it does, but it's obviously a play on a commonly used pejorative that stands for something else altogether. Try Google, or use the Urban Dictionary. There's no way that wasn't intentional.

I'm glad people are excited about this set. I like some of the workouts from the DB set, but not enough to pay this much. I do hope Darby reads these threads, though, and recognizes that for the price she wants, she needs better production values, specifically:
  • Chaptering
  • Rehearsals! The modifiers need to know HOW they are to modify. They should not have to be cued every time, nor should they have to look questioningly at the instructor until they figure out how to make something lower in impact.
  • Premixes
  • Audio options such as "Cues only"

Just my .02. Hopefully that doesn't make people feel defensive. If you use workouts a lot, whatever you pay for them is worth it to me, IMO. I just think Darby's audience will stay limited at this price point unless she addresses the bigger production issues from the last set.

I figured it was a play on words, but I really doubt that they will be shouting out milf during the workout. I want these even though they look very similar to the set I already have and never use.

Yeah. Definite turnoff for me.

ITA with you! I like the Dreambody set, but it would be so much better if it was more polished and rehearsed. In fusion mix, Darby shouldn't have to keep reminding the modifier to modify.
