Does the workout have the music in it or do you have to play the cd separately?
If anyone has these and can comment I would appreciate it, next week is my birthday so want to order, just didnt want to waste 200.00 if it wasnt like a real workout.
Yes, they are complete workouts, just like LMs. It has music, so you don't play it separately. Plus, you get a CD with the soundtrack.

They have previews of each workout. Watch the clips. It will give you a good idea what each class is about.

I called Power Music Group about the War workouts. I was going to order but I was told that War 4 was coming out March 4. The person I spoke with said she heard that War 4 was supposed to be really good. I decided to hold off on my order until I see those clips. I also asked about a comparison between War 1-3. She said that #1 and #3 are the most popular and #2 the least. I did a search online about discount codes for this company. It appears that they had a sale around Feb 14. I asked the person that I spoke with about sales. She said that they do have them and she expects the next one to be in the Spring. She advised me to sign up for their newsletter so I can get new info as it is released. She also mentioned that new workouts are released quarterly. I did get the email notice about War 4 coming out on March 4.

Hi Gennasis.

Are you enjoying the workouts you purchased? I would love to hear reviews from any one who has the workouts.

Thank you.

Deb

I still haven't purchased these, either. I have been waiting for a sale to come along since the workouts are on the expensive side. Now, there are 4 War workouts. They add a new one each quarter, I think.

I purchased just one to try it out, the music is good and it is like pump because of the reps, but i didnt like the fact you could hear the breathing of the instructor in her microphone. I know it sounds silly but for some reason it bothered me. I understand the production isnt going to be like a beachbody video, but it just annoyed me.

Just bumping this old thread up as I have become totally addicted to Power Music Group Rx workouts!!!
VF friend Lesia turned me on to a few of these and I can't rave enough.

Yes they are somewhat like Les Mills in that you get a DVD, CD and instructor notes with the workout but they do have their own way of doing things.
Maybe not as fun (to me) as Les Mills but really awesome.

My favorite are the Boot workouts which are fantastic total body workouts. Mostly using bodyweight but also incorporating dumbells on some of them.

I just discovered Axis which are core focused total body workouts and I LOVED them!! NOT like LM Cxworx at all although they are 30 minutes each. I liked them so much I bought 3 more! I put two together for a full hour workout but perfect as an add-on.

I have Power Step which IS actually a lot like LM Body Step. I like them but prefer LM in this case. Mostly because Mark Nu'u and Lisa Osborne are in them.

I have Sport which is like a step workout with weights. I've only tried one but seemed to me to be a heckuva metabolic workout.

I have tried one RIP which is very similar to Body Pump but the format is a little different. But same high rep, body part to each song format. Fun too.

Only one I haven't tried yet is WAR and I'll be doing that tomorrow. I am a NUT about LM Body Combat and can say they are my favorite workouts ever. So hoping this one will be fun too.

To further rave and enable, I'll tell you they have a great 75% off sale going on right now.

That's only $7 or $9 for most of their DVDs. No I am not affiliated with them at all, I just like what I like.

Kate, do the sale prices show up when you check out? I put a *Transform" dvd into the cart, and it is full price. It could be that those are not on sale.

Eta: I was in the wrong section. Never mind!


Thanks!
Sherry

I see a cycling workout with music by Hozier..... I am likely doomed.

Kate, have you done the Boot workouts? I looked at these a while ago and your review is making me take another look!

ETA: Duh, I just saw you mentioned them at the beginning of your post!
