  • I really should feel guilty. It's an exercise program. You're supposed to work out along with it. So why have I spent so many mornings simply watching it, slack-jawed, sitting on my couch? Blame the mesmerizingly gorgeous Kiana Tom!moreless

    You know, exercise programs are pretty much a dime a dozen. They start to all look the same: An impossibly chipper host/aerobics instructor with an impossibly toned body working out on an impossibly beautiful beach with a gaggle of impossibly buff acolytes. I've seen 'em all....then came Kiana. Granted, the basic formula is still the same, but Kiana herself is what distinguishes this show from all the others. Yeah, she's impossibly buff, but she somehow makes it seem attainable. And for someone so incredibly gorgeous, she really comes across as accessible and down-to-earth. The exercise routines are sensible and Kiana really seems to care about her audience's health.moreless
