Susie Q Arms of a First Lady Workout DVD Review & Giveaway

If you saw Dr Oz’s Ultimate Flab Buster Workout with SusieQ, a celebrity fitness trainer with an energetic and inspirational personality, then I am sure that you had the same question that many people were asking — does Susie Q have her own workout DVD?  The answer is a resounding YES! Her DVD is called Susieq Fitlife: Arms of a First Lady, and she gave me one DVD to test out and another five to give away to my readers… which I will tell you how to win at the end of the review!

Dr Oz & SusieQ

I do not care if you are a Democrat or a Republican… if you love Obama or hate Obama… there is one thing that nobody can deny, and that is that Michelle Obama has amazing arms.  Susie Q seems to be on the same workout plan as our First Lady, because her arms could not be any more perfect.  But there are lots of workout DVDs on the market, so how does Susie Q differentiate herself?  This question has so many answers, because her DVD is truly unique (and fun!).  First of all, what good is a workout DVD if you are not inspired by it and never pop it into your DVD player?  Susie Q’s personality was made to be an inspirational trainer and that comes through loud and clear in the DVD.  This is a workout DVD that won’t collect dust and that you will use over and over again.

Dr Oz's Girls

I received my Susieq Fitlife: Arms of a First Lady DVD in the afternoon, and I decided to give it a test run that same evening.  If I want to get Michelle Obama’s arms, there can be no procrastinating!  My first workout was challenging, but I made it through the entire DVD and truly felt like I had a great workout, all in under an hour.  I love Susie Q’s names for her moves like “Armed Force Raise,” “The 40-HR Lady” and “The New Bama Swing.”  I was surprised though that the DVD actually worked out my entire body, not just my arms (although a great focus is of course on your arms).

Susie Q Arms Of A First Lady Review

There are other great surprises that Susie Q includes in her Susieq Fitlife: Arms of a First Lady DVD, such as her segment called “Watch Your Mouth!” where Wellness Coach Sal Fichera teaches you about nutrition in your kitchen.  Another great segment, especially for those of us on a budget, is called SusieQ Sculpt, where she discusses how to use household items to get in shape.

The true test of any workout DVD is: do you see results.  It is too soon to tell how amazing my arms truly can be, but after just a week, my arms already have a bit more tone.  So I can’t wait to see what happens when I continue using it over the next month.  The fact that I have actually done Susie Q’s workout for an entire week definitely bodes well for my future of being able to stick with this program.  I’m telling you, it is literally impossible to not love Susie Q!  I cannot wait to see where she goes from here, because I know we will be seeing a lot more of this spunky, fun, energetic lady!

    What mos excites me about this workout is that the first lady has amazing arms – and I can’t wait to work mine out!

  7. says

    I would LOVE to win this. I’m 41 and I have really started working out again this year more regularly and I can tell a difference. I have flabby triceps so I’d love to do this workout, especially since I wear a lot of sleeveless clothes!

  8. dianad says

    I have many different DVD work-outs routines. I like the fact that this one focuses solely on arm work. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway

  9. Julie says

    What excites me the most about this dvd is the chance to finally have some upper body strength. I’m don’t want to be bulky, just lean muscle like those Michelle Obama arms!

  10. Amy Brewer says

    I am most excited about toning up my arms..I have flabby ones and this would be great for me.

  11. Cassandra H says

    What excites me most about this DVD is that it will help me get rid of my bat wings 🙂 My arms would look good for once!

  12. Little Miss Sunshine says

    The SusieQ Sculpt section sounds great – I only know a few of those kinds of tricks, like using soup cans instead of hand weights.

  13. Callie says

    Any new workout video excites me (try to change it up) and any new inspirational teacher who can “teach” my workout class any time I want to take it.


  14. Julie Marks says

    I have suscribed to your newsletter. Pump me up with motivation! Waiting with anticipation for your arm DVD:)

    What excites me most is envisioning how I can transform my arms with help from Susie Q Arms!

  16. Hanna says

    I don’t really have much time to work out lately, so this seems like it would be an easy way to fit it into my day.

  17. says

    It excites me, that there is a segment called “Watch Your Mouth!” where Wellness Coach Sal Fichera teaches you about nutrition in your kitchen.

  18. Shernette says

    I am 39 years old and I am not pleased with my body frame. I am told all the time you look great for my size……..but I am sick of hearing that. I have no desire to be a size 4 but I would love to transform my body. Therefore, need and want to focus on every area of my body not just my arms.

  19. Diana says

    It would be nice to not have flabby upper arms. This dvd reinforces the fact that having nice upper arms is doeable. Real women like us in the real world are in the dvd so we can relate to it better. I want a copy.

  20. says

    Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.

    Please let me know where you got your design. With

    In July, 1887, a credit application was heard inside the Clermont Warden’s Court to get a reef claim
    200 yards west of Hurley’s Dam, and the ‘Telegram’ states:.
    After aiming towards about two minutes and a half, he pulled the
    trigger. Much maudlin sentimentally, and empty declaration, have
    been written and spoken about crime, and up against the punishment of criminals with death.
