great workout only 1 flaw in my opinion
By Kindle Customer
I found it to be a pretty good workout. It's broken up into 3 sections with a "power move" in each section. The first is a dance section. I cannot dance but I found the moves easy to follow after the second workout. The 2nd section is kickboxing which I was highly disappointed with. I've done kickboxing workouts off and on for years. This was not it. Mainly it was bob and weaves ans shuffles with some kicks and a knee strike that involved you leg and knee barely coming off the ground. Section 3 was my favorite and to me the toughest. It was cardio basic aerobics. But it was done at a fast clip and I felt a good burn by the end. There's. A really nice warm up but I would have liked a longer cool down. I just did my own stretches after the cool down was over. Overall I would recommend this Dvd to beginners that are ready to try something a little harder.

This is a very solid beginner to intermediate workout. It's just all around fun to do, the moves are not too challenging and it gets your heart rate going. If you want a more intense workout and something to really make you sweat I would suggest something more challenging. I work out about 4-5 days a week on the treadmill and some pilates. This DVD doesn't make me sweat all that much, but it gets me going and it's fun fun fun!

Good for Beginners
By S. N. Shively
This video is broken down as follows: Warm up, Latin Groove 1 & 2 (with 1-minute PowerBurst), Cardio Thai Box 1 & 2 (with 1-minute PowerBurst), Sweatshop 1 & 2 (with 1-minute PowerBurst), Cooldown, and 5-minute Abs. The routines increase in difficulty per section.
I started this video as I was getting back into the swing of cardio excerise. I think it is a good starting point, but it gets easy fairly quickly if you do it several times a week (which I did). I'd rate her as fair when it comes to leading. She does break down the moves alot which helps. Some people mentioned the routines are difficult, but it just takes some practice, then you recognize the patterns and it becomes much easier.
I like the Sweatshop section the best since it is the most challenging. I think the routine is fun, and she is a fun instructor. To increase the level of difficulty, I add ankle weights. That makes it more fun and challenging!
