This is a basic interval type workout, nowever in my opinion it is over long. Some recent research has indicated that workouts longer than 30 minutes have some degree of inhibition and degradation on the quality of the workout. If you were to increase the intensity and reduce the number of repeats you may find you obtain better results.
Not denigrating the workout just saying that a shorter more intense one may be more beneficial.
It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

I absolutely love this cardio workout; it can be varied by ability level as well. Plus it has very little "hard" running in it. I do this one at least once a week; it makes you feel great when you're finished! It's amazing how a workout done in under one hour on one machine can make you sweat so much! Trust me, take the 50 minutes out of your day and try it!
