Today and tomorrow are the last days of the month, and the last days of my personal challenge. Being an incomplete week, I didn't have a theme in mind, so I just chose something that looked like fun.
I remember Tamilee Webb well from my preteen years: I subscribed to one of those clubs that starts you off with an empty 3-ring binder and sends you cards about stuff like make-up techniques, how to navigate your way through social awkwardness, and Does the Boy You Have A Crush On Like You Back? quizzes. Tamilee was the "fitness expert," and every month the pack had a new mini-workout or set of exercises to get a high rear end, etc. I never got that tight little butt, but there will always be a place in my heart for Tamilee.
I picked Fit to the Hits mainly for this reason.
The other reason is that it's set to Motown music, which I love.
The DVD is pretty short -- only half an hour -- but it's the most fun I've had doing a blog video in a few weeks. There are six songs (all familiar to anyone with a passing interest in oldies) total, a warm-up, four faster routines, and a cool-down. The steps are simple enough that you can really get into it and feel like you're dancing, not just doing aerobics. After feeling somewhat shamed watching the extremely talented kids in the videos from last week, I was so glad to not trip over my feet doing this one.
It's not a terribly demanding workout, so it would be appropriate for beginners, or for sometime when you just want to enjoy yourself and move around the room a bit but not get too sweaty.
Fun find: one of the gals in the back is Misty Tripoli, of the totally awesome Body Groove DVD, which was the very first video I did for this project.
No +/- for Fit to the Hits because it is completely what you would expect.
