I was looking for a beginners video with low impact due to knee and heel issues. I was able to do this video with little to no adjustments.I did the side to side arms instead of jumping jacks other wise loved it. I am not in shape 260 lbs and can't do all those difficult videos this was just right got me going heart wise and made me sweat also burned my muscles. Loved it.
Bring that I am disabled, I find this video wonderful. I have modified some of the movements and am able to accomplish it. I only do it 3 times per week at this point but hope to move it to 7 days a week someday soon.
I am 319lbs and I was able to do this video from the first time with no problems. To help keep pace with the instructor do smaller movements which will allow you to keep up. Also think about modifying some of the movements to suit you.
Great video, I couldn't get up for my early morning class today, and evening I am not gona have enough time to get my cardio in. I was browsing around the spark people and decided to do couple of cardio from the clips. Boy I never though they will break the sweat like the cross ramp machine in gym.
Ay ay ay! Think Zumba here - low impact does not necessarily mean easy. My armband registers this as higher intensity than the kickboxing videos. If you're really a beginner, pace yourself by minimizing the arm movements in the early part of the video. It stops abruptly, so if you want cool-down time factor that in.
I agree that this is WAY too fast for someone who weighs a lot more than the instructor, or who is new to aerobics. Maybe It should be labeled as such. There is no way in this world that I'd be able to do much of this...yet!
I very much enjoyed this video. Honestly, the repetition of the moves made it easy to follow and check myself if I found something I needed to modify * the over head pulls and knee lifts skew my balance so I lowed my arms* . Thanks for a high energy fast paced video.

I saw the words Low Impact and thought " beginner." This video is fine for people who are already in really great shape and who have done lots of aerobics classes but I found it WAY too fast. I found the constant changing (about every 10 seconds) to be really disconcerting. Like many others, I did not even come close to finishing this video. The instructor is great but the title of this video needs to be changed to match it's target audience.

I found the video a little fast, but I will be doing it again. It was fun and had a few Zumba/Latin moves.
