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.
I LOVE this video! I've done it so many times that I can do this video while watching tv. I repeat this video all day long until I burn off most of the calories I consume. I can do every exercise in this video without having to pause and take a breath. Some of the other ones on here are more intense. I really enjoy this video.
I went to this video because it was listed in the beginner category, it's not for beginners unless the beginner is in fantastic shape to begin with. It's not a bad workout though, but I could only do half of it before the room started spinning and I was heading towards the floor. The instructor is very good, and I loved what I could do of it, I just don't feel it's for beginners. When I can get to this level, I have it bookmarked and will come back to it again.

This was my first day with Spark and this video was a lot of fun. I can't wait to see what else there is waiting for me!
I saved this to my favorites bar. I did this and felt great during and after. When it cuts out that is the end if you want it to be. Being that it is only 12 minutes I went to Cardio in Blast DVD- Low Impact with Nicole skipping the warm up and doing the cool down at the end for a total of 32 minutes.
