  • Its just a demo to try. They really want u to buy the DVD. If u do want to purchase the DVD check Amazon first. They sell gently used ones that are cheaper. - 9/21/2014 8:39:42 AM
  • I liked this quick work out. It gets your heart rate up but keeps it low impact. - 9/18/2014 5:03:02 PM
  • I love this workout, but I do tjink it is important that it is a proper end to the workout. I did not like the fact that it stops in the middel of a workout. - 9/15/2014 5:56:14 AM
  • Love this work out and the instructor is awesome! This is such an easy way to get my cardio daily, no more excuses that I do not have the time! Thank you for this! By the way, if it's too tough at first, just keep trying, slow your pace if you need to. On the 3rd one I found it much easier because I was familiar with the moves. What a great way to start the day. - 9/12/2014 5:50:37 AM
  • It makes me sad to see people talking about the instructor's weight. I'm going to take a guess and say none of you would want someone telling you that you're too fat or skinny to do something. On top of that, we have no idea what the instructor's background is. Maybe 5 years ago she was 300 pounds with limited mobility and is now trying to help people in that same situation. As overweight people I would hope that we would be most sensitive to this kind of hate talk but apparently that's not the case. - 9/9/2014 7:57:05 PM
  • My feet got a little tangled up when trying to learn the moves, but toward the end when I had a better understanding of what to do I was really moving along, It's low impact and worth checking into a longer dvd workout. - 9/4/2014 12:51:23 PM
  • I like the video. The moves is very much like I a workout I did when I was in a Silver Sneakers glass in Bullhead City, Az - 8/29/2014 10:46:28 AM
  • This workout was frustrating because the moves were so quick and changed every 5 seconds, not long enough to catch on enough to have an effective workout. I ended up running around the house to get my workout in. - 8/28/2014 10:36:31 PM

  • Good workout that allows you to do high impact or low impact, depending on your level. Yes, it is similar to some Zumba moves. This is only an EXCERPT of the videos so if you want more or a cool down, get the videos. Otherwise, improvise! - 8/27/2014 1:07:09 AM
  • I love it! Kind of like Zumba! I was able to keep up and follow the steps easily - 8/26/2014 8:23:49 PM

  • If I were in my 30's this video would be great! See what everyone is saying about the end of video. Wish this video was for a senior just starting out. I did not see her sweat. - 8/26/2014 12:01:35 PM
  • I LOVE IT! DO YOUR OWN COOL DOWN! PERFECT FOR ME! - 8/26/2014 9:57:36 AM
