  • Love this workout! And even though it stops mid workout, you can finish the part you are doing on you own, fairly easily, and even run through the moves a few more times and then go back to a march in place, slowing down until you have cooled down enough to stop. This is definitely one of my go to workouts! - 12/7/2014 2:24:05 PM
  • FYI: I think this is from "Keeping Fit Cardio" with Andrea Metcalf. After doing my own research it looks like it's on that video, and Quick Fit which is a combo of Keeping Fit videos. - 12/4/2014 10:18:14 PM
  • Where do we buy THIS video? The link takes us to a page that says "Product Image Not Available" and there's nothing there but links to other videos. - 12/4/2014 9:59:08 PM

  • I really love this workout,I could do it everyday, - 10/21/2014 3:40:12 PM
  • iit is a good start -up cardio workout. Good to get you warmed for more intense cardio sessions. I felt it was light and breezy compared to Coach nicole Jump- start rope cardio workout . It is however good for getting to your step goals if you need those last few hundred steps to go for the day - 10/19/2014 6:25:02 PM
  • yes, it leaves you high and dry: to cool down go back to gentle taps side to side, then marching etc, and use leg and arm stretches that Coach Nicole has drummed into us. - 10/11/2014 1:22:27 AM
  • 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
