  • 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
  • worth saving if i knowed how

  • 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
  • I think it is a great professionnaly made video! It's a demo or a 12 min cut from a workout video. I read comments about missing this and that. You guys can just add a cool down period on your own. But please, keep in mind we all have this for free and we ought to be grateful! - 8/26/2014 8:20:55 AM
  • very square..those moves are from the 70's . - 8/26/2014 5:06:30 AM
  • They cannot put the calories burned by this workout because it depends on the individual. That skinny woman is burning 3 calories, but if I did the same workout, being nearly 25 stone, I would burn about 500! - 8/26/2014 4:41:43 AM
  • Video ended rather abruptly - 8/26/2014 4:28:56 AM
  • This leader is too skinny for me to take seriously. She looks as though she may have an eating disorder. We're on this site to lose weight; how about some realistically-siz
    ed, healthy-looking instructors? - 8/25/2014 7:49:36 PM
  • This video was fun and reminded me how uncoordinated I am. However, this video is irresponsibly edited as there is no cool down. SparkPeople emphasizes the cool down on their own videos so why not this one. Not cooling down and lead to fainting and an irregular heartbeat, among other things. Please reedit to include the cool down. - 8/13/2014 1:18:00 PM
