  • Nice quick workout when you're crunched for time! - 4/24/2015 1:28:41 PM
  • Just right for the beginner in this type of workout Thanks ! - 4/23/2015 6:38:57 AM
  • People who are working intermediate and advanced already know how to increase the intensity. Beginners don't always know how to modify a high impact move to a low impact. It would be much more helpful to very briefly demonstrate the high impact, but then return to the low impact modifications. Perhaps you might consider a split screen. Other people have done this and it does help. I never do high impact and I had trouble just watching the video wondering how I was going to convert your high impact moves to low impact since you didn't show enough of the modifications to help. The lateral shuffle is a good example. How do you convert that to low impact? - 4/16/2015 10:40:02 AM

  • Reality Check!! I knew I was out of shape, but didn't know how much. Will do this again tomorrow. - 3/5/2015 12:42:41 AM
  • Wow. I know I'm technically a beginner, but this very short video kicked my rump! More out of breath and sweaty than with the 10 minute kick-boxing video! - 2/22/2015 5:38:47 PM
  • So frustrating this is the only video that digitizes and then I cannot see a picture. Sometimes I start and have to reload the video a couple of times, so technically my workout is a bit longer but it is frustrating. I have no idea but this video is the only one that does it, and it does it every time. - 2/2/2015 6:40:55 PM
  • FaB video workout! - I love IT & 170 Calories burnt off in a short amount of time!

    It would be FAB if all the videos listed the calories burnt in the info box, so I could choose the high calorie burners in advance. - 1/22/2015 6:01:44 AM
  • wow... very hard for me...looking forward to the benefits. IT'S TIME!!! - 1/21/2015 7:44:37 PM
  • I was out of breath, However, my heart was racing and I felt like i had a workout. I am still am sweating 15 minutes later. I am excited on trying some other videos. Day one Yes... Excited. - 1/17/2015 11:05:21 AM
  • Ahhh, I'm so out of shape! But this was just short enough that I didn't give up on Day 1. Hopefully in four weeks I'll be able to do this without dying. - 1/11/2015 8:50:49 PM
  • I did this workout but left out the jumping. My knees hurt and cant do jumping but other than that, it was a good workout. - 1/10/2015 10:48:15 PM
  • Good video, but I modify, leaving out the jumping. Took me a year to get over plantar fasciitis, so I'm not going to invite it back. - 1/9/2015 5:41:02 PM
