  • great little work out - couldn't do most of it but tried the easiest options anyway. - 3/12/2015 9:11:32 AM
  • I can't find where to add this to my favorites. - 2/26/2015 8:11:59 PM
  • I thought I was starting to get in shape until I tried this video. It was very hard for me. I couldn't do any of the jumping front/back or sided/side. Every time I tried, I felt like my ankles were going to roll and break. I did modifications on almost all of it, and it still had me out of breath to the point where I thought I might pass out. I think I need to stick with some simpler videos first until I'm strong enough for this one. Kudos to those that can do this, especially without any modifications! - 2/24/2015 8:30:07 PM
  • This was a great start for me to get back into cardio. I hope to do this everyday and build by adding something new to it each week. - 2/23/2015 12:45:32 PM
  • It a good ten minute work out - 2/19/2015 2:34:52 AM
  • i modify this to avoid the jumping. It seems to work, I just move faster and try to keep my arms moving. I now just use the video to know when to change my intervals. It is a great guide and once I figured out what intensity I needed I just kind of do my own thing until the stretches. It is working for me. - 2/9/2015 1:19:07 PM

  • Nice quick little workout. Had a hard time with the single leg jumps but got through the whole workout. - 2/2/2015 2:15:59 AM
  • This was difficult but I made it through and plan to do it again today. Will be saving this to my favorites. - 1/17/2015 11:40:07 AM
  • As an upstairs apartment dweller, I need something that is not going to thump and thud on my downstairs neighbors apartment. I would love to find a short cardio that I can do upstairs without disturbing my neighbors, for those days when the weather is not cooperating. - 12/23/2014 8:23:16 PM
  • This looks like a great workout but unfortunately, it is too high impact for me... :/ - 10/24/2014 11:07:53 AM
  • Loved the video...easy to do ...and most effective !! Good for beginers like me. - 10/20/2014 12:09:04 AM
  • This is a high impact work out loved it . However i couldnt do the one leg hop for long , couldn't hold more than 5 second. Iam going to challenge myself to do this 10 minute work out non-stop without breaks - 9/10/2014 7:07:17 PM
  • Ignore the comment about being able to add it to tracker. I must have been on a different page because it is there now. - 8/25/2014 10:55:21 PM
