Kathy Smith has created a really good workout that isn't super complicated like many other aerobic workouts. The steps are easy to get, but not boring. It's a lot of fun, not too ''aerobic-y'' or too dancy. There are two 20 minute workout segments. There really isn't a warm up and cool down phase, so it's 20 minutes of actual cardio activity, unlike some short workouts where you end up doing 9 minutes of cardio. I feel like the movements start out slow enough to warm me up, but some might need to move around a little bit while Kathy is talking before the work out begins. There is a really good stretch 7 minute at the end. If I do one of the segments, I feel like I've gotten a good workout. If I do both, I'm sweating my butt off. The workout is solely cardio work and stretching at the end, no strength training or abs. As for the format, I imagine some people won't like it. There are many people working out, along with Kathy front and center. She does move around quite a bit and has some of her friends, as she calls them, come up to do certain routines with her. I'm not distracted by that, but if you prefer a video where the instructor stays in one place and has one person to each side, this probably is not the workout for you. There are a few minor queing mess ups, including one of her friends who says the wrong move that's coming up. There are these goofy slow motion looking clips put into it. There a little distracting at first, but I've gotten used to them and they don't throw me off. Those are the two reasons I gave it a 4 instead of a 5. The best thing about the DVD is that Kathy shows each movement individually before putting them together into a routine. She doesn't demonstrate them so slowly that you're standing around waiting for her to finish once you've learned them. I feel like this is a good workout for beginners. People just starting out should be able to get the movements in a few sessions.

Kathy Smith does an excellent job with this video. It is so fun, it is almost addictive. It is very challenging but not ridiculously difficult. Kathy does a great job explaining the moves and lets you know in advance when it is time to go to the next move. This is not a video you will do a couple of times, know by heart, and be bored with. It is fun, challenging, and best of all, it works!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
