As my title says, this DVD is great for beginners because the choreography is not difficult, and, as always, Petra Kolber is an inspiration.

The DVD has 4 cardio segments:
1. 10 minute sport routine
2. 10 minute cardio dance routine
3. 20 minute sport routine
4. 20 minute cardio dance routine
5. 5 minute stretching segment.

The sport routines consists of hamstring curls, step touches, and other easy moves. The dance routines have more fun choreography. The different length segments are great if you're short on time or you are a beginning excerciser and don't have the stamina for longer workout routines.

Miscellaneous information about the DVD:
1. The music is catchy and up beat.
2. The set is not the best...but who works out for the set?
3. One annoying thing is that there is no option to play all of the segments. If you want to play all 5 segments, you have to go to the menu and click on every segment.

About the instructor:
Petra Kolber is full of energy and is encouraging without being annoying. I'm an intermediate to advanced excerciser and I bought this DVD strictly because I'm a huge fan of Petra Kolber. If you're an intermediate to advanced excercisor, I would recommend Petra's 3-2-1 Dance, as you might get a tad bored with the Cardio for Beginners DVD.

This dvd, cardio for beginners is wonderful. I have no idea of how to do cardio. For one, I have no rythem what so ever but Petra makes is so easy, the only drawback I have is she doesn't show the steps first before doing them. You can pick it up really easy though. I love this dvd, have been doing it every day since I purchesed it three weeks ago. I recommend it to the extreme beginner.

I'm the lasiest person ever, who hates--did I say HATE?!--to exercise, yet, I loved this DVD. And believe me, I'm not the most coordinated person and it worked for me. OK, you have to pay more attention, but it is not as difficult as some reviewers want you to believe. It's short and sweet and Mrs/Miss Kolber has a nice personality, that makes you enjoy working out--even I who HATE to exercise!

A quick background so anyone out there in a similar situation can relate... I just quit a sit-in-a-chair-all-day job and I am absolutely out of shape. I used to enjoy dancing so I bought a couple of dance exercise videos, feeling really motivated and excited. Unfortunately, I am so very out of shape that I can't do the videos. I can't keep up with them and my body can't accomplish the moves... disheartening.

After some research, I found clips of Petra's videos for beginners and thought, hey, they're for beginners, right? I ordered them from Amazon and while waiting for them to arrive, I watched the full versions in my online video library (from my couch, mind you). I was again disheartened when I saw how fast she was going and how agile the moves looked. I thought oh no, I won't be able to do this one either! I got them in the mail and reluctantly put the Cardio for Beginners on, ready to fail once again.... but I didn't fail!! My first workout was the 10 minute athletic cardio and while it was a challenge to keep up, it wasn't impossible. The whole 10 minutes was a build up to a routine and by the end of it, I surprised myself by actually doing it right! Even more surprising, I was just getting into it and then suddenly it was done.... and I was ready to keep on going. That's great news because now I know I can reach 20 minutes, 30 minutes, and eventually an hour.

I like Petra as an instructor. She's energetic but not over the top, and not in an annoying way. She seems to truly enjoy exercise and is in touch with her body. I read about her online and found out that she is a cancer survivor and a motivational speaker. She's also pretty well educated in fitness and exercise.

I thought that this dvd was AWESOME. I had so much fun and for the first time doing it, I did all four. If you are at all familiar with aerobic steps, you will totally do fine. The dance combos build on one another, so by the end of the 20 minute ones you are doing a routine that is about two minutes. I really enjoyed it and also appreciated the first ten minute segments. They give you an idea of what to expect in the 20 minute routines. It is easy enough but I did build up a great stinky sweat (ha ha). Also, please note that this is coming from a woman who honestly needs to lose about 75 pounds. I do walk about a mile and a half a day but knew I needed to get my butt in gear. I was sick of cardio machines and thought I LOVE TO DANCE, LET"S DO IT PETRA!!!!

I recently got this video and really like it! I'm really not a beginner, but thought this video would be a good one for my library and give me something different to do...as we get tired of doing the same routines over and over again. The steps are easy and varies from my other DVD's...and I love the energy...gets me going too!

I really love petra's down to earth attitude and i love her energy. BUT...if you're a beginner and have no aerobics experience you have to pay close attention to keep up with memorizing choreography. Don't worry its not too complicated. I consider myself a beginner. I don't usually work out. But the workouts weren't so hard to do. I found myself struggling near the end to not give up. But that's because i don't usually work out.
The plus side, is that Petra does a great job at explaining things and not making you feel stupid. I totally recommend this video if you don't normally exercise but want to start somewhere. This is a great addition to a beginners collection.
