Editorial Reviews

High Step Circuit: Beg/Int.... This 50 to 60 minute fitness conditioning circuit will burn fat and shape and tone your body from head to toe. Upon completing the warm up, you will go into 6 fitness cycles. Each fitness cycle consists of the following: 1) A one fun and easy step aerobic combination (that repeats itself 4 times)totaling one minute. 2) A leg exercise on the high step. 3) A compound exercise that consists of legs and upper body using 3 pound handweights. 4) An upper body exercise using resistance tubing (working the same body part that was used with the weights just before it) 5) A core exercise a stretch completes this workout.

Also, I had no problems keeping the intensity up to my level.

The moves are actually fine, there are just too few reps and the speed is way too slow to get my heart rate into my target heart rate zone.

Great workout for beginners and intermediate incorporating aerobic and sculpting.

This workout is lead by Cathe Friedrich, an instructor known for her advanced workouts. Although I can exercise at an advanced level and have in fact done some of Cathe's other DVDs, they always leave me feeling completely worn out, and thus I tend to have a high "dread factor" for these workouts. Happily, High Step Circuit, which is labeled on the DVD case as "Beginner/Intermediate" (although only "Intermediate" on the DVD title credits) was a perfect fit for my preference to work out at a more immediate level.

As the title would suggest, this is a circuit workout broken down into six cycles (about 6-7 minutes apiece), each one consisting of a 1 minute cardio segment using the high step (the Firm's Fanny Lifter, which is what I used, also works well here) followed by a lower body toning exercise (also using the step, sometimes set at a lower level), a compound toning exercise using light (3 lb.) weights, an upper body toning exercise using tubing (which I don't have, so I just stuck with the dumbbells), and finally, core work. All of the moves are quite basic, and each cardio choreography sequence is repeated four times within the 1 minute interval.

I consider myself at an intermediate/advanced level of fitness.

This dvd is clearly listed as beginner/intermediate. That said, for that level, I think this workout is excellent.

I can usually up the intensity by adding weights or substituting higher intensity moves but that just did not do it. The moves are actually fine, there are just too few reps and the speed is way too slow to get my heart rate into my target heart rate zone.

This is touted as one of Cathe's "easier" workouts! I am an intermediate exercises, and this was doable, but still tough. :-) The workout has been broken down by an earlier reviewer, but I will add my general impressions. Each circuit begins with a short cardio routine (some more complicated than others), then moves to different exercises using both dumbbells and tension bands. Each ends with a short core segment and stretch. Great concept, and I really wanted to like it, but you have to continually adjust your high step to add or remove risers for the different exercises. The use of both bands and dumbbells adds some variety to the exercises, but I don't like using bands and so I stuck with dumbbels for all the exercises. Cathe's personality shines in this workout ("break time is over!") and she is motivating and encouraging. The music was good and the setting was bright and cheerful. This might be perfect for someone who enjoys short workouts (i.e., doing just one or two circuits at a time), but I felt it was just a little busy for a long workout (i.e., doing all the circuits together.)

I love Cathe and could watch her all day....however, this DVD is just not cutting it for me because I believe the cardio segments need to be longer. I am not a believer in interval training unless the interval keeps your heart rate up. I don't care what anyone says, I do not believe it's good for the heart to pump up, then dramatically decrease over and over during a routine. I just try to embellish the intervals with my own cardio additions but after awhile that gets old.
