5.0 out of 5 stars Great Preview - CHERYL BURKE ROCKS! January 2, 2010
Format:DVD
I found this on Comcast's On Demand line up. It was a 30 minute sample.
I LOVED IT! I LOVE CHERYL BURKE! :)

This workout really reminded my of aerobics classes from the late 70's. I found the moves easy to learn. I had to modify because I am so out of shape, but it was easy to do. Cheryl starts the moves as basic moves and then bumps them up a notch at a time. She leads you through a short routine move-by-move, and then at the end she puts all of the routines together.
Even though there were times I would miss a step here and there it kept me moving and did not slow the workout for me.
The dancers behind her had fun with the dancing and made it even more enjoyable.Cheryl Burke Presents Disco Abs (3 DVD)

5.0 out of 5 stars Dancing Away the Pregnancy Weight! March 13, 2010
Format:DVD
I've been struggling with losing my maternity weight for months, and have tried several DVDs (postnatal workouts, yoga, cardio, kickboxing, pilates, circuit training). Hands down, Cheryl's 3 disc workout is the BEST! I used to be an avid dancer, and I'm usually bored out of my mind with slow warm-ups, workouts taking forever to make me break a sweat, or with the dances being comprised of simplistic, un-challenging steps. This workout is fun (no exaggeration), has the original music (not those weird Muzak versions of the songs), and actually made me feel my abs working hard enough to start getting tight again. I've only been using the workouts for two weeks, and my body is starting to firm up more, my posture is getting better, and my stomach is finally getting smaller. Hallelujah!

I always enjoyed Cheryl on DWTS, as the healthiest-looking professional dancer there (lean and toned, but still curvy). She is refreshingly direct with the workout guidance, and doesn't make any cheesy jokes or unnecessary chatter. She's adorable and inspiring. I would totally recommend these DVDs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great workout and FUN!!! July 3, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a Zumba Instructor and Personal Trainer and I LOVE this workout. I'm 48, so the music is from my era and I loved disco dancing back in the day. I believe that this is a good workout, but not extremely difficult. I've read the negative reviews and here's my take on them. This "ab" workout is a "standing" ab workout. Ladies, please do not think that you must be lying on the floor to get an ab workout. You'll never have great abs anyway unless you are eating a clean diet. Doing long ab workouts on the floor are no more beneficial and you cannot spot reduce either and most people end up hurting their necks and backs with floor ab work. I always incorporate standing ab work in my classes. As far as her cueing, it could be better. I believe every workout DVD should have a "technique" section to show people proper form on squats and lunges. If you don't know proper form, please research it. There are many good videos on the internet with certified trainers showing you the correct form. Most of the steps are not difficult, example: 4 steps forward, tap, 4 steps back, tap, repeat to the side, etc. I think what most people find challenging is adding the hand movements. If the hands throw you off, do the footwork first, then add the hands later. Most of my clientele is around my age+ and I have done many of these moves with them and they did great and were able to follow along. It's not high impact, but it's challenging and it's not hard on the knees. As far as the songs, there are original songs, but on some of the workouts there are also instrumental disco tunes in between the original songs. What people have to understand is the producers of the DVD must pay dearly for the rights to use these songs. If they use too many, they have to raise the price of the DVD. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars HAVE FUN SWEATING January 6, 2011
By Maurine
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am not one of those people who love to exercise, but I want to lose weight so it's a necessary evil. This DVD set is fantastic. I actually enjoyed doing the routines and I sweated a lot so I knew I was working my body (besides being out of breath at times). The music is fun and upbeat and encourages you to move.

The first DVD has a 30 minute cardio routine and a 5 minute ab routine. DVD number 2 has a 30 minute cardio routine and a 12 minute ab routine. DVD 3 has a 20 minute buns and thighs routine.

For me, DVD 3 was the hardest. My legs really burned. Maybe it was because I did it after the 12 minute ab routine. I don't know. Next time I'll do that routine first.

I've only done each routine once, but I plan to do them again. My body ached the next day because I had used muscles other exercise routines didn't.

Cheryl does a good job with the cuing and explaining. I think I did okay with the steps. I have room to improve and that will come with doing the routines again.

Cheryl has four people behind her also doing the routines. The guy and gal directly behind her are annoying and I raised my eyebrows at some of their joint interaction and wanted to say, "Get a room!" I wonder what Cheryl thought when she saw the playback. I also wonder why they didn't reshoot it and tell those two to cool it. It would be better without them, but that's minor.

I totally recommend this set and I look forward to getting Disco Abs!
