5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Core Workout! October 12, 2008
Format:DVD
I found this to be easy to follow, it is dancing, they do show you the moves, and your core DOES get a fantastic workout! Even doing only the warm up, one dance section, and the additional dancers workout at the end got my heart pumping and I was sweating up a storm! I love the fact that you can customize your working out by choosing which segments you want to do and it will play them seamlessly without you having to stop and push buttons!

Now for those with no musicality or rhythm, it may be harder for you to pick up and follow. I suggest just focusing on one segment until you master it. Watch the segment through a couple of times first then follow along and anytime it gets too complicated or you haven't mastered that step yet, just return to the basic step and keep trying till you get it.

And...you can take the steps you learn in this video, get with a partner and actually do them out on a dance floor! So, if you bought this video thinking you'll be able to apply what you learn on the dance floor, you can, but if you aren't a strong dancer and don't pick up choreography quick, try taking lessons from an instructor and use this video for practice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite...liked the original better September 22, 2008
Format:DVD
I liked this DVD because it was customizable (you can choose 40 minutes of dancing and/or 15 minutes of toning with a 5 minute warm-up option) and I like a longer workout.
I did not like this DVD because:
1. There was a lot of standing and stepping with arms close. My heartrate monitor never made it to a full cardio workout.
2. I thought that the instruction was just okay. Not enough advanced warning as to what was coming up next. Now we'll do a cha-cha and "GO!"
3. I thought the instructors were not as "fun" as the first DWTS DVD. They were monotone and almost boring. Not quite, but close.
I really wanted to like this one because of the funtionality of it, but it didn't work for me....maybe for beginners?

4.0 out of 5 stars more instructional September 19, 2008
Format:DVD
This one is much easier than the other Dancing with the Stars Cardio Dance.You can follow their moves without getting as confused. I like it alot but it's not as much fun as the other one. But at least with this one, you can actually learn the steps.

By cltpir8
Format:DVD
I am writing this review fresh off the first workout. I am 29 years old and somewhat out of shape, but walk on a regular basis. About 5 years ago and again 3 years ago, I took ballroom dance classes (including latin dance).

Pros: good cardio (I broke a sweat in all segments except the warmup); fun moves (not your traditional aerobic exercise video); ability to customize workouts.

Cons: rapid progress from beginning moves to more advanced moves (as someone who has taken face-to-face lessons enough to dance in social situations, I felt off-rhythm often and knew that due to the speed, I wasn't performing the moves technically.)

Suggestions: moving forward, I will customize the workout to include the warm-up, 1 dance and the toning exercises. Once that dance is mastered, I will add in a second dance. Therefore, increasing my length of exercise, but also increasing my confidence in the routines. I've found that if I get discouraged during a routine, I'm unlikely to want to continue the exercise, which is the ultimate goal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Video! October 8, 2008
Format:DVD
I liked the workout and got a lot out of it. I was a little weary because of other reviews on the site, but it is fun and it definitely works your legs. It may not be as fun as the other video, but they help you really learn the right way to do the steps, rather than just doing them. If you dance everyday, then you probably won't get much out of it, but if you're just looking for a fun way to get some exercise, it's a good video. Plus, any excuse to look at Maksim is worth it! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleasantly surprised and pleased November 26, 2008
Format:DVD
As a long-time "Dancing with the Stars" fan, I was really surprised--just recently--to discover this 2008 Latin Cardio Dance workout. I had no clue such a product existed. I immediately ordered it, not having the faintest idea what the DVD would bring. Suffice it to say, I was "very pleasantly surprised and pleased."

The DVD is 60 minutes of a great cardio workout. Even though other reviewers, who are already in great shape, were not particularly pleased, I am. It's been awhile since I have done a strenuous workout. Well, folks, you will get one here!! I have gone through the entire 60 minute program twice and have yet to complete each dance segment. (I'm too out-of-breath.)

Here's what I found:

1. Cheryl led the five-minute warm-up. These exercises must be universal because I did most of them with Jane Fonda back in the day. (Note: It is really fun to see Maksim going through these simple, slow routines as opposed to his lightning quick moves on the floor. He looks just like a normal guy in an aerobics class. Funny. Cheryl looks good.)

2. Chery led the first workout, "Merengue." Her teaching style is simple and direct, yet encouraging. When she shows the next step, she has the class continue to do the preceding movement, then adds the new. Because this is a cardio workout, there is no stopping to show in detail what she is doing. That is the purpose of the rewind button. Better yet, do these routines in front of a mirror or sideways to your television screen so that you can better process what is next. I found facing the screen made me do double processing: seeing, translating to the other side of my body, then doing. Standing sideways eliminates the translating step.

3. Cha-Cha is a 10-minute dance workout with Maksim. Surprise of surprises!
