Customer Reviews

The workouts are fun, feeling more like dance than an exercise class.
Amazon Customer
During this time you are actually doing hula moves and getting a very good workout (esp for the legs).
Lincoln
Forget other dance workout DVDs--Tahitian Cardio really -is- a fun DVD that gives you a nice workout.

I did Tahitian dance years ago and always thought it was a wonderfully sensual dance form. Now years later I wanted to try to get back into shape so like many people I wanted new fitness DVD's for the holidays. Island Girl Dance Fitness Workout for Beginners is a *best buy* because it lives up to its name in every way. It is an exciting dance fitness workout not too challenging for beginners, nor is it slow for those familiar with different forms of dance. Kili is beautiful, spiritual and fit and her assistants are inspirational. Tahitian style is appropriate for a wide age range--no jumping, kneeling work or sudden shocks for tender joints. All and all the DVD brings the warmth of the islands and sunshine to the homes of those of us living far from the sea in cold climates. Well done! I'd buy another of her DVD's in a heart beat and highly recommend this DVD.

I loved her since her first DVDs "Hula Workout" though those used cutsy 60s music & added 60s american dance moves but still have a lot of authetic hula dancing.

These "Island Girl" hula workouts are more authentic. Just like her other ones, you get a great workout, your abs burn, your hips, legs get a nice workout. It's all authentic dance moves with some added quick squats, etc. added in so you barely notice it for adding toning. The authentic drum Hawaiian music is beautiful & does keep you stimulted too keep going just like a dance/rock beat would.

I had no trouble following & learning the steps, there are plenty of dance DVDs that I have had trouble with, but she breaks everything down well & shows it slowly several times before speeding it up. She even cues YOUR left & right, not hers.

There's a trailer for her "Hula Workout" DVDs & another authentic Hula workout like this called "Island Girl: Hula Abs & Buns" at collagevideo com

This is the kind of thing I was looking for. I sweat, and I don't spend the whole time looking at the clock, waiting for it to be over. The moves are fun and sexy, and not too hard to follow. I didn't get all of them the first time around, but a few more tries and I'll have it all down. Just staying in motion and doing my best gave me a nice workout.

The island beat of the music is very pleasant and fun. The scenery is lovely. The sound isn't perfect--wind noise is sometimes heard, but it doesn't detract at all from the quality.

I like this workout a little better than the cardio hula one. The cardio hula seems a lighter workout, while this one makes you work a little harder.

Forget other dance workout DVDs--Tahitian Cardio really -is- a fun DVD that gives you a nice workout.

UPDATE: I am still using and just loving this video. I originally bought it to get back into shape after having a baby. I recently bought The Firm's Transfirmer system for a tougher workout. I was surprised to find that (in spite of several people telling me how hard the workout is) The Firm workout wasn't that hard after all of my Island Girl workouts. I guess Island Girl is deceptively strengthening!

This workout definitely isn't for any major fitness buffs looking to get even more buff, but for the regular gals, it's very fun, motivating, and relaxing, even though you're sweating at the end! After just one week, I'm already seeing my hips and waist start to slim down. I've been working out nearly every day for the past 2 months and had hit a plateau. Then I tried this and in one week, it kick started me back into losing weight - I lost 2.5 lbs just this week and my only exercise was doing this video!

Unless you're familiar with hula dancing, it will take 2-3 watchings to get the routine down. The first 2 times, I was constantly rewinding to try to be able to learn what they were doing. But just go for it and you'll pick it up quick. Just remember to keep your knees bent and it will be that much easier, as well as more effective. After a week, there are still a few places where I have trouble (I'm not the most coordinated when it comes to moving my hips and arms and feet all at the same time) I've found that the better I get at the video, the more of a workout I'm getting. I'm usually dripping with sweat at the end, but didn't feel like I'd worked that hard, until the next day :)

What I really like about the video is that it's broken down into 3 parts - the workout, where Kili shows you the dance, then breaks it down over the course of about 27 minutes; then there's the dance itself, where the routine is repeated 3 times for a total dance time of 3 minutes; and finally the cooldown, which brings the total video time to about 36 minutes. I find that I have so much fun doing the workout, that I will keep rewinding to do the dance 3-4 more times before moving on to the cooldown.

Kili is an excellent hula instructor, and her two assistants are beautiful.

Hula dance choreographer Kili and her 2 assistants are delightful and professional. The dance workout is well structured and paced. You learn a complete hula dance, which is broken down into sections so you can practise it and get a good workout at the same time! You'll feel it in your hips/thighs and abs (in fact, your whole body!) as you sway, bump and step your way through. The inspiring music and beat of the drums motivates your hips to keep moving! Towards the end you get to put it all together in a graceful, flowing, complete hula dance - fantastic. I love this DVD! Meitaki ma'ata (thanks!) Kili.
