Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

You've got to hand it to Kathy Smith--the indefatigable diva of fitness has a knack for staying on top of the cultural curve. Her peppy Kickboxing Workout came out right on the kicking heels of The Tae-Bo Workout and added much-needed polish to that popular workout's moves. Smith's Latin Rhythm Workout, released in the fall of 1999, capitalizes on America's love affair with Ricky Martin and Latin music in general. The workout has great music (unlike a few of Smith's previous videos), provided by a live band at the Conga Room in Los Angeles, and a lot of infectious energy from Smith and her core group of fellow dancers. Whether this works as a workout for you, though, will depend on how quickly you can absorb dance steps. In fact, it's unlikely to get your heart rate up to decent workout levels, unless you're a fairly accomplished dancer used to throwing yourself into the steps. The tape includes a very brief warm-up, and then segments that essentially teach steps like the cha-cha, the samba, and the merengue, followed by a few minutes of cool-down. Because the steps aren't strenuous per se, there aren't two workout levels provided, as in most of Smith's tapes. Included is a bonus segment for you and a partner, to teach you how to take the steps onto the dance floor of your favorite salsa club. --Anne Hurley

Product Description

The lively rhythms of latin dance combine great calorie burning & toning benefits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for all fitness levels! July 2, 2002
By JANMC
Format:VHS Tape
To begin with, in order to be happy with your workout video purchase it is good to know what it is and what it is not. This is a 40 minute LOW IMPACT work-out that is broken into two 20 minute segments to be done together or on their own. What you will be doing is essentially dancing to infectious latin music and having 40 minutes of fun. If you are like me, good music makes working out easy. Have you ever run on the treadmill listening to the radio and suddenly started working out faster and better when your favorite song came on? Well, this work out is a great choice if you love latin music and you love dancing.
I bought it in order to have a fun alternative cardio routine and I'm very happy with it. I cannot say this is the most intense cardio workout on the planet - but it does not have to be. Even for advanced exercisers, there are days when you just cant force yourself to perform to super-human limits and this is a great work-out for that day. For beginners, this is a FUN work-out and you will work up a pretty good sweat just following the moves. To get an idea of how intense the workout is, just imagine dancing non-stop in a club for 40 minutes.
The steps are easy to follow for beginners - although if you find it hard to follow dance moves or hate dancing all together please don't bother picking this video up and then critisizing it. Similarly, if you are an advanced salsa dancer and impress the crowds with your dance moves at clubs, this work-out will be boring for you - unless of course you do your own thing to the music.
This work-out is ideal for beginners who need something simple to get them started, for kids, for people of all fitness levels who just want to have fun dancing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun,fun,fun November 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The music in this video is infectious! Even if you aren't a dancing type of person (I'm not) you can't help but move along with it. The dance steps are easy to follow in the demo, but can get a bit fast in the actual workout. I'm surprised at the amazon.com review which says it's hard to get your heart rate up with this video. Oh really! If you're a monumentally fit person who works out for 3 hours everyday and has a resting heart rate of 25, maybe. The average person WILL get to target heart rate with this workout if they keep up with the dancers in the video. Great video and I just LOVE that music!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a "Light Day" Workout... June 9, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I am yet another Kathy Smith fan and I admit this is not one of her more rigorous videos. However, I am NOT a dancer and am not at all coordinated, but I like Kathy so I bought and tried this one -- and I really enjoyed it. I didn't feel clumsy like I usually do dancing {or attempting to!}. I think that, if you view this routine as a workout to do on an 'easy' workout day rather than a hardcore cardioblast, you'll really enjoy it. As the other reviewers have pointed out, the time DID fly! I personally do a lot of tough aerobic exercise videos plus strength training -- I push myself and my body a lot. I like to work out 4-7 days a week, doing both early morning and early evening routines in a single day, and I like to alternate difficult routines with lighter cardio that still works the heart and muscles but is a bit more relaxing. That is also the recommended way to work out - tough days/easier days. So for that kind of fitness mix, this video is a great addition -- fun, fun, fun! But if you only work out 3 days a week, perhaps you should stick with some tougher routines like Smith's Aerobox {great!}, her Kickboxing tape, her Peak Fat Burning video, Karen Voight's Energy Sprint, Tae Bo Advanced, Step Reebok Intense Moves, etc. So "chill" a bit, think of this as a Ricky Martin primer, and enjoy! :)

1.0 out of 5 stars What Happened Kathy? January 29, 2000
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I couldn't wait to get this video. I purchased it from Amazon.com. As soon as it arrived, I put it in. It was terrible. I have had some lessons in Merengue, Salsa and Latin Dancing (I am a Spanish Teacher) and thought this would be a great 'different' way to work out. I was wrong. Kathy was too dressed up and looked like she was going out, not working out. I didn't break a sweat, was bored and kept telling myself that it will get more challenging. Wrong again. I have only used it two times and I feel like I wasted my money. I love her other videos and feel like I have worked out when doing the others. Not with this one. I don't want to use this video as my workout video because I don't feel like I'll get a good enough workout from it. I hope Kathy comes out with a new, normal, video soon. Don't let us down again.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a Blast November 20, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I'm a low advanced exerciser and wanted to add some fun to my workouts instead of pushing myself to near exhaustion every day. I bought this video at Target for $9.95 (sorry, Amazon; you need to work on your prices sometimes) a week ago and have been dancing up a storm since then.
Although admittedly this is not a truly tough workout, you can increase the intensity substantially by increasing your range of motion and really putting your hips and arms into it. I wear a heart rate monitor when I work out and found that my heart rate when up from 60 - 65% of maximum doing the moves "normally" to 75% of maximum by putting some oomph into it.
I found Kathy's cueing to be very good. I do have one criticism: Kathy should have used a microphone instead of having to yell some of the cues (some cueing is done via voice-over and some "live"). At times her voice can be quite strident -- I daresay a bit screechy.
She and her background dancers seem to be having so much fun it's contagious. I like to use the video after another workout, just to add some more cardio and have some fun moving my body in ways I probably wouldn't ever move it in public.
