Anyway. In my opinion, these are fun DVD's that get the job done. It really does remind me of the old school 80's workout videos, but this is distinctly modern and gives you a killer workout. It was a plus to me that Kim could look glamourous even as she's sweating and getting fit. It serves as inspiration lol.
Overall, I give this 5 stars because it was challenging, fun and inspirational, which is what we would all like.
I am NOT someone who's usually coordinated enough to do "routine/choreographed" type workouts. I was horrible at anything involving dance moves or cheerleading in high school. I figured this step routine looked like a lot of fun, but I figured I'd probably get totally lost. I am so happy to say that was not the case. Kim goes over each step in each combination enough times that it makes it easy to follow.
The music and setting is nice and not overbearing at all. The total workout is around 50 minutes long, and I was shocked when I realized I was doing the cool down and had done the whole thing. This workout is literally SO FUN that I didn't look at the clock once to think "Is this over yet?"
Best part is, while it is fun, I do feel like it's a fairly decent cardio workout. I know it got my blood pumping and my heart rate up. I worked up a really good sweat.
All you need is a step and a little bit of space in your home (not a whole lot of space is even needed.) This DVD is a really fun way to get some cardio exercise into your day.
Although Kim does lead this workout, it was choreographed by veteran fitness instructor Patrick Goudeau. However, Patrick never actually appears; instead, Kim is featured with two background exercisers in an apartment-like studio setting. Most of Kim's cuing is performed via voiceover, but she breaks in with live instruction as well. She does not cue right or left, instead expecting the viewer to keep track of which side is up next at any given time.
The Main Menu offers the following options (approximate times added by me):
*Warm-Up (7 minutes)
*Combination 1 (7.5 minutes)
*Combination 2 (9 minutes)
*Combination 3 (10 minutes)
*BONUS Combination (5 minutes)
*Cool-Down (3 minutes)
*Bonus Features (Series Introduction--Interview with Kim--Behind the Scenes--Meet the Trainer)
Here are my brief breakdowns of the segments:
WARM-UP--Kim gets the heart pumping right away with many classic step moves, including basic step, knee ups, and corner steps.
COMBO 1--This combo includes a rock step to each side, a mambo over the top of the step, a cha-cha-cha/straddle step, and a three-knee repeater adding a fun little "woo" turn away from the step.
COMBO 2--I found this combo to have the easiest choreography. It starts with a fun L-step/punch off the side of the step, the goes to a "walk the plank" on the step and lunges off the step, ending with a double knee.Read more ›

Arrived quickly. This video is all over the place, fairly easy to follow, however, it is more about the outfit than the workout. Nice video for beginners.Published 6 months ago by Ajax3
What someone would expect from watching Kim - I smiled through the workout and felt the effect of the workout.Published 13 months ago by Sunshine
I love step aerobics and was looking for a new routine. This is only okay. They don't explain the steps very well and the queues are all voiced over, so the timing is off.Published 17 months ago by Kaci
This is the first DVD I've done in Kim's 'Fit In Your Jeans by Friday' series. It's highly stylised and aesthetically gorgeous, but the workout itself was extremely disappointing. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Nadia555

To be honest I am not really a fan of hers, but the workout wasn't bad. The cueing wasn't great but you could definitely see the Patrick Goudeau influence and music. Read morePublished on September 19, 2013 by Maureen Ikwueme
