Editorial Reviews

Who said exercise has to be like work? This is a workout for people who want to have fun! Paula Abdul brings you the best of her own unique style in this dance-packed cardio workout, followed by lower body toning and a dancer’s stretch. Count on it, you’ll break a sweat, AND, you’ll get in shape. The cardio segment is taught dance-class style, a segment at a time, then you’ll put it all together at the end. Paula teaches each routine slowly, then speeds it up to tempo. Paula’s style of dance – classy yet funky and "edgy" choreography – looks challenging, yet the basic steps are simple. She makes the transitions between steps so smooth, you’ll be into the next move without even knowing how you got there. Plus, if you’re a "footwatcher," you’ll have the advantage of watching the steps in reverse, with Paula facing the same direction as you learn. In the lower body toning segment, be ready for some classic dance-inspired exercises to tone and define your thighs, buttocks and calves. These exercises are moves that dancers use as part of their core training.

What a tape this is! WOW! Paula Abdul really gets your heartrate going, and she is great company to sweat with.At first the dance moves DO seem a bit complex but they are easily mastered and really work your body out. What I like the most is that the warm-up is quick and effective, then Ms. Paula takes you right into the dancing. And how-these are some real funky moves! She takes it slow(and uses an inset box which I find useless), and after a few times you'll get it. If anyone expect to pop in an excerise tape and have to routine after only 5 minutes-you have got another thing coming.After the dance routine, Paula does some real great toning and stretching. The workout really burns in you legs and thighs(hey-it's that "good" burn), and the stretching feels fantastic for you back and legs.If you consider yourself a beginner try Paula's first tape "Get Up And Dance". Otherwise pick you this tape(or DVD!) and get to it.

This is a instructional video for all who want to have a good workout and the added benefit is learning fun, trendy fast paced dance moves which is incorporated into all of the exercises. The workout is different in that respect than the standard exercise tapes- unlike anything else out there on the market. I'm 18, and I'm very glad I found this video as I would have never had an opportunity to learn those kinds of hip dance moves- I had no idea how fun they are to do and can imagine what I'll feel like once I master them. The moves remind me a little of the dances done in a Christina Aguilera video or that kind. The workout is very good- I was really sweating, yet at the same time it's manageable. As she does the workout in full screen, the footwork is demonstrated in a small square at the bottom of the screen with Paula facing the same direction as me.
On my first try, I couldn't follow much of it and I don't imagine there are many who would be able to without a few practices. Yet don't forget, even professional dance classes require that the dancers practice- if practice was not needed, I suppose no one would take them as there would be no need to. I didn't let what I could not do right away deter me and it shouldn't stop you either as again, almost everything takes effort and practice- even popular Tae-Bo (trust me) :-). When I couldn't follow the moves to this video, I tried my best moving my feet and keeping my heart rate going, not stopping. Yet I can see how it's very manageable where only a few plays of the tape and I'll get down the moves perfectly in step.
Paula Abdul is sweet, her personality is warm and sincere- not at all demanding, arrogant or into herself as you may find in some funk or 'cool' dance tapes.

I can understand why many of the previous reviewers thought this DVD was too technically difficult to follow. I mean, hey, she was a former Laker girl, for crying out loud. BUT, after only owning this DVD for two whole days, I've gotten the routine down....AND I like it!
Paula Abdul is ever-known for her funky dance style, and she really expresses it in this workout video. Granted, the steps are really hard to follow when you try it out for the first time (like I felt yesterday). However, by the second or third time through, YOU FINALLY GET IT. And you get a decent cardio work out while doing it.
More importantly, I think "Cardio Dance" emphasizes one component of fitness often overlooked by the fitness denizens of today: coordination! I notice when I take dance classes (including this DVD), I feel more nimble and able to tackle other workouts more effectively. Your stability and posture improve, not to mention your confidence.
You may not sweat buckets doing this DVD, but you will improve your foot coordination and HAVE FUN! Paula's enthusiasm is great, and her program is well-choreographed. The ballet-based toning exercises are good, focusing A LOT on "plies", lifts for your calves, and stretches to finish off.
Keep in mind, it's easier to do this DVD on a non-carpeted floor (although not impossible on a carpet as long as you pick your feet up), and you will need a fair amount of room in which to follow the routine.

The idea of exercising in front of my television set generally embarrasses me; perhaps I associate exercise videos with dancers in the background squealing "WOOOO!" every time they lift their legs. Paula Abdul's video is wonderfully understated, very challenging, and a true pleasure to dance to. That's the key, though--you're learning a dance and then doing it; you're not repeatedly doing the grapevine and the whatever else they call various aerobic steps. I have a dance background, and I found the routine challenging at first. I just played the DVD twice in a row until I could feel a bit less disoriented and clumsy (and I'm not a clumsy person). I was glad I stuck with it, however, because her moves are really fun and her music is not the least bit annoying.
I did not give the video five stars because, as another reviewer indicated, you need a very large space in order to do the routines adequately. Very few people I know have the kind of space in their living rooms they'd need to do this workout correctly. I just did things diagonally instead of right/left and front/back, but I would have rather not found myself crashing into my table here and my couch there.
One final note: another reviewer found her insert box useless, but I found it very helpful to watch the moves done from the direction I was facing.
