Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Paula Abdul's fans will really have fun with this 45-minute, high-energy dance workout. Even the warm-up is energetic and jazzy. Abdul teaches two dance routines. She introduces a 16-count pattern slowed down, then speeds it up until you're up to tempo, adding on until you've got a routine. Don't expect teaching expertise from Abdul--she cues the moves, but never explains how to do what she's demonstrating. Just watch and follow. You may need to pause this video a lot at first to learn the moves--she doesn't repeat the slowed-down moves enough to catch them--but after you get them, it becomes pure fun. She is assisted by two of her tour dancers and a crowded class of what she calls "ordinary people," though they're mostly young, good-looking, and very fit. The production is colorful and flashy. The constantly changing camera angles are distracting and sometimes annoying, because they hinder you from watching the feet to learn the moves. You'll enjoy the playful cool-down to Village People's "YMCA," led by the males in the class. An abdominal segment and stretches finish the workout. Coordination and rhythm required. --Joan Price

4.0 out of 5 stars This is hip-hop September 8, 2004
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I just want people to know that this is a hip-hop workout and difficult for some of us due to all the jumps, twists, and general joint-popping. I would have liked to have known that before I ordered it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This one awakened the dormant dancer in me. . . April 12, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Paula Abdul--choreographer to the stars--and two of her colleagues lead a workout which will challenge your feet and leave you sweating. As far as I know, she's not a certified aerobics instructor, but she had Karen Voight serve as Fitness Consultant for this video, and that was good enough for me. She's taught dance routines for years. Much of what she did for George Michael, Janet Jackson, and the guys from ZZTop probably involved getting them to relax and not worry over how goofy they felt when they couldn't get the steps the first time around. She does spend some time talking about that before you begin this routine. In the words of the customer service experts, she practiced good expectations management there. So I wasn't surprised or disappointed that I couldn't get it all the first time, either. Heck, I like a challenge!
You can't do this if you're sleepy. I've never tried it at 5:00am. To me, it's more of a "let's dance and have a party" routine, and one I want to be fully awake for. And there are no modifications given for those who want or need a gentler routine. But this is an intermediate program, after all. I've found that if I didin't snap my neck all the way around, bend my knees too deeply, or jump--just raise my arms toward the ceiling and go up on my toes--then I was all right. I'd also encourage folks who want to keep their heart rate up to use a full range of motion dring the "teaching" segments of the routine and really lift their knees up during the "march-it-outs." I found that even the "YMCA cooldown" (which is really goofy but fun, anyway!) can be aerobic if I made my moves bigger.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paula Abdul's Get Up and Dance April 16, 2000
By Debbie
Format:VHS Tape
I think this video can be really awesome, alot of fun and a fantastic workout. I agree with a few other people's reviews. I went through the tape once and could not follow it. Its a workout that you definitely need to learn in steps. That's what I am doing now. Even though I could not follow Paula's steps when I tried it the first time, it still gave me a workout with sweating. I wanted to continue and learn the steps all at once but I knew I wouldn't be able to get up tomorrow morning. So I will gradually learn it and I am sure in time I will be able to follow her all the way. I really love dancing so I know I will love it when I can do all of it. In my opinion if you don't like dancing, this isn't the tape for you. Its fun and very challenging. I do believe though the people in the video are either professional dancers or they spents hours learning the steps in this video. You cannot learn it in a one shot deal. But I would say if you love to dance, love aerobics then this is definitely the workout for you. Thank you for letting me express my feelings about this video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Fun . Just DO IT! December 15, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Forget the words: "workout" & "exercise".

Instead - think of: a little challenge, dance steps, and fun.

You can do this.

Don't rush. Take a little at a time.

Anyone can learn moves - all it takes is repetition - just doing it over and over (that and not giving up).

And to get or stay fit you need repetition.

Thus this video encourages the viewer to repeatedly play it;

repeatedly exercising and before you know it - surprise - you're getting more fit, staying fit, and not "working" at it! (along with getting more agile, more balance, more finesse, more confidence, more grace (i.e., your manner of moving is smoother)).

Think of it as your dance class you have x times a week - but it's even better because you can do it in private.

I found myself at different times during the day (when stressed, nervous, bored, waiting, needing to relax - all different times), I found myself practicing some of the steps....i.e., the perfect remedy for any of those situations and so good for ya!!

just fun.

just do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some good moves..some of them quite challenging August 15, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I'm not going to comment on the video's value as an aerobic workout because I think you can make pretty much any exercise aerobic by maintaining continuity.
As far as a dance video goes, I think it's pretty good. I'm not buying her comments about the "ordinary" people she put together for the video..this isn't a routine for clumsy people and/or significantly overweight folks, especially the later sections. But anybody can pick up at least some useable moves from it. In my opinion, if you can get through the whole thing without stopping, at the pace it's shown, you're already quite fit and coordinated. I agree with what has been said about camera angles and such, but I was able to see what was being shown, even if I couldn't do all of it. Of the half dozen freestyle dance videos I've bought, I'd rate this the most advanced overall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Takes endurance April 2, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I have had dance training, but after two babies, I am not in shape. This tape requires practice and ptience. The warm up section is easy enough, but the dance part can be too quick for the amateur. The first few run throughs you spend getting lost. I have done this tape now for six straight days and have now learned the dances, but that is where the endurance comes in. Once you can do the dance, you get no rest stop and the tape is almost an hour. So if you like Paula and like to dance, try it. It is fun and something you can take with you to a dance floor once you have some technique. If you can't dance well, and are not in shape, pass this up. You will just be dissatisfied. The up side is that I am sure that you will get results from this workout once you can keep up!

You have to pick up steps really fast. The average beginner shouldn't purchase this. You will be frustrated like me and now it sits in my draw.
