The video is easy to program. You can do all cardio, all sculpt, or choose any combinations of all six sections. You can also do the sections in any order. The sections are Cardio One, Cardio Two, Cardio Three, Cardio Sculpt One, Cardio Sculpt Two, and Bonus Abs. There is a warm up and cool down no matter how many sections you choose. I really like how easily the video is to program and there are no lengthy introductions between sections.
I have mixed feelings about the warm up. I enjoyed the stretches. So many DVDs skimp on the warm up and cool down sections, it was nice to work out to one at an appropriate level of difficulty.Read more ›
Cardio Combo 1, 2, 3,4--each 11 minutes except #4 which was 7 minutes.
Cardio Sculpt 1 and 2--10 and 11 minutes and
Cardio Core Challenge --10 minutes.
Not only that, according to the back I could Mix and Match to create my own custom workout!!
Sigh....I popped the DVD in, it started with a warm-up which was fine, but then when Cardio Combo 1 started, I saw this was just not going to work. It looked like the fitness expert was moving to the beat of a drummer in her own head! If you have any since of rhythm at all, you will be completely thrown for a loop with this one. The exercises and combos in and of themselves are decent (no fancy moves, just cardio raising movement), but trying to watch this woman move and listen to the the music and her instructions is like being Alice in Wonderland. Totally confusing.
I finally memorized her combos (thank goodness they were not difficult), turned my back to the TV, tried to ignore her voice and move to the rhythm of the music on my own. It worked as long as I could tune the instructor out!
Couldn't have been more dissapointed, but I gave it two stars because I will keep it now that I have learned the routine and do the exercises on my own...otherwise, this would have been a waste.
I like Reebook workouts, and I have bought all of them.
Being a mother of two little children, sometimes I have to take time where is none to do some exercise, this DVD makes that easier, I can mix and match the different workouts as I like, depending on my free time.
She does do a good job of making sensible transitions, adding on one piece at a time. Unfortunately, she doesn't prepare you for it. About a half beat before you have to change moves, she'll quickly say what's going to happen and there's no time to prepare or figure out what she's saying.
Like others mentioned, the number of repetitions is not equal for each side. We almost always learn the moves on the right side, so you have the learning phase and then the regular repetitions. She significantly shortens the learning phase on the left side (understandably), but she doesn't boost the number of repetitions to make up for the difference.
I definitely worked hard, but was so frustrated throughout that I don't really want to do it again.

Sara Haley moves very quickly, so I found it took longer to learn the work out than other work outs I have. But the cardio was worth it.Published on October 9, 2013 by Susanne
Great for a quick workout at home. The format allows you to choose only one combo if you are in a hurry or combine 2 or 3 for more excercise. Read morePublished on November 11, 2011 by tatoom
Great cardio workout. We liked the combination of cardio and strength. We were in good shape to begin with so we didn't mind the times when she kicked it up. Read morePublished on November 6, 2010 by Karmakafebargains
