Low-Impact Cardio (30 min.): Mambo, power walk and lose inches fast with fun cardio moves that boost the metabolism in a total-body workout that’s easy on the joints.

[A mat is recommended.]

Amazon.com

Workout queen Denise Austin knows that a low-impact cardio routine can be just as effective as a high-impact one. If it's structured and paced like the workout on Denise Austin: Shape Up & Shed Pounds, the routine can get your heart rate up and really help you push your limits. While this disc is targeted at beginners or those who might be easing back into a workout regimen--and it is ideal for those exercisers--even those who are fit and work out regularly will feel results by doing Austin's routine. Austin has created a series of moves with little to no break in the 30 minutes, mixing fun Latin dance moves with power walking and her favorite squats and lunges. There's also a great 20-minute toning and stretching routine (a mat or thick towel will be useful for the floor exercises). The two routines can be combined for a thorough one-hour workout, head to toe, or done on alternate days for those who want to take it a little more slowly. As always, Austin focuses on proper posture and form, and her bubbly encouragement helps cheer on her students. Those wanting a new workout to add to an existing exercise regimen, or those wanting something doable now but also one that can become more challenging as their fitness level grows, will really see results doing Denise Austin: Shape Up & Shed Pounds. Next stop, a more fit, toned you! --A.T. Hurley

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD contains 2 workouts for beginners who have been exercising for a while or one may use them on a light exercise day which is what I did. In both workouts, Denise Austin works with 4 ladies. No equipment is needed, except maybe a mat for the second workout.

1. Low-Impact Cardio (31 minutes, 36 seconds)
In general, this is a light to moderate workout. Exercises are non-stop and Ms. Austin moves briskly through a variety of exercises. The workout includes traditional aerobics, small jumps, balance work, and a few easy Latin steps.

2. Stretch & Tone (20 minutes, 27 seconds)
This workout is divided into standing work and floor work. Standing work is comfortably paced with stretches and light standing moves. Then, Ms. Austin moves on to the floor and the exercises become a little bit more intense and faster.

Here are the floor exercises.
Modified push-ups
Mobility work
Low hover
Bridge
Hip swing
Pulses
Ab work
Crunch
Leg lift
Bicycle
Side plank and lift
Cobra
Superman
Reverse plank or bridge with triceps

This ends with a few stretches on the floor.

I am an intermediate level exerciser in my early 40s. I thought this might be too easy because it said "perfect for beginners". What a surprise! The cardio workout is low impact but it does get your heart rate up if you put in an honest effort. I even broke into a light sweat. There's walking and some fun dance moves that will take someone klutzy (like me!) a few times through to figure out. It has been a long time since Denise put out a 30 minute workout that is cardio only. I really enjoyed it! The tone section is a pleasant, easy workout for days that you are feeling tired or if you are sore; it is 20 minutes and tones the whole body!

These workouts are just what you need if you want to have results quickly. The first improvement for me was not visible but my flexibility and range of motion were improved. That made doing these and all exercises correctly much easier. The outward results came with time and effort just as with any successful program. The two work outs are great together or separate.

I purchased this dvd after reading other reviews and am glad I did. I'm 48 and have been working out cosistently for about 7 years. When I saw the description was low impact I wanted to check it out. My knees and shoulders can't take the hard pounding of the higher impact workouts and this seems to be working fine. It consists of two workouts. One is a 30 min low impact cardio which involes some dance style moves which make it enjoyable and the other is a 20 min stretch and tone which I think is very important no matter what type if workout you do. Denise is an inspiration for older woman to keep up the hard work and stay fit and healthy!

Previously I was in great shape and then slipped to an unhealthy place. I've owned Denise Austin workouts over the years so decided to try a new one. I love these workouts! I am not coordinated at all - hate aerobics at the gym since I look like an idiot - so love that I can do this at home, work at my own pace, and work up a sweat. Denise hasn't changed over the years, she's still you biggest cheerleader, which I love. I don't enjoy boot camp style instructors. If you're looking for someone who screams at you, look elsewhere. If you're looking for someone who tells you to "give yourself a pat on the back" then Denise is for you! I also like that the workouts are low impact - I have bad knees - and you can certainly bump things up a notch if you need to.

I was a little iffy about this when I got it after viewing the preview on Collage.com. I found this to be a terrible workout. Denise does not have you stay at a move very long, just 2-4 repetitions. She changed moves right when I was finally catching on. Also, it is more dance oriented than I like. I found myself having to leave out some moves because I either could not do them fast enough or they were awkward for me as a person who struggles with coordination. For example, she does these side steps with stomach twists that I could not do at all, so I just stuck to the side steps.She also did turns that I found hard to do in this workout with the other moves. I had to change some moves to be more user friendly for me. If you like dance and like short bursts of activity you may like this workout. I found it hard to follow.

Denise Austin seems like a very kind person so that is a definite positive about the video and her in general. I have other workouts by Mrs. Austin that I really like. Both are her walking workouts and they are not dance oriented at all.

I really enjoy Denise's videos, but this was not good for me. I found it hard to follow and frustrating because she didn't really repeat moves or give enough direction before switching moves to comfortably catch on to the workout. I started the video twice and turned it off after 5 minutes both times because I couldn't pick up the moves. I would not recommend this video, but would strongly recommend her boot camp or quick burn cardio videos instead.

I guess I am not as coordinated as I thought I was. These seemingly simple choreographed moves frustrated me and instead of enjoying the workout I constantly had to go back and try to get the moves right. I love Denise Austin but this workout is not for the ones who doesn't like aerobics or dance or are not coordinated. I much prefer her pilates and yoga workouts.
