5.0 out of 5 stars Fun!!! Great workout as well. July 23, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Especially while the show is airing, who doesn't want to feel like they can be part of So you think you can dance! Totally fun to dance with a bunch of dancers from past seasons, and get a great workout at the same time.

Three different styles of dance routines (hip hop, contemporary, and disco), you can pick one or do all three, and there are separate chapters for the instructions to learn the routines that you can skip and go straight to the workouts after you get them down. Learning the steps is nice and slow, and easy to follow or repeat if you get lost. Then in the workouts they start with doing the routine counting, and get faster, add music, until it's more like a performance at the end - just music no counting at full speed. There is also a bonus dance that mixes the styles together. The dancers on the video are Travis, Katee, Dmitry, Twitch, Lauren, and Courtney.

My only slight complaint is the music is a bit generic, so you aren't going to feel like you are telling any kind of story in the routine like from the show, but after all it is an exercise dvd, so this isn't that big of a deal. It would be cool if they came out with a couple that were focused more on just dance so you feel more like a real routine though. But for now I'm pretty happy they did this at all, and I'm looking forward to trying the other one, Tone and Groove!

5.0 out of 5 stars First impression-AMAZING!!!! July 26, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just received the So You Think You Can Dance Get Fit Cardio Funk and Tone & Groove dvds yesterday (I tried CF yesterday and T&G today), so my reviews will be based on my first impressions, and then I'll edit them again later regarding the long term results.

First thought-I LOVE these dvds! Because the routines were explained well and taught in a progression, I was able to pick up the choreography for each dance the first time through, though I felt all of the routines were definitely challenging and VERY effective as workouts! After just finishing the second dvd today; my muscles are sore, I'm sweating, and I feel fantastic (and like I worked really hard)! The dancers were all very energetic, encouraging, and none of them ever missed a beat/step on the routines. It was exciting to see all of these great personalities from the show (definitely 5 of my many favorites) choreographing, dancing, and having such a blast out there-and it's even more fun to dance along with them!

Getting down to business, the menu screen has a 'Play All' option which takes you through the warm-up, all 3 routines (with instructions), and the cool down. In the 'Workouts' section, you can choose between the 3 routines (with or without instructions) and the bonus workout that combines the three styles with some extra steps (also with our without instructions). The Warm-Up and Cool Down sections are taught by the whole group of dancers, switching off. They're the same combination of dance-infused stretches on both dvds and they've got a funky flavor going on the Warm-Up and more of a bluesy tone on the Cool Down. I found them to be fully effective in preparing me for the workouts and cooling me down afterward, as well as enjoyable ways to begin and end the session.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed December 10, 2011
Format:DVD
I read the reviews on Amazon before purchasing this DVD, so I expected it to be a good, fun workout. I was extremely disappointed.

Most dance workouts are arranged like an aerobics class. The teacher teaches you a move to the music, and then you practice that move while watching the teacher. Then you move onto the next part, you practice it, then put the moves together. This way, you are constantly moving while creating muscle memory.

The creators of this DVD decided it would be better to spend an absurd amount of time having the audience just watch the instructor talk through the dance before actually getting to engage in it. When you do start dancing, it's to the instructor counting out a beat rather than to actual music. After some of that, you finally get to do the dance to music.

This means that over the course of 20 minutes, you learn one short dance routine, and you only dance it to music for 7 minutes. In order to get a workout, you have to just repeat that part over and over again.

I think the whole setup was a really poor choice by the creators of this DVD, and I regret purchasing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Dance Workout Yet! August 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The two So You Think You Can Dance Get Fit DVD's are the best thing to come out since my favorite summer TV show started five seasons ago! This one, Cardio Funk, is such a wonderful change from the same old regular contrived "hip hop" moves in 10-minute segments, or proliferation of oldies music dance tapes. YUCK! I would rate this DVD as intermediate with some impact. If you are not already fit and haven't done dance workouts before, you will be overwhelmed by the choreography; start out with Petra Kolber. I consider it an interval workout, considering the slowness of the beginning choreography of each dance segment. However, each dance builds in tempo until it is being done at full speed and full impact. Even the 10-minute or so warm up starts very easy and builds up to a cardio tempo. However, I didn't feel I would have gotten a full workout unless I did the entire tape, which was about 140 minutes long. I must say, the time absolutely flew by.

Some things you don't get on an ordinary dance exercise tape: the contagious energy and enthusiasm from the SOTYCD crew. Also, really creative choreography. And don't think these guys don't know their physiology as well as say, Kathy Smith. They have been training for years, and throughout the DVD they point out how to do moves correctly to avoid muscle strain.

Throughout the teaching of each set of choreography (hip-hop with Lauren, disco with Courtney and contemporary with Travis), the moves initially seem confusing when they are taught one-on-one with the dancer. But they are done again and again, slowly adding more dancers and slightly increasing tempo, then adding the music, and by the end when they are doing it full tempo with music, I totally had it down.
