Spicy hot and energetic, this well-designed, fun-filled Crunch Cardio Salsa workout keeps you burning body fat as you dance, wave your arms, and swing your hips to live drums with a Latin flair. Salsa, meringue, samba, and cha cha steps highlight these high-energy aerobic dance patterns, taught one step at a time, then building gradually into combinations. The footwork is fast-moving but not difficult to learn, thanks to the careful way perky instructor Giselle Roque de Escobar teaches and cues. She performs the workout accompanied by 6 bare-bellied women and one man, and an exuberant and skillful drummer. Everyone is fit, young, lean, and enthusiastic. The workout heats up quickly and burns for 40 minutes. Recommended for aerobic dance fans who want to spice up their workouts with a Latin flavor. --Joan Price

I sweated up a storm & after only doing this twice I've seen small change in my abs/waist! It has a lot of waist & leg exercise. If you've never done Latin dance it can take time to get the steps but I wanted a good workout DVD & this delivered it for me.
As an instructor, Giselle is right on top of things. Some of the steps and combinations are a bit tricky, and you have to really pay attention to do the routine well the first or second time, but expect to have to do this video at least three times before you really get it. If you find yourself messing up, just laugh and go back to your basic step. Giselle does have a bit of an accent, but I find her very easy to understand.
Overall, I enjoy this workout. It's fun, and features a variety of women of different shapes and sizes - some not even wearing real workout clothes. The message of this video seems to be that no matter who you are or what fitness level you're at, you can have fun and get a great workout. I don't know about you, but I find that incredibly inspiring.
One of the things I like best about it is that the instructor Giselle cues really well and also clearly breaks things down for each combination. She gives you plenty of advance notice, and her cueing is always perfect.
When she first introduces a new move, the camera also focuses on just her legs so that you can see exactly what the move entails and how to do it. After Giselle introduces the basic move, she builds on it, adding various combinations and arm movements so that you feel like you're getting a total body workout.
When I first purchased this DVD, I was also worried that it wouldn't provide a good aerobic workout, but it really does! I'm an intermediate-level exerciser, and I've found that each time I do this workout, I get a great cardio workout that really gets my heartrate up.
It's a fun workout with great music and an upbeat instructor; she makes the routine so much fun that it's enjoyable to work out!
The instructor is energenic and vibrant, and although I'm a total klutz when it comes to learning dance moves, she goes about it at a nice enough pace that after a few sessions I even got the hang of it. The warmup works smoothly into the following routines. The beat of the music fits well with the moves, and you just have to have fun doing it! The 40 minutes goes by so fast it's amazing.
If you're looking for a very fast paced, aerobic, "take your breath away" exercise routine, this is *not* it. But if you're looking for something to work that heart, limber up and shed some calories along the way, try it!

I don't care how I dance with this, but the most important thing is that I am trying to follow them.
While I am following them for dancing, I fell really happy.
