There is a step guide that will teach you many of the moves that make up the foundation of the dance routines. I found this to be very helpful as I am a complete clod when it comes to dance workouts, though I am trying to work them into my workout regimen for additional variety. Marie will show you the move and repeat it several times depending on if there is a variation of the move in the working whether it's a traveling move or specific arm movements.
You start with a brief warmup then you go right into the first dance routine which is the Tummy Toning Funk Combo. Steps seen in this routine include funky two steps, step touch w/a bounce, double lunges (heel toe move), triple step, twist step, hip circles, step cross, walk ups, grapevines and body rolls. Marie teaches one step at a time, repeats it a bit until you have it down, then will gradually add on steps, each time taking the routine from the top. While some might find this repetitive, I found it helpful to learn it faster.
The next dance routine is the latin combo, taught in the same format. Steps in this segment include rock steps, cha chas, sunshine arms, sambas, twist & hold, lazy merengue, latin combia, more hip circles, and triple lunges. After this segment you cooldown and stretch a little before moving on to the floor for more concentrated ab work.Read more ›
If you are looking for something more challenging with a higher impact fat burning dance routine, then I would not recommend this video. I did this video when I was first beginning and it was great, but now my cardiovascular health is improved and I don't feel the benefits that I felt before. In other words, if you are on the more fit side, then you will probably find this routine boring and not stimulating enough. I have to add a lot of hops and jumps and arm flailing to make this video more beneficial and fun for me.
This video has a very 90's-ish bland feel to it (the dance music, the boring outfits) which doesn't help with the exciting factor, and Miss Forleo lacks the cheesy (but sincere) enthusiasm that I admire in workout gurus like Richard Simmons. She says things like "uh huh, work it" in a very dry and recited way, as if she were reading it off of a cue card. However, she does have a nice voice which is a big plus if you find the squeaky voice of the stereotypical workout instructor obnoxious.
In short, if you are looking for a low-cardio-impact that is easy on the joints, then this is the video for you. If you want something with a quicker more exciting sweaty pace, then you may want to expand your search.

loving it! I am still at a beginner level--I just started it--but I truly enjoy the dance-type aerobic activity. I also prefer to do it alone at home so it is perfect for me!Published 10 months ago by Angela A Stanton, PhD
I couldn't do the exercises because there is a lot of knee twisting. My knees don't go in those directions any more.Published 12 months ago by ldslady13
not impressed at all. I thought this was going to be a different type of dancing. I've used it a few times but I would not recommend it. Read morePublished 23 months ago by togahoney
