I love this workout DVD! I did it for the first time yesterday and can tell that it'll quickly become a favorite in my library of twenty some-odd videos. Kathy Kaehler has a great personality and it shines through in this production. I have three top criteria for choosing workout videos: 1) it HAS to be easy to follow (if I have to think too much about what's going to come next, I can't focus on what I'm doing NOW); 2) I want a challenging, but doable, workout that I can grow with; and 3) the instructor must not annoy the *&$# out of me. Kaehler's Basics: Workout Class passed all these criteria -- and more -- with flying colors. She is encouraging without being kindergarten teacher-ish, can laugh at herself, and has a real class following her (although they're all thin and in-shape, they don't look like silicone barbies with plastic smiles pinned on their faces). If you are extremely advanced and require complex choreography, this may not be the workout for you (unless you want to use it on an easy, no-brain day). But it's perfect for the rest of us! I was able to do this workout the whole way through the first time without fumbling, but it'll definitely grow with me. I've got a significant amount of weight to lose, so I had to modify by reducing some of the arm movements, etc., but that's a good thing because that means that the video will grow with me. Try it -- chances are, you won't be disappointed. There aren't many workout DVDs that make the time fly and this one does just that. It has my unequivocal endorsement. :) By the way, if you don't have a step, it's worth getting one -- it'll make the workout more challenging (you can always move to the floor when you get tired). The high-end ones cost around (...), but you can get copycats (that's what I have) for around (...) I think at discount chains. Happy sweating to you!

What I love about Kathy Kaehler is her attitude. She's very reassuring about progress...encouraging you to push yourself as far as you can, but if that's not for the entire workout when you first try to do it, just to build up over time. She seems to have a warm personality, but low-key. I found her cueing to be very easy to follow. I also like the fact that she emphasizes fitness and strength...whether you're already slender or have weight to lose (which I do).

Some people have complained about the simplicity of her steps, but honestly, that was one of the things I enjoyed. You know yourself...whether or not you want a mental challenge while you're working out. Personally, I don't.

While I was able to complete the workout right away, I found it extremely challenging to begin with. By the end, I was thoroughly tired. The first time I was able to complete it with high energy from start to finish was a real thrill, because I knew I'd made a lot of progress to get to that point.

I think this is a great DVD to have in your fitness toolbox.

This workout is very basic - and that's a good thing. If I wanted to dance, I'd go to a club. When I work out, I want to be able to create resistance while concentrating on the motion and the muscle groups I'm using. This sort of simplicity in Kathy's workout has allowed me to drop to a size 4 in three months without any sort of dieting (I enjoy food too much to give it up.) I have to admit, though, because I usually work out at 5 a.m., I generally follow along without sound. On the few occasions I've worked out with the volume up, I felt like the music must have been added in later because there were places she was awkwardly out of rhythm. I still think it's an awesome workout that one can make as easy or hard as they want by adjusting their energy level or adding wrist and ankle weights.

I did this workout not knowing what to expect as I have read the reviews. I am an intermediate exerciser who likes to work up a sweat without the steps being too complex. I do this video on risers. It is 30 min of pure basic step so if you're into complex choreography, then you'll be bored. Some say it is repetitive, but I like doing the move enough times to know what I am doing and to benefit from it! I am not at the point where I want fancy footwork. The stretch at the begining and end were good and it was set to classical music which I thought was nice! The class seemed like a real class of exercisors. I recomend it to you if you want a good heart pumping workout without complicated moves! The negatives of this DVD is the production quality such as some blurry spots and the music is rather faint. In any case, it's still a good buy!

Love this DVD. I, like some of the other reviewers, like the uncomplicated steps. I like that you really work a muscle group without feeling like it's an audition for a Broadway show.

The best thing about this DVD is Kaehler herself. She's really positive but down to earth. She's NOT just another ditzy aerobics instructor! Reinforces at the right spots, makes it really feel like you're part of the class, and she wants you to do your personal best, at whatever level that may be. After several rounds of it, I'm still not bored and look forward to working out with the DVD further.

Oh... and you will SWEAT!!
