But if you can get past the cheesy sets and a few whoops and hollering, this workout will get your heart rate pumping (the real purpose) and moves that you will not get when you go walking or running in the park. Walking and running are single moves, in this DVD, you are constantly doing compound moves upper and lower. In addition to moving your legs side to side and in the clockwise moves Kathy is doing...you don't do those types of moves walking the park. I wish she would come out with another walking DVD.
I hadn't used Kathy Smith's stuff since I had a 33rpm record of her and pictures to help me figure out what she was doing. :) In rediscovering Kathy, what I found was that I NEED someone with her energy, happiness, and easy-going nature to make exercise FUN AGAIN! She tells you how to get the most out of the moves, sure; but she's more concerned that you're up, and moving, and having fun, than that you do everything "exactly" as she does it. As a result, my "Core" is tightening up (with no sit-ups), I have more energy all day long, I feel happier and more focused, AND I'm losing weight!
PS - I often laugh during the workouts! Seriously! When is the last time you had so much fun working out that you actually LAUGHED OUT LOUD?
Though I agree that the way the workout is filmed (with Kathy and the other exercisers superimposed over different backgrounds and a few instances of strange flashing lights) was a little disconcerting at first, I didn't find that the style distracted from the workout, and was completely used to it by the end of the DVD.
As for unusual arm movements, such as "swatting flies," Kathy makes it clear that users can choose any arm movements they feel comfortable with during this part of the workout, but the point is to keep it lighthearted and fun!
The "Matrix Method" Kathy refers to during the workout was a great way for me to visualize and understand what we were supposed to be doing.
Overall, the workout is fun and invigorating, with ample opportunities to make it harder or easier, depending on the extent to which you choose to exert yourself, by walking, "prancing," or jogging though the exercises. I actually liked this workout much more than I do Kathy's "Ultimate Sculpt" workout, the other in her "Matrix" series, as it was much easier on my knees, although I will continue to do both workouts, on alternate days.
Once I got past all that I did add this in my mix of regular exercise DVD workouts.
This does get you sweating but not high impact.
I'm not sure if I really care for the set or the clothes for that matter. Everyone is "dressed up" in cowboy gear khaki shorts and tanks, with hats and Kathy is wearing a plaid sleeveless shirt and khaki shorts. Hardly seems like work out gear but I guess that is what they were going for.
