By Chandler #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on August 9, 2009
I decided long ago I should cancel my gym membership and spend the money on dvds just because I'm more likely to workout at home. Because of that, I've built up a fairly decent collection to compare. This is a great one!

Instuctor: I think an instructor can vary via the routine. I totally panned another one of Kathy's dvds because she was hard to follow and the cueing was bad. Not so in this one. This is really the first dvd I've seen that truly stretches as a 5 star dvd for both a beginner to an advanced fitness person using the same moves...because the calorie burn is high (I'll go into that in a minute), it keeps your interest, but the moves and cueing aren't so complicated that you need a dance degree to follow them...you will pick them up without having to use your "rewind" button to do so. so both a beginner and advanced will enjoy it and get a great return.

caloric burn: And isn't this what matters most? I wear a bodybugg to measure my daily caloric burn...and I only mention this becaiuse what I say is not based upon perceived exertion but measured exertion...I burned a high number of calories during this workout...it gets an A plus on what it's meant to do, yet it does so without FEELING difficult. Big plus. Burned more than during many of my other cardio dvds.

Moves: You'll burn the calories by simple steps and arm movements but not lots of squats and things that may hurt the joints or knees of a beginner. (squat moves aren't a problem for me but I know they are for some and, in all honesty, it's nice to have a routine that doesn't focus totally on those since so many already do. It's different and works you out without stressing out joints, much like an elliptical does!

After Christmas I purchased several DVDs in an effort to add variety to my walking routines. Of the DVDs I purchased, this is my least favorite. I found the matrix thing gimmicky, and ineffective. Perhaps I am just a klutz, but also found that many of the "steps" were impossible to do and added nothing to the workout. The background was beautiful, at least at first, and the people in the DVD were too. They seemed to have no problem with the steps, but that did not help me. There were other "gimmicks" with the background, such as putting it on a billboard, side of a train, etc. As you can tell, I got distracted by elements of the DVD which did not add to the effectiveness of the workout. I do not use this one and feel it was a waste of money. Nice location and hat.

I would walk three miles a day at a fast pace and would never break a sweat! With this dvd, not only did I break a sweat, but,I began to tone my body.Imagine that, having fun, while walking in the rain, snow, or whatever the weather. It's and inside walk and you don't need much space. It's almost like having Kathy right there with you as you are walking. A friend suggested this DVD, and I have never been more grateful! It's very low impact but high energy. You may want to buy some weights, but even that is not absolutely necessary. This is my second purchase. The first one was later given to my daughter. With children, and a busy schedule, I really felt that she could squeeze in a half hour of walking in place. She and the kids loved it! Hey, you can even do the routine while looking at your favorite SOAP. Multi-tasking, what fun!

This has a slightly different take on a walking workout. The steps are easy to execute but still get your heart pumping.The background music was upbeat, but not to loud as to where you couldn't hear the instructions. I like that there is a cast along with Kathy Smith. There is also several movement that work your abs. I could really feel them working. The next day my abs were slightly sore. I

This DVD workout is a little bit out of the ordinary. It has the personality of a cowgirl and the music of a electronica DJ. I will say Kathy Smith looks pretty darn cute in a cowboy hat. This workout is very active and will make you sweat and maybe even get a little out of breath. Keep a bottle of water nearby.

Now as far as creativity goes this is off the charts. I mean scenes change with rapid frequency so you are never bored. Some of the sets look a little small for five people. Now and then the people exercising are not fully seen as they are behind a set piece. It looks like part of this was filmed outside and part in a studio. But it is all made to look like it is outdoors in the desert.

This has four main segments which can be done all together although I don't suggest you do it that way. Maybe take one day and do the 29 minute workout, do the 13 minute walking workout another day and do core exercises on a separate day too. I say this because some of the moves are repeated in each workout. You may however want to do the stretching exercises each time you workout.

What I liked was that the music is by Daveed. I thought: "Wait I've heard this music before someplace." The music is not overbearing like most dance music. It is very motivating but not irritating at all.

I'd suggest you rent this before you buy it as it is the most unique workout I've ever tried. Would I do it again? Sure Kathy is the cutest and I have yet to do a workout by her that I didn't at least like. She infuses this workout with her super fun personality.
