Is there a better way to work your body, burn calories and lose weight than to dance? "Pump it Up - The Ultimate Dance Workout" is a concept that mixes club dance with aerobic exercise to produce a fast, effective and enjoyable way of getting fit and burning that unwanted fat. The DVD is shot in the same location as the video and the workout is choreographed and presented by Deanne Berry, the tough disciplinarian who stars in the Eric Prydz video and hails from Australia where she taught aerobics classes before coming to the UK to carve her career as one of the most sought after dancers in pop videos, tours & TV appearances. She has put together an explosive 70 minute workout, with a warm up to start, 3 dance workouts and a chill out cool down which covers all the great moves from the video interspersed with loads of modern club moves to really pack a punch.

It's divided into several sections, so you can always choose the ones if short on time:
1) Warm up - about 8-10 minutes
2) Dance Section - about 20 minutes
3) High Energy - another 20 minutes
4) Bums and Tums - about 10 minutes
5) Cool Down - about 15 minutes
I do 30 minutes of cardio in the gym, so usually when I choose to workout with this DVD I'd do the warm pp and then high energy. I find the dance section less challenging, and I like to do the difficult part first, so I always do the high energy first and then if I have extra time, I'll do the dance section.
Deanne is very encouraging (in fact she is called Ms. Motivator now I think), although she does not give proper "warning" about what's coming up sometimes. But as you get familiar with the routine, you know what to expect next.
Overall this is my favorite workout DVD I have to say. I highly recommend it!
The video itself is pretty basic and there is one brief part in the dance section that is edited incorrectly to what Deanne is instructing. However, it's only about 30 seconds and otherwise, I haven't found any other major mistakes. After a solid month of use without getting sick of it, I finally ordered my own copy and um, figured out a way to get my American DVD player to play a Region 2 disc. I like that I can skip around in the workout, so if I'm feeling a bit tired, I skip the Pump It Up section or mix up the order for something different. I've since ordered Pump It Up: Burn It, Lose It (also Deanne Berry) and just ordered some of the Gareth Walker MoS DVD's to try something a bit different. If you like a dance-based exercise video, then definitely check this out!
It's pretty intense. There are sections that you're either supposed to do all together or split up if you like. I can never do all of them in a single try. It really works you!
