Kimberly Spreen is the instructor (home exercisers will know her work - she's excellent) and is motivating and energetic. It's dancey and easy to follow along and not too hard to get the moves down. There are latin style moves like mambos and cha chas and regular cardio moves like jumps, kicks and jogs. She always stresses that it's more important to have fun rather than try to be absolutely perfect and try too hard. It's nice to have it filmed outdoors because seeing the sunshine is motivating when Summer is around the corner, or you are in the midst of a gloomy Winter.
This is a fun workout that is probably best for beginners or more intermediate people rather than if you are advanced - you'd be bored. I like this one and really recommend it if you want a fun workout that you can do in around 50 minutes.
It's Kimberly Spreen w/2 women backup in someone's backyard w/an incredible mountain view background. The music is all synthesizer which was annoying & not motivating.
This is mostly a lot of step touches, some "fancy" jogging, some jumping jacks w/some easy dance moves thrown in like some mambos, cha-chas, double steps, single-double lung move, chest pops, single hip circles, and kinda arobic hip hop wanna be. All the moves weren't done well in my opinion considering I like dance videos from people who can dance well w/fluidity & body awareness & enthusiasm. Kimberly has none of this..
I felt like I was in a 1980s aerobics class. That's said, this is not a "no pain, no gain" pace, but more sedentary. If she gets your heart rate up with a few jumping jacks, she immediately has a rest, so you move fast, slow, fast, slow...
She does cue very well & she goes in 1/2 time several times before going to normal tempo, but she doesn't explain the moves except from an aerobic standpoint.. say for crescent hip circles "keep that core engaged..."
It has a 5 min warmup & cool-down with 40 min "workout"

I thought that this would be a good way to get into shape, but I couldn't be more wrong. It is very slow paced, and when you are trying to follow along, they switch moves before... Read morePublished on November 24, 2009 by Kathleen Higgins
This video was not quite what I expected it to be. It's not really a "dance" video. It more of an aerobic workout done a little bit jazzier. However, it was a lot of fun. Read morePublished on February 24, 2009 by J. Reuter
