The routine is broken down so that you can choose to do a few minutes of the step routine, target your lower body areas (there's a whole section that uses the step to do more intense squats and lower body toning w/out weights), or you can do the entire tape. It doesn't have a lot of choreographed dance moves, which makes it easy to follow and do in a small foot area. Yet, there's enough variety to make it fun. If you're not (what I call) a "workout warrior", it's intense enough where you can work up a nice sweat, but not so intense that you feel like you are going to pass out half way through. And as stated by other reviewer's, you can easily increase or lower the intensity by using heavier weights or elevating the step, which Gilad states in his introduction.
After 13 years, it's still one of my top-5 home-workout tapes/DVDs!
This video does not have fancy step choreography, but it is a solid workout and REALLY works the muscle groups. The stepping part is secondary to the tone, but you're working out nonetheless. In fact, you barely notice you're doing step during the routine, but afterwards you really feel it.
I gave it five stars because it is "step and tone" and it is a great workout. He breaks the workout down into pieces, so you can do 30 minutes, 40 minutes or a full hour. I also found that after the second time I did the video I was completely familiar with the routine enough to be focusing on my form instead of what the next step was.
My husband complains that it sounds like he's barking orders...but that could just be because they're out on a beach (I noticed that about his other step video too). I don't feel like he is. Also, I have worked out in gyms before, so I know how to do a lot of the weight lifting parts, but he doesn't actually go over proper form except for on the step. So if you're not big on weights, watch the video carefully so you know you're form is correct.
All in all, I wish I had this video years ago.

Gilad makes me start sweating at the warm up! I love this dvd, I do it with 2 lbs hand weights and the lower step level. It's a great workout overall.Published 20 days ago by Paula Orozco
I definitely like this dvd. I never tried any of Gilad's workout videos before, so his routine is a little complicated for a beginner. But with practice it will become easier. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Jennifer P

Makes you sweat and is kinda complicated compared to the jenny ford I like to do. Since Gilad was the only one with the 5 star ratings, I had to check it out to see how good it... Read morePublished 5 months ago by bettyboob83
This is a solid workout - and the classic 80s aerobic outfits are amusing while you sweat! Easy enough to pick up the moves but still challenging enough to be a good workout.Published 6 months ago by Angela816
