Tamilee is a good, motivating instructor. She cues from your point of view and gives instructions on how to properly do the moves. She's also cute and will ask for "one more, please!"
Cardioblast has a short warm up and stretch and goes into floor cardio. You do not need any additional materials besides yourself, a sweat rag and some good shoes. The workout is broken down into ~5 segments, each with a song. The first song starts slow to warm you up more and the next few songs gradually increase in beats per minute so you get a good effective cardio workout. Tamilee incorporates "core" movements into the cardio, where you have to stick and hold the moves for a few seconds before going on. This cardio workout uses your arms, abs and legs effectively. There is a slower cool down song and a stretch at the end. Overall this workout goes about 35 minutes.
The Weightloss DVD uses a step and handweights to tone the body. Tamilee starts with a short warm up and stretch and then goes into one sided bun work on the step. That lasts about 9 minutes. Then you do a short arm workout and go to the other side of your buns for another 9 minutes. This is again followed by more arm work and eventually some ab work and a cooldown. This video goes about 35 minutes and even though it is not traditional cardio, your heart rate will still increase a bit and you will probably be very sweaty.
I find that either workout alone is good for a day when I am pressed for time, but that combining the workouts back to back is very effective.
Tamilee has 2 other women on set with her and Cindy (back, left) does the beginner modifications and does the Weightloss workout without a step. You will get a better workout with a step though.
These DVD's also have a lot to offer as far as "extras" - There is a nutrition guide and some recipes and on each DVD there is an extra 10 minute toning segment - one has 10 minute buns and one has 10 minute abs that is a rough workout and works mainly the obliques.
Overall, these are solid workouts that have both cardio and toning.
Fairly easy moves that really get your heart rate up
Cueing is excellent. Tamilee Webb cues according to your left and right so that you are mirroring each other. This lets you follow easily without tripping all over yourself. She is also good at letting you know what move comes next so that you keep moving. She cues before the move, not on it. She is not exactly a perky instructor, but she will keep you motivated.
This is high impact, so that is something to keep in mind for joint problems or if you are really out of shape.
There is no toning to this video, so I do my own routine to my own music after the video is over. This would also be a good place to add a toning video.
There is not a lot of stretching or flexibility training to this video. So after the toning part of my routine I do my own stretching routine. This would also be a good place to add a stretching video if you have one.
Overall this is a great video that will make you work hard. I like Tamilee's style of teaching and how she puts each routine together. Also she is encouraging without being annoying. I am creating a rotation of videos and this one is sure to stay in it for a long time.
This workout looks pretty simple, but it's actually far more challenging than it looks. Beginners like me will find it hard to keep up at first. Take several water breaks.
My only complaint is the pace of the DVD. The choreography isn't as basic as some people make it out to be; I think it will take me several more tries to get it down. It was frustrating to be behind or using the wrong feet, etc. If you have two left feet like me, be patient with this workout. Even if you aren't going the right direction or doing the arm movements exactly right, your heart is still pumping and that is what is impt.
Overall, it's a high energy cardio workout that really makes you burn calories. A good buy!
