The 5-minute aerobic warm-up consists of simple choreography, gradually adding more movement and concluding with about 30 seconds of dynamic stretching. Each cardio chapter is about 6-7 minutes long. As she does in the circuit workout, Michelle gradually builds on the moves, starting with footwork, then adding arm movements, and also incorporating some higher impact here and there (one of the four background exercisers always shows low-impact modifications). She alternates right and left lead, moving through each choreographed series a total of four times. The exercise are quite similar in feel to the cardio moves on the circuit workout: they tend to be more athletic, with lots of knee lifts plus some kicks and punches, but there are also a few more dancey moves as well. As with the warm-up, the 5.5 minute cool-down is choreographed, gradually reducing the heart rate and then ending with about 1.Read more ›
In this workout, there are six complete cardio intervals that each use very different moves. All of them start out slow and then work up to a burst where it's all out. I find the moves very easy to follow along with because they aren't too dancy or difficult to do. There are the pony steps, lunges and kickboxing to name a few so they are probably all familiar. It's geared for intermediates and I could see how advanced exercisers may not find this challenging enough. I'm between intermediate and advanced and I find this easy to do, yet it's enough to keep my heart rate up from start to finish.
Michelle is a great cuer; you always know what's coming up next and I really enjoy this workout. I highly recommend it if you want interval training and as long as you aren't a complete beginner or extreme advanced exerciser. I love this.
It is a creative, fun but at the same time tough workout ( warm-up, 6 different routines and cool-down ). Michelle Dozois is encouraging and cheerful without sounding silly. I consider myself to be an advanced exerciser & got a great workout, but it is easy for beginners or intermediates ( or if you have bad knees ) to modify. What I find especially motivating about the whole series is that the women in the background are not fitness models, they are 'normal' people who improved their figure doing this routines. GREAT DVD!
Michelle is encouraging, without being annoying, a fault that plagues so many group excercise leaders. Michelle has 4 women dancing with her; three of the women have very fit body types, and 1 woman has a "normal" body type that many women using this DVD would identify with.
This DVD has become one of my favorites and I plan to purchase more DVDs from this series.

Very good and if you just want to keep moving rather than HIIT with breaks or pick up weights, this is great. Read morePublished 14 months ago by R. Dempsey
This one clocks in at about 51 minutes, and for a pure cardio workout that was a little long for what I typically prefer. Read morePublished 17 months ago by moviegrl1737

I just love all of Michelle's videos. If you are a beginner, this is a great video also. It has high and low intensity moves that anyone can do.Published on January 14, 2013 by Betty Mashburn
I workout 5-6 days a week. 3-4 of those days are using a step. I make sure to do a video that doesn't require a step to be kind to my knees :-). Read more
This is my favorite cardio workout. It's not so intense that you need to stop and breathe, but you wouldn't be able to hold a conversation either. Read morePublished on September 28, 2011 by stephanield
