By Reviewer Dr. Beth #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 30, 2007
Rockin' Body Cario Jam is part of Michelle Dozois' Your Body Breakthru series, which also includes two other workouts, one strength and one circuit. The circuit workout was the first one I tried, and I loved it, as it combined short, fun cardio segments with toning intervals which included both dumbbells and band work. While I didn't like this workout quite as much--some of the cardio moves were a bit "fussy" to me, requiring a bit of a learning curve--overall, it's still a fun and intense cardio workout. The DVD Main Menu offers the following options: Full Workout, Express Workout, Chapters, Testimonials, More on Your Body Breakthru, Michelle's personal message, and Contact. The Full Workout is 51 minutes and consists of a warm-up, six cardio intervals, and a cool-down, while the Express Workout provides a shorter (30 minutes) version of this. No equipment is needed for this workout.

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.

Michelle Dozois is an excellent instructor. She's very outgoing, friendly and cues well. She's not over the top and she's motivating which is essential if you want to stick to using dvd's like these to get fit.
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.

Having done another workout from this series ( Circuit ) I just couldn't wait for the Amazon release and ordered it from another internet shop. I expected a great exercise routine and I'm happy to say I wasn't disappointed.
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!

I thoroughly enjoy this DVD. The workout consists of a warm-up, 6 cardio segments, and a cool-down. All of the segments are short, which makes the workout fly by. The moves are simplistic, but fun. Even though the movements are easy, I still raised my heart rate significantly. The choreography involves "big" arm movements, which help raise the intensity. High-impact and low-impact versions are presented, and 1 dancer sticks with the low-impact versions throughout the workout. This DVD is perfect for days when you don't feel like complicated choreography, but still want a good cardio workout.
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.

This is my favorite cardio workout for many reasons. I've tried a lot of other cardio only workouts from various instructors and they have never gotten my heart rate up and kept it there- this one does! Even if you're just doing the lower impact/modified moves, this one will make you sweat! Not for the faint of heart on a slow day either. Her cueing is great and while she could better explain a few of her steps (kick and fall back, box step), her moves are fresh and fun and it keeps you interested. The last segment is difficult to do on carpet. Short segments, lots of variety and an enthusastic instructor plus normal sized women (not the size 2 buff women you see in most dvd's) make this workout a keeper.
