these tapes have a similar format. They have short
warm-ups and cooldowns and 30 minutes of aerobics. Even
though the routines are taught more briefly than usual,
they can be picked up fairly easily by the experienced
exerciser. Sometimes coordinating the arm and leg
movements can be difficult on the Hi/Lo tape. The
choreography is in Kari's usual style, dancy but not
overly complex. I like the one on one style of these
tapes. These tapes are for the self-motivated, serious
exerciser who doesn't need an MTV format, loud music and
a gimmicky setting or costumes to be motivated to
exercise. They are only 40 minutes each so they can be
combined with a toning tape, like Kari's Tone It Up, for
a total body workout.
What a delight! I found the choreography in this high/low
workout to be great fun! It's not as difficult as the
choreography in her other Great Moves hi/lo tape (is it
201?), but that's not to say it's boring by any means!
The moves here are creative and interesting, but slightly
easier to pick up than the ones in the other tape.
really like the music on this one, too. It's all vocals
that are very upbeat.
At the end, though, I found myself wanting to put it
all together "one more time." I still had lots
of energy, and could have used at least one more
run-through, preferably a few more. The entire workout is
about 35-40 minutes.
Most of the workout is high impact. If you like
high/low that's mostly high, and you're intermediate or
advanced, I highly recommend
this tape. It wins an A from me!
I agree with Annie's review word for word, except that I
slightly prefer the music in Great Moves 201. This is a
highly enjoyable tape, and a bit easier to learn that
Great Moves 201. These Great Moves videos are perfect
when I want a slightly shorter but fun workout.

Kari will never disappoint you if you love floor
aerobics. I purchased this after loving Great Moves II
and love this tape just as much. It's about 33 minutes of
solid aerobics with the standard jumping jacks, shuffles,
pivots, turns. Typical Kari. I love it. Hoping for Great
Moves III, IV, and on and on. I love these tapes because
you can do them after NAC Interval Training to extend
your aerobics to one hour if you feel the need to extend
yourself to the max ("two the max"). Kari does
a very short warm-up and very short cool-down which is
just fine with me. Highly recommended.
