I got this tape in a trade, and it's probably no
longer on the market, so this is really more of an
"instructor review". I had never seen Linda
McHugh before, but now I want to see more of her! Her
30-minute hi-lo segment is one of the toughest and best
I've seen on video. Linda wastes no time with idle
chitchat or excessive marching - she launches right into
her routine, then before you know it she's adding more
layers and fluorishes than a wedding cake. There are
three different combos, and so many steps and variations
are added that there's no time for a final run-through,
but fans of dancy Kari-style aerobics will not be
disappointed. I also love the music, mainly '80s new-wave
dance hits. Linda then hits the step for half an hour.
The steps may seem old hat compared to more recent
videos, and Linda spends more time going over them than
she did with the hi-lo, but her warmth and enthusiasm
still make the segment enjoyable. Linda definitely shows
star potential on 4002, enough to make me want to check
out her more recent videos. Oh yes, the rest of the
tape... Susan Foley, who leads the warm up and a low
impact workout, does way too many yells and silly remarks
("Are we having FUN or what!!!!") for my taste.
Rich Siebert ends the tape with an unremarkable but fun
hi-lo workout similar to his CIA 6004 work. A+ for Linda,
B- for the rest.
Instructor comments: Linda's cute as a button and so
good at cueing, only your stamina will come between you
and her workout. She does whoop occasionally - but I was
whooping too!! Rich is fun and funny. Susan, to put it
kindly, is not my style.
