Carol Lapidus, Maria Latran, Anthony De Maio, Margery Mina, Ken Mossman
This is an "okay" video; nothing to write home
about. I think this one would qualify as
It starts with a funk workout by Carol Lapidus,
who I really like. Unfortunately, my body and
funk don't get along too well. But if your
body will cooperate and you like to dance, you
might like this.
Next is Maria Latran with a low-impact floor
workout. I'm a high-impact-lover, but I think
if I were into low-impact, I would really like
this. It looks like a very fun routine. One
thing, though, I think she needs to add a little
enthusiasm in her movements. Sometimes she seemed
like she was bored. Nevertheless, I think this
would be a good workout for an intermediate
exerciser looking for low impact. Oh, by the
way -- Maria is 5 months pregnant in the video.
I couldn't even tell! Greg Twombly mentions
it at the beginning of the video, but I would
never have guessed.
The third workout is Anthony De Maio with step.
This is a dancy-type routine that looked like
a blast when I previewed it. But when I actually
did it, I didn't get the intensity I had
expected. Again, a very good choice for a
dancy intermediate exerciser.
Finally, Margery Mina and Ken Mossman teach
a slide routine. I don't have a slide, so
I didn't do this part.
Overall, this is not up to the standards we've
come to expect from CIA. However, for an
intermediate-level workout, I would give it
an A or A-. I think exercisers at this level
would find it challenging enough and fun at
the same time.
