This is a very long workout divided into two
segments. There is an excellent 25 minute step segment
with good music and excellent instruction. I consider it
intermediate to advanced stepping and Candace Copeland is
one of the best instructors. There is a cool down after
the step segment that can also be used as a warm-up for
the high-low. High-low is very good, dancy and a lot of
fun. Great music too. If you complete the entire workout,
your are getting a good 60-minute cardio workout. I
highly recommend this
video for intermediate-advanced exercisers.
This half step, half hi/lo workout is one of my
favorites. You start with 30 minutes of fun step routines
about 25 minutes of even more fun hi/lo. In between the
two segments, there's a warmup/cooldown, depending on
whether you're going on to the hi/lo.
I always do both
segments together. I love combo workouts like this, and I
have a strong opinion that the step should always be the
first segment, as this one is. (If it's not first, your
legs get tired and you trip over the step.) The complete
workout, including warmups, stretches, etc., is about an
hour and 10 minutes.
The intensity and choreography are both at an
upper-intermediate level. And the choreography is fun, a
lot more than your traditional step and hi/lo. The music
is really good, too.
I give this tape an A. It's my second-favorite of
Candice's workouts. (The first one is Step Ahead.)
