Tim Culwell, Rich Seibert
I love this workout! This is just slightly
over an hour long including the warmup and
cooldown, and about 40 minutes is stepping.
Tim and Rich each take turns teaching a segment,
and then they are woven together. It's so
much fun, and it's something of a mind exercise,
too, when you "split" the routines and weave
them into one.
The music is excellent (the kind you hear on
CIA tapes), and the instructors do a good job
of keeping the intensity up even during the
learning stages. Rich's segments usually
involve a lot of power, and Tim's are more
Both the choreography and intensity are
intermediate/advanced. In Tim's past videos,
he usually stuck to more moderate or basic
choreography, but not in this workout. None
of the choreography is super-advanced, but
there are a lot of quick directional changes
that might leave you a little frustrated if
you're not used to that kind of thing.
The quality of the video leaves a little to
be desired, especially since it goes for $24.95
from IDEA. The picture and lighting could be
improved a lot. I'm not a video producer, so
I don't know the technical terms, but it just
doesn't seem to be in focus as well as it
could be. Also, my copy has a generic IDEA
cover, and I think they should be able to give
you a "real" cover for $24.95.
But none of that lessens my enjoyment of this
fabulous workout. If the quality were better,
I'd give it an A+. But since it's not, I guess
it will have to be an A-.
Instructor comments: Both Tim and Rich are dynamic, very likeable
instructors with cueing that is right-on.
Their choreography is extremely well put-
