I ran this tape only twice. First
time through, I hated it. The steps were confusing and I
couldn't find any association between the steps and the
music's rhythm. Second time through, it wasn't so bad
but.... It starts out very promising with a nice warmup
to Trouble. But Tanya's music is barely hearable behind
Lisa's strident voice. The steps, second time through,
seemed much easier, and very repetitive, although some of
the combos were confusing at first (not aided by poor
camera work). The biggest problem is that sometimes
Lisa's energy level and her choice of steps bears little
relationship to the rhythm of the background music (you
follow her or the music, but not both). Tucker obviously
never practiced the routine which, I suppose, is in a way
endearing acause she fumbled along just the way I did.
Low and high impact alternatives are shown. You can
adjust your energy expenditure. Some interesting (to me)
variations on the leg lifts and a nice final stretch.
Overall, however, I was really disappointed in this tape
and may never play it again.
This video was designed and led by Lisa Rice. Tanya
Tucker and 5 exercisers accompany Lisa. The video
incorporates Tanya's hits, "Tell Me About It,"
"It's A Little Too Late," and "Two
Sparrows in a Hurricane." The music and aerobic
routines are fun to exercise to. However, the first
routine seems to be a little to fast for the music's
tempo. One person always demonstrates a higher impact
version. The cool-down and stretching are very relaxing.
The toning segment is also designed for beginners.
nice tape to do when one wants a light workout and a
little country in your life. Tanya's songs are fun to
