As you can see from the title this video is in
french. It is produced in Québec, Canada in the NTSC
format. (It is the same as in the USA).
I have had this video for 4 years now. I still do it
from time to time, when I need an easier but complete
workout in less than an hour.
The SET is located in a studio and looks pretty
basic. There are painted panels and plants, it looks
decent. (Budget for decors are not as big as in the USA)
The MUSIC is good and varied. The warm up is done on
techno pop, most of the aerobics is on south american
songs, the toning is on popular music ( Taylor Daine,
Elton John,...) and the stretching is on an instrumental
piece from Sade.
The INSTRUCTOR and her team do a good job. The team
is composed of 4 women ( One in her 20ies, one in her
30ies, one in her 40ies and one in her 50ies) They want
to make all of us welcom :o}! They do the routine from
the beginning to the end showing some modifications. The
instructor on her part cues well and maintains good form.
She is very likeable.
The WARM UP is well composed, it efficiently gets you
ready for the aerobic section.
The floor AEROBIC segment is diveded in 5 small
routines. The moves are simple and easy to follow.
COOL DOWN: There is none, right at this time you
check the level at wich you have been working. I walk
around during that time to cool down.
The TONING section is also well composed. It works
the upper, mid and lower body. No accessories are needed.
The STRETCHING portion is also complete. She makes
you stretch from neck to toes.
In conclusion this video is one that I recommend to
beginners and intermediate trainers (for easier days). It
might not be as glamorous as the ones made in the USA,
but it is a good workout.
