Low Impact Series: Slide & GlideCathe Friedrich

Full disclosure: I received a free review copy of this workout.
This workout is mainly comprised of two sections:
A cardio slide and glide segment, about 20 minutes
A strength segment that works the whole body, about 20 minutes.
The cardio section is largely standing with lots of squats and lunges in various directions and jumping jacks and other cardio moves. My favorite move was when you moved forward punching and then slid back with two large side squats. It also includes a lot of push ups and mountain climbers. Throughout this segment, Cathe cued pretty well, although once in awhile she cued with the move and seemed a little late with the cueing.
The strength segment is done on the floor with the disks and a firewalker loop. I have a non-Cathe loop that worked just fine. She works the entire body in this section. She does a good job describing how to do the moves as she moves through the segment.
I would rate this workout as high intermediate to low advanced.
Whenever I do a Cathe workout, I am struck by her professionalism. She seemed very comfortable in her role in this workout and was motivating and fun.
