Great Buns and Thighs Workout

There are several reviews so I'll be brief. This is an old workout now, mine has been converted to DVD and did it from the dust bunny list. I think it stands the test if time if you can ignore the leotards with G-strings on the outside. Simple moves, enough cardio to keep your heart rate up a bit. She gives harder (add air) and easier options (no step) to modify to suit you. I used an 8" step and felt the leg work well but without getting the shakes. Hooting by Kathy is there but not so much as to be a problem.

Instructor Comments:
Cueing is good, as usual. She makes an error at one point but the group knew what to do and she was able to laugh at herself about it and leave it in the workout. Cathe would probably have refilmed the segment to omit the error. I prefer the former choice.
