CIA 2K01: Two Jammin' Workouts in One

This video consists of a high/low and a step section. The high/low is fun, but quite repetitive. In fact, when I previewed it, I was so disappointed because it looked downright boring with all the repetition. Fortunately, when you actually do it, it's not that bad. You definitely wouldn't want to do it too often, though, or you'd die of boredom. I do find the warmup and cooldown almost intolerable, though. Now those are Boring with a capital B! She could have used that time better for more stretches. The step is really a circuit workout. You do stepping intermixed with kickboxing routines. This is pretty good, but the kickboxing can take up LOTS of space. You're moving forward, backward, and side-to-side. I found I couldn't do it correctly AND have my step laying out. So I modify a lot. Sometimes I even skip the kickboxing parts and just do the step. Overall, this is an intermediate/advanced workout that is fun, but has lots of room for improvement. Grade B+.

Instructor Comments:
Gay is an awesome instructor. She cues very clearly and shows a lot of energy and enthusiasm.
