Okay, I agree with Maryann about all that marching in place ... however, I love the choreography on this tape! I had so much fun with this workout that I actually considered rewinding and doing it all over again. The only other tape I have enjoyed this much is Kari's United Steps. Kari is having a great time leading this workout. Her enthusiasm is contagious. The dancers are wonderful as well. Their form is amazing.
On my second day with this tape, I dealt with all that marching in place by either jogging or doing step touch moves instead. My heart rate was definitely in the target zone.
Because Kari broke down these combinations so well, I made it through the entire routine the first time I viewed the tape. This is a big deal as the choreography is complex and dancy -- lots of turns and leaps.
The floor work at the end is both challenging and a nice change of pace. It did not seem that difficult, but my legs were tired the next day! I guess I would call this section a combination of toning and yoga. I definitely think I can grow with this part of the workout; it requires a lot of balance, strength, and flexibility.
In summary, I am really glad that I found this tape. It is a great addition to my collection of typical hi/lo, step, and weights. Kari is great in this video. Her cueing and form are great as always. She just seems so excited about leading this workout!
