Keep on Rebounding

Holly Anderson, Darren Carter
Year Released: 2000

Categories: Rebounding


This is my first (and only, so far) Rebound video. It is good in that it introduces a number of fun and easy moves you can do even without the video. However, it is bad for a first video because the instructor is not very clear in giving directions (even the six background rebounders have trouble keeping up!), so it can be discouraging.

The camera people also add to the confusing nature of this video. The camera sometimes transitions to a different angle, one beat off, so that even tho I might have been doing a certain move correctly, it will be offbeat. The scene then transistions back to the on-beat which I *was* doing before the angle change. (I'm sure that paragraph itself is confusing enough! You get the picture.)

And finally, I was disappointed that I paid so much for what turned out to be a very low-budget and not clean (ie, lots of mistakes) exercise video. Oh well.

On a positive note, I DO get my heart-rate up.

Instructor Comments:
I have to agree with the other review that Holly is stiff and doesn't cue very well. She sometimes loses count and then changes the move before the called-out set is completed. There's also this one part where she completely forgets a certain move, which throws off the rest of the Team Rebound. So, needless to say she was very difficult to follow. I've exercised to it for about a month now, and am finally catching on. Darren Carter in the "advanced section" is a lot clearer in giving instructions and a lot more motivational.
