This was a lot of fun. Best part was the music. It was real music that I recognized - not instrumentals.
I took a live turbo jam class. The music blew me away in the live class and the intensity of the class left me tired.
This workout takes it down a notch, At full intensity I still didn't feel wiped afterwards, but I felt i got in a decent high-intermediate workout.
The music's intensity was also different from the live class, but it was still really motivating to hear 'real music' and not that dynamix stuff that i'm starting to loathe.
About me: My workout level is high intermediate. I can do Cathe's KPC without wanting to keel over, and without lowering intensity, but I can't jog, nor can I do Cathe's MIC.
I did this barefoot and was glad I did. It felt good. I did it out of laziness, and a desire to just break into my new workout, but my feet, ankles, hips aren't protesting.
Final thoughts: If BB puts out more of these, I will buy them.
Chalene is friendly and motivating and doesn't cross over the perky line.
Her cueing seemed a little 'late' at times, but I had no trouble keeping up.
