Categories: Floor Aerobics/Hi-Lo/Dance

Like the other G-Force videos, the choreograpy is for intermediate exercisers. This one also got my heart rate up, even the first time out of the box. The video begins with a warm-up lead by Patrick. It is easy to follow and it's a lot of fun. Darrin leads the first aerobics segment. His segment took a couple of viewings to get. There is a lot of side to side movement, you need a lot of room to do this video. There are also a lot of spins in this video. Rob leads the next segment, which for me was the easiest one to follow, I got it the first time through. Patrick leads the final segment, which is the most difficult one to follow. This one has one portion where you need a lot of room to run back and forward.

Rob leads the cool-down and final stretch segment.

The production and sound of this video seems better than the previous G-Force videos. It is filmed in a strange warehouse setting, which is a little distracting. Sometimes the music seems a bit too loud and overpowers the voices, but most of the time the volume is fine.

Again, you need lots of room to do this video properly. But it is a lot of fun to do and I look forward to doing it again, something that I cannot say for a lot of other HI/LO videos.

Instructor Comments:
I think the G-Force workouts are a lot of fun, mostly due to the personalities of the three G men. They are spontaneous and seem to have a lot of fun together. If you have tried a G-Force video and don't like them, this video probably won't change your mind. I like the variety of having three different instructors with different styles. Darrin in particular makes faces at one of the cameras, which you may or may not find amusing.
