Year Released: 1997

Categories: Floor Aerobics/Hi-Lo/Dance

I traded this tape away fairly quickly as I was disappointed with it. I have to admit that I may be biased because I will always like step aerobics more than floor. However, there are other floor aerobics tapes that I do like. This just isn't one of them.

The routine is taught add on style with Darrin going first, Rob second and Patrick last. Patrick's section is the only part that really has any intensity at all. That's where you get into leaps and some really fun moves. But, alas...the tape is uneven. There was way too much side to side step touching while the instructor is previewing the next move. My heart rate would plummet plus I got really bored. I decided that I would need to do alot of modifications to maintain intensity with this tape and I'm not a modifying kind of person. I prefer to do the tape as is with a few mod's.

As others have said, you need to have a fair amount of space to do this tape as there are a lot of side to side movements, turns, etc. I definitely found this to be true. I have a good sized space and found myself running out of room. I give this tape a B-,C+.

Instructor Comments:
Patrick's choreography is always my favorite of the G-Force tapes. This tape is no different. He seems to put together moves that flow well and are the most challenging. That's not meant to down the other two guys, Darren and Rob. I just am able to pick up and have more fun with Patrick's moves.
