This is a brand-new video; apparently it just came on the market in November '96, along with it's partner. Functionally Fit: Peak Fat Burning (which I also have but have not yet done).

This tape breaks down the workout into 2 parts, approximately 12 minutes long each, with a warm-up and cool-down. The first part is the 'easy' part (although you can adjust for your own preference), consisting of squats (my personal favorite), both 2 legged and 1 legged. The second section is very similar to the first in the type of excercises, but more intense. I have been doing aerobics for over 15 years, and tapes for 8 or 9. I don't think I have ever done a tape that left me with such sore muscles (for 3 days no less!) considering the length of the tape!! Now, there is a 'good sore' and a 'bad sore'; this definitely was of the good variety. I used this tape after a step tape for toning; it probably will be good to do after the Peak Fat Buring partner tape. I'm going to try that this weekend. If you want a short, intense workout for your legs, this is a good tape for you.
