This is a little gem. I was gasping for air at the end of the 30 minutes and I'm in pretty decent shape (I can do all the cardio coaches at fairly high settings and full ramp on the elliptical, and I can do most Cathe workouts).
She has some interesting cardio bursty moves with reasonably-tempo'd weight work.
You really get about 28 good minutes of hard work with no rest breaks.
This is one to own, as far as I'm concerned. I did it on a cardio coach day. I could easily see alternating the two maximal workouts every day with cardio coach tacked on for a really good fat burning workout regimen.
Faux-tough-guy attitude gets weary, but I didn't find her annoying enough to detract from the workout like I do with some other instructors.
She came up with a good workout here, I just wish she'd tone down the attitude.
