This workout is divided into 3 sections, beginner, intermediate, and advanced. It is then followed by a short cooldown, and a nice abs section. This is a good tape for those, like myself, who are just getting started in step, but need a higher intensity workout. Choreography is fairly basic. Once you get these routines down, you can throw in the "intensifiers" earlier on, and get a very good workout. Kelli's cueing is really good. Her attention to form is also wonderful! It would be nice if she specified right or left in her cues, but I can work around it. For the most part the moves are athletic. There are a few box steps and grapevines, but those are in the warm up and cool down sections. If I could change one thing about this tape, it would be to do a longer cooldown before starting the abs work. The abs section has some unique (to me, anyway) exercise positions. I can only think thta is good,. It should help provide a slightly different way of working the muscles, so they stay "confused."
