I like this straight-forward, nuthin' fancy step workout because I can vary the intenisty so much. Done straight out of the box it is solid intermediate.

Options are:

6" or 8" step. The tempo is Reebok-slow, and the choreography is simple enough that I don't stumble on my step at 8".

Plyo options. Keli introduces each new move w/o power moves. You add them if and as you are ready.

Length. The workout is divided into three progressively more intense sections. Do 1 section(12 min) 2 sections (22 min) or all three (32 min). For a longer workout I rewind and repeat one of the sections. It's no worse than a CIA 'take it from the top' tape. (I don't mind aTIFTT)

The step is followed by an 8 min ab section which emphasises core stablization. My favorite move is the 'dead bug' - raising and lowering one leg. I can really feel this one in my lower abs.

Instructor Comments:
Keli's cueing is flawless.
