This video is one of the funnest exercise videos I have ever done. It's fast paced and the moves are sometimes complex but the tempo of the music and the step routines makes the 27 minutes of aerobics go fast. It certainly will get your heart rate up and make you sweat, but you wont realize that until the aerobic section is over. The step routines are fresh and fun while certainly aerobically challenging. Your body will feel great when your done. Jay and Linda blend so well and they move back and forth between the two of them . You don't even realize at times whose leading.

One thing I need to share. I have never seen a video that shows just how much a true exercisers can sweat. Linda is absolutely dripping wet from sweat throughout this video. Linda is the worst, but the other participants are also sweating pretty hard. Another thing that is sometimes distracting is that when they switch back and forth it's hard to hear what they are saying. After you learn the routine it won't be a problem any longer because the routines are so fun.

The last 10 minutes consists is a toning segment. It starts with backward lunges off the step, then lateral raises using the x-ertube, bicep curls using the x-ertube, and last abdominal exercises. A person won't be disappointed with the exercise video.
