This is actually a compilation of routines from four of Fonda's videos ( 3 from Stress Reduction, 2 from Complete Workout, 2 from Lean Routine, 3 from Low Impact), but they work ok together. If nothing else, it's a good introduction to the four videos if you're not sure which one to get. [I tried Lean Routine but found the choreography too difficult and the camera moves too distracting (the routines in this selection are the easiest) and have the Low Impact video (and the selections are typical of the routines in Low Impact)]. The Stress Reduction numbers are to really nice, soft Caribbean and jazz and are fun. Fonda always does excellent cueing and either shows lower impact alternatives or they are obvious. It's probably not possible to do the entire tape at a low intensity level, but you don't have to work up to her level either. If you already have all the tapes, you probably shouldn't get this one unless it turns out that she's put together your favorite routines, too.
