This workout is about 30 minutes, and I really enjoy it. It is pretty easy - I would say the intensity and the choreography are both beginner-level, but I have two left feet and am just getting serious about exercising after a bit of a hiatus, so it works for me. I'll probably always use this video on my easy days because it is so much fun. The music is pretty good - it inspires me to move - and you have the option of turning it up louder.
This does have the usual countdown clock that is standard on most of the Beachbody DVDs I have used.
I bought the Hip Hop Abs set from Beachbody. It includes two DVDs with one longer workout called Total Body Burn that I also like, and it is a bit harder (I'll review it separately). As I do the rest of the videos I will review those as well.
I like Shaun T. He seems to be having fun, and that makes the workouts fun for me. He cues well, and the workout is over before I know it.
Fat Burning Cardio is a wonderful video that gets your heart rate up, teaches you to do what is basically a standing crunch to lose inches in your waist and thighs. He focuses on strengthening your core as well as toning your abs in this video.
I love this series. I think they are great for a beginner who doesn't know where to start in working out. The moves get your heart rate pumping and from what I understand from others that are more advanced doing the videos, too, even if you do other types of workouts, this one will still get your heart pumping!
I love the Hip Hop Abs Series. Shaun T is very good about giving instructions before you do the exercises and starting with something basic and working up to complex moves. He has 3 levels of workouts so you can start off as a beginner and work your way up to doing complex moves that are alot of fun. He has a girl that does modified versions for less advanced people and also a girl who goes "all out" and gets way into it for those that really want to push themselves.
