At first I was annoyed by Aileen's cutesy mugging for the camera, but she's really not a bad instructor. Her cuing is good, her choreography is fun, and her comments are encouraging without being chatty or silly. She doesn't give many form pointers - you just have to watch what she does. She also doesn't tell you how to modify intensity, although she shows you with comments like "OK now, power up!" and moving her arms harder.
