This is a Sara City Workout, which most know that the production quality is not the best. Think of watching a home movie. And the music is just "generic" aerobic music. But despite all of that, I liked the workout. Yes, the video requires a second step. If you wanted to use the floor as your second step, you could; but I think that would take away the fun of that second step. The choreography I would call intermediate, not difficult. She had a couple of "rhythm" moves that I thought were inventive: A syncopated "over the top", some stomps and slaps on the step and some foot slaps; a "V" step using both steps and an "O" step-going over the top from 1 step to another. Now, the ending of the tape was abrupt. She just simply ran out of time; so there's no cool down(so to speak) and a short stretch. This was a shock, but not much of a problem for me. I can do that on my own. I would rate this tape as a B+, just because of the production quality and a few minor errors.
I found Jen to be very likeable. She talked as if you were in class with her-normal person; not some rigid drill master giving cues. Very casual.
