This is a Shaped 2 Fit video, and as with all their other tapes, the picture quality is poor. One good thing about this tape, though, is that they don't move the camera all over the place. I have some of the S2F videos where they are constantly moving it around, and, believe me, that is frustrating!
Healthquest Step is a 2-hour step tape, divided into segments of approximately 15 minutes with a different instructor for each segment. It is filmed at a live convention-type event for instructors, so the choreography is advanced. It is expected that you can just follow along. Well, yes and no. Some routines are easier to follow than others. I don't find the tape interesting enough to keep trying to learn the routines I haven't gotten yet.
One other thing I should note: If you got the San Francisco step tapes and were horrified by the fast (and I mean FAST!) music, this one is much better. This one is about the tempo of a Cathe Friedrich tape.
I rate this one a C-.
The instructors are "regular" people -- no famous video stars. They're all about average as far as instructors go -- none really stood out either positively or negatively.
