Mindy leads this 60 min cardio workout alone in a living room set w/ a gorgeous ocean view in the background. The dvd offers warmup, cardio kick, cardio dance, cardio sport, and cooldown. Mindy offers modification options for many of the exercises. You will not need any equipment for this workout.
Cardio Dance: More of an old school hi-lo than true dance IMO- which I liked. Lots of fun! Exercises include: mambo- cha cha, V step, scoop up, hops, kicks, cardio lunges, and finishes with some microburst versions of the previous exercises.
Cardio Kick: Cardio kickboxing with some aerobic transitions. Exercises include: punch & kick combos, V step, shuffle & punch, knee pulls, speed bags, lunge hops, skiing, and jacks. Easy to follow but not boring.
Cardio Sport: This section is all microbursts- 4 minutes of work followed by 2 minutes of active rest. The "work" segments are broken down into 20 seconds "on" and 10 seconds rest. Exercises include: kick to floor touch, out out in in, knee hops, skater, jacks, and tire run.
I would rate this an intermediate workout. The sport section was shorter but a bit more intense than the others. You could easily adapt this workout to fit any fitness level. Mindy is a great lead and her cuing & form pointers were very good. Very versatile dvd- use it in whole or easy to break up for shorter w/o's. I received this dvd to review.
