I rate these routines intermediate but Andrea offers lots of modification options making these great for many exercise levels. Andrea has a nice personality and provides good cuing and form pointers. Lots of variety without complex choreo make this a very versatile dvd. Andreas poundage is fairly light but you can heavy up somewhat to up the challenge. No wasted time, and a moderate paced workout give you a real bang for your workout minute. I received this dvd to review.
