I love Tamilee!!

In Buns of steel 7 Tamilee did a step workout where she was with two other exercisers and she was in an animal print. Loved that step workout!

She had a leg workout that was barre in nature where she wears a flip backed hat..Legs of steel. Excellent workout.

But I don't remember her doing a step workout with a hat. Hmmm...did I miss one

My first was Buns of steel 2 with Marsha Macro, then I went to Buns of steel 6 with Lynne Bricke, Tamilee's Buns of steel 7 and Keli Roberts Ultimate step. I did get Cathe's all step but got rid of that one because I thought it was crazy!

Tamilee and Keli were what I rotated until I joined gyms and took step classes for several years.

I'd done some Firm "step", like the moves in Volume 6, but I feel like my first real step video was Gin Miller's Step Reebok the Video. It was a revelation to me that an instructor would properly cue a move, and add an arm gesture for traveling moves, instead of blurting out something insufficiently descriptive, leaving me half a beat behind and scrambling to catch up.

I was soooo proud when I mastered that video, and still pull it out occasionally. It's good when I've been slacking off and need a fun, easy to follow cardio workout that leaves me sweaty.

Fun thread! I've enjoyed reading how everyone started with step. I'm pretty sure I started with Cathe's Step Jam that I ordered from Collage, which I ordered from an ad in Shape Those were the days!

For me it was Buns of Steel Step 2000 with Tamilee Webb that came with the purple step. I bought this in 1994 and the workout and the step have stayed with me ever since. I still do the workout here and there. I still use the step too, it comes in handy when I want a shorter step instead of using the club step.

I also tried Kathy Smith's Great Buns and Thighs not long after that, good workout but unloaded it after a while, her Power Step workout is my favorite, without the power of course.

Nuture your mind with great thoughts.
To believe in the heroic makes heroes.

Your disposition will be suitable to
that which you most frequently think on; for the soul is, as it were,
tinged with the color and complexion of its own thoughts.

I started with Charlene Prickett's It Figures show in the 80s and eventually went on to the VHS tapes she put out after that. Aside from various Firm tapes, I don't think I did other step workouts.

Love hearing about all these step stories! Brings back great memories. I started taking step classes at the gym and before we could take them we had to take instruction classes to learn the steps. I am really glad they required the training classes because it gave me a solid base and I never feared learning harder choreography in vhs workouts.

I think my first at home step workouts were what I taped on TV from Charlene Prickettís show. My husband built me a step out of wood (which was a recommendation Charlene made on her show - she even had a homemade step on the show with the measurements painted on it). I used that step for a LONG time and then finally bought the green step with the pink and grey risers. I believe my first purchase of a step workout was probably a Charlene Prickett workout and I likely got Gin Millerís first Step Reebok workout shortly afterwards.

Linda Was it you that used to have your daughter strapped to you in a harness when you did step at the gym? Such a cute, cute story!
