I guess it's no shocker that I, loving Ibiza and DVD workouts, would want this DVD from Cream. I was so excited and looking forward to good music, great workout and beautiful views. But as soon as I saw the preview I started to worry.. the moves were not quite as fun as I hoped and the instructor was just hyperactive and stressing to watch.
But I still ordered the DVD..
The workout is shot at a beautiful location overviewing the magical Es Vedra mountain in Ibiza. I love it! The instructor is accompanied by four girls, all beautiful and well-trained. So far so good. The music is quite cool, popular and classic club music tracks, as expected from Cream.
But then there's the workout. It starts with a warm-up, then a section with fat-burning aerobic, a dance section, a kick-boxing section and cool down. There's extensive stretching and bending in the warm-up and cool down. I kind of liked that part, in most DVD-workouts this part is short and brief. In this DVD you reaally get a good stretch!
The warm-up is more of a intro to the moves you will see later on in the dance section. The fat-burning section is okay, but it's not hard enough! I mean I do break into a sweat but there are more effective fitness DVDs on the market. The kick-boxing part is again, okay, but not hard enough.
The dance section is what I looked forward to the most, disappointing. I'm sure the instructor is a good dancer, but he is no good instructor! His rythm is out of tune with the music and suddenly he's doing new moves with no instructions, it's just really hard to keep up. I have no trouble with other fitness DVDs (and I have them all!). I know I will learn the moves if I keep using the DVD, but the instructor is just annoying and I can't even understand what he's saying. So, if you're new to fitness DVDs, buy Ministry of Sound Pump It Up instead!
