Don't do it!,
This review is from: Strictly Come Dancing - The Workout with Kelly Brook and Flavia Cacace [DVD] (DVD)
I have a quite a collection of dance-aerobic dvds because I find basic plain aerobics really boring, and I do enjoy them, but this one was a massive mistake.
Firstly Kelly Brook should not have been let near this, she is awful! I'm sure she was a lovely dancer when she was on Strictly (I somehow managed to miss every performance of hers, so I don't really know) but that doens't mean that she knows how to present or instruct in dance. She either can't or has simply decided to not explain, making it almost impossible to follow her when you're learning the routine. I'm sure it'll be much easier once I've learnt the routine, but I can't see me sticking the dvd long enough for that to happen.
It's difficult to imagine what the thought process behind this was, can't dance, can't explain, I know, lets have lots of shots of her in tight clothes flashing us a big smile. No one will be able to follow what she's doing, but she'll look great. I don't get it, I love my dance routines, but that means having someone explaining the steps and telling you in advance what the next step will be, so you're already thinking about where you're facing to go into that but no, Kelly will start the step then a couple of seconds later, tell you what step you're doing, normally something not very useful like 'now the step to the left', the other fifty percent of the time, she'll just flash you a toothy grin and assume that you're psychically going to guess what the next step it. Yes, eventually you learn the routines and don't need someone to tell you what to do, but in the early instances you need to be instructed in what you're doing and she can't do that. It's a toss up between how this is going to end for my copy of the dvd, ebay or just throw it out of the window, preferably under the tyres of a lorry.
Don't waste your money, got for one of Lilia's dvds, or Strictly Come Dancersize, or one of Camilla's, or the Bollywood Workout, basically, go for anything other than this. I saw another reviewer mention that she was considering writing to the bbc to complain, I can see her point. This is just bad!
