This sensational workout, inspired by the movie, is designed to help improve muscle tone, flexibility, burn calories and so aid in losing weight; all done to an amazing soundtrack in a fun and energetic workout. Our Instructor & Choreographer has worked with Jamelia, Kylie and Beyonce, all of who have one thing in common, they have great looking bodies because they dance! Dance is the best way to loose weight because it is great fun and you don't feel like you are working out. We have devised this workout for those of you who want to loose weight, tone up get fit and have fun whilst doing it! I think we can all agree that dancers have the best bodies and that's what this workout aims to give you! We start with a full body warm-up to mobilise the joints and muscles in preparation for the full workout. We then move into the aerobic section of the DVD - the dance class; this is split into four 8-10 minute phases. Phase 1 - concerntrates on toning the inner and outer thigh muscles. Phase 2 - emphasis is on the shoulders and legs. Phase 3 - keeps your heart rate up with off the spot action for extra fat burning. Phase 4 - brings the body back down slowly with a mellow routine. We then move onto the toning section of the DVD, keeping it true dance fashion we start with some classic barre exercises (where you can use a chair)...ever wondered why dancers have such fabulous legs and bums well you'll find out here! Then onto the floor to strengthen and tone the abs, obliques, triceps, lower back and pecs. Incorporating a dance stretch to encourage your muscles and you to relax and avoid injury. We finish with a remobiliser to awaken the body and get you ready for your day/night! This DVD can be run as a full programme (70mins) or you can choose just one or two of the dance classes if you don't have time. In the extras the dance team freestyle to the classic track 'I Want To Live Forever' which can be a fun addition to any workout! Inspired but not endorsed by or in any way associated with the movie!

The music is quite good. Unlike a lot of hip hop videos, it isn't R&B or rap, but kind of an upbeat contemporary instrumental mix, which I kind of like. However, except for the "Freestyle"/performance section, it's not actually Fame music, which his a bit of a disappointment as the DVD is suppose to be "A FAME Workout"
The DVD has really nice "look and feel" to it, set in this traditional-looking dance studio with visually pleasing timber walls and chandeliers. The dancers are all really upbeat and spirited, which helps keep you motivated.
In terms of the actual routine, I would say this DVD is only for people who have some experience with dancing or are up for a good challenge. Unlike a some dance aerobics videos, like Ministry of Sound, you actually learn a complete full-on dance routine. However, I found the moves quite daunting at first, and I do quite a few of these dance inspired workout DVDs. The moves are quite complex and the guy teaches them in 3 to 4-move segments in full time, repeats it two more times, then moves on. You do get another chance to practice it as he repeats the routine from the top. I had to really watch him several times doing it to figure it out. However, that said once you get it, you really do get a workout here and have fun.
Overall, this is a really enjoyable workout DVD with motivating dancers, a nice routine and fun, catchy music. I guess I'm only giving it 4 stars because it's not really appropriate for all levels of experience and the music isn't really FAME music as advertised. That said, I would definitely recommend it as a solid dance workout.
Each dance routine is taught and repeated 4 times within the body of the music and at quite a fast pace - I prefer this as I feel I am working out while I learn, rather than wasting time going slowly to pick up steps. Then each segment is put together and repeated before moving on to the next part.
The barre is a little hard if you have a carpeted floor, your foot may drag. And the counting out loud for the abs routine makes it sound like St Trinians, but is actually useful as you don't have to keep looking at the screen to keep up.
It's a good combination of up tempo dance, ballet and stretch.
I feel sorry for the girls sitting round the edge of the dance studio, they look bored - I'm sure they would rather have joined in!
HOWEVER, I've found it beneficial to watch a segment through first without even attempting to follow, just to get an idea of what I should be doing. I took each dance class on it's own and learned the moves before moving on to the next. There are 4 in total and I've actually only done the first 2. But once you've learned the moves, you'll find the classes do push your heart rate up without making you feel as if you should collapse!
The barre and floor section is excellent. Again, pushing you far enough to achieve something but not so far you have to drop out and glare at the cheesy faced dancers grinning their way something gruelling.
Dance stretch and remobiliser are also excellent. I do this dvd somewhere between 2 and 4 times a week and I've yet to wake up the following morning with aching muscles!
So in all, I'd say a great dvd. Couldn't rate it too highly on account of lack of explanation and irritating dancers, but I have lost 4lbs in the last 2 weeks and I feel more toned and energetic. (And I haven't been starving myself either!). I'd say give it a go!
Definitely worthwhile, however you do need a bit of patience to master the steps. Remember it probably took the dancers in the dvd ages to learn the routine - so keep at it!
It is very similar in format to the Hip hop workouts which came out a few years ago, the instructor teaches you a move, goes over it about 4 times and then goes onto the next move.
Its broken down into about 4 routines, and at the end, they put it all together to the irene caras 'fame' tune.
The best part about this dvd though is the barre work and the push ups and sit ups.
Im really quite fit and exercise alot but 5 days after doing the whole of this dvd, my body is still aching due to the barre work section!
I would definately recommend this dvd.
