Instructional fitness programme set to a soundtrack of the year's biggest hits. There are five main sections to the workout, each presented by professional fitness instructors and featuring a dance choreography which viewers are encouraged to join in with. As well as a warm up and a warm down, the sections included are: 'Ease It In', 'Take It Higher', 'Rock It Out', 'Dance, Dance, Dance' and 'Feel the Burn'. Among the artists whose music provides the soundtrack to the workouts are McFly, Cheryl Cole, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Scherzinger, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
You will need to know basic dance because the routines are fast paced but you learn a lot of new moves and lose a lot of calories. I like that they all have different personalities so you can mirror the one most similiar to your own 'flavour'. Its great that they have girls and guys doing it so you can watch how girls can move to the masculine dance styles. The only criticism is that you can only move forward between sections of 3 songs in each rather than skip tracks. Also I bought this for the dancing so the mat exercises were wasted on me. Overall-groovy, fun, and imaginative.
I own a lot of workout dvds and I just love this one and I really wish they would come up with some new ones. The choreography is not that difficult to pick up for people that exercise regularly, but it gives you some challenge, is the 3rd time I done it and I didn't stop for a second. I think that is easier to follow than the put it up ministry of sound series but at the same time it gives you a really good cardio, conditioning and flexibility workout. For me it just has everything you need plus it is so fun to do, the moves are really fun and sexy and the songs are great.
I think that this is a very good fitness DVD, with lots of fun, good music and you can really feel yourselves working. It is more for people who can dance, and it doesn't always go through the moves before you do them but with practice and repeats of the DVD you are good to go!
