Movie Reviews

Don't waste your money!

"My original review disappeared... here we go again!
The dvd has a 14 min 'how to step' segment then a 40 min step workout. The 40 min segment is not programmable, so you can't repeat/skip sections.
I bought both Vol.3 and Vol. 4 and find that although the workout gets you sweating, it has the SAME arm movements thru the entire workout (although Alan does say you can invent your own patterns). There are too many participants and they are all over the place and not keeping up with Alan. Alan himself hardly ever leads the class, he is always hopping off the step and running around the room, the camera angles are terrible (you can even see the 2nd camera person in many shots) and they focus on the faces of the participants and not their feet or the step so it is difficult to follow.
An amateurish, back-yard production dvd with a premium price tag."

"What is this?!?! I couldn't even finish this horrible DVD. The camera sometimes focuses on people's faces and you can't see what to do with your feet. Although, all he really had you doing was stepping up and down on the step. He doesn't know how to put together a fitness routine and the other people in the video don't seem to know what to do either. I liked the instructor's energy, but I wanted a workout DVD... not this junk. Don't buy!"
Premium price, budget workout

"The GOOD points:
This dvd is NOT region encoded so will play on any player (I confirmed this with M2-K). It has a 14 min 'how to step' section then a 40 min workout. The workout does make you sweat so it is effective but...
The BAD points:
The dvd is not programmable ie. it is a block 40 min workout, you can't skip/repeat sections. The camera work/angles are very amateurish, too many people in the room, participants use the same arm movements thru entire workout (although Alan does say to invent your own) and Alan is annoying in the way he constantly stops leading the class and runs around the room.
For the price I expected a professional workout and was disappointed - it is a budget production and workout at best."
Worse video I've tried

"I usually research feedback on videos before buying them but was in a store unexpectedly and saw this and took a chance. I own _dozens_ of workout videos and never have I ever seen such a worthless workout. If I was willing to spend the gas and drive the hour back to the store I would do so and toss this DVD into their trash can. I prefer a workout that's a well thought out routine, with exercisers behind the instructor who have the ability to follow the routine. I swear, I wonder if this Alan Harris is some farce being pulled on consumers. I'm stunned any reputable production company would put this quality of product on the market. As working RN and mother my time is precious. I've used fitness videos to get in shape at home over the years, and there are many many better instructors out there worthy of people's time and efforts. My favorite instructors include Cathe Friedrich, Gin Miller, older Firm videos, Gilad, and Jari Love."
