Movie Reviews

Great for beginners with signature Petra style
Tchik182 | Gainesville, FL | 03/23/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As my title says, this DVD is great for beginners because the choreography is not difficult, and, as always, Petra Kolber is an inspiration.

The DVD has 4 cardio segments:
1. 10 minute sport routine
2. 10 minute cardio dance routine
3. 20 minute sport routine
4. 20 minute cardio dance routine
5. 5 minute stretching segment.

The sport routines consists of hamstring curls, step touches, and other easy moves. The dance routines have more fun choreography. The different length segments are great if you're short on time or you are a beginning excerciser and don't have the stamina for longer workout routines.

Miscellaneous information about the DVD:
1. The music is catchy and up beat.
2. The set is not the best...but who works out for the set?
3. One annoying thing is that there is no option to play all of the segments. If you want to play all 5 segments, you have to go to the menu and click on every segment.

About the instructor:
Petra Kolber is full of energy and is encouraging without being annoying. I'm an intermediate to advanced excerciser and I bought this DVD strictly because I'm a huge fan of Petra Kolber. If you're an intermediate to advanced excercisor, I would recommend Petra's 3-2-1 Dance, as you might get a tad bored with the Cardio for Beginners DVD.
Great for real beginners

"This dvd, cardio for beginners is wonderful. I have no idea of how to do cardio. For one, I have no rythem what so ever but Petra makes is so easy, the only drawback I have is she doesn't show the steps first before doing them. You can pick it up really easy though. I love this dvd, have been doing it every day since I purchesed it three weeks ago. I recommend it to the extreme beginner."
Really Fun and gets the heart pumping

"I recently got this video and really like it! I'm really not a beginner, but thought this video would be a good one for my library and give me something different to we get tired of doing the same routines over and over again. The steps are easy and varies from my other DVD's...and I love the energy...gets me going too!"
Good, but not Great
Delighted | Newport News, VA USA | 05/21/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I had recorded a session off Fit TV with Petra Kolber and really loved her energy and enthusiasm, and the session I recorded had GREAT music. This DVD is good, but is truly for beginners. If you're just starting to exercise, you will probably like this a lot because she tells you everything she's going to do before she does it, which makes it really easy to follow from the get-go. I've been exercising to walk or dance DVD's for years and it was just a little too simple for me, with very routine steps that I've done a million times, plus the music was just so-so. I still love Petra though!"
