"I enjoy this workout and it definitely gets my heartrate going! I don't really enjoy the latin section though. Honestly, it didn't challenge me as much physically as the other sections did and, admittedly I am not the world's most coordinated person, but I couldn't really follow it. If you were a better dancer I think that you may enjoy it but for me it was just frustrating. The way the video is set up is that the ab section is after the cool down. I just do the abs either before my workout or right before the cooldown, because by the time I do the cooldown I just want to be done. I started exercising again with this video and the cooldown/stretching is very short but when I do it I am never uncomfortably sore the next day so it is very worth it. I have a really weak upper body so I felt the workout in my arms and shoulders but for more of a challenge you could add some light hand weights and really increase the intensity level. The instructor is upbeat and positive without being over the top, and I really like how she will tell you what is coming up next since it makes it go by so much faster for me. Also, she does 60 second power bursts at the end of the sections that will really get your heart rate up. Overall, it is a solid workout that you could easily divide into smaller segments if you were pressed for time and is enjoyable to do."

"I LOVE this DVD!!! It is so tough to find good cardio these days but this DVD is exactly what I've been looking for. The DVD consists of a warm up, and 6 cardio segments at 5 minutes each, (2 latin groove, 2 cardio kickbox, 2 sweatshop)plus a cool down and ab segment. Each cardio segment also includes a one minute Power Burst to get your heart rate up even more. I usually do either the latin groove or cardio kickbox and the sweatshop segment, along with the abs. I am drenched by the time I'm done and my heart is racing. Lizbeth gives EXCELLENT cues. I highly recomend this to anyone looking for a fun cardio workout."

"I thought this workout would be very high intensity and I thought I would be challanged. I was also expecting a great varity of moves. I work out everyday, and I hardly broke a sweat. If you are an advanced exerciser, you will be disappointed. The only time I was challanged was during the "Power" section, which is for a minute after every section (there are three (3) sections). This is a good DVD if you're looking for a low impact workout, that is not too intense. If you want a "kick-butt" workout, this is not it.
The instructor, Lizbeth Garcia, is nice enough, and I recognized several of the background people from other Crunch DVD's. This DVD does not measure up to the standard of Crunch.
Not quite what I was expecting

"From the description, I thought the workout would be a bit more high intensity. It's a good 30 minute routine, which I also thought was going to be longer. If you're looking for something a little lower impact, not too intense, this is good choice."
