Great, but could be more intense :-)

"Jen is a favourite instructor of mine. Her routines are fun and energetic and this is the same. It's an intermediate workout with basic choreography and lowish impact. It does get your heart rate up a bit and you do sweat a little, but it isn't quite challenging enough for me.
It's a combination of classic aerobics and fun latin moves. You learn a basic aerobic move, and then she adds the latin flare to it. I personally have only done this twice but never felt sore or tired as a result of it. I'd use this on a day where I can't be bothered doing much else but still want to do something. It's certainly going to burn off some calories, but advanced exercisers won't be overly impressed with this. Jennifer is motivating and personable like usual, but I hope her next workout will be a little harder and more challenging."
Have a blast, and get a great workout!!!!

"OMGosh--Everytime Jennifer Galardi comes out with a new DVD, I always think "Now this one is definitely my favorite!" But it happened again! You can't help but have an absolute blast doing this dance! The moves are unique, incredibly fun, and boy, do I work up a sweat. Remember when you do dance, the sweat comes when you really accent your moves. So only I learned it, there was no problem getting a great intermediate workout!"
Aerobic/latin mix for non-dancers

"I've owned a handful of Latin dance fitness DVDs, and this is a nice break from those. The footwork is less complex, it incorporates more arm and upper body moves than most Latin dance DVDs, and it's all low-impact (so it may not be intense enough for intermediate exercisers). There aren't as much traditional Latin dance moves in this as in others - there are more aerobic dance moves. That said, the aerobic components are refreshingly original, without the usual tired, boring morass of chasses, grapevines, and knee lifts. (There's even a quick little move where you pretend to play conga drums.)
You won't need any equipment, but you'll need enough front and back floor space to be able to walk about 4 big (or 8 small steps), and enough space on the sides to take 2 big steps in each direction.
The warm-up and cooldown blend smoothly into the workout itself, so on the downside, there's no menu other than "Play" or "Resume." And if you're looking to learn traditional Latin dance steps you can take to your cousin's wedding, you'll be disappointed.
Overall, it's sexy, playful and fun, and easy to follow with plenty of cuing."
Just barely latin

"I ordered this DVD because I love the Crunch Cardio Salsa with Giselle Roque de Escobar. Unfortunately this DVD pales in comparison. I like that it is fast-paced and will cause you to work up a sweat, but there is very little latin styling or latin music involved. If you are a die hard latin workout fan like me, get the Crunch Cardio Salso instead, or Lisa Nunziella's 5-day latin dance system. Both are much better than this one."
