Fun but Cuing is Lousy
Laura J. Michaels | 11/06/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This workout is a lot of fun if you like dance-style fitness DVD's. The music gets you going and although it doesn't look like hard work you can definitely get your heart rate up if you put 100% into it. My BIG complaint about it, however, is that the cuing, if you can call it that, is absolutely the worst I've ever experienced on a DVD. She does a voice-over which is fine except she tells you what to do after the onstage talent has already started doing it, rarely tells you how many counts you will actually be doing, and she gets the count wrong more than once anyway. If you want and/or need strong cuing I would say pass on this one. However, if you pick things up easily by just watching then go for it. The moves aren't hard to master and a DVD like this can help you avoid boredom in your usual fitness routine."
5 STARS FOR KIMBERLY MIGUEL MULLEN!!

"A while back, I was shopping around for gifts for my girlfriend's birthday. She was tired of jogging as her sole means of exercise and the constant pounding of the pavement was hurting her knees and back. I found this video in one of her catalogs in the mail, ordered it, and since I gave it to her months ago, it hasn't left the DVD player! She says it's one of the best gifts I've ever given her and, because it's improved our love life, I'd have to say I agree! Not being a guy who normally watches exercise videos, I am unashamed to say that I've even participated with her as she gets her workout in our home. Kimberly Miguel Mullen's energy and enthusiasm is too infectious to watch without trying to do it yourself. In fact, I just ordered a copy for my mother, as she keeps hearing about it and wants to try! It's great for anyone, at any level, who's looking to feel better about their physical condition and may not have tons of time to devote to commuting to the gym or can't go for a run every day due to weather. Convenient, effective, and engaging--buy it for yourself and/or your loved ones!! Many kudos and thanks to Kimberly!!"

"This is a fantastic video. I am 67 and although I can't do this at the leve that Kimberly does butI manage to muck about. I love Brazilian music and drums and I am extremely pleased with this video. I feel jazzed after doing it. I can't say enough good things about it. It will get you into shape.
Fun add-on for intermediate - advanced exercisers

"I like this workout as an add-on or warm up. The music and setting are great. The moves are authentic and fun. The dances look great, and I enjoy myself whenever I do it. However, the cuing is not good. The cuing is provided via a taped voiceover, which is not in step with the choreography. Therefore, it is often behind the actual workout. After completing the workout a few times you figure out where you should be, but the poor cuing can be frustrating and confusing.
The only other problem I have is that I wished the workouts were longer. Each segment is only about 12 minutes so they are over just as you really start warming up. I usually do the first two segments - Macuele and Samba Reggae together just to break a good sweat. I hope Kimberly releases a longer workout DVD for each of these dance styles. I only did the Capoeira workout once, but it is nice as well. It is not as intense or difficult to follow as other Capoeira routines. However, it could be longer as well."
