"This DVD suprised me. It's actually quite good and of intermediate challenge.
The 30 minute cardio/dance section was really fun to do. The first part had more of a latin flair and the second part was more hip-hop oriented. It was also easy to modify the moves to make them higher impact for a more intense workout.
The 10 minute standing Pilates segment worked the upper body and core with weights. The time just flew by.
There is also a 10 minute floor Pilates routine targeting the abs and legs. Strap on wrist and ankle weights and it becomes nicely challenging. Denise is also very pleasant throughout, just the right amount of friendliness. My only gripe is the music. Had they used better and more motivating music in the dance portion, this would have been a 5-star workout."
A Nice Workout

"There are 3 segments: 30 minutes of easy-to-follow dance combinations with plenty of waist and hip action. There is no warm-up, but it didn't seem necessary. There's a nice stretch at the end.
10 min of standing Pilates with light weights. If you have Denise's Power Yoga workout, you'll recognize some of the work from the 2nd segment of that DVD.
10 min of floor Pilates. Classic floor Pilates. You start with the usual ab work, including the 100, but Denise gives you variations to keep it interesting. Also a few things from the side-kick series, along with the ever fun Can-Can.
A pleasant, effective workout with Denise's patented "girlfriend" factor, and better cueing than usual. (Yes, the music could've been better.)"

"I love Denise Austin but this workout is not so great. I think if I were a dancer I would have gotten the hang of it and enjoyed it. But since I'm not, I found the instructions to be very poor. The moves are not explained and it was hard for me to follow along."
