"Finally! A series that pumps up the music and focuses on having fun and being yourself.
I have done plenty of other workouts that are much mroe intense and much more difficult than this one, but they can never be as rewarding as this workout is. At the end of Denise Austins' Ultimate Fat Burner, I am ready to go to bed and hide - I do not look forward to doing it again, even though it is a very well designed and effective interval training circuit. With this workout, however, I am energised and pumped and am itching to do the workout again - and for me, this is key.
Even though the workout is not difficult, I found myself having so much fun that I was willing to put more energy into it than I would in other workouts. This was because I responded to Tamilee's prompts of 'giving it all you've got', and 'letting loose'. Somehow she just managed to lure me out of being in a tight aerobics shell and break out into dance. I shall admit that there have been moments where I have been so into the groove of a particular step in a combination that I keep on doing it instead of moving on.
Tamilee is good at cueing, laid back and motivating without being girly, mushy or perky. In both of these DVDs, she does breaks out into song - more so in Rock Hard Assets than Motown Moves - this doesn't bother me too much, but some people have based their entire judgement of the workout based on her singing. For chrissake, once you've got the moves down, you can switch to the music only version if it bothers you that much. For me, the breaking out into song contributes to the laid-back-be-yourself-cut-loose-have-fun atmosphere.
The moves are not complicated. Tamilee cues very well and takes you through difficult moves at half time before performing the move at tempo. If you can do a mambo, toe-taps, a pony or a step-touch - then you can do either of these DVDs. There are a several bits of the workout which are high impact, and she doesn't tell you how you can modify them, so you just have to think of how to modify yourself. The Motown Moves DVD has more high impact segments than the Rock Hard Assets one, so I consider Motown to be easier.

Looks like fun, but those of us with 2 left feet can't follo

"I've watched both DVD's several times and it looks like so much fun that I want to join in, but my two left feet just can't seem to get with the program no matter how hard I try. Tamilee goes over the moves again and again, but I just can't seem to pick it up. This one just isn't for those of us who are severely choreography challenged. Guess I'll just have to keep marching in place and doing knee lifts with Leslie Sansone."
Just drown her out with your own singing ;o)

"I've only used each one (very beginner here) once, skipping the extra blast. Unfortunately, I'm having to return/replace due to Rock Hard being defective. I didn't have a problem with her short bursts of sing-a-long, but I felt she had a few lyrics wrong ;o) Either way, Tamilee is still my favorite!"
