This dvd makes a nice change from more regular exercises. It does work abs in a different way, also legs, as many exercises done in a bent knee position. It even works arms as they are raised a large portion of the time. So for a switch up, this could be a nice diversion, and scenery is good, cuing well done, and even when the dog enters the scene, rather cute. Shall keep for a while.

This is an effective cardio workout concentrating heavily on hip and leg movements. Try your best to keep up!

I loved this DVD, so much I bought more copies to share here. The 3 fitness instructors on the video move in such a sensual but simple way that you want to be them, not hate them like you might with some other fitness instructors. The moves are easy enough to follow and you get a workout. Very low impact, but you will use your hips. This will get your heart rate up enough to consider it a cardio workout. But you wont have an attack.

Great authentic Hula in workout form

"This also comes in great 5.1 surround sound.
I loved her since her first DVDs "Hula Workout" though those used cutsy 60s music & added 60s american dance moves but still have a lot of authetic hula dancing.
These "Island Girl" hula workouts are more authentic. Just like her other ones, you get a great workout, your abs burn, your hips, legs get a nice workout. It's all authentic dance moves with some added quick squats, etc. added in so you barely notice it for adding toning. The authentic drum Hawaiian music is beautiful & does keep you stimulted too keep going just like a dance/rock beat would.
I had no trouble following & learning the steps, there are plenty of dance DVDs that I have had trouble with, but she breaks everything down well & shows it slowly several times before speeding it up. She even cues YOUR left & right, not hers.
There's a trailer for her "Hula Workout" DVDs & another authentic Hula workout like this called "Island Girl: Hula Abs & Buns" at collagevideo.com"

"I now own four of Kili's Island Girl DVDs and love them. She gives you a very thorough workout, and the better you get, the more of a workout you're getting. This one really makes me sweat, and seems to be more of a cardio than the Tahitian Cardio, although that routine is excellent too.
If you've never done hula or Tahitian dance before, this video is hard on your thighs, but is very enjoyable. After doing this, I definitely feel it in my buns, more so than my abs, but I always feel like I got a well-balanced workout.
Doing these Island Girl routines will help you lose weight and get in shape, just stick with it. I've been doing them for a couple of months now and can see and feel the difference. I've slimmed down and lost about 12 pounds. I feel much stronger and healthier, and even sexier - my hips are moving in ways I didn't think possible :)
I highly recommend this workout"
We're loving it

"I ordered this dvd for two reasons...one I need to lose some weight and have fond memories of my trips to Hawaii two because I thought it would be fun to do with my 7 yr daughter who loves the hula dance scene from Lilo and Stitch, loves to dance and we could do it together. We love the dance and the music in it and I'm very happy I ordered and wish I would have thought of it sooner."
