Fun, Calorie-burning Routine

"This DVD is great fun. You won't get the routine down the first time, but don't worry, you'll get it after a few times and that's what keeps it from getting boring. Kari has a great style, she doesn't make you feel like you're the ugly duckling in a pond of models, if you know what I mean. Her cueing could be better in some spots, but overall all it's good. Especially once you get used to the routine. The music is generic upbeat music, so if you don't like exercising to stuff you hear on the radio, you don't have to worry about that.
The DVD is a 55 minute all step workout (55 minutes includes the warm up and cool down). It has a menu at the front, so if you only want to do a 25 or 30 minute routine, just pick the menu option you want. The only equipment necessary is an aerobic step.
I am very happy with this DVD, it has quickly become one of my favorites."
Hot steps is fun steps!

"I love Kari Anderson, and this DVD is great. I just tried the routine for the first time today. I loved it. Did I get it all down? Not at all. But I did the whole 55 minutes and got a great workout. Was a falling all over the step? Not at all. Did I get most of it? Yup. Was it a mental and physical challange? Yup. At the end, I thought, "I can't wait to try that one again." Kari is always fun and positive. I like the choice of music; it doesn't overpower the workout.
My background in stepping: I started in 1992 (wow, am I that old?). I took the last 5 years off from stepping (or any exercise) to have 3 babies, and I started back to exercising 5 weeks ago. I am 15-20 pounds overweight. I am not a dancer. I've never done step classes in a gym - only vidoes at home. I'd consider myself intermediate. This DVD is not for beginners to step. It has helped me that I have done Gin Miller, Kathy Smith, and Keli Roberts, as well as other Kari Anderson step videos, so I am familiar with different kinds of moves, counting, cueing, and terminology.
This work-out is intended to be like dancing on the step. You spin up and down and face your back to the TV, etc. If you don't like that style of step, don't get this DVD.
It has a 4 nice options:
doing all 55 minutes
doing a shortened version - parts 1 & 2 only
doign a shortened version - parts 3 & 4 only
doing the quickie - parts 1-4 without "learning the routine first"
(all options include warm-up, cool down and strecth)
I had a blast!"
