"I bought this DVD set to see if there were any good workouts or elements of the workouts that I could use with a cheerleading team I was working with. I watched all five and tried to workout with most of them. :-) The girls in the videos seem to really know what they are doing and are very clear on proper position for any movement they teach you. The videos are fast paced - teaching you the movement and then jumping right in. They had some great technique workouts that can really help any cheerleader with getting height in their jumps and sharp and fast arm movements.
My favorite of the set was the Moves because it was the "funnest." She teaches you several different combinations that help you work on getting sharper and correct form. It also works on counting and hitting the move on the correct count. I also really liked the Stretch dvd as it works on your flexibility and is a little more relaxed then the other dvds.
The other three, Endurance, Jump, and Power were much more high energy and stronger "workouts". You could burn a lot of calories doing those three. They were all excellent workouts for what they were focusing on.
One thing that's cool about this set was the each dvd focuses on a certain area that you can work on, whether stretching and flexibility, building your endurance, sharper movements, etc. So, you can pop in whichever one you feel you need to most work on and you can vary the workouts so you don't get bored because you have a selection to choose from.
The only complaint I had, and it's fairly small, was that in the Jump dvd I would have liked more advice on getting proper position for some of the harder jumps. The focus was the easier jumps and increasing your height, which is important, but I would have liked a little more."
