Movie Reviews

Caribbean Workout Aerobics
Pratima | USA | 04/14/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I picked this DVD up at a local Ross store for $6.99. It came with the Kickboxing DVD. For the price, it was a great buy. Each DVD has four 20 minute workouts. The Aerobics DVD has two low impact and two high impact workouts. They include athletic (rather than dancy) moves that are easy to learn. There is some repetition and overlap (the workouts have some similar moves) but it doesn't get tiresome. The moves can be easily modified to make them higher or lower impact.

The music is club-ish, I've heard it in Karen Voight and CIA workouts. The scenery is gorgeous, and Shelly has a natural, easy manner, as do her background exercisers. This DVD would be good for someone looking for short workouts, and would be considered intermediate, though I think you could make it easier or harder if you wanted. There are cuts where the commercials would be, but when they "return," the exercisers are still doing the same moves so the cuts aren't too bad.

My only complaint is that this DVD isn't chaptered, so if you decide to do two of the workouts, you end up doing two warm-ups and cool downs. You can fast-forward through them though."

"I've been following the Caribbean Workout on television for years, and it has quickly become my favourite workout. I was so excited when it finally came out on DVD. It's easy to follow, provides an excellent workout and is pleasant to watch because of its beautiful setting in Barbados. I recommend this workout to people at any level, beginning or advanced, since the workouts can be adapted to your personal level."
Fun, high energy aerobic routines....

"This DVD is one of my best purchases of 2005 by far, for a small price you get 4-20 minute aerobic routines, two low impact and two hi-low impact led by Shelly McDonald. Shelly is joined by Joanna and Carolyn, all three of them are in great shape and seem to be having a great time. The music is great, and the scenery spectacular. The videos are shot at various locations in Barbados, some on the beach or poolside at the Sugar Hill Resort.

The routines themselves are easy to follow, the moves are basic but lots of fun, plus the hi-lo routines are easily modifiable to low impact which is nice. Lots of the same moves are seen in all the routines, which might bother some people but I didn't seem to mind this at all. I especially like the short length of the routines, I often do cardio following my strength training and find that these are great as add-ons, or you can do a couple of them for a longer workout. Shelly misses a couple cues here and there but overall I really like her as an instructor, she and her friends provide a fun, relaxed atmosphere, which makes it even more fun for me.

These workouts were originally filmed for Fit TV, therefore there are brief commercial breaks where the screen goes black, but it's for only a few seconds. As another reviewer said, each workout has it's own warmup and cooldown, plus some of the routines have brief toning segments at the end.

Overall this is a great buy, it is one of the DVD's in my collection that gets the most use. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys simple but fun aerobic routines.
It's a good thing my knees are in good shape!

"I was not familiar with the C.A. or Shelly before I bought this. I've only been through the first low impact portion twice and I was going to wait a bit longer to write this review but I don't think this is going to get any better. I'm accustomed to variety and I don't get it here. What I DO get is a lot of knee-bending. 20 some minutes of knee bending. I don't understand what people are so excited about. This isn't fun. Obviously, I'm in the minority and because of that, I'll do the remainder of the DVD but geesh, I don't think my opinion is going to change and I'm not sure how much more my knees can take. I don't even breathe heavy.. what's the point?"
