"Another review broke down the sections of the DVD very well, so I won't dwell on that.
The workout is hard at first, you will stumble through the moves, and you won't be able to keep up. This is a good thing! It makes the workout more of a challenge and something that I will keep coming back to. Just don't feel down or frustrated if you don't get it at first.
You can tell Jamie's background is dance and not aerobics or fitness, but that's not a bad thing either. It is really helpful if you know how to pickup on the 8 counts.
There is also a Rock Your Body book available that has the same routine that's on the DVD in picutres. This was really helpful the first few times. The book has lots of other great info too, and I would suggest you pick it up"
A Lot of Fun

"Finally a Jamie King dance workout I don't have to try and follow along on the Nike website! I liked this workout a lot, and I usually find most cardio hip-hop DVDs lame. It's "organised" like a dance class, with phrases learned at half-time then tempo, a dress rehearsal where you put it all together and then a performance where you run the whole thing through a few times. The choreography is cool, and once you know it you can put a lot more energy into it and have a fun workout. Sometimes they counted off the beat, but it's easy to ignore that if you can count. This isn't high-intensity like a Les Mills dance class, but for a day where you want a steady-state burn, this is a fun workout to try. I hope there'll be more of these down the line, maybe getting progressively harder."
It's like a real dance class

"After reading some of the 1 and 2-star reviews I needed to respond. See. . . when you go to a dance class for the first time, no one expects you to pick up on the routine right away. You have to go a bunch of times before the "lightbulb" goes off and you suddenly catch onto the moves. That's how this video is. Sometimes you have to repeat the chapter a few times (isn't that the amazing thing about using a DVD????) in order to get the steps right. It's not like a typical work out DVD where you can go straight through (unless you are a trained dancer) and it's also not as BORING!!!"
