"After a rocky start this is now my favorite cardio video and I have tried too many to count. Please don't feel discouraged by the jive in the first segment. That is by far the trickiest to get down but not impossible. The choreography is AMAZING. The steps SEEM simple but they make you feel like a professional dancer. I love that they are challenging but that the steps repeat in a pattern so a regular person can follow along. I did the video twice before adding my own music with the video on mute. This makes the video SO great and different than others - the steps stay the same but the music can change as often as you like. This difference is key. I can't dance to music that is boring so being able to have simple steps that repeat is really a revelation to me. I also appreciate that there are not too many traveling steps...for those of us that live in small apartments. Lisa won me over with her personality that is so warm and friendly. There is a great group of pro dancers who put there own spin on the steps. I did this video with my teenage niece and she loved it too (we both were chanting "single, single, double on the same side" Thanks for making these great workouts. I am a convert and can't wait until more come out!!!"

"I loved Lisa on "Dancing with the Stars" and really thought this would be a great DVD. I was wrong. It is very hard to follow. Her cues were off and too often the camera is focused on her face instead of on her feet or full body. I'm not trying to learn how to smile. I'm trying to learn the workout. Great idea, bad video. I would love for you to try it again and focus on the student not the star.
For anyone that loves dancing- this video is an A plus!

"My favorite extension of Dancing with the Stars! Lisa Rinna is just as great as she was on the show- she really pushed me to get my cardio up and her cute outfits only made me want to work it harder! Not much of a fitness fiend, but learning key steps from my favorite dances is enough motivation. For anyone that loves dancing- this video is an A plus!"
