A great step workout that will have beginner to intermediate exercisers elevating their heart rates and working up a sweat. You don't even have to use a step if you don't want to, but you will get better cardio with a step. You can work up to using heavier free weights and the higher impact moves can be modified to be lower impact.

Even though I was certified as an aerobic instrutor this past year, I still found this dvd challenging. I do not have the step, which some exercises were done on, but could modify and still get a workout. Of course, I must add, the gym closed and so I haven't been working out as much as before, but still work out regularly and was pleased to add to my collection of workout dvds.

UFB Workout=High Impact Aerobic conditioning
David Seguin | San Diego, CA United States | 07/12/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is the 1st DVD I bought from Denise Austin who has a show I watch regularly on Lifetime TV. The Ultimate Fat Burner workout is frankly not a workout for everyone. It's of my opinion that you need to be in pretty decent shape already to do this. Here's why.Denise incorporates a lot of material into this workout. Not only are you do aerobics but you are also doing weight training (3 lb weights are recommended on the DVD!), step work (I don't own a step so this is a problem!), and some yoga and kickboxing moves. She does a lot and a lot of it is very VERY high impact. However, she does introduce each aerobic move with 3 levels so you can stick to lower levels if you need to. Its a fun workout but challenging and by 1/2 way through I am usually pretty tired. Lots of jumping and jaring on some moves, this is not low impact aerobics folks so for those with bad joint problems may want to look elsewhere.Overall not a bad DVD but does require a lot of additional equipment and I think would be best served for those who have already done other step work and interval training. Lets hope Artisan will release some more aerobic DVDs from Denise as this is the only one available and it's not for everyone!"
Burn that butter!

"I truly enjoyed this workout. It is not a compilation of other DVDs like Kathy Smith, it has all original material. I was also on a weight loss plateau (after losing 35 lbs) before this purchase, and thanks to Denise I have finally started to see results on the scale and tape measure again. There are various sections in this DVD including kickboxing, weights, and step aerobics. My roommate started laughing when she heard Denise Austin yelling "burn that butter" during a squat section, but her energy really motivates me. The variations and innovative moves in the routines make this DVD easy to follow without getting bored. I am an intermediate exerciser and I began sweating after about 15 minutes. The arm (weights) section is a little weak (when compared to The Firm) , but my legs and thighs were humming the next day. Overall I feel that this DVD is a good cardio and lower body workout with a little yoga thrown in at the end."

"Ok, harsh title. I generally love Denise Austin's workouts, but until I came across this DVD it seemed pretty hopeless that I'd find a good Denise cardio-centric workout. Anyway, let's get down to the critique. Denise Austin, if you're not familiar with her, is known to be an extremely perky workout instructor, so if you don't mind energetic and sometimes lame cheers of encouragement, then Denise Austin will work fine for you.

More specifically to this DVD: This is a circuit interval training workout, where you alternate every few minutes between cardio and weight lifting. For this workout, you'll need a step bench and some weights. Denise recommends 3 lb weights, but I say if you're more advanced, or if you've been working out for a while, you can use whatever you feel comfortable with. I started out with 5 lbs but now, after a few months of using this DVD I keep a few different weights handy, 8 - 15 lbs, and use appropriately. That's one of the advantages of this workout, in that if it gets too easy, there are ways to adjust it w/ little inconvenience. In addition to changing your weights, you can also increase the height of your step, do the cardio workouts with ankle or wrist weights or bands (I use Billy bands - they're individual bands for each foot/hand with loopholes at the feet. they work great for the kickboxing segments of this dvd!).

In terms of difficulty: I've been working out regularly for 3 or 4 years now, and I found this to be relatively challenging when I first tried this DVD. Not challenging in the sense that it was hard to keep up with or had difficult moves, but challenging in that the cardio kept my heart rate up, and I felt my muscles getting stronger with the weight lifting. Denise is pretty easy to follow, although her queuing isn't the best. She sometimes says "last one!" when it really isn't, for example. But that's easy to overlook, and with a few goes at it, you fall into step with Denise and her background exercisers.

On the whole, this is one of Denise's better workouts, and definitely one of the better sources of cardio fitness out there, and definitely worth the money. Use it 3-4 times a week and I think you'll see a difference. :)"
