Christi Taylor's Totally Hot Cardio
|fun routine and music--but be careful on carpet|
|I have done a few other Christi Taylor routines, and I especially enjoy her music choices. I am choreographically challenged, so it always takes me awhile to get the moves, but I know I'm getting a workout while I learn. I work on carpet, and I would caution anyone else who does to follow the back row exercisers and avoid the hop-turns especially while still learning. - posted by snorkmaiden on 4/25/2013|
|There is no dread factor with this, it is just a whole lot f fun from beginning to end. The music is great classic rock and the choreography is Christi's at her very best. I always look forward to doing this and it is like a breath of fresh air compared to some of my other workouts. - posted by Christine on 12/12/2012|

|I'd give it 6 stars if I could|
|I bought this DVD to replace my old VHS version which I have just given to a friend in hopes of converting her. Anyway, this was the first Christi Taylor video I ever bought, several years ago, and it's still one of my top-3 favorite workouts. The music is great (okay, taste in music is subjective) and is one of the reasons I still do this workout at least once a month after all these years. The choreography is just plain fun, and interesting enough that it takes a very long time to get tired of. I remember the first time I nailed this one step (perfectly coordinated with the music, as always with Christi) - it felt like a religious experience. The cool-down song at the end of the aerobics is my favorite ever, and the whole thing just feels like a party. Some people don't like Christi's cuing, but I don't get it frankly, she's right on top of it all the time. Maybe they just get frustrated - you won't get all the steps the first (or fifth) time. If you like dancy, somewhat complicated choreography, and vocal music from the 60s and 70s, you really should get this video. - posted by Sara on 7/26/2012|
|My favorite exercise DVD|
|I am 56 years old and I do my exercises every other day, inside my home, and in front of the TV. I do both hi-lo and step aerobics. My favorite fitness instructor is Christi Taylor. I love her choice of music and her routine or choreography. It is fun and lively. If you like to incorporate dancing in your exercises then you will love her DVDs. Though you will get a pretty good exercise from her DVDs your legs or lungs or both will not feel like giving up. Here are my favorite exercise DVDs from Christi Taylor.
1.Totally Hot Cardio – my personal favorite among the three.
2.Fantastic 4 Workouts – best value for your money with 4 workouts (2 hi-lo and 2 step)
3.Totally Cool Step – my favorite Step Aerobics DVD.
These DVDs are for intermediate and advanced aerobics people. But if you have good stamina and enjoy dancing GO FOR IT.
I only recommend exercise DVDs which I normally use. The following are my criteria:
•It should have at least 40 minutes of cardio exercises excluding the warm-up, cooldown, and stretch. For both 1 and 3 you should do the Cardio Bonus to get the minimum 40 minute exercise.
•There should be at least 3 persons in the DVD doing the aerobics.
•Use of popular dance music.
•DVD cast show enthusiasm.
•Enjoy and look forward to exercising.
Both 1 and 3 have exercise tutorials called Move Master. I did not use it. Just went straight to the exercises and rewinding to master the steps. I mastered it on the 3rd day.
Christi likes to do spins or 360 degree turns. Even though I wear eyeglasses I do all of her spins. But for newcomers I suggest that you avoid exercising on the rug. Also, do the spins after you have mastered the choreography. This applies specially to spinning on the steps. - posted by Jimmy Suapengco on 6/15/2012|
|Love this workout|
|I had this video originally on VHS. I saw it on Collage on DVD and had to get it. I love this workout. I am drenched everytime I do it. I love the routine it's fun and fast paced. It might take some people some time to get the choreography, but Christy has great cuing and it's totally doable. I'm glad I got this workout again. - posted by Lita on 2/29/2012|
|Fun and sweaty!|
|I've had this DVD with the original white and red cover for some time but never reviewed it. I LOVE CHRISTI TAYLOR! She cues really well and is very original with fun moves to the music. This is not my favorite Christi (which is Totally Cool Step, the sister DVD). I prefer her step workouts, but you must practice this DVD to get it all. That's why it's not for beginners unless you don't mind not getting all the moves and want to progress. You will sweat and smile. There are lots of bonuses I use too, like the bonus warm up and cardio. The bonus abs is the same as for the Cool Step workout, so I'm taking off a star for the repeat. I love a fun way to sweat and this does the job. Put this in your collection if you want more Christi in your collection. Get her step workout first if you never tried her yet. - posted by Andrea405 on 11/2/2011|
|Don't Like the Soundtrack|
|First of all, let me say that I have two other videos of Christi's and I think she is a great instructor and choreographer. However, although I'm old enough to recognize most of the songs in the video, I just did not like them or find them motivating. The workout itself was fine although it was very similar to one I already have so I returned it. - posted by Sonya on 8/18/2011|
|Good workout but tricky moves|
|Good aerobic workout, but the moves get a little too complicated, especially for the home audience trying to follow along facing a TV. - posted by Sharon on 5/26/2011|
|This is the first time I have used a video for exercise. My gym cut back two sessions in a week so I went to the video. I bought 3 and this one is the best. - posted by Ted on 5/25/2011|
