Dancing with the Stars: Latin Cardio Dance
|This is a nice, light workout. I like the ten minute sections that can be added to other workouts. For a dance video, this is pretty easy to follow. The dancing is not too intense, but you still feel like you did something. The toning part is a little more strenuous than the dancing sections, but easy to follow along. - posted by Janine on 1/17/2014|
|As a big fan of DWTS I could find no faults with this video. I am not a dancer so some of the moves are a little challenging and frustrating but with perseverance I get most of it. Great Video. - posted by Juliana on 1/3/2012|
|I have never done a more boring workout in my over 50 years of working out and dancing. The title should be can any cast member be more bored. Unless you're a professional ballroom dancer, some of the steps are too hard to follow. There is no instruction, just copy these movements. The dancers look so bored that I felt sorry for them, very little workout potential except for the toning section. - posted by Jeanne on 1/2/2012|
|Latin Cardio Dance|
|Cheryl and Maksim are my favorite stars. I love it, so fun to exercise, very good muscle toning and cardio/aerobics program. - posted by Aina Kim on 2/17/2011|
|I love Latin dancing|
|This is a very good video for someone that has never taken Latin dance lessons before. The moves were very easy to follow. It's a fun workout. I usually combine this workout with another toning workout. - posted by Kirsten on 11/27/2010|
|AN OK workout.|
|I do watch DWTS and admire both of the instructor's dancing ability, but they could have done a better job of instructing. It was like they were both uncomfortable instructing in front of the camera. Kathy Smith taught many of the same dance moves in her Latin Rhythm and Moves workout and did a much better job of it. Still, once you get going this is kind of fun. I especially enjoyed the Mambo section. For people who hate complex choreography, this is perfect. And if the instructors really annoy you, you can always do the "music only" option. I also like that it's programmable. The time went by quickly; before I knew it, the workout was over. - posted by carole on 6/26/2010|
|"I Love It"|
|I have had this work-out for a little while and finally I got around to actually doing it.
I like it….No, I love it!!!!! . I like it so much that I immediately purchased the dance workout, and I intend to purchase the other two Dancing with the Stars workouts that will be available for purchase in December. I don’t watch the television program very much, so I was excited about this exercise program. At first some of the steps were hard to master. However, it gave me something to work forward to and now I’ve got it!
The first time as I was doing this workout, I thought about a friend of mine who was never really into exercising. She took up line-dancing classes. She lost 20 pounds in about 2 months. She looks so good and her skin makes her look 10 years younger. Well, we all know that line dancing is not strenuous. My friend said that in her classes, they stress the importance of just moving your joints around. I think it was the magnificent Gilad that said in one of his workouts something to the effect of - if you don’t movet, you “rust”.!!!!!
I am excited about any exercise that emphasizes the abs and the core. I am basically a thin person , but, the core is an area that could always use something extra.
This exercise does not have you pouring sweat, but, in this case I am not looking to do that. The toning section is particularly good.. I am still so amazed at how these instructors find different ways to work the body. That is why it is important to have a variety to go back and forth with.
The dancing just relaxes you and makes you feel good and beautiful ( even with curlers at 6 AM).
I used to get dizzy doing the turns in exercise. Now it is a piece of cake. I just wish that I could exercise in my high heels like the girls do on the video,
but, I will leave that to the professionals.
Well, I giving this 5 stars because it is helping me to reach my goals. - posted by Nancy on 10/22/2009|
|I tried to like this DVD but it was simply too slow and boring. The first Dancing W/ the Stars DVD is better. - posted by Nina on 4/20/2009|
|Terrific! I am sweating 10 minutes into it...|
|Low impact aerobic programs bore me after the first few times and I wanted to have fun burning calories. This DVD teaches basic steps and burns calories! I found it easier to follow after the first few attempts. I enjoyed the repetitive steps, giving me a chance to really learn them and memorize them. This is great for those who have sit down jobs and want to lose back and belly fat. I am very pleased with my purchase! - posted by Dee on 3/25/2009|
|I love the show, but this was the most boring workout ever. It is the only DVD I have ever returned. Max seems bored himself and does not motivate. This one made me want to take a nap. The other unusual part is that Max includes push ups and other moves in the cooldown/stretch that would be more appropriate for a toning section. I have over 100 exercise DVD's and have never seem a cooldown like this. I was being kind by giving one star! - posted by Linda on 10/10/2008|
