Full Backcover Description
As a leading innovator in the home exercise video industry, in 1988 Cathe founded Step N Motion Videos, and in 1989 created one of the first “step” aerobic videos. Today, her fitness empire includes all types of workouts – featuring an enormous collection of step aerobic videos – and is one of the largest privately-owned fitness video libraries in the world.
In the making of this Greatest Hits DVD, there were so many Cathe videos to consider that it was impossible to fit all of the segments into just one compilation. It was decided to just focus on Cathe’s step videos in this collection – where it all began!
This Greatest Hits Volume 1 – Step compilation video features nearly 1.5 hours of video, including the regular workout as well as bonus footage that is woven into several premixes. This walk down memory lane is not only a lot of fun, but a great workout, too. It includes some very memorable songs such as “Pina Colada,” “Kung Fu Fighting,” “A Little Less Conversation,” “Abracadabra,” and of course “Buttercup.” Footage was taken from Imax 2, Cardio & Weights, Body Max 2, Step, Jump & Pump, Athletic Step, Drill Max and a short segment from XTrain’s Super Cuts. Several premixes, including a bonus step circuit workout, are featured on this DVD.
Cathe Friedrich's Greatest Hits Vol. 1 - Step

Intermediate: Active in sports, dance or any regular exercise (2 to 3 times per week).
Advanced: Very active in sports or consistently work out four or more times per week.
Aerobics Impact: Higher
Lower Impact: Both feet never leave the ground at the same time. This minimizes stress on your knees.
Higher Impact: Includes movements like jumps, hops and skips. Very high-impact is called plyometrics.
Mixed Impact: This alternates or combines the above styles.
Aerobics Choreography: Complex
Basic: The easiest to follow. It ranges from simple walking-style marches to sports and athletic movements.

Certified instructor description:
Your favorite exercises — and favorite music — from five of Cathe's 2002-2009 videos. You'll be blasting fat to a non-stop mix of Cathe's signature moves, from pendulums and ricochets to plyo-jumps and "around-the-worlds." But that's not all. You also get dance-inspired mambos and cha chas plus athletic-style jacks and sumo squats (with lots of tempo and directional changes). The songs are also great; they include "Abracadabra," "Kung Fu Fighting," "Jessie's Girl" and "If You Like Piña Coladas." DVD includes 31 minutes of "bonus" segments (not part of the main workout). ©2013, from programs originally released in 2002-2009 — "Step, Jump & Pump and Step Blast," "Body Max 2," "Drill Max," "Imax 2 plus Cardio & Weights" and "Athletic Step."
