After failing at some bellydancing instructional videos that I thought would be great core body workouts, I am back with a review of Prevention Fitness Systems – Dance Yourself Thin.
I liked Marie Forleo in Crunch Cardio Dance Blast (links to my review), but this time she almost lost me with the “aye” she added to end of her counts. However, the music is not painful and with time I think I can turn down the sound and crank up my own music.
The one thing I like about her videos is she presents the moves in half-time, then up to speed, does them a few times and then adds on. I know other workouts are designed like this, but for some reason these moves are easier for me to remember and execute than any of the step aerobics combos I have tried from videos or in group fitness classes.
The street-clothes-wearing girl from Cardio Dance Blast is back and in cargo pants so if you are one who prefers that to sweats, you can do this video!
It is a 42-minute video with the following:
5-minute warm up
15-minute afro-latin dance
15-minute reggae-funk dance
There is no strength training component to this workout.
Also, I do not have a dance background and have no clue if these are really moves people would do in public, but it seems to serve well as a workout. It is another great home workout for those who do not have much floor space, like to dance about, do not want to drive to a gym for group fitness or change into over-priced workout clothes and want a fun workout that ranges from 25-40 minutes.
If you have workout video reviews on your blog or if you have a favorite workout video you think I should try, leave me a comment!
