Product Description

Amazon.ca

This multilevel class is safe for and accessible to beginners, and just right for intermediates. Three of Fonda's able and motivating instructors teach the 45-minute step class. Half the room does lower-intensity moves; the other uses higher steps and higher-intensity techniques. The teaching technique is excellent: a pattern is taught on the floor before taking it up on the step. One participant does the routines totally without the step to guide beginners or others who don't feel comfortable using the step. The patterns never get very complex, but they are varied enough to keep you interested and energized, and you can adjust your step height to make the workout harder if you wish. The instructors cue seamlessly. Fonda herself teaches the 10-minute abdominal segment, with enough variations of the standard crunch to keep your abs contracting and your mind engaged. --Joan Price

I've owned this video for almost ten years, and in that time I've gone through periods where I was doing this workout every day (for two years) and periods where I switched to other forms of exercise (other videos, walking, Tae-Bo, yoga). Although the other forms of exercise were more interesting -- appealing to the secret MTV viewer in me -- the real proof of this tape's success is the fact that I keep coming back to it.
When I first bought this tape, I weighed around 165 pounds. After doing this tape every day for a year, eating whatever I wanted (no dieting at all), I was down to 125 pounds. If I had altered my diet in addition to doing this tape, I would obviously have lost the weight more quickly. I won't kid you -- there were many days in that one-year period when the last thing I wanted to hear was the sound of these instructors' voices, but I stuck with it and saw the results I was looking for. The length is perfect -- just under 45 minutes not counting the abdominal workout, which I never used -- so I could easily fit it in before or after work. If you're looking for something simple and basic that produces results -- and if you don't care about music or "hip" photography -- this tape will work for you.

I bought my aeorbic step about a month ago. This was the first step video I tried. I chose this workout video because I wanted to try step aeorbics, and Jane Fonda is the leader in workout videos.
This workout is fun and effective! I consider myself to be in pretty good shape and this workout makes me sweat buckets! The step portion of the video lasts for 45 minutes. Jane is not in the step class, but it feels as if she's there. The 45 minutes of stepping goes by really fast. The moves are fairly simple to learn. I'm very uncoordinated, so it did take me about 5 or 6 times of doing this video to catch on to the choreography. However, if you are the least bit coordinated, it shouldn't take you as long as it did me to catch on.
The workout starts with a five-minute warmup. Then the stepping is taught by three instructors who take turns leading: Laurel, Jeannie, and Mark. I like all three instructors, although I must say that I think Mark could have been a little better with his cueing during one particularly difficult (for me) sequence. Otherwise, I think they all did a fine job. After the step aerobics, Jeannie leads a cool down.
Jane is alone while she leads the 10-minute abdominal class at the end of the tape. These ab exercises are quite challenging without being extremely difficult. I love the way Jane teaches. She's very encouraging without being phony.
I enjoy this tape much more that the Step Reebok video that came with my step! At least the people in Jane's video look as if they're having fun and want to be there. I think this video would be good for beginners through advanced, and especially good for intermediates. If you are advanced, you'll probably have to raise your step up to the highest level, and then it would be perfect.

This review may help others like me in choosing what may be the best lifetime exercise solution to stay fit. When this video came out in the early 1990's, my wife was looking for a way to raise her energy level by getting back in shape and staying there. So she bought the kit (video and step) and got started. After seeing many of her sessions, I also gave it a try and got as hooked as she was on this particular video for several reasons. The crew and the music score are entertaining, timeless, very professional, enthusiastic, personable, and the music is admittedly outstanding and will cater to all tastes. You don't tire of it and coming back to it is like visiting old friends. The exercises are progressive, intelligently conceived, effective, adjustable to suit all folks, and flexible enough to challenge all levels of fitness as anyone can work up a good sweat with the program. And still be happy when in a very gradual way you are brought to the conclusion of each session. After years of this you don't get bored because it's not dated and you can make the sessions as demanding as your current fitness and shape level permits. You can actually expect to sustain your energy level and your shape for a whole lifetime with this aerobic session if you ideally combine it with a moderate weight-lifting program on alternate days as we recently started doing. The aerobics themselves are outstanding enough that they warrant being discovered. The truth of the matter is that we have now worn out the tape and have bought a new copy in 2002 because we could not find it on DVD where it now should belong as a classic.
