Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

This step workout is broken into three segments for different levels of stamina and complexity. You can do just level 1 (12 minutes) or continue through level 2, for 22 minutes, or through level 3, for 32 minutes. Within each segment, Keli Roberts's assistants demonstrate different intensities, so you can work at your own pace as you build endurance. Roberts instructs well, with plenty of safety and alignment tips, and she repeats the combinations enough for you to get them. But the camera has an annoying habit of changing angles when she first introduces a new pattern, which is just when you want to keep watching her feet. Advanced exercisers will add some propulsion moves, such as jumping onto the step. After the step workout and stretch, you get 8 minutes of killer abdominals, and finally a calming, guided relaxation. Roberts is a celebrity trainer, and you can see why from the professional way she instructs this video--and from the to-die-for body that must motivate her clients! --Joan Price

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Step Workout Video March 4 2005
By A Customer
I got this video with my step so it is the first one I ever tried. But, now that I have tried other step workouts, I can definitely say that this is the best one yet. It is easy to learn, after a few tries, you can follow along, sometimes without even looking at the TV. It does not really matter whether she says left or right. I actually think it is easier to follow because she doesn't. Actually, if you watch carefully, she usually raises the hand of the side she is going to start stepping with. The easiest thing is to mirror her moves and you follow easily, especially for turn steps. The workout is adaptable for different levels and really gets your heart pumping. It is a very complete workout and the abs section is great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Keli! Jan. 28 2004
By A Customer
I prefer the step workout on this tape to any aerobics I've done in college classes. I've been doing this routine three times a week for about seven months now and have lost all the weight I gained in my last pregnancy plus about fifteen pounds. Her moves can be a little hard to catch on to but if you do the routine a few times you should get them.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this tape!!! Jan. 20 2004
By A Customer
This is one of the best step tapes I own. It is a great workout and really gets your heart pumping. Combo's are easy to follow. She goes through about 10 different combo's so it never gets boring! I do step aerobics in my house 5-6 nights a week and this is deninately one of the best out there! I highly reccomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars great video!!! Jan. 6 2004
By A Customer
I am so pleased that I bought this tape!!! All of the other vids have a lot of complicated, dancy moves that I don't want to do when I am working out!!! I just don't like having to concentrate that hard while trying to work up a sweat. I don't have 2 left feet but I'm no dancer either!! Also, there is no unecessary jumping which I really like because these knees have to last me a lifetime. I am an advanced exerciser so my only problem the first time I did this video was that I only had one riser on the step. I'll have to use 2 next time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners!! Nov. 9 2003
By A Customer
I just tried this video for the first time today. It is 50 minutes long; the first 6 minutes are for warm up, then up until 40 minutes there is the workout - 3 levels - and then two minute cool down and then about 8 minute of abs (quite good ab workout) then a few minutes of the end with overal stretch/cool down (didn't do this part).
From my initial viewing, I like this video. It's very energetic and many of the moves are seen in other videos - which makes it easier. Even though its an old video it didn't feel too dated and the instructor is cool - not annoying like many.
My only problem with it is that she doesn't give decent instructions, especially for moves coming up and which foot to start with and the camera pans right away to those behind her so you can't figure it out for yourself until a few reps have passed. Its very choreographed so dance/step experience will help.
If you're a beginner, or someone who just wants a decent aerobic workout, try Step Reebok: The Video (1992) which has really good instructions. I got that video free when I bought my reebok step and it really is great.
Though keep in mind, with any video there's always going to be a learning curve so no matter what you buy, you're always going to be confused little at first - but keep with it, it does get easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't mean to buy this tape, but i'm glad i did! Sept. 18 2003
By A Customer
I am an avid exerciser (especially cardio/arobics), so when i had read several reviews not recommending this tape, i decided to use my amazon.com gift certificate to buy Keli Robert's Total Body Circuit Training Workout and her Abs and More tape. Yada-yada-yada, I selected the wrong combonation of tapes and got the Ultimate Step Workout tape and the Circuit Traning Workout tape. This morning, I just did the Ultimate step tape and I LOVED IT! The steps definitely need improvement on my part (i did it without first watching it because as a dancer I figured i could catch on, but i was a little less than right!) but i can really see myself doing this tape at least once a week (i have to rotate it with her other amazing workouts, Cherfitness 1, and the Circuit Training tape). Some people were concerned that this wasn't great for beginners, but if you watch it first and do only what you can and pay attention to the ones modifying it, beginners can do it too! Anyone can benifit from this tape, especially from the abs work, it's a real workout, but i still can't wait to buy the Abs and More tape!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Step Workout June 17 2003
This is a great step workout. It is one of the first I bought of Keli Roberts and I still use it a lot. I would not recommend doing the entire video if you are beginner, but it would be something to work for. Get it, you will like it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Effective & REDUNDANT April 29 2003
I really like Keli Roberts as an instuctor. Her body is a testament to what a great workout regime can accomplish. Her accent is bothesome for maybe the first five minutes - tops. The cardio is peak in this workout. The instruction is fine. The reason for only three stars is it just too monotonous. After one run through I really was bored. Again, the workout is strong but it just isn't that interesting. If you want a choroegraph that is direct and dry this is it. Keli's Circuit Training tape is so much more fun and everybit effective.
