Product Description

Amazon.ca

Paula Abdul's fans will really have fun with this 45-minute, high-energy dance workout. Even the warm-up is energetic and jazzy. Abdul teaches two dance routines. She introduces a 16-count pattern slowed down, then speeds it up until you're up to tempo, adding on until you've got a routine. Don't expect teaching expertise from Abdul--she cues the moves, but never explains how to do what she's demonstrating. Just watch and follow. You may need to pause this video a lot at first to learn the moves--she doesn't repeat the slowed-down moves enough to catch them--but after you get them, it becomes pure fun. She is assisted by two of her tour dancers and a crowded class of what she calls "ordinary people," though they're mostly young, good-looking, and very fit. The production is colorful and flashy. The constantly changing camera angles are distracting and sometimes annoying, because they hinder you from watching the feet to learn the moves. You'll enjoy the playful cool-down to Village People's "YMCA," led by the males in the class. An abdominal segment and stretches finish the workout. Coordination and rhythm required. --Joan Price

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun alternative to the mundane March 3 2013
By Joanne
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an enjoyable routine. The steps are basic but the speed keeps it challenging.
Well suited to someone with a sense of rhythm... perhaps too advanced for those who
lack confidence in dance.

Lovin' it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Blast From Start to Finish! June 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I always liked Paula Abdul but this tape made me love her! It is just a great, fun dance workout that leaves me covered in sweat! I really smile while I am doing the routines and although it takes time to get them right, if you are persistent it will be a piece of cake. Really fun! You must try this tape!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for advanced users April 20 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This would probably be a great workout for beginners and intermediates. If you are advanced like me though it's just too easy. The dance steps are fun to do, but I just don't break a sweat or get my heartrate up at all

4.0 out of 5 stars What a Workout! April 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I've been working out to Paula Abdul's Get Up and Dance! video for over three years now. I never get bored with the steps and the routine has yet to become too easy. It still gets my heart rate up and is still providing me with toned muscles. I must admit, the music is out-dated and the clothes make me wince, but when it comes down to it, I'm looking forward to another three years of this tape. You really will see results! It may take a little while for you to master all the dance steps, but once you do you really get into it, and even start adding your own little bit of style to the routine. Good luck!

4.0 out of 5 stars fun effective workout, gotta get the hang of it March 20 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I was so excited to get this video and have really enjoyed adding it to my cycle of videos. Paula has energy and a fun attitude that rubs off and gets you moving. My complaints: I was hoping that the workout would actually be put to her music, only the warm-up and cool-down are done with Paula music otherwise it's just energized aerobics score; one has to watch a few times to get the steps down, the camera man was a better music video shooter then an aerobics cameraman; He focuses on her face and the girl in the window more than the footwork which is tricky. But on the up side the footwork doesn't get boring after doing it over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging, intense and 90's tack... March 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Smacks a little of 80's, occasionally somewhat m.c hammer, but I think that has more to do with paula's dress sense than with the dance routines. Intense, requiring patient practice, it's a must-video if you want to add springy limberness and good-coordination to your fitness goals. I used to do a lot of Jane Fonda's Lean Routine (she puts together programs like no other), which is a little dancy, equally intense but easier to follow with better build up to dancy aerobic routines. That experience helped me get into Paula Abdul's workout without too much difficulty.
Three separate three-step dance routines that are combined at the end into a single 9-step routine, followed by a short outta-the-blue ordinary-chaps' dance performed by some YMCA guys; if you cannot follow paula, you can definitely follow these guys. Then you have a cool down section that also includes abwork.
Bottomline, if you are looking for a sweaty pop dance routine, get Abdul. If you want merely intense dancy aerobics, get Jane Fonda's Lean routine, but you gotta not mind her sparkly 80's fashion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good and effective workout, but not as fun... March 4 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Alright, I LOVE to dance especially street hip-hop, salsa, and merengue but I didn't feel the good vibe from this DVD. It felt kind of like military, and too technical. I mean, the girl can dance, and you will sweat from doing the moves, but I don't think it's as fun as some of the other dance tapes /DVD's that I have ordered. If you want to have a really good time, easily catch on to the moves, but effectively sweat a storm by the end of the tape, get "The Grind Workout Hip-Hop Aerobics". I just bought another tape just recently, because the one I had is worn out! This is a great tape, and trust me you will have fun!!
