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

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.

I read the previous reviews of this DVD and was confident that it was going to be too difficult when I bought it...But for $12.99, I couldn't resist. Day One found me tripping over my own feet..But, today (day two)I had all the steps down and now I can feel free to "play" tomorrow and make the steps my own (and I am NOT a dancer) I experienced a high energy cardio workout (and that energy stays with you the entire day). In the end, there's a nice cool down and a killer abdominal workout. I can't wait to do it again tomorrow...It's SO nice to not have to hear "Feel the burn!" by a toothpick who lost you at the warm up and keeps telling you "You're doing great!" When you know you're not until you finally sit down, watch HER do it while you eat. It was just nice to learn how to dance, burn fat, and release tension, while having fun and who better to teach someone how to dance than Paula Abdul. She's welcome in my living room any day. Don't judge this workout by your first day...you WILL get it and if you like to dance you WILL enjoy it.

When I first got this video, I tried to follow along but before too long I mainly stood there staring at the TV thinking "you've got to be kidding me". It was about a week or so before I even played it to the end and then I thought that tacking on a long section of crunches was sadistic. The frequent reminders from Paula Abdul, her dancers and her recruited people exercising in the background to "not give up!" and "pause the tape if you have to!" were actually more intimidating than encouraging, and I thought that they moved way too fast through everything. I lost the remote to my VHS long ago and I was constantly hovering near the rewind button.
However, despite my first misgivings, I kept plugging away and it wasn't really all that long before I had the moves down and was exercising right along with them. Then it was suddenly nice that the tape was fast paced, because it means that its still interesting without a ton of really slow instruction. The tape is hard to pick up at first, but the dance steps are really fun. Its worth the initial confusion and disorder to get it all figured out.

While I do not admit to many people that I actually own a Paula Abdul workout video, I feel the need to share my experience with you. I purchased the VHS back in 2000 and hated it. I spent a week fumbling around my living room like a buffoon attempting to do these moves. I stuck with it and I encourage you to do the same.
I began doing this video twice a week. I ate the same, exercised the same, and did everything else the same. Within a few months I went from 154 lbs to 138 lbs and I have stayed there since (disregarding a few fluctuations around the holidays). Sure I am not Twiggy, but I look and feel great.
The video is broken down into three segments, each consisting of three dance moves. At the end you put the nine moves together for a great workout. The first segment (3 moves) is fairly easy, but they get progressively harder as the video plays on. In the first few weeks (if you are anything like me) you will never think you can get it down, but I encourage you to stick with it. Once you get the moves down, the video is a lot of fun! It is fast paced - this is bad at first when you learn the moves, but it is great after you know the moves as the video becomes fun!

This is a very fun dance workout-- the moves were a little difficult at first (I have minimal dance experience), but I just rewound the tape until I got it. After 3 workouts, I was groovin' right along with her! I recommend this for anyone who *hates* working out and just wants to work up a sweat without realizing they're exercising too. No, it doesn't target specific areas of the body (arms, thighs, etc.), but that's not the point-- this isn't a "sculpting" video and you can't end up looking like a supermodel relying on just this video. This is DANCING! It's fun and gets your heart rate up-- that's what Paula says the workout is for.
If you truly have two left feet, it might be a little too difficult for you. If you're trying to learn to dance like Paula, that's not going to happen either (she's not teaching routines she uses or anything). But if you need to sweat, like to dance, and want to smile and laugh (Paula really is cute), then this is the workout for you!
