Jane Fonda's Step Aerobic and Abdominal Workout [Import]
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
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

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.
ROBIN FROM TEXAS THANKSSSS AMAZON FOR HAVING THIS TAPE!!!!
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.
