I purchased this DVD to add variety to my workouts. I run regularly on a treadmill and do yoga occasionally. I DO NOT dance and this was making me sweat like I had just ran. The first routine is Hip-Hop with Twitch and it's the only one I got through entirely because my legs were tired from the jumping. I like this DVD because it definitely adds the variety I wanted and a challenge to my exercise. I recommend it, especially if you're interested in learning a few dance moves. Me, and my lack of rhythm, are happy I bought this DVD.

I purchased both the SYTYCD DVD's and they are pretty good but not great. Maybe I am biast as I love Julianne Houghs's DVD but I wanted variety so I bought these two.
The warm ups are a little different, and all six of them take turns doing a portion of the warmups and cools downs. It was to much bouncing around from 1 person to the next. I can understand that they wanted all six of them to be one the DVD's equally but they should really have drawn a name from a hat or something and just had 1 person do each warm up or cool down.
While the routines themselves are good, you don't feel like you have had a full workout if you only have time to do a warm up, 1 routine and cool down as the warm ups are about 12 minutes, routines about 25 minutes and cool down is 6 minutes. I don't know alot of people that would have the time to do the whole 1 hour and 50 mintue DVD the whole way through every day.
It is still fun to learn different styles, I have always wanted to try hip hop and it is fun. So if you are looking for an easy to follow DVD this is it, but sometimes the pace it a little fast but if you can master Julianne's DVD you can get through these.

[ Great fitness DVD for beginners; short in length and beginners level in dancing]
[ Would have liked to know that there is only 3 short training; not for the ones that really want to push themselves]

HASH(0xa73877b0) out of 5 stars First impression-AMAZING!!!! July 26 2009
By lovehitzalot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I just received the So You Think You Can Dance Get Fit Cardio Funk and Tone & Groove dvds yesterday (I tried CF yesterday and T&G today), so my reviews will be based on my first impressions, and then I'll edit them again later regarding the long term results.

First thought-I LOVE these dvds! Because the routines were explained well and taught in a progression, I was able to pick up the choreography for each dance the first time through, though I felt all of the routines were definitely challenging and VERY effective as workouts! After just finishing the second dvd today; my muscles are sore, I'm sweating, and I feel fantastic (and like I worked really hard)! The dancers were all very energetic, encouraging, and none of them ever missed a beat/step on the routines. It was exciting to see all of these great personalities from the show (definitely 5 of my many favorites) choreographing, dancing, and having such a blast out there-and it's even more fun to dance along with them!

Getting down to business, the menu screen has a 'Play All' option which takes you through the warm-up, all 3 routines (with instructions), and the cool down. In the 'Workouts' section, you can choose between the 3 routines (with or without instructions) and the bonus workout that combines the three styles with some extra steps (also with our without instructions). The Warm-Up and Cool Down sections are taught by the whole group of dancers, switching off. They're the same combination of dance-infused stretches on both dvds and they've got a funky flavor going on the Warm-Up and more of a bluesy tone on the Cool Down. I found them to be fully effective in preparing me for the workouts and cooling me down afterward, as well as enjoyable ways to begin and end the session. For extra entertainment value, the dvd also includes interviews with the three dancers featured on the front cover, as well as with Nigel Lithgoe. The dancers' interviews include behind the scenes clips from their workout rehearsals, taping, and photo shoot, as well as them just goofing off with each other and having fun. I expect that all fans of the show would really enjoy these parts as much as I did. :) Anyway, I chose to 'Play All' and then perform the Bonus dance with instruction and my total workout time for each day was about 1 hour and 40 minutes! That will be reduced without the instructions, though I think it's always good to get the extra benefit of performing the moves slowly and isolating the muscles whenever there's time. Seriously, for only $11?-What a tremendous value for the money!

On this dvd:
-Twitch-Hip Hop: Oh yeah! This is an awesome little hip hop number! I thought he really did a good job of teaching basic popping for it as well! I found tremendous arm and leg benefit in this one. My thighs, in particular, were burning by the end of it.
-Katee-Jazz: This is a cute and sassy dance that includes arm and leg extensions, jumps, hip sways, and even her famous `awkward dance' with the elbows transformed into a standing, twisting, knee lifting, sit-up! This one is really good for your waist, abs, legs, hips, and backside and it's a ton of fun.
-Dmitry-ChaCha: Man, this one really worked me!! I thought Dmitry did a fabulous job of breaking down the movements and really demonstrating the correct technique in each of the steps. This one is really fast once the music starts, even at the slowest speed (especially those twists! Whoo!), and with no prior training in this area, I found it to be the most challenging (in a VERY good way, though)! Any fat left on my waistline and legs had better beware with this one!

The video clip at the top of the screen will give you a nice preview into how the steps are taught and the types of moves you'll be doing. I'm so excited to have added this fitness dvd into my collection and hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did! ***** Difficulty: Intermediate/Challenging (At least a little dance training recommended, if not required).

HASH(0xa6ef2654) out of 5 stars Fun workout while dancing! July 23 2009
By lunasera - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I also reviewed the other So you think you can dance get fit: Cardio Funk, and they are quite similar, so I'm posting the same review slightly modified for this version below. I will say that I liked Twitch's hip hop routine on this one a bit better then Lauren's on the other, and Dmitry's cha-cha felt the most like I was actually learning to move more like a dancer. If you were only going to get one I would say maybe get this one first, except I really like Travis's contemporary routine on Cardio Funk as well.
Especially while the show is airing, who doesn't want to feel like they can be part of So you think you can dance! Totally fun to dance with a bunch of dancers from past seasons, and get a great workout at the same time.

Three different styles of dance routines (hip hop, jazz, and cha-cha), you can pick one or do all three, and there are separate chapters for the instructions to learn the routines that you can skip and go straight to the workouts after you get them down. Learning the steps is nice and slow, and easy to follow or repeat if you get lost. Then in the workouts they start with doing the routine counting, and get faster, add music, until it's more like a performance at the end - just music no counting at full speed. There is also a bonus dance workout that mixes the styles together. The dancers on the video are Travis, Katee, Dmitry, Twitch, Lauren, and Courtney.

My only slight complaint is the music is a bit generic, so you aren't going to feel like you are telling any kind of story in the routine like from the show, but after all it is an exercise dvd, so this isn't that big of a deal. It would be cool if they came out with a couple that were focused more on just dance so you feel more like a real routine though. But for now I'm pretty happy they did this at all, and the other one Cardio Funk is great as well!

HASH(0xa6ef2678) out of 5 stars You'll Work Hard, it's Fun, but not too Complex! Aug. 17 2009
By Erin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Tone and Groove is exactly like the first dvd of this set, "Cardio Funk". Both are actual DANCE dvds that give you a serious workout. Anyone watching might go:- "Ok, that doesn't look hard." No dance looks hard, but omg try and do it. The warm-up in itself is a great workout, just that.

This dvd is so fun. I love the jazz section, and the hip-hop is so laid-back and fun and calm, you feel great, Twitch is a wonderful instructor; the Latin section of this dvd is really sexy and sauve.

I'm not kidding, this dvd will get you into serious shape. It may look simple, but try and do it? You'll be sweating. It's so much more fun than a treadmill. This dvd has you jumping up, dancing around, bending, stretching, and laughing.

It's so underrated. You honestly will not be disapointed you got it. It's expertly done and so much fun.

HASH(0xb341f9f0) out of 5 stars So You Thought It Couldn't Be Fun Working Out! Aug. 4 2009
By Janny B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
So You Think You Can Dance has been by far my favorite summer show for the past five seasons, and the two Dance Get Fit DVD's are the two greatest things to come out of it recently! Both DVD's are such an improvement over the regular tired old dance DVD's of contrived "hip-hop" moves and oldies music. For watchers of the show, the teachers and back dancers are beloved outstanding dancers from past seasons, whose energy and enthusiasm far exceeds that of regular fitness instructors. I rate this as intermediate level with some impact. Total beginners would be frustrated, as there is an assumption of knowing a few basic dance steps such as "pony", etc. As with the Cardo Funk DVD, I felt I got a good workout only by doing the entire workout, which was about 1 1/2 hours. But the time just FLEW by. Actually, this is a revision of my original review in which I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 because I considered it more of a lower impact cardio workout than a toning one. I changed my mind after doing it a few times, resulting in stiffness in my sides; I really felt it in my abs. I tried to re-rate my review to 5 stars, but wasn't able to. So I want to emphasize that these three workouts really do emphasize abs, butt and thighs. I attribute the ab stiffness to Dmitry's latin dance workout (..."and twist and twist and twist and twist..."). As it starts it seems so slow and easy, but wow, does it turn into a workout!

I consider it somewhat an interval workout. The slow intervals are during the teaching portions of each of the three dance sections, which are taught one-on-one with the individual dancer/instructor. Then some more dancers join in and the tempo increases, then music is added, and finally the whole crew is added and the music is at full tempo. One extraordinary thing you NEVER get in a fitness video is the amazing chance to watch the workout choreography you are doing, being performed and interpreted by a whole cast of professional dancers, seeing how it can be tweaked and made both more intense and more interesting.

This was particularly the case with Dmitry's cha-cha. Wow, when he lets loose with the music, he's doing the same choreography he just taught you, but he's flying! Also, Twitch's hip-hop was the REAL thing and so much fun! He explains what "popping" really is! And the jazz routine with Katee totally works your abs and is very sexy and fun.

In order to get the full workout, be sure to do the bonus workout too. To do this, initially click on Full Program at the Menu. After Dmitry's workout, it segues to the Cool Down. At that point, fast forward all the way and it will take you back to Main Menu. Click back on Workouts. In that section, click on the fourth option, bonus workout, then choose the option Instruction for bonus workout. With the instruction and dance, this adds an additional 10 minutes. The three instructors from the DVD pick some moves from their workouts and casually throw them together into a casual dance. Once this is done, you then have the option to return to Main Menu and can still do the Cool Down.

My only other complaint about the pair of the SYTYCD DVD's is that the choreography of the warm-ups and cool downs in both are identical. With the wonderful and original choreography in everything else, this was a bit of a disappointment. Again, on further reflection, pretty much all classes or instructors on fitness DVD's use basically the same moves for warm up and cool down. But don't let this stop you from buying both! They are both SO WORTH IT!

HASH(0xb2fe9264) out of 5 stars high intensity cardio July 5 2011
By cheerdanz - Published on Amazon.com

I'm constantly looking for high intensity dance dvds because as an ex-cheerleader I have to constantly change my routines or else I'll get bored and this dvd gave me that needed change in routine and at the same time high intensity cardio.
