A dance workout that burns off the calories but is fun to do!
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
I bought this Dance Mix Workout as a video a few years ago and used it often, though not necessarily regularly - I go through phases with exercising! Sadly, just before Christmas, the video tape got tangled up in the player and would no longer play properly, so I was very happy to find that the workout was still available on DVD.
It's not the most challenging of workouts but that can be a good thing. I've bought other dance exercise DVDs and the dancers go through the routines so quickly that they're very difficult to follow. I become disheartened and give up on them. However, Angela and her trainer Niki build up the different dance routines gradually so that you have some chance of getting the hang of them. My grown-up daughter and I often do the workout together and have great fun leaping about the living room. Although we've both gone through the routines many times, there's still something heart-warming about this workout, and the abs section at the end is the best set of abs exercises either of us have come across so far!
My only complaint is that I don't think the trainer has timed the routines very well. I get the impression that she's come to the end of her routine and yet the music is still playing, so she fills in the time by repeating the last bit over and over again!
Overall though, a very good, fun, workout!
Angela Griffin dancemix
This dvd is incredible, i cant wait to exercise now. After first session i was sweating like crazy but happy too.
The dance routines are quite easy to follow and are repeated over and over so they become so familiar that on the second play you know most already.
Angela is so sweet and honest on dvd that you cant help but like her.
I have done this 3 times for a week and have noticed my abs changing already.
If you dont like boring exercise or are not a great dancer this is the dvd for you, as long as you are moving about you are burning calories so who cares plus you are dancing at home in private so who cares how you look as long as you are losing weight.
would reccomend this dvd to all

A brilliant dance work out, don't need to be a dancer!
I've only just received this DVD and already I've done it three times. It is a brilliant work out and my god does your stomach muscles know about it the next day (see last section), but it is brilliantly done. It is broken down into different section so you don't get bored doing the same thing for an hour. The dances are explained step by step so you don't need to be a pro. They really are fun - I found myself thinking about the steps at work the next day I enjoyed it that much - and concentrating learning the steps means the time flies.
There is an R'n'B warm up, a Pop, Urban and Salsa section and then a cool down and tone-up bit. I particularly like the Urban and Salsa sections and the last section is brutal on the abs, so it must work!!!
My only worry about this DVD was that the trainer Angela Griffin works with is a little on the perky side voice wise and I thought this might annoy me. I'm doing the DVD at hom because I don't want to face gym bunny types, so I don't want one on my telly annoying me. But, my fears were unfounded and I'm growing to rather like her. She reminds you about posture, holding your belly in and breathing properly and explains everthing very well, without going too fast or expecting you to be able to do everything straight away.
Definitely worth investing in!!!
I love this workout. The dances are fun to do and the dance teacher Nicky is really good. One of the things i love the most about it is that when they give a direction they demonstrate it the opposite way so that you can follow it as a mirror image which i think makes it so much easier.
THe dances build up gradually with each move added on but there is constant movement and you know you've doen a work out each time ou run the dvd. It's fantastic, and on the strength of it i went out and bought the second one too!
