I am looking into buying 2 new workout videos with my Christmas money and these are the ones I've decided on. Has anyone ever used them? They both have good reviews and I like both Crunch and Jennifer Galardi so I'm hoping they'll be good:

Dance off the Inches: Hip Hop Party


Crunch: Cardio Dance Blast

Any thoughts or experience?

I have never tried those ones. I don't usually do cardio videos though because I have bad coordination problems.

I looked at the first one on amazon.. one reviewer gave these cons on the video.. but there were more positive reviews then negatives... have to run.. dh is calling.

- Some of the instructors comments are annoying: "Show me what you got!" "Smooth like honey!" "You guys are getting hot!" "Oxygen is free, guys!" "Like you're taking off your shirt!"
- A couple of movements may be difficult for people with bad knees, particularly the butterfly. Overall, though, I think this workout should be doable for most people.
- Like some of the other reviewers said, there are a couple of moves that are difficult on carpet, including the slides. For these, I just accept the fact that I will not be able to slide as smoothly as she does since I'm on carpet.
- The step guide would have been better if it had gone a little slower and included more practice of the steps. The box boasts that the step guide is it's only ten minutes (which is wrong, it's 15.5 minutes long), but I think it would actually be better if it were longer because that would mean that she was taking the time to teach you the moves thoroughly. Think about it - she has to teach you 10 different moves. Even at 20 minutes, that would mean she was only spending 2 minutes on each move. She does a good job with the time she has, starting with the legs and then adding the arms, but for some of the moves she only puts it all together and does it at tempo once or twice, so I found myself skipping back a few times before I got them right. I would have preferred if she repeated the moves a few more times so that I would have time to mimic her and then make any adjustments necessary to get the moves down completely.
