Talking "Just Right-Cardio" with Anna Benson

I just got the new Anna Benson cardio Just right workout. It is about 30 minutes, a short warm up, 20 minutes of cardio, and a short floor work(abs) and final stretch. Anna puts lots of stretches in the workout.
It is the old fitprime set, the one with the mirror behind her. She is wearing a white tank top and long black pants. She is encouraging and upbeat. she does some cardio then has you "catch your breath" for about 4 beats by raising your arms up over your head- then back to the cardio.
the cardio is very simple, marches, rocking horse. It is a good pace- like a lesie fast walk. She does a short round of squats and plies-very short .
I loved it, and it was perfect for me coming back from an injury. I look for a good 30 minutes of cardio for a warmup before barre workouts nad this was great for that purpose.
I am a little worried that the back of the dvd is purple.
kind of bittersweet, I am a huge Benson fan and love her as an instructor- I use Flex posture in my regular rotations."Are your toes up?It is best if they are"love her voice
great for beginners, seniors, easy days, or as a good cardio warmup.

Welcome Saundra....

This cardio is similiar to a beginner or recovery from illness workout or as an advanced, I-want-to-workout-but-not-really-relaxing-cardio workout.

Annette did you know that it would be a DVDr? Are the Firm's going to be DVD's or DVDr's?
