Steaming Cardio is also very good, and Heidi is wonderful, but Kelsie (in my opinion) brought something different and special to this workout. Will probably do the original more often.

I was most worried about Strong Bear and Fast Cheetah. Was enormously pleased with SB but have not yet reconciled myself to the the loss of my beloved "ball play" on FC, so am not sure how I feel about that one yet... Hope you get them soon, Maryann. And enjoy!

I am somewhat disappointed in this version of CT. A lot of the upper body work has been cut from the original. It felt very lower body instead of a great total body like the original. Tamela is stunning as is the production, but I'll be using the original version I think.

That's kind of strange, considering it is supposed to cross-train with Floor Burn, and I assume that Floor Burn has more of a lower body emphasis...Or is that incorrect?

I thought it was wierd too. I haven't done floor burn, but the original was almost all lower body.

Even though the title is "Floor Burn", I think it means all exercises are done on the floor.....upper and lower body......vs. standing and moving around like most routines.

The original wasn't, but maybe the remake is more upper body?

Really a fun short workout, but I agree with some of the above comments: I really wish there was more upper body emphasis in these workouts!

That being said, this one flowed beautifully and Tamela did a fabulous job instructing. There were lots of good combinations that worked a couple parts at once, thereby saving precious time. I was actually surprised by how little cardio the dvd case lists this workout as having b/c it felt like we were doing quite a bit of fun cardio blasts.

One thing that has impressed me about all of the Fitprimes and Kickbutts is the emphasis throughout on posture and balance. Despite years of working out, my balance is just not that good since no workouts ever really focus on that. I can actually feel it improving with this series.

What I like about Tamela is how much energy she puts into each move. She makes me want to workout harder.

I like CrunchTime because it is a shorter workout, yet it still encompasses all the disciplines that have come to make up these "fusion" style workouts. In Crunch Time, I particularly like the cardio segments and the flying wing dings or whatever they were called.

I finally got to this one today. It is indeed a pretty intense workout in a short time and still fun. Tamela is excellent.

Honestly, I could never get into Susan's version.

I only have Floor Burn and Push Pull left to try out for the first times!
