There is very little high impact - what this is is very modifiable. I wouldn't worry about it.

Thank you, Firm Believer. It sounds like my credit card is going to get a little more use! Karen

Liked this workout. Very, very similar to FP (and was happy to see that they left the lunge jumps intact!). Heidi was excellent, as always, but she just doesn't move like Kelsie!

Talking Re: KickButt Steamin' Cardio Reviews

I simply loved this video. It kept my heart rate up and kept my muscles engaged without using a lot of weights. The mini hand stands helped my upper body. I definitely can use this video on my light weight days. The cardio is pretty intense and I felt like I really worked out after this one. I was dripping with sweat. I have the original with Kelsie but I love doing it with Heidi also. This one is a keeper. Very effective!

I just did Steamin' Cardio this morning and I LOVED it! I've really got nothing more to add to anyone else's comments - it's an awesome workout and Heidi is wonderful and the time just flew by. I was having technical difficulties with my DVD player at the beginning of the workout (I was playing it from my computer, and other windows kept popping up and making the workout skip around), so my heart rate stats are a little off because I had to keep stopping and restarting the workout. But here they are anyway:

Time: 38 minutes
kcal / %fat: 251 / 40%
Max HR% / Avg HR% : 87% / 76%
Time in Moderate Zone (70-80%): 19:14

Other factors to consider - I'm getting over a cold, so my HR is kind of screwy from that as well.

I just loved this workout so much though - I can't wait to do it again!

Thumbs up Re: KickButt Steamin' Cardio Reviews

Excellent workout! I couldn't get past the glitches of the orginal so I sold it and don't remember it well. I loved Kelsie but Heidi does a great job (as usual ). Heidi is definitely one of my favs from her days of Firm Cardio

The yoga stretches or poses go by fast - but being that I'm not a big fan of yoga that's great for me. I would suggest a dedicated stretch or yoga tape on rest days - oops - I forgot about Flex Posture, I haven't previewed it yet so it may be that dedicated workout I was thinking of

Overall great job done!

I cant believe I am saying this..but this video is my new fave. I love Kelsie and am begging for her in a new WHFN video..but the new Steamin Cardio video is excellent. I did this yesterday and am a HUGE fan.

The glitches are gone, the set is beautiful and the workout has changed but only to be improved.

Heidi is Heidi--fantastic.

PLEASE Anna...make more videos like this one.. and more with Kelsie and Heidi!

I agree with everyone...I didn't expect to like this revised Steamin' Cardio but I did. In fact, I liked it more. Can Heidi BE any more adorable? This workout is so fun you hardly notice the fire in your thighs and glutes.

And where is Miss Kelsie? I'd LOVE to see her lead a workout again. Does anybody know what she's up to these days?

BTW, I've been doing these workouts for two weeks, and I felt sooo strong tonight. That makes me VERY happy.
