So back when I was in high school my Mom bought me a Paula Abdul dance workout video. I was never a huge Paula Abdul fan but I believe her cassette tape was one of the first that I owned, that and Wilson Philips. Why my Mother bought me the video I really don’t know. Probably because I really enjoyed working out and dancing (and probably at the time there was nothing else besides Denise Austin videos). Anyways I popped it in the VHS (remember those) and got started.
I immediately fell in love with it. It was fun, easy to pick up and had catchy music. By easy to pick up, I mean the steps are simple however, Paula doesn’t explain most of them it’s kind of a monkey see monkey do thing. And the workout is not hard for the most part. You will break a slight sweat but you will not feel like you are at The Biggest Loser Ranch. So maybe save this video for an off day or easy day.
Fact: I confess that in the years that I did this workout I have done the cooldown only once. But for some reason I seem to remember the cooldown being to a slowed down version of the YMCA but I could be wrong on that.
Fact: I now have “Promise of a New Day” stuck in my head.
Fact: It is featured in the video.
Fact: IMDB rated this video as a 7.5/10
Fact: Paula produced another dance workout video
Fact: I have not tried it….
