I think the first 12 minutes of this would be adaptable to a water aerobic workout.

Good video, especially for lunchtime, as long as I don't work up too much of a sweat! ;-) I like the first part with the walking -- I will have to check to see if Nicole has any walking DVD's! I can't believe I haven't checked that out before!

This was a great starter workout, I got a great sweat even if a lot of the moves were really uncoordinated. :) Though I did feel like I got left hanging without there being a cool-down included.
Really love this workout and especially love that they show modifications (both for beginners and for advanced exercisers)! I am seriously considering buying the DVD, but for now I am just going to press play and get my sweat on!

It's been a long time since I worked out and this was my first time trying it again. This video certainly makes you sweat! Can't wait to do it again tomorrow!
This is a great workout for when I don't feel like going out in the cold. You're gonna sweat, and it's great that there are three different workouts going on. You can challenge yourself in areas where you can, and in other areas, you can do the less straining version. YAYAYAYAYAYAY ME!!!!!!!!!!!
It wasn't graceful or pretty but I did it. I'm a beginner and 18 minutes was about all I could do...pushed me but not to where I just couldn't keep going. Worked up a sweat. Plan to wait a day and DO IT AGAIN. Seeya, Nicole!
Made it all the way through. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Now my plan is to wake up at 5 am tomorrow and do it again. I'm working on trying to work out early in the morning and later in the evening at Lifetime Fitness. Also if I make a morning workout and don't make the evening at least I got moving. Have to stay motivated.
I knew there was a reason I've never done this type of work out. Played football, baseball and ran track and cross country when I was much younger. Continued running until I blew out a knee while skiing that's never quite recovered. Played mens FP softball into my late 30's (dealt with a heart attack & heart bypass surgery @ 33). Hand eye coordination couldn't keep up so I switched to Slow Pitch into my 50's (went through re-hab from 2nd heart attack & bypass surgery @44). Swimming, stationary bike and walking are now my cardiac training.
We're 66 now (my DW and I) and I've never been known to be able to track my two left feet in dancing. Thankfully I did this video at home, but with my DW watching. She got her daily cardio by laughing hysterically at my inability to move backward tap, clap, squat or reach my hands over my head in a coordinated manner (Give me those old Army calisthenics and I am ON them, but that's just one exercise movement at a time until half the class can't do the exercises correctly).
I was perspiring at the end, but I don't know if it was just the exercise or the combination of exercise and frustration.
I challenged my DW to try it and she was huffing at the end, but other than a couple of fumbled steps, her rhythm was just fine.
I might try this again if I recover from the humiliation I felt. Or not.
