These are lower to solid intermediate routines. The choreo is fun & easy to follow. The workouts focus on non-dominant training, so you will work you weaker side first. The workouts have a functional feel and mix up genres to create a unique workout experience. All of the instructors provide great cuing & form pointers. I like the variety that these DVDs provide.
