Dancing With the Stars DVD Review

We've found a DVD that's a great workout. Even if you've never seen the show, these Dancing With The Stars choreographers will amaze you with their fun and fast dances. Let Chelsea, Edyta, and Kym help you slim down and tone with up with moves that will leave you begging for more.

January is fitness month and there's still plenty of time left to figure out a new regimen or add on to your old one. Fitness dancing is sweeping the country with classes like Zumba, Ballet Burn, and Dance Dance Cardio, but they can be expensive or fill up fast. Our solution: DWTS: Ballroom Buns and Abs ($8.49) DWTS Fat Burning Cardio Dance. ($8.49)

These two DVDs pack a powerful punch and after the first 5 minutes you'll be breaking a sweat, learning new moves, and putting them together in a routine. I've seen other fitness dance DVDs but these reign supreme not only for their concise and exciting segments, but because you have so many options with them. On each disc, there are 3 different routines with an added cool-down. But be warned: while I think these are great tools to whip you into shape, they are not easy. I consider myself to be rhythmically inclined and these routines challenged me. We advise clearing plenty of space in your workout area before attempting to move along to these dancing divas.

The Pros:

  • You can get a great workout by doing just one of the 15-minute routines.
  • You can pop in the DVD and you can do it on your schedule.

  • You don't have to own any chic fitness gear (although, we do dig these duds)

The Cons:

  • The dances are slightly advanced. If you're not a "dancer" you may have to watch the instruction lessons a few times before beginning the workouts.
  • Feeling ridiculous might be inevitable 

Dancing With The Stars Ballroom Buns and Abs and Dancing With The Stars Fat Burning Cardio Dance are each sold separately.
