The two 20-minute workouts can be done separately or together — whatever works for you. Although challenging for a novice and enthusiast level exerciser, the routines are geared for non-dancers so you won’t struggle to keep up with the choreography. Besides toning and burning, learning the steps enhances balance, coordination and ease of movement.

Total run time is about 50 minutes including the warm up and cool down; the warm up is interesting because it’s done all from a sitting position and serves as its own mini-workout. You’ll need a mat.
