First: Let me start by saying that I like the program as I have watched it and done the Learn and Burn sessions so far. I definately feel the workout and start sweating pretty early into it.
Second: I am about as coordinated as a blind mechanic trying to put in new spark plugs.
Third: I obviously have no latin or african-american genes, as I have the rhythm of a one-legged cricket.
With that out of the way....let me share...
I was dressed in my stylish black capri sweat pants with pink and red piping down each leg. New shoes (New Balance 691's) shining in brilliant white upon my feet. Coffee table slid out of the way exposing a wide area in which to perform whatever acts lovely Chalene was about to put upon me. Pugs, set cozy upon the couch with a treat and toys. They were content.
With mounting excitement, though perhaps with some trepidation, I put the DVD in the player and pressed PLAY. I stood there.
Let me take you ladies into my mind......
Borderline club music, introductions.....yeah yeah fastforward. Ok here we go Ok....Learning the moves....ok here goes....ok making mental notes. There are 11 moves...ok I can do that one, that one, that one, and that one, ok that one, uh, not that one so much....faster? uh, um.....ok punch, twist, crap I hit the side if the TV cabinet. Gotta back up here. No pug stay there, mommas fine. Ok, side, side, kick CRAP...oh baby mommas sorry. I told you to stay on the couch. Momma does not want to play. Stay. Stay. here's your bone. Stay.

OK. Alright. Need a rag for this sweat. Ok need water. OOOh there are a few chips left. No NO don't eat those you idiot!.
At this point I plopped on the couch with the pugs and relaxed some. I did enjoy it but man will I need practice.
