I have to admit when I first bought this DVD, I laughed at myself. I don’t even know what possessed me to buy it; maybe I wanted to learn an iota of the sexiness Carmen Electra has. Well, this DVD exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a sensual dance workout.
Carmen Electra’s Aerobic Striptease – In the Bedroom is one of the best dance workout videos on the market right now, and has been sadly underrated on some popular websites. This is definitely a fun workout with thorough instruction and explanations, not to mention being taught by one of the sexiest celebrities of modern times is inspirational for those wanting to lose weight and learn sexier dance moves.
Instructor Attitude (5 out of 5)
For a super-celebrity, Carmen Electra has a superb attitude as an exercise/dance instructor. She is always friendly without acting superior, and knows a lot about aerobic striptease as displayed in the video.
Choreography (5 out of 5)
The choreography is excellent, and the moves accessible for people of all shapes and sizes. Carmen does a great job explaining each move step by step, followed by detailed demonstrations. This makes the DVD ideal for both beginners and people who may have done one of her previous videos.
Warm-Up (5 out of 5)
Carmen takes her video a step farther than some competing videos by including a warm-up segment, which is mainly yoga-based moves done standing in front of a bed. Some of these moves could be a little hard on roughened knees, but are still accessible to most of the general dance exercise population.
Calorie Burn Factor (4 out of 5)
This DVD has a good calorie burn factor. You do occasionally work up a bit of a sweat, depending on your fitness level. In addition, many of the moves are repeated. Those looking for dance aerobics will be disappointed, but people seeking a mixed dance/yoga workout with the multilayered benefits will likely want to pick up this DVD.
It is ideal for women looking to be more in touch with their body, learn sensual dance movements in a tasteful and inspirational video format, and also increase their flexibility and stamina while trimming unwanted inches. The instruction is easy to follow and well-worth a regular effort.
