Fe Fit or Baladea?

I am contemplating which system to buy since they are both on sale. Any opinions?

Fe Fit. I really liked these. I know many found the instructor to be annoying and there is some mommy talk but this didn't bother me. I thought they were solid workouts and I did get results. Got right back into my skinny jeans. I know that this isn't a priority for some but it was for me.
I found Baladea too easy and kind of boring. A VFer let me try it and I did them all. I returned them and decided not to buy.

I thought Baladea was a dreadful set - the setting was lovely, but the music was awful - it played on a loop and wasn't even close to being with the moves on the workouts I did. I sent it back.

I know nothing about FeFit, but agree that Baldea was bad. I tried it for 2 weeks and returned it.

I got Fe Fit for Christmas, but haven't previewed it yet. I have to say, I was a little put off with all the "we are MOMs" verbiage in the printed material. I thought this was a program for women...not just those who chose to reproduce. Hopefully the workouts are good. I was planning to do a rotation after doing the new Jessica Smith program.

Can anyone speak to how much high impact there is? I'm really needing low impact at this point.

There is a modifier for every workout. I just ignored the mommy talk.

All of the Baladea workouts are on YouTube - at least they were. Haven't checked lately.

I had FeFit briefly but I found her non stop chatter and "mommy talk" didn't click with me. I am so far past the mommy stuff at 58, lol! IIRC, there is impact but it is modifiable. But I had it a long time ago so don't quote me on that.

You can try 15 min. versions of Fe Fit on their site. It's a good way to tell if the instructor will bother you. I thought this was a good intermediate set with a lot of variety. I ignored the mommy talk since my youngest is 17.

I don't know anything about Baladea. It didn't get good VF reviews so I never bought it.
