How about either Kelly's Circuit Burn (which also includes weight training) or her upcoming T.L.C., Train Like a Contender? The latter is supposed to ship within the next few weeks--I can't wait!

Maybe I'll just stick with Cardio Blast...

Trust me, I'm not uber advanced but I think this workout looks harder on preview than when you do it. The low impact section wasn't intense cardio- wise either. JMHO.

They're not step workouts, though.

You might also consider Jari Love's Get Extremely Ripped 1000. It's a cardio weight circuit but it has premixes (30 min. each) of just cardio or just weights. The cardio is done on the step for the more advanced exercisers or off the step if you prefer. It's very simple choreography done in 3 min intervals. She builds the intensity/complexity up every 30 - 60 sec. but nothing is complicated.

It's a very good workout IMO and not expensive. I just did the weights only premix this weekend and loved it. The reps weren't outrageous & it didn't take very long for a total body workout.

One nice thing that is becoming rare in new step dvds is that cardio blast has a slightly slower bpm which I really appreciated. Most of the new dvds keep speeding up the bpm which I don't like for step.

There's something really fun about Debra Mazda's Let's Get Stepping. It's a favorite of mine.

I know, Diana. Let's Get Stepping is a fun no-dread workout, isn't it!

I was inspired by this thread to do KCM's Cardio Blast today. So fun, and I was able to follow Kelly for everything but the bench hops (I followed Samantha then).

I enjoy the music in this one like you mentioned earlier.

I also like Cathe's Basic Step. Gin Miller has some nice options. Don't forget about the Jenny Ford workout, that will hopefully be released soon.

I just looked at Cathe's Intensity. I thought it looked boring. Same moves over and over, endless jumping.

I like Cathe's Step Moves, although I know it's not terribly popular around here. Ever tried that one?
