Always looking for a different way to get my exercise in, I couldn't help but buy "Dancing with the Stars Cardio Dance". Ok, I confess, I bought it because Maxim Chmerkovsky is in it. What woman wouldn't want to dance with him? He's hot.
The video features 4 dances- the paso doble, samba, cha cha, and the jive. Since the paso doble is a slower dance I was doing really well at first. Ok, I confess, I really just watched Maxim and didn't do too much dancin, but I did get me heart rate up, *wink*wink.
The other featured dancers were Kym Johnson (she danced with Joey Fatone this year), Ashly Costa (Harry Hamlin's partner last year), but since Maxim wasn't in those segments I decided to actually dance. Well, I use the term dance loosely. I basically tried to keep up with the steps and not bump into my coffee table. It wasn't a total success, but with a little practice I'm sure it could become a good workout.
