This DVD contains three cardio workouts, including Catheís Rhythmic Step, Interval Max and Maximum Intensity Cardio on one DVD.
As with all of our DVDs, you can easily program your DVD player to choose only the sections of each workout that you want to do. You can even mix one section from one workout with another. Video clips from all three workouts are shown in the player above.


Rhythmic Step

This refreshingly advanced, all-step workout, is loaded with interesting and unique choreography that will keep you motivated from start to finish.
You'll begin the workout with a very thorough warm up. It contains a mini combination, plus a series of dynamic movements to elevate the heart rate and prepare the muscles for the vigorous workout ahead. The warm up concludes with active stretching.
Next you will start with your first combination, which is a refreshing blend of power and rhythmic dance movement patterns. This section definitely defines the flavor of the entire workout.
Then you will move on to the second combination, which is a bit longer than the first. This combination features a fun up and back pattern, as well as the tap hop repeater which we are sure you'll enjoy.
Then you'll learn the third combination, which features a tough, yet fun, intensity blast in the middle of the combo. You'll be sweating your way through some very unique and energetic movement patterns. Some feature moves include a hop kick on top with a jack knee exit, a rejuvenated drop squat, pendulum, cha cha mix, and a tap heel shuffle 3 move.
The final cardio section is our special bonus feature.....The Rhythmic Step Challenge! This was unanimously voted "most favorite section". You'll be sweating your way through a non-stop, heart pounding zig zag medley of ALL the finished products put together as one long combination. No breakdown, no stopping, just 100% endless energy! You'll love it!
Finally, you'll conclude with a relaxing stretch.

Rhythmic StepFormat: warm - up 10 min, 1st step aerobics section 11 min., 2nd step aerobics section 14 min. 3rd step aerobics section 12 min., Rhythmic Step Challenge 9 min. and a 4 min cool down)

Interval Max

No tricky choreography in this video. Just all-out-intense intervals.
IntervalMax is a 60 minute tape based on the interval training concept. This workout will improve your cardiovascular fitness level and boost your metabolism, therefore allowing you to burn more total calories.

The workout consists of a 13 min. warm - up followed by a mini step routine. It then continues with 10 intervals each lasting 3 to 4 min. Each interval has an aerobic, an anaerobic phase and a recovery phase. These intervals are not only extremely challenging but easy to learn and fun to do. The workout concludes with a relaxing stretch.The soundtrack (Provided by Dynamix) in this tape is all instrumental, very upbeat and full of variety.

Interval Max Format: warm - up 13 min, step aerobic intervals 38 min.,cool down 3 min, stretch 6 min

Maximum Intensity Cardio

Maximum Intensity Cardio is a 70 minute advanced aerobic/step workout with the emphasis on aerobics and endurance.
The first half of this video will challenge your cardiovascular system with a super charged high/low impact routine. The intensity of the hi/low starts out with moderate moves that rapidly get more intense. This section finishes with very challenging intervals that will test the endurance of even the advanced exerciser. The step portion of the workout continues to
have cardiovascular demanding moves, but shifts your energy into a non-stop aggressive step workout.
This step section will consist of three combinations that gradually become more intense by layering on power and variation. Your Mind and body will love this cross-training combination. Mentally you are able to keep pushing because you shift your focus to a new movement style to free you from repetition.
As always, Cathe saves the best for last, as she concludes with an all out step interval blast that will leave no doubt on why this video is called ìMaximum Intensityî. This workout should be alternated with Maximum Intensity Strength for a complete and balanced workout.

Maximum Intensity Cardio Format: warm-up 7 min., Hi/Low aerobics 26 min., Step aerobics 33 min., Stretch 4.5 min.

oldie but goodie October 15, 2013
Reviewer: Margaret L. from NY United States  
3 excellent cardio challenges!!  Rhythmic step is steady state cardio but don't let that fool you.  It's a great step routine that moves right along.  You go through a routine that's add on style then do the completed routine.  DO this 3 times, in the end you have a challenge where you put them all together. Then there's the original Imax..WOW! A definite calorie burner.  You go through a step routine that repeats itself then on to the blast. 10 times! Another excellent step routine that will leave you breathless! Maximum intensity is an all out "eat you Wheaties" workout!  This one is truelly a challenge and probably the hardest of the 3.  The first part is hi/lo w/ NO step, sounds easy right....NOT!  The step section has no dancy choreography, just powerful movements that test your endurance.  All 3 have decent footwork as there is nothing tricky, just powerful athletic moves that get the heart rate up. Some of the moves are jacks, sumo sqats, power 15's etc.  These are keepers.

Time flew by! October 24, 2007
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Silver Spring, MD United States  
I just finished Rhythmic Step (I'm going back and discovering Cathe's older workouts), and I really enjoyed it. I've done lots of Cathe's step workouts and found that this one really challenged me with new moves and literally nonstop action. The time flew by as I concentrated on remembering the choreography, which is a challenge I enjoyed. I especially enjoyed the Rhythmic Step Challenge that linked all the choreography together. I messed up a few times but look forward to getting it all next time. This is a workout I look forward to trying again and boy did I sweat. Thanks, Cathe!

AMAZING cardio options July 10, 2007
Reviewer:  Maddy from Los Angeles  
Interval Max is one of my favorite cardio/step workouts because I love to train using sprints/intervals like this. It's incredibly challenging and I doubt if many, if any, people could do it all the way through the 1st time. Or even the 2nd! But it's one to grow with and the moves are simple so you can focus on the work.

MIC is incredible and can easily be split into two separate sessions. I LOVE the step portion so I often pair that with something else (weights or another warm up). This hi-lo is great, just not usually my favorite activity.

But for amazing results and a lot of fun, Interval Max is a sure thing!

I love Maximum Intensity Cardio (MIC) October 26, 2005
Reviewer: Sarah from Oshkosh, WI United States  
I love the hi/lo section of this. It's so bouncy and it just makes me want to really get into it. It kicks my butt and I can't always "jack" like Cathe & Crew, but it's still one of my favorites. The Step portion is fun too. After doing IntervalMax, the blasts at the end of the step part seem like a piece of cake! Even though I really don't like doing those two-footed jumps on the steps. They are uncomfortable for me. I usually subsitute a plyo-jack and then two quick jumps.
