Description Equipment Needed

This DVD contains three "classic" Cathe cardio workouts, including : Step Jam, Step Heat and Step Max.
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 to give these older workouts an entirely fresh new look and feel.

Step Jam

This workout is designed to challenge you with innovative choreography. You will appreciate Cathe's crystal clear cueing as she makes even the most complicated moves seem easy. This is one of our best selling and liked videos and is a must-have for anyone who loves advanced step videos. The energetic "tribal beat" and "techno country" music are sure to make this one of your favorite videos.
Some unique moves include the "up jack", "rock down", "jump jump", "rear lunge repeater", "two hop curls", "hop curl to the rear", and the "knee up straddle".

Step Jam Format: warm-up 8min., step aerobics 47 min., cool down 5min

Step Heat

This is one of Cathe's most popular step aerobic tapes for people who are new Cathe users. This video is also shorter than Cathe's typical video and features two advanced step segments. The first one is intense and straight forward. The second one involves more intricate choreography. Both sections will challenge even the most experienced stepper! Repeaters, hops, side steps, turns, T-steps, lunges, straddles...all blended into innovative combinations. The workout concludes with an intense 7 minute abdominal section.
The soundtrack (provided by Musicflex) is a new and refreshing instrumental remix of classic 70's & 80's rock music. You'll here favorites such as "Legs", "Addicted To Love", "Show Me the Way", and "Rock n Roll".

Step Heat: warm-up 7min., step aerobics 35 min., cooldown 7 min., abs 7mi., stretch 3 min

Step Max

Step Max is an advanced 60 minute workout that delivers the cardiovascular intensity you're looking for. The upbeat warm-up is full of variety and prepares you for three challenging step sections that get progressively more intense as the workout continues. The first section is more straight forward and linear using base moves which focus on intensity instead of complexity. The second section introduces a fun and easy to learn combination.

It keeps the intensity going through the use of power moves and a full range of motion. Finally, our third section-Plio Power, gives you the ultimate challenge. It's loaded with propulsion, plyometric and power moves. It mixes this high intensity with quick and easy recovery movements.

Get ready to sweat!. You'll love the funky cool down. It's unique and feels so good after you've worked so hard.

Step Max:
warm-up 9min., step aerobics 40 min., step-cool down 7min)

It Proves Old is still Gold November 27, 2013
Reviewer: Jyoti Shekhar from New Delhi, Delhi India  
The Classics are a bunch of non-stop fun workouts where you want to carry on even when you are huffing puffing and sweating and swearing. These are very different from Cathe's comparatively newer workouts. The movements are energetic, dynamic and fun. The pace is catching and the music is awesome.
To be frank, I did not enjoy them so much when I first started doing them. But they have kind of grown on me and now they are my go to collection..when I want a good cardio workout done with groovy music.
Some moves in this collection are very unique and they reveal a very different side of Cathey's early style.
I would recommend this DVD to anyone interested in putting flair ,style and attitude into their step workout.

Love it! March 21, 2011
Reviewer: susan from spring grove, IL United States  
Just received this dvd this week, I've done all 3 workouts. They are so much funner than I expected! Love the old-school hip-hop music that we all know and love :)
If you're used to Cathe's newer dvd's, use an 8 inch step and you'll get a fabulous workout; but a nice break from some of the more complicated DVDs I have. A great value with 3 60+ minute workouts on one DVD! And the outfits (and 'macarena' cool-down)will make you giggle.

Having a blast October 6, 2009
Reviewer: Joss from Kingston, ON Canada  
I'm really enjoying these step workouts. The moves are easy to master with Cathe's great cueing. I only wish that I bought this one years ago. I'm having fun at last with one of the best instructors out there! Why can't they all be like her? I'm impressed with how fast I received it in the mail. Great service! I also own Gym Styles and love that too! I'll be buying more.
