Rockin’ Body is another Beach Body program. It stars Shaun T. He’s this fit black dude. He’s funny, energetic, and a good teacher. However, I wasn’t very impressed with Rockin’ Body overall. I think it would be more fun in person, but was rather lame at home.
The set I got has 7 workouts on 2 DVD’s. The one good workout is Rockin’ Abs. This is the best quick ab workout! It’s fun and I definitely feel it. It’s also the only reason I didn’t return the entire program. (Makes me wish I went with my original plan and ordered his Hip Hop Abs instead.) If the rest of the program was a good as this, it would be great, but sadly, it’s not.
The other workouts didn’t seem like dancing, just flapping around mostly or old school aerobics and floor work instead. There’s a lot of down time transitioning between routines and/or moves. The costumes and backup “dancers” were very immodestly dressed with way too much spray on tan. The set and lighting were distracting.
The music was one of the worst parts. I was expecting with a name like Rockin’ Body to have some great music. Instead, it was poor remakes that will leave you disappointed if you love the original tunes. Most of the music is unrecognizable and the songs they brag about are only remakes. It also doesn’t fit the choreography very well in places; either your working hard in the slow part of the song or the music is pumping and your not.
Yes. I did give the program the benefit of the doubt and try them several times before giving up. I think they were trying to do too much extra stuff to create a concert mood which really detracted instead of enhanced the workouts.
The exercises themselves are pretty good. I just couldn’t really get into it. I still dig Rockin’ Body out every once in awhile for variety but these videos spend most of the time on the shelf.
