America’s favorite fitness expert Denise Austin gets kids in shape with an energetic workout that is fun for kids of all ages! Starring 12 kids and using elements of dance, hip-hop, sports drills, yoga and stretching, this workout is a perfect way to encourage kids to keep moving and stay healthy. Set in Times Square, the combination of modern music, bright colors and fun steps makes FIT KIDS a great exercise routine that is so fun they’ll want to do it over and over! With the goal to get kids moving, fitness expert Denise Austin leads preteens in a 20-minute total body workout incorporating elements of dance, hip-hop, sports drills, and yoga. It begins with a six-minute warm up of stretches and lunges, followed by seven minutes of cardio-funk, kick-boxing, and traditional aerobics. The program ends with a strengthening segment of push-ups, abdominal exercises, and beginning yoga. Effervescent Austin provides adequate verbal coaching to a dozen kids who perform the moves. This moderately fast-paced program assumes its participants are fairly fit at the onset and in only a few cases offers reduced levels of participation for varying abilities. No equipment is necessary and minimal space is required in this energetic option for general youth fitness. Don’t miss the DVD’s bonus episode, “Family Fit,” a 20-minute workout designed for families to do together. It follows the same format as the “Fit Kids” routine, with the addition of a few exercises that require partnering for resistance training. One segment employs a basketball (or similar sized ball) which is the only equipment necessary. “Quality fitness, doing it together,” is Austin’s peppy mantra, which results in a corny but clever way to get families off the couch.

Has potential, but would not recommend for beginners My 5-year-old son begged for this DVD when I bought myself a workout video. Part I is FitKids, which is a kids workout. It is difficult to follow for those not familiar with aerobics. It starts out very fast and doesn’t give a lot of instruction on proper technique and form, which I think would be important for a workout video aimed towards kids. The FitFamily section is definitely not aimed at beginners. It is pretty fast paced (from a beginners point of view) and I had a hard time…
