Fit Finds :: Dance with Julianne - Just Dance DVD Review

As a dancer, former collegiate cheerleader and an aerobics instructor, it takes quite a bit to not only hold my attention but to also give me a good workout! I think I found all that and a little more in the Dance with Julianne - Just Dance Fitness DVD workout.

The Particulars:
Price - $4.99 on Amazon!
Length - The main dance portion (the part that you would do over and over again) is about 47 minutes long. I highly recommend the dance lesson the first one or two times that you do the DVD just so you are comfortable with some of the moves that go a little faster - that is about 7 minutes long.
Type of Workout - This is mainly a cardiovascular or cardio workout. However, it does have toning elements especially for the inner and outer thighs as well as the abs. If done correctly, this could easily be counted as your new favorite ab workout!

What We Like About It:
Overall, I genuinely enjoyed this workout. It's a great change from what my normal strength training and HIIT routines, and provides that extra special something to trick my muscles from getting "comfortable" with my normal routine.
The length is great! At 47 minutes, I actually feel like I accomplished something. It's easy to pop in a DVD that may have a 20 minute routine, but really? Are you actually getting the workout that you and your body craves?
I also loved the fact that anyone can do this workout! Not only does the "Personal Dance Lesson" (7 minutes) help you with some of the faster, more challenging moves, but there is also a member of Julianne's "group" who strictly sticks to modified movements and moves. You can choose to watch and emulate either one of them!

What We Wish We Could Change:
Turn up the volume! The music in this DVD is actually entertaining, but it's hard to hear because it plays ever so lightly in the background. Other than that, especially for the price, it's all good!

Do you like to change up your cardio? Do you think you may give this a try?

  1. Sounds Fun! I may have to order it! :)

  2. This is a strange question, but are the dance moves G-rated? I need a fun workout I can do with my Kindergartener in the room. Thanks!

    1. Deanne,

      That's not a strange question! I didn't even think of that. I would say that for the most part, they are G-rated! She does say the word "sexy" quite a bit, so if that may be something you would want to consider.


    2. Thanks! I won't be able to go to the gym as much over summer so I am looking for something to do at home too. My son loves doing the workout videos with me. It's actually adorable.

    3. I know this is a little late, but she has a ballroom version that is also pretty good. She is less "sexy" in that one. Still fun and challenging!

  3. Thanks for posting this Tiffany. I bought it and tried it last night. I loved it :) I danced as a kid and this just made me realize how much I missed it. It's not always easy to get cardio in with a 2 year old so this was perfect! AND my abs are very sore today so wahoo! Becca
