Workout Review: Rockin’ Body
Rockin’ Body definitely has the silly factor that will keep you smiling through the entire workout. Whether it's the fact that there's a live studio audience watching Shaun T and his dancers on stage, or the ’80s-style metallic spandex... you're sure to find something entertaining in this program.
But it actually is a decent workout as well. Most of the music is just instrumental/synthesizer music, which I think is a bit less fun than popular songs you'd recognize, but the routines themselves are enjoyable and the time goes fast. Shaun T is his usual sassy self, which adds to the entertainment vale.
Program length: 4 weeks
Workout length: If you include the deluxe workouts, you've got 8 full-length workouts ranging in length from 25 to 45 minutes, as well as a 10-minute ab workout and a 15-minute intro session that teaches the basics of the program.
What equipment is needed? While most of the sessions require no equipment, there is one strength-focused session that uses weights. It's designed as a light-weight, high-rep workout so I used 5 lb weights for this.
How is it structured? The program comes with a workout calendar that shuffles you through the sessions, with six days on and one rest day each week.
What kinds of moves are involved? Hip-hop style dance moves (and one ’70s-influenced session with disco-style moves), learning one combo at a time and then moving on (so there aren't long strings of choreography to remember)
Low-impact? Yes, and the moves that have some hopping or are more intense have modifications shown.
