  • This is my favourite dance cardio workout!! After trying this two/three times I managed to get a hold of the routine, the instructor is full of positive energy and now during quarantine I’ve got plenty of time to do this workout several times a week. Loving all of POPSUGAR’s workout videos, keep em coming!!

  • Really great workout! I enjoy it a lot, only one pretty big problem: the girl puts together too long exercices. I mean I can’t memorize so many moves for one exercise. I would prefere short moves that we can make many times and then do another exercise and so on. But yeah, I love the trainer

  • oh ya pamela reif do hv explaination videos of the exercise. its in her live videos. most of the other workout videos hv a repetition from those live videos tat she post

  • How does she keep talking, when I can’t even breath right anymore. And please are the minutes doubling? Cause it sure feels like 20 mins instead of 10��

  • Started doing this workout
    Gained lots of weight cause of this lockdown. Any suggestions of what else could be done to lose weight?

  • Hey, was hoping you would cover one of Madfit’s 20/30min Full Body HIIT workouts. Wondering if they’re as effective as they feel in burning calories.

  • not giving people a chance to know when the moves are about to change and changing them that often music is way too quiet to enjoy dancing to. Also think those warm up moves are way too fast to be safe considering people are trying to keep up with you.

  • youtube has been reccomending your channel to me for a while and i decided to watch one of your videos and glad i did. You’re very underrated and i hope you get the hype soon

  • I literally did Madfits dance work outs today! I did 18 songs back to back and burnt just over 500 calories! I love her work outs!! ��������

  • Is Custokebon Secrets effective to lost tons of weight? I’ve learn many good stuff about Custokebon Secrets (just search it on google).

  • Can you do Lucy Wyndham-reed please? Shes a british fitness trainer. Particularly her 10 minute high or low intensity cardio workout and some of her 7 minute challenges?

  • I just started the workout and I was like omg can someone help me I can not breathe anymore but I will continue to do this while we have summer holidays because to see the results after the holidays in my new school ����

  • After 3 weeks of not training I started with this. Before I could do this without any pain or sweat, I even started thinking that it is too easy to do so much. But I had amazing results. Now… Well… Trust me I FEEL that it is working.

  • Hey! This is the type of content i’ve been looking for and I think you should talk about some of Holly Dolke’s workout videos too, for example this one, which is targeting the thighs https://youtu.be/KBf69qWnvvI.

  • Okay for someone who has never done this, I wish she would go a little slower and actually show us the move before just jumping into it. LOL Having trouble keeping up!

  • If you are hella lazy go take a hot shower:)
    You burn like 100 calories every 15 min if you weight more or slightly more than 180 lbs

  • Watching her IG videos of her fitness classes. It’s watching someone know the dance moves ahead and barely explains the moves. Most of the class is trying to catch up and looking a bit lost. To Amanda, she’s like an energizer bunny with being a professional Rockette, a trained dancer with a cheerleader attitude. Makes everything look like it’s easy for her but that’s with yearssss of professional experience.

    It’s like my PTSD of being lost in Zumba.

  • I really love this workout video! I do it everyday and I’m slowly improving on the arms and starting to get through it without dropping them! The routines are so fun, sassy and high energy which I love! I’ve tried A lot of dance cardio work outs on YouTube and they all seem too easy and slow and I end up not sweating as much as I would like, but this one does the job. I don’t think it’s very beginner friendly and more on the advanced side as you need to pick up the movements fairly quickly in order to get the full intensity of the workout but that’s fine for me as it’s right up my street. Thank you for this!

  • Just realized she’s the wife of the broadway star, Nick Cordero, who’s been battling Covid 19 for weeks and still in ICU. Amanda, you are so strong and courageous! Pray for Nick’s recovery.

  • I have a better work out. Burn more calories than you eat. Jog 500 cal every day. Then eat salads for breakfast a tuna sandwich for lunch for dinner another tuna sandwich. Everyday for 14 days. I guarantee weight loss.

  • Maybe it’s a dumb question, but:
    If I exercise a lot and the workouts get easier for me, my heart rate isn’t as high anymore, isn’t it? Do I burn less calories then, too although I do the same workout?

  • LOVE THE WAY YOU INSTRUCT! And the examples that help the moves, “letting the beach ball fly away”. This was so much fun. Adding to my routine! THANKS!!!

  • Also the heavier a pdrson is than u wjen they workout they get stronhrer because they have to work harder and because of that they get stringer than most people

  • Research has shown that the most efficient way to lose calories is distance running. Running 30 minutes at a **6 minute per mile pace** would cause you to burn 643 calories for a 170 lbs person. You’re telling me that Yuri’s workout burns more calories than running 5 miles in 30 minutes? Total bulls#$%.

  • Am seated and watching this hoping to do it later and sharing to my friends to try encouraging them coz we all lazy���� next time am watching this hope to be actually working out

  • As an instructor its way too fast for the lay person, she doesn’t cue opposite left and rights, and moves to quickly to the next move. You want your student to be inspired, not defeated.

  • U better do 2-3hours of cycling at 100+ rpm and burn 2500-3000calories
    Or 1,5-2h running and burn 2000-2500cals
    And u will have increased metabolism for the next 48hours.

  • Just subscribed! I love your videos especially since we are the same height!
    Could you do PopSugar fitness workout videos on Youtube, more specifically the kickboxing ones? I only do the ones by Christina Dipaolo that’s titled “Burn 500 Calories in a 45-Minute Boxing Workout” Would love to see if it’s accurate.

  • ¿En cuál colección de DVD aparece ésta rutina? ME ENCANTA! Tengo la colección sencilla de Zumba Incredible results, y uno de mis instructores favoritos fue sin duda Steve, él es genial

  • This workout was really difficult for me to follow. I’m pretty advanced and I normally have no trouble completing a workout, but I could barely keep up. And the instructions were really vague so it took me a few rounds to grasp what I was supposed to do and by that time she moved on. Also, I felt like this workout was really unbalanced. She favored the right side and some moves didn’t even do the left side so I had to switch sides myself and that got me even more confused. Lastly, it annoyed me on the arm part that she kept saying it was the last move and then just kept adding new moves

  • theory: the worst punishment in hell is actually just this arm workout, except it lasts forever and satan (who is leading the workout) won’t stop saying ‘just a little bit longer!’ with an encouraging smile

  • Oh my! For the first few seconds I thought I turned on the 1.5 playback speed but I found I didn’t!! LOL What an advanced workout for me!!!

  • My muscles are crying I done all the dances and I was able to keep up with them but I think I put to much energy and strength into it and now I’m exhausted I’m going to do this everyday with some other dance workout videos on this channel

    EDIT: btw good luck everyone else who decides to follow this ��✌��️

  • I did this workout today first time
    I really enjoyed it but I felt silly doing it as I have big belly
    I am determined to do this everyday until I get rid of some belly fat.thanks guys awesome job.

  • I love her dance workout videos! I track my calories too and what I realised was that since this is a dance workout, you sometimes don’t know the steps and so I too would burn 150 odd calories. But once i did the video 3-4 times, i got a better grasp of the steps allowing me to do them in a better manner and then i was burning about 200 calories. I think its a great cardio workout, its just 15 minutes, its fun and supplements my workouts realllllyyyyyy well

  • I did this routine for the first time and felt deep, agonizing pain in muscles I didn’t even know existed. I feel alive and dead at the same time.

  • i felt really good while doing it but i felt that im 50 years old while in reality im only 16 years old but i had some difficulty doing some moves

  • i love you!!!!!!!!!!! im smiling the whole time im working out-best workouts ive had in a really long time!!!!!!!!!! your energy is contagious. Thank you for making this awesome fun video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you for being you

  • This cannot be 100 calories i mean i’m not tired at all it was fun bit i have done like other ones like these 20 minutes and is like 100 calories, i mean i’m just asking if this is seriously cause i would for these to be 100 calories

  • I have never done any type of dance based workout, and sadly had to give up after a couple of minutes because I’m just not coordinated enough to be able to follow what she is doing!:(

  • I like the workout but I don’t like the way she gives instructions. She forgets that there are people who are watching the video for the first time! I stopped midway because the way she gave instructions was so bad. It was frustrating. It’s a pity, cause the workout is fun

  • I think I’m going to stick to Mike Peele’s workouts. I feel completely lost throughout this whole thing there’s no breaking it down or anything. Also side note if you have a bigger bust than normal this much jumping all the time is horrible.. no thank you����

  • MadFit’s workouts are great. So many videos, I would love it if she would either put them together into programs like Chloe Ting or put them on a calendar like Blogilates.

  • I love working out but watching this from my couch is already satisfying enough than actually doing it. Thank you to make me smile today!

  • Popsugar, you’ve been in the game long enough to know that a video instructor gives “mirror” cues. That is the instructor cues right leg, but she’s technically using the left leg. I’ve been avoiding Pop for a long time, and I finally relent only to be disappointed!

  • A lot people commenting its too fast, but it can be great that it moves relatively quickly… since it’s a video, you can pause and workshop the moves while you’re learning and when you revist the workout, you can have a powerful 30min workout without sitting through the instructions. The right/left issue is a bit of a pain, but if you have the access/ability, I just put my computer facing a full length mirror so I don’t have to mentally reverse it, and we’re still on the same side.

  • hello, pls do popsugar fitness!! �� i’ve been doing their workouts along with pamela reif and im really curious about the calories i burn. thank you so much!

  • In 1 week i lost 3 pounds with a good diet and doing this exercice everyday..I have 15 pounds more to lose..don’t give up guys,it’s hard To lose weight but at the end you Will be proud of yourself,more strong and confident.Keep it up

    Update:hi guys i haven’t weighed myself yet but i can clearly see my belly is not as big as it used to be even my family is amazed how my body changed in a few weeks before i couldn’t stand looking at myself in a mirror but now I’m so proud of myself that I’m no longer ashamed or afraid to see myself in a mirror. I hope it goes well for you too. Don’t give up and good luck to you all����

  • Too fast, I couldn’t follow her well and I do workouts a lot. I m sorry to say that I couldn’t wait for it to finish! The moves felt quite dated and I just felt as though I was jumping around a lot. Compare this to workouts by Tanju Zumba. It’s good to try new things though and I appreciate her energy, she obviously has very strong arms ��

  • BIG NO NO. Hard to follow. Moves change too fast and frequently. Even the assistant trainers can’t follow. Wish I had read the comments first.

  • Too hard and the instructor is too fast and hard to follow. Really frustrating. I don’t know your fricking moves bc I haven’t rehearsed like 20 times like y’all have. I can’t work out if I don’t know the moves. Stupid.

  • If I use apps like Lifesum and log my excersise what would I type in for the workouts? Like is it Zumba or would I just type dance? And what would I type for the ab workouts because it usually says specific ab excersises?

  • Fab routine, will definitely be doing this one again, so I can learn all the moves. The arm exercise at the end is a killer. Thank you.

  • I gave up about 9 minutes in. Very confusing and the direction is very vague. Normally an instructor mirrors a person and wouldn’t say right leg when it would be our left. So hard to follow.

  • I’m pretty dang sure that this is too fast for a beginner without pausing the video. Also, stop talking damnit! If you want to dance, just get urself some awesome music and start, u don’t need a way too fast routune for that!

  • I am getting tired so easily. My heart beat so fast. I just dance 18 minutes.it’s my first time. It’s okay.? Can anyone tell me,please…

  • I don’t think I burned 100 calories because I spent half of the time standing there like whaaaaaaat because I had no idea how to make myself move like that:D

  • I have a dancer-background but these moves were too many too fast. Didnt enjoy the feeling of being left behind.�� would not do this work out again.

  • Is it normal for my left rib to hurt when I dance? I don’t have any health problems. I think it might be bc I’m overweight and I don’t work out much but I’m not sure.

  • This morning I ran 12kms in 1 hour and 37 minutes at an average heart rate of 135
    929 calories burned.
    Slow and steady wins the race injury free.
    Fast and vigorous may crash and burnout or may finish however not very maintainable long term.

  • wait just the chorus burns that many calories or the whole dance? and yes ik how much power you use changes the amount of cals burnt

  • I really doubt it burns 260-360 calories. A HIIT workout burns 400 in about an hour So this being half the time and possibly half the actual work It would sadly prob only burn at most 150-200 calories
    Edit: and that would be if you’re on the bigger side, sadly smaller people tend to burn less calories when working out

  • Hey, would you be able to please share the video with me through email? Like part 1 and 2 just incase they get blocked again. ��❤️

  • U should reconsider ur choice of the music. This is a bet noisy. The tips are amazing but couldn’t finish the video because of the noisy music ��

  • Even though I know I won’t be able to do everything that fast like them and I’m terrible at dancing this is still such a brilliant idea. Dance cardio is the best cardio ever because it’s fun but if burns a lot of calories.

  • Ok, honestly I appreciate the free workout but there are a few problems here. 1. MIRROR the video. Please. 2. You’re going way too fast. I’m not stupid or unsporty I just don’t know your sets yet. 3. Tell us what you will do before you do it. The counting isn’t as important. “Fore, kick, back, right” 4. Count right please! It’s not 1, 1, 2, 1. It’s 1, 2, 3, 4. 5. We need more breaks. There’s no way we can stay hydrated like this. A water break of a minute in the middle and maybe 2 more breaks that are 30 s. 6. The arms set is dangerous. Stop telling people to keep their arms up even though they hurt badly. You have to listen to your body, especially beginners. You can get torn muscle tissue if you do it anyway. 7. Some movements are a little old school. You should stretch your legs before you kick, you shouldn’t rotate your head 360°. People can get injured if you don’t prepare them properly. In modern sports lessons they go about these “dangerous” or fast/stretchy movements a little more careful. So thanks again but please consider improving these videos a bit. And stay safe everyone out there, make breaks when you need them, TAKE YOUR ARMS DOWN. It’s ok, you’re doing great.

  • I can’t wait to try your Workouts again!! I’ve left home for my internship and for some reason my eating habits got absolutely horrible… I look forward to coming home and working out hard for the rest of summer! ��

  • stop putting out false advertisement yo it’s not possible for every person watching this to burn THAT many calories everyone is different this video is wrong

  • El peor video, apenas hice 15 minutos y lo cambie, todo muy rápido la instructora cambia las rutinas. No se como las otras le pueden seguir.
    Si son muy rápidos y aprenden rápido se los recomiendo si son nuevos ni lo piensen.

  • Sometimes I do admire those professional dancers, not because they look absolutely fit, but because whatever movements they do, they look pretty and elegant:)

  • This works great with the Weight loss green store tea im drinking. I can feel my weight loss doubly faster. I was losing 2 pounds a week with it alone but when I added this to my diet, I started losing 3-4 pounds a week.

  • I found the moves quite difficult to follow, maybe because it’s my first time but yeah, I don’t think I’ll be doing this particular video again:(

  • Just can’t believe there are many comments in every workout video, of people afraid of being watched while working out and also they feel stupid…(?) for god’s sake, if you think always in everybody and what they would think then you’re not stupid, you’re just insecure. It’s time to feel PROUD OF YOU, taking care of yourself,
    don’t be ashamed if someone sees you, FOCUS ON YOU… working out and taking care of your health is something everybody must always do! a lifestyle; so GET UP AND SHINE 😉 ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

  • How misleading..this workout does NOT burn 100 calories. After 1min it clams to burn 20cals. Yes, Zumba is a great way to burn calories, but please don’t be informed by the title.

  • your videos are so helpful thank you so much!:) I’ve been doing “walk at home with leslie” videos evey day and I realized so many people do it as well. I think you should check it out the 3 mile walk 45 minutes one and share your opinions with us! I would like to see how many calories do we burn on average. it’d be great if you make a video about it!:)

  • would you PLEASEEE do pamela reif’s new intense ab workout and chloe ting summer shred 2019 workout!! (the summer shred 2019 workout has a quite intense workout in there so i really wanna know how many calories it actually burns) Thank you:))
