65 Energy Blasts
is an aerobics/exercise DVD for kids of all ages.

• Ideal For:  kids ages 5-10 yrs, and any fitness level.


This DVD contains 65 separate exercise routines, each of which is roughly 1-minute in length.  The 65 exercises are grouped into 4 categories:  African (8), Latin (10), Athletic (23), and Hip-Hop (24).

The exercises are demonstrated by Judy Howard, a physical education teacher, who holds a bachelors and a masters degree in education, along with a group of kids who do a great job of performing in sync with Judy.  In addition, these DVDs are the only kids fitness DVDs approved by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.  Currently, Judy's exercise DVDs have sold more than 30,000 copies and are used by more than 5000 schools in North America.

• What I Liked:  The moves are simple and not overly strenuous.  Judy shows a real enthusiasm for what she is doing.

• What Could Be Better:  Because the routines can be played randomly, every single one begins with the same introduction ("Hi. I'm Judy, and welcome to Energy Blast").  This gets pretty annoying after hearing it several dozen times.


Judy Howard's exercise DVD's are currently used by nearly every school in Canada's British Columbia.  This particular one could be used at home as easily as it is in a classroom setting.
