Whether you love or hate working out, if you enjoy dancing or want to learn to dance, the Cize Shaun T Dance Workout DVD Base Kit should be right up your alley.
An Amazon Best Seller in the fitness DVD category, the moves in this 4-week dance/power cardio program, are very clearly and repeatedly demonstrated. With nothing left to chance, the program is doable, even if you’ve never danced a step before in your life.
Along with learning some cool new dance moves, with the Cize Workout DVD, you will burn calories and fat, as you tone and sculpt your muscles.
There are two versions of the kit to choose from, the Base Kit and the Deluxe Kit. The main component of both is 6 dance segments on 3 DVDs. The intensity of these increases as you progress. There is also an ab workout. The other components of the package vary, depending on whether you buy the base or the deluxe kit.
People of all fitness levels have successfully used the program. In my opinion, however, its format is more suited to new and intermediate level exercisers than those who are already very fit.
NB: Please be aware that the delux kit is not currently available.
What’s in the Cize Shaun T Kits?
Along with the dance segments, included with the Cize Shaun T Workout Base Kit is a Start Guide, a Meal Plan, 2
Workout Calendars and a Weekend Survival Guide. Used in conjunction with the workouts, you will have everything you need to transform your shape for the better.

Cize Shaun T Summary
If you’re looking for a fun workout you can do at home, this program delivers. A recent BeachBody/Shaun T collaboration, the Cize workout DVD is proving to be a hit with purchasers. While it has great fat burning and cardio benefits, Cize is less intense than some of Shaun T’s other programs. Nevertheless, put in the effort, and you will sweat, be out of breath, burn calories and improve your fitness.
It’s up to you how much you put into the moves. This makes Cize suitable even for people with knee and joint problems who are seeking a very low-impact fitness program. It may not, however, suit those looking for a workout that is intense from start to finish. If this is what you’re looking for, you may prefer Shaun T’s Insanity or P90X3.
