No time to exercise? We have the solution for you- the 10 Minute Solution! Everyone can find at least ten minutes in their day, and we’ve developed 5 belly blasting dance workouts that are just 10 minutes each. Stress can lead to belly fat, and what better way is there to release stress and reduce your tummy bulge than burning off calories while dancing to some feel-good music? These 10 minute dance blasts can fit into even the busiest of schedules. So split them into 5 separate workouts for a quick fix anytime, or do them all together for one incredible, revitalizing, belly-slimming workout!
Belly Blaster: Fire up your body and keep the calories burning with plenty of hip action to whittle your middle. This workout will give you all the moves that you need to get the dance party started.
Latin Flavor Waist Sizzler: Use a little mambo, a little cha cha and even a little tango tummy toner to sizzle off some extra pounds. These Latin inspired moves are surprising ab sculptors and will help thin your waistline.
Attitude & Energy: Bring all of your attitude and all of your energy to the dance floor. Then get ready to go from ab flab to ab fab in style with these fat erasing moves.
Fat Burning Beat: Combine hot moves with driving rhythms to create this unique dance that will waste no time in trimming your midline. Feel the beat, move your feet and dance your belly away.
Dancer’s Silhouette: Sometimes you need to flatten your belly FAST, and by using a dancer’s posture you can! In this refreshing segment the focus is on activating your core muscle, standing tall, moving with grace, and slimming your silhouette – all without a single sit up.

Led by Petra Kolber, this program burns calories as it tones your abs. It's a time-efficient way to lose weight and reshape your midsection. No crunches or curls here, each 10-minute segment blends core muscle movements into every dance routine (e.g. hip rotations, chest pops, rib cage isolations ... even “the snake”). Each segment features a distinct style — from Latin and ballet to classic aerobic dance (this programmable DVD lets you play any segment in any order). Petra's instruction is super-motivating — her energy is high, her form is perfect and her attitude is playful. ©2008.
