Certified instructor description:
An exceptionally varied aero/tone interval workout plus a unique abdominal toning series. The interval program moves beyond the usual Tae Bo basics — it includes lots of interesting/diverse combinations along with several new moves (e.g. "tornado punches," "scissor feet"). Even the tempo is varied; each cardio and toning segment starts slowly and then builds in speed, intensity and complexity (e.g. ending with full-tilt "power bursts" or multi-muscle/multi-exercise body-sculpting). The ab toning workout is also different; it's all done in a chair (e.g. a seated ab curl that engages the core by holding your legs off the floor). The cuing is classic Billy — walking among the class offering technique tips and energizing commentary. Weighted gloves are optional. ©2011.
