Full Backcover Description

Get the best of both worlds and the most for your effort with this winning combination: calorie-burning cardio along with Pilates-based toning. Low-impact and safe, yet so effective, it maximizes your fat-burning potential.

You’ll start with easy-to-follow cardio that skillfully blends dance and low-impact cardio with standing Pilates-inspired moves into one routine to challenge your aerobic fitness, improve your posture and put you more in touch with the power of your “core.”

Then, kick off your shoes and hit the floor to tighten and tone your favorite body parts, including abs, butt and thighs. Get long, lean, sexy muscles with our series of Pilates mat exercises, sure to give you a year-round bikini body! For faster results than Pilates alone, this combo workout can help you sculpt you body and burn fat! A mat or rug and bare feet are highly recommended for the Pilates floorwork.

Product Description:

Integrates the Pilates principles of control, balance and posture into a fast-paced, truly “fat-burning” workout. You'll mix graceful, ballet-inspired movements with traditional cardio favorites as you continually emphasize the core-strengthening elements of Pilates (e.g. “now pull in through the center”). Then it's a complementary Pilates/yoga matwork segment that's also designed to build lean, strong dancer-style muscles. The workout features a bright colorful set, high-energy exercisers and a very motivating on-stage drummer. ©2003.
