Certified instructor description:
An ultra-challenging aero/tone interval program with athletic-style cardio and lots of compound muscle toning. No gimmicks here — this program is guaranteed to reshape your body ... if you can keep up! The three-minute, high-impact cardio drills range from L-steps and speed skates to L-hops and jumping jacks (as floor aerobics, they're tough, but one group even does them using a step). The shorter toning intervals maximize results by working multiple muscles at once. They include a mix of weight-room, compound-muscle and balance exercises. Excellent instruction with pre-move cuing, on-screen tips and very smooth transitions. Motivating countdown timer and tribal/drum soundtrack. Requires two sets of dumbbells (e.g. 5 and 10 lbs.). ©2009.
