Certified instructor description:
The 5-minute cardio intervals are low impact but intense; Karen utilizes a fast pace and a wide range of motion. The toning includes harder/easier options, lots of attention to technique and both standing and floor moves (but no lunges, so it's very easy on your knees, just like the aerobics).
