Certified instructor description:
A well-cued “quickie” fat-burner that's easy to follow and exceptionally graceful — even the kickbox segments seem fluid and elegant. Always powerful and always controlled, Karen keeps your heart rate up with large-muscle and wide-range-of-motion exercises. Each short combination is carefully structured to emphasize variety — from sports to dance, from kickbox to classic aerobics (e.g. a “power squat/grapevine combo” or a “ball-change/baseball swing” series). While Karen uses some higher-impact plyo moves, one exerciser always shows a lower-impact variation. ©2006.
