Full Backcover Description
30 Minutes to Fitness Plateau Buster combines two effective workouts on one DVD.
Committing yourself to a fitness regimen usually brings results in the first 4 – 8 weeks. Soon after, your body will adapt to the workload and halt your progress. These workouts are designed to help you break through those stubborn “Plateaus” and get you back on track to reaching your fitness goals sooner.
Both workouts are made up of back-to-back compound moves and easy to follow cardio drills in a tough, yet doable format. All you need are dumbbells and a desire to achieve results.
As you get stronger, fitter and less challenged over time, merely increase your weight load and experience the challenge once again. You can’t grow out of these workouts, you can only grow out of your current fitness level.

Certified instructor description:
Fast-paced aero/tone interval programs that challenge your body in diverse ways (truly structured to “break plateaus”). Kelly Coffey also features easily-intensified exercises that let you increase the weight or impact levels as you get stronger. The programs are very straight-forward. The aerobic intervals range from high-impact jumping jacks to low-impact repeaters (sometimes holding dumbbells to maximize fat-burning). The toning intervals are exceptionally time-efficient. They feature compound exercises where you're working multiple muscle groups at once (fast-changing, usually only 12 reps per routine). As always, Kelly's cuing is friendly and positive. DVD includes a short bonus stretch segment. Requires two sets of dumbbells (e.g. 5 and 10 lb.). ©2012.
