Certified instructor description:
Body-part-focused toning intervals alternated with unusually fast-paced cardio “bursts.” It's a format that's both challenging and time-efficient. Each toning segment targets a specific muscle group with 4 to 6 weight-room-style exercise variations (e.g. four distinct bicep curls — different positions, different tempos, different angles). The step-aerobic cardio intervals are intense — from knee ups and jogs to plyometrics and jumping jacks (done for serious fat-burning, not just easy “rests” between toning sections). Throughout, Kelly Coffey-Meyer consistently emphasizes those minor tweaks that can make an ordinary move even more effective. Formerly titled "The Shape of Things to Come." Requires 2 sets of dumbbells (e.g. 3 and 5 lb.). ©2005.
