Certified instructor description:
By Debbie Rocker — a compact calorie-burner that maximizes effectiveness by alternating faster and slower cardio intervals (e.g. a 30-second burst followed by a 60-second recovery). The beautiful outdoor setting and varying tempos make it motivating; the walking-based moves make it easy to follow (never dancy — just simple marches, jogs and shuffles). Debbie's continuous, athletic-coach-style cuing is positive and quietly intense — she'll naturally just keep you moving. You also get a 32-minute audio CD for outdoor walking. It features faster/slower intervals and lots of Debbie's motivation and cuing. ©2007.
