Bob Harper motivates six actual TV show contestants through four 20-minute segments. You'll feel like you're just one of these enthusiastic, sweating-real-sweat weight-loss “winners.” Each segment features a distinct technique: low-intensity cardio, high-intensity cardio, body sculpting and aero/tone intervals.
While the DVD lets you play them in any combination/sequence, Bob recommends a daily 34-minute workout (i.e. the warm-up, one of the exercise techniques, then the cooldown). Designed for beginners, the moves are easy to follow and Bob's instruction is always super-clear. The toning section requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. This DVD also has 20 minutes of inspirational Biggest Loser success stories. ©2005.
