You can create your ideal personal workout by choosing the 10 to 16-minute segments that are right for you (each section has a specific purpose — fat-burning, muscle-toning or flexibility). For even more customization, some segments focus on gender-specific “problem areas” (e.g. a women-only series that targets your thighs and abs).
The moves range from athletic marches to kickbox cardio, from dumbbell body-sculpting to stability ball toning — all proven exercises with no fancy terminology or condescending attitude. You're sure to be motivated and energized by Bob Harper and Kim Lyons (just like the contestants from seasons 2 and 3). This DVD also includes 24 minutes of low-fat recipes and Biggest Loser success stories.
Workouts require 3 to 15 lb. dumbbells and a stability ball. A 3 to 5 lb. medicine ball is optional. ©2006.
