Certified instructor description:

A no-nonsense aero/tone program that uses dumbbells — an updated version of the original “The Firm” videos. This time-efficient format is specially designed to burn fat as it reshapes your body. Each of the four segments can be done as a separate workout. One segment is pure kickbox cardio. The others feature the traditional Firm format: aerobics blended — or alternated with — dumbbell toning. While the format is classic, many of the moves have been modernized with creative modifications or options (e.g. instead of a plain lunge, you get a “power cross-country ski;” instead of plain jump, you get a trampoline-style, full tuck jump). Superbly led by Alison McLain. Requires 2 to 10 lb. dumbbells. ©2010.
