Certified instructor description:
Led by Amy Bento, it's a truly creative medley of varied total-body exercises. Each of the five 10-minute segments focuses on a different workout technique (you can play the sections separately or program them to play in any order). The segments are: aero/tone intervals, ab tightening, upper/lower-body toning, kickbox aerobics and yoga. Each section features a targeted series of fast-paced movements (with lots of tempo, body-position and intensity variations). Amy's perfect form and one-on-one cuing is great — like you, she's having fun while she's working hard. Requires 5 to 10 lb. dumbbells. ©2009.
