TRIM & TONED TUMMY: Take your ab workout to the next level with the sculpting loop. It gives extra-defining power to crunches, curls, and twists to quickly trim and tone your tummy.
LOWER BODY MAKEOVER: Use the loop to makeover your entire lower body while burning off excess calories with exercises that are designed to sculpt muscles AND blast away fat.
BELLY FLAB FIGHTER: Toning moves alone can't melt away belly bulges. You also need flab-fighting cardio – and this routine has it! Use it to define your waistline and develop flat abs fast!

A five-part aero/tone program that comes with a loop-style resistance band. The band is exceptionally easy to use and lots of fun. It boosts the intensity of the body-sculpting routines while adding a toning element to the cardio moves (e.g. side-to-side stepping with the loop around your ankles really works your inner thighs). You get a huge range of exercises — from squats to crunches to Pilates, from marches to jumping jacks to cross-country skiing. Each of the five 10-minute segments targets a different muscle group with different movements (you can program the DVD to play any segment in any order). One-on-one cuing by Jessica Smith. ©2009.
