Four body-part-targeted sections plus a stretch segment; they all use the resistance band included with the DVD. The band adds intensity, encourages proper form and improves range of motion (even in the final series where the band forces you into deeper stretches). The sequences are fluid and fast moving, often working your upper and lower body at the same time. They include both classic Pilates exercises and ballet-inspired variations (with lots of level options, like different angles or band positions). The four toning segments are: core, arms/shoulders, legs/buttocks and total body. DVD can be programmed to play any segment in any order. ©2012.
