Certified instructor description:
An effective mix of familiar classics and army-style obstacle-course exercises. Jessica Smith keeps you motivated with cue-ahead instruction, non-stop motion and military terminology (“your mission begins now!”). In addition to traditional jogs, squats, jacks and planks, you'll also “crawl under the fence” and “pull your weights out of the mud.” Each segment is different. The first is high-intensity cardio while the second features alternating intervals of aerobics and toning. The last three sections focus on toning a specific body area: upper body, lower body and abs (the programmable DVD lets you play any segment in any order). Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2010.
