Certified instructor description:
A fast-paced program that keeps you energized with intricate choreography and driving music. Not for beginners, this is a challenging workout that requires physical and mental commitment (but also rewards you with tons of fat-burning fun). It's an eight-count whirlwind of non-stop motion — jumps, kicks, lunges, turns, shuffles and mambos. You're on the step, off the step, around the step and over the step. Fortunately, Amy's excellent cueing and well-designed patterns make it all doable (as soon as one foot touches down, the other foot is precisely positioned for the next movement). In addition, Amy includes a 21-minute tutorial that carefully demonstrates every sequence in the entire workout. ©2013.
