Certified instructor description:
It combines easy-to-follow walking moves with "lite" hip hop cardio. Amy is just having fun — moving to the music and burning lots of fat (no complicated choreography or raunchy lyrics). The workout has two segments. The first features funky/amped-up versions of familiar aerobic and walking favorites (e.g. a "down low" front-back move or a standard march with "big arms"). The second section brings the hip hop — old-school favorites like "running mans" and "throw downs." This part includes short intervals where Amy slows down the tempo to boost the power and emphasize the funk (it's actually harder than the faster segments). Energizing music and motivating instruction. ©2012.
