Certified instructor description:
Non-stop, no-gimmicks “dance aerobics” led by a creative and motivating instructor. It's a high-energy, fat-burning blast — just keep your feet moving and enjoy the ride. It has four completely different combinations. Each one features a well-sequenced series of playful, familiar moves (e.g. double jogs, flick kicks, pendulums, grapevines and heel jacks — often with a spin or bounce added for interest). Between each combo, you get one-minute, ultra-high-intensity “bursts” (e.g. air jumps, split jumps). Amy's cuing is motivating and clear; her moves are “athletic,” not “dancy.” The workout ends with ab toning that uses 2 to 10 lb. dumbbells. ©2010.
