Certified instructor description:
A super-challenging aero/tone interval workout with an endless variety of fast-changing exercises. The moves evolve and the pace varies, but the intensity never drops — you're constantly burning fat and sculpting your body. While all four circuits feature multiple-muscle-group exercises, each one also has a specific focus (upper body, lower body, core and total body). Within each circuit, you get one-minute intervals with 15-second recovery periods. The cardio segments range from scissors and mountain climbers to plyometric hops and jacks (often holding light weights to boost intensity). The toning sections include both standing and floor routines. Straight-forward, no-nonsense cuing. Requires two sets of dumbbells (e.g. 3 and 10 lb.). ©2012.
