Certified instructor description:
Lots of variety in three easy-to-follow aero/tone interval segments. You'll burn fat with the cardio while you firm your muscles with the toning (as you're energized by Bob Harper, Dolvett Quince and successful contestants from the TV show). It's all done in a simple one-minute-per-exercise format — you just keep moving for one minute, then proceed to the next routine. The first section combines traditional aerobics with functional fitness (moves that build strength for everyday activities). The next segment has an “athletic training” feel; it alternates higher-impact cardio with core-focused toning. Finally, “All About Reps” is a fast-paced series of squats, lunges burpees and jumps. Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2012.
