Certified instructor description:
Easy-to-follow exercises deliberately selected — and cued —to make you really push it (in fact, the program's working title was "Push It!"). The format is super-simple. Billy starts with a moderate-pace, eight-count combo. After you're familiar with the pattern, you'll repeat the sequence three times at a progressively faster tempo. Billy also maximizes the intensity with wide-ranging, multi-directional moves (e.g. front-to-back, side-to-side). In addition, he includes some lower-body strength-training and even a few push-ups. Throughout, Billy walks among the class giving hands-on techniqute tips and lots of encouragement ("work it!"). ©2012.
