Full Backcover Description

Until now, you have always had to choose between high-intensity-cardio or low-impact-exercise workouts. But now, with Athletic Training, you’ll get the benefits of both at the same time.

Depending on the exercise, you’ll vary your step height while you challenge you body both on and off the step in a variety of ways. You’ll do compound exercises along with isolation exercises, work the upper and lower body simultaneously and separately, do low-impact cardio with and without discs and bands, and even throw a superset in here and there for complete exhaustion.

Athletic Training is a low-impact circuit workout that takes fitness circuits to a whole new dimension. Be prepared for non-stop action!

Certified instructor description:

A super-diverse workout that uses dumbbells, gliding discs, tubing, bands and a step. The variety challenges your muscles in multiple dimensions while maximizing overall interest. The step aerobics is low impact with lots of repeaters, lunges and air squats. The toning section includes high-bench exercises for the legs using dumbbells and tubing for additional resistance. Then it's time to break out the gliding discs for core strengthening, balance work and upper-body toning. The next section features “firewalkers” and one-arm rows with the band. All the strength routines intermix both compound and isolation exercises. Cathe's moves are easy to follow, but tough — they're designed to get results. Requires a step bench, gliding discs, resistance tubing, a challenge band and two sets of dumbbells. ©2011.
