Certified instructor description:
Nearly 100 minutes non-stop intensity — step aerobics, aero/tone intervals and floorwork. Designed for the super-advanced exerciser, it's a true body-transforming marathon (or use the “premix” options to break it into three shorter/slightly easier workouts). You'll begin with straight-forward step aerobics — definitely tough but not overwhelming. Then it's power circuits — alternating intervals of step aerobics, anaerobic step blasts and standing toning (ranging from air jacks and plyojumps to wide/deep lunges and barbell-weighted squats). The ending floorwork features upper-body exercises on a stability ball plus classic ab training. Some vocal music. Requires 3 to 15 lb. dumbbells, a barbell, a stability ball and a 6-foot resistance band. Includes a 6-minute bonus cardio segment. ©2006.
