Certified instructor description:
Two workouts — fast-changing floor aero/tone intervals and high-rep body-sculpting that uses a step. “Boot Camp” features eight aero/tone cycles. Within each cycle, there are four one-minute intervals: floor aerobics, lower body, upper body and core (to optimize variety and work your muscles in distinct ways). The cardio is definitely tough, from power kicks to flying jumping jacks. The toning program, “Muscle Endurance,” uses a high step, plus barbells, to maximize the intensity of these classic routines. It alternates sets of upper and lower-body movements and ends with an all-ab section. Each high-rep series is a little different (e.g. you add a pulse, vary the range of motion, change the tempo). The cardio is regular floor aerobics; only the toning requires a high step, a medicine ball, barbells and 5 to 15 lb. dumbbells. DVD has “premixes” of short, pre-programmed segments (e.g. upper body only). ©2002.
