Full Backcover Description

Cathe Friedrich is a pioneer in advanced step aerobics. She is credited with making one of the very first step aerobic videos in 1988, called Step N Motion 1. This video quickly became the hottest selling step video of the year and helped to start a movement that is known today as “power stepping.” Cardio Hits was Cathe’s first DVD and is packed with three of her favorite advanced step aerobic videos — plus a special bonus abdominal routine from Cathe’s Pure Strength: Back, Biceps and Abs.

You have the option of viewing each program in its entirety or mixing and matching segments from the different workouts. Each workout has been divided into convenient chapters to make mixing a breeze.

DVD has chapters.

Certified instructor description:

DVD includes three complete step-aerobics workouts and a bonus abs program. The three complete workouts are:

  • Workout 1: Power Max is a non-stop medley of hops, turns, propulsions and tempo variations. Includes unique moves like six-count pendulum, drop squats; and 60-degree hamstring curls,
  • Workout 2: Step Fit features an interesting mix of both new and classic step choreography. Some of the unique moves include flying angels, the rock press and power scissors (an explosive double-jump lunge move).
  • Workout 3: Step Works is a higher-impact program with lots of power/plyometric options.

The combos are intricate and very fast-paced (Cathe even suggests using only a 6-inch step so you can keep up).

The final bonus segment features straight-forward abdominal floorwork. ©1996 1997, 1998.
