Certified instructor description:
Cathe's first-ever stationary bike workout. It combines her legendary energy with detailed cuing and straight-forward motivation (no yelling, just lots of sincere, friendly encouragement). Each five-minute segment features a different workout technique. They range from "light standing with intervals" to "heavy hill climbs," from "rolling hills" to "jumps with hovers." Cathe's no-nonsense cuing includes simple technique tips plus lots of workout options (e.g. "now don't lean into the bike," "you can put your hands behind your back if that's more comfortable"). High-energy soundtrack. ©2011.
