Certified instructor description:
A true total-body toner. These high-rep exercises target every body part with varied moves and diverse equipment. Each segment features a different sculpting sequence. They range from gym-style classics to Cathe-intensified variations (e.g. using unique body positions or heavier-than-usual dumbbells). The moves include both isolated and multi-muscle routines, sometimes performed at near-cardio speed. In addition, Cathe always matches the equipment to the goal (e.g loop bands for inner thighs, very heavy weights for single arm rows). Has a high energy, pop music soundtrack. Requires several sets of dumbbells, a resistance band, a loop band and gliding discs (or paper plates). ©2013.
