Certified instructor description:

A fast-paced, non-stop workout with exceptionally varied intervals (in both the cardio and toning). Each of the five aero/tone cycles is completely different; they're all designed to build stamina, strength and endurance. The toning segments feature an ever-changing medley of proven classics — from squats, calf raises and dead lifts to push-ups, curls and isolation flies. The shorter aerobic sections range from kickboxing and “fast feet shuffles” to power jacks and plyo-tucks (lots of high intensity/high impact). Throughout, Cathe's cuing is clear and inspiring (“welcome the challenge!”). DVD “premix” feature has two pre-programmed shorter workouts. Requires 2 to 10 lb. dumbbells, a barbell and a 6-foot Dyna-band. A high step or Fanny Lifter (14inch; high) is suggested; a regular step will work. ©2005.
