Certified instructor description:

You get five complete cycles — they're all superbly cued and fast-paced, with excellent transitions. They're like five “mini-workouts” — each cycle features distinct moves in the same sequence (aerobics, lower-body toning, upper-body toning). The cardio ranges from plyometrics and jumping jacks to agility drills and diverse step combos. The lower-body routines include lots of challenging weighted leg press variations. The upper-body moves are also tough — chest flies, one-arm tricep extensions and decline push-ups (the music even speeds up here to keep you energized). The pre-programmed “Premix” feature also lets you do a shorter workout focused on just specific body parts and exercises. Requires a high step, two sets of dumbbells and a barbell. ©2004.
