Certified instructor description:
Two very challenging workouts by a superb instructor. “Step, Jump & Pump” begins with non-dancy step aerobics followed by non-step aero/tone intervals. The higher-impact cardio intervals feature old-school favorites like “four knees,” “skater jumps” and “two leaps to the side” plus some intense “power blasts.” The toning segments are classic Cathe — basic, but tough, barbell/dumbbell body sculpting. It all ends with tough ab floorwork. “Step Blast” is non-stop step excitement. The moves start basic and end ultra-challenging (e.g. airborne plyo-jacks, tuck-jumps and more “power blasts”). Soundtrack features some recognizable vocal hit songs. This DVD has optional “premixes” of shorter/longer workout sequences. Requires 2 to 10 lb. dumbbells and a barbell. ©2003.
