Full Backcover Description
With the growing popularity of metabolic workouts, I’ve designed Super Cuts to provide you with a unique low impact metabolic circuit workout that mixes functional training with compound exercises, dynamic movement, variation of exercise sequences, angles, movement patterns, rep speeds and equipment use. You’ll keep moving from exercise to exercise in a unique undulating approach with very little breaks in between. The sequencing keeps the heart rate fired up while shedding body fat and shaping muscles. A light and moderate set of hand weights, resistance tubing, firewalker and discs will get you super cut in no time.

Certified instructor description:
A total-body toning program that's exceptionally fast-paced and fast-changing. In just 37 minutes, you'll do 30 separate combos. It's a well-planned mix of isolated and multi-muscle exercises. While the moves are toning-focused, they often incorporate a cardio element (e.g. up-tempo burpees on the gliding discs). Cathe also makes careful use of the diverse equipment to increase results (e.g. sit-ups intensified with resistance tubing around your feet). It feels like a “group fitness” class — high-energy exercisers moving to current pop vocal music. And, like a good fitness class, the between-move and between-equipment transitions are flawless. Requires multiple sets of dumbbells, a loop resistance band, resistance tubing and gliding discs (but paper plates will work). ©2012.
