All-sitting workouts with an upbeat/lively instructor, a bright/colorful set and an obviously-having-fun class (a diverse, all-sizes, all-shapes, all-ages group). This is a solid series of mostly-upper-body toning routines designed to build strength and improve overall fitness. Jodi makes it easy with close-up video insets to show the technique for each move. The level and body-position options let you adapt the workout to your own physical ability. And Jodi Stolove's positive attitude and clear cuing provide great motivation. 1 to 3 lb. dumbbells are optional. ©1996.
