Full Backcover Description

Welcome to CRUNCH Fitness! Now you can get a Pilates body faster than ever with this revolutionary workout. Everyone knows that Pilates is great for creating longer, leaner, muscles. But we’ve taken Pilates to a whole new level by adding some unique “Burn & Firm” elements to this workout! We begin standing with standing Pilates exercises blended with some simple dance inspired moves for a cardio-blasting “Burn” segment. Second, we add light hand weights to gently speed up the total body toning and re-shaping effect of Pilates. That’s where the “Firm” comes in. Don’t worry, this Pilates routine is still low-impact, easy-to-follow, and won’ leave you feeling drained like traditional cardio and weight training. Best of all, because this program multi-tasks, it makes the most of every minute of your workout time. With Burn & Firm Pilates, you can finally get that sleek, lean, elegant body fast from a workout that leaves you feeling refreshed and revitalized. All fitness levels. A set of light hand weights and a mat are recommended.

Certified instructor description: Fast-paced cardio that smoothly incorporates Pilates-inspired concepts and movements. Elevating your heart rate with lots of four-limb movements, you'll burn fat as you focus on balance, control and core strength (e.g., a step-touch sequence that includes Pilates-style arm routines and ab contractions). It all ends with a solid series of traditional Pilates matwork. Both the aerobics and floorwork use light dumbbells to add intensity and improve body positioning. Ellen Barrett's Pilates-conscious instruction features easy-to-follow visual imagery cues (e.g., imagine your hips are in cement). Requires 1 to 3 lb. dumbbells. ©2004.
