Certified instructor description:
Two 20-minute aero/tone interval segments followed by a flexibility routine. The variety is endless — from dance aerobics and kickboxing to sports drills and vertical leaps; from pliés and lunges to chest presses and curls. The high energy and counted-out reps are boot-camp-style, but Denise is never “in your face.” Instead, she motivates you with a positive, enthusiastic attitude (“use your power,” “you're a winner”). The first section is fat-burning-oriented with lots of fast-paced cardio bursts. The second section focuses on functional fitness; it's designed to build the strength used in everyday activities. Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2006.
