Certified instructor description:
Compact and effective, you get a calorie-burning aerobic section plus a multi-muscle-group toning routine. Designed to fit your personal schedule and goals, the DVD is pre-programmed to play either or both segments. The cardio section emphasizes movement and fun, not perfect form.
It ranges from grapevines, shuffles and repeaters, to cha chas, mambos and hip shakes (with lots of energizing arm patterns). Featuring all the newest techniques, the standing/floor toning is extra efficient because it works two muscle groups at once (e.g. an overhead press during a squat shapes your arms and legs). Beautiful, airy set. Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2005.
