The first workout is for kids ages 8 to 12. The second is for you to do with your children as a family. These are not just “playing,” both programs have a variety of “real” exercises with Denise's legendary enthusiasm (“just do the best you can”). The kids' routines have a dance orientation; from “hula hoop” and “bicycle” to grapevines and kickboxing (plus push-ups, crunches and even some basic yoga). The family program is also super-fun; it includes interactive exercises like tossing a basketball or helping each other stretch. ©2004.
