Full Backcover Description
In Denise’s new Personal Training System, not only will you get a workout that is right for you from beginner to advanced, you’ll also get the motivation you need to continue on your journey to a new, healthier you! In this workout, Denise takes you through a series of workouts ranging from low to high intensity. You can choose a pre-selected workout based on your skill level or customize your workout based on individual needs and time constraints. All the while, Denise is coaching you through every step of the way! This DVD includes 10 different routines from which to build your program:
CARDIO: Two 20-minute segments, low and high intensity. Beginners can burn fat and work up to a more advanced level, and those who already work out regularly can get an energetic fat-blasting jump start!
UPPER BODY: It tones shoulders, arms and lifts that chest with your choice of 10 minutes of low, medium or high intensity.
LOWER BODY: It targets trouble zones by firming up your legs, thighs and buttocks with 10 minutes each of low, medium and high intensity to choose from.
ABS: Denise shows you how to get her signature rock-hard abs in this 10-minute express workout! It targets your waist, upper and lower tummy (and it’s great for all levels).
STRETCH: An essential part of any workout, Denise shows you how to maximize results following each workout with a series of stretches designed to keep you flexible and fabulous!
DVD has programmable chapters.

Certified instructor description:
An unusually effectively designed program that makes full use of your DVD player's capabilities. It's Denise's usual enthusiasm and lots of proven exercises in a very flexible format. No complicated programming required; you simply choose one of three workouts from the first menu. The length of all three workouts is the same (with many of the same moves, so it's easy to follow). But the intensity of each series is different. For example, the cardio sections range from basic floor aerobics to aero/tone intervals with dumbbells. The toning also uses different techniques and sequencing (e.g. combination moves for high-intensity, supersets for moderate intensity and opposing-muscle-group routines for low intensity). You can also create your own custom workout by programming the segments individually. 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells required. ©2004.
