A mix of Pilates and classic toning led by an experienced, super-energetic instructor. Each segment features exercises that target specific body areas: abs, upper body and lower body. Denise's cuing is clear and motivating. She always shows you exactly what to do and why (“this will get rid of that muffin top”). The abs section is true Pilates matwork. It uses a towel to assure correct positioning while boosting the intensity. The upper and lower-body segments emphasize traditional toning exercises like push-ups, bicep curls, squats and side-lying leg lifts (done in a fluid, “Pilates-style” format). Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2010.
