What happens when you combine the intensity and focus you love about drill-based workouts, with the creativity of choreographed workouts? You get Dressed Up Drills!
Dressed Up Drills delivers cardio, core, and flexibility training in a versatile format that will give you plenty of mileage in your workout library: Composed of separate blocks, you have the option to complete it in one marathon challenge, or enjoy any of the numerous mixes that suit your daily goals and time frame.3 levels of impact and intensity are demonstrated (high, low, and in-between). Strategically designed to accommodate those who prefer more basic moves and those who crave more choreography by offering both a "just drills" and a "dressed up" pre-mix menu.
The cardio training is packed with straight forward, athletic moves (no grapevines or mambos in sight) that are repeated long enough to drive intensity, but change quickly enough to keep things interesting and fun! Once the basic "just drills" are mastered and layered in simple movement patterns, they are then "dressed up" in final 32 count combinations.
Core-focused body-weight training (both on and off the mat) follows the same formula by introducing various strengthening, lengthening, and balance components before piecing them together into continuous flowing patterns. Even the stretches get dressy!
A yoga-inspired sequence provides the perfect finish, and an optional faster version offers an even greater athletic challenge and gain in flexibility.
