Certified instructor description:
A no nonsense series of easy-to-follow aero/tone intervals led by “The Biggest Loser” trainer. As always, Jillian is definitely “forceful,” but she's also surprisingly supportive (she really wants you to succeed). The cardio segments feature non-dancy, athletic moves like kickboxing, calisthenic jacks and plyometric jumps. The core-focused body-sculpting includes both standing and floor moves. Jillian skillfully alternates upper and lower-body exercises to keep your heart rate elevated and your blood pumping. For maximum results, each circuit is done once, then repeated at a slightly higher intensity (“with intention”). ©2008.
