Certified instructor description:
Pure fat-burning aerobics followed by tried-and-true body-sculpting (with great cue-ahead teaching by an IDEA Instructor of the Year). An unusually well-structured program, it's clear that Karen has consciously designed each movement for a specific purpose. The mostly low-impact cardio fully engages your entire body, not just your legs (i.e. you're actively working your arms, not just swinging them around). The toning segment begins with proven standing and seated exercises chosen to incorporate both variety and tempo variations (e.g. pulses, holds). Then it's ab-firming floorwork — an effective mix of Pilates and classic crunches. A superb, no-nonsense workout. Requires 2 to 10 lb. dumbbells. ©2003.
