An easy-to-follow workout with three goal-focused segments: aero/tone, balance and stretch. You can do just one section or play them all for a true total-body workout. The first program features classic aero/tone circuits — alternating intervals of fat-burning and body-shaping. The second section infuses a balance element into nearly every aero/tone exercise (e.g. an equilibrium-focused plié squat instead of a regular squat). The final segment is a flexibility-enhancing mix of athletic stretches and naturally flowing dance movements. Kathy is a 30-year exercise videos pro — her cuing is low-key, friendly and supportive. Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2011.
