Walking-based moves that use dumbbells and faster-paced “bursts” to increase intensity. The steps are super-easy to follow — mostly simple marches and jogs, with varying tempos and directions (nothing more complicated than lunges or step touches). It starts with an aero/tone segment that uses dumbbells to add resistance and tone your upper body. That's followed by a quick-tempo, pure-cardio section and then a standing, core-focused toning sequence. A unique element — Arizona-style desert scenery is superimposed behind Kathy and her age 20-ish exercisers (sort of like they're exercising outdoors). Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2006.
