Certified instructor description:
Direct from the 1980's (remember those leg warmers?) this DVD has three of Kathy Smith's earliest workouts. “Body Basics” begins with upper-body toning and ends with classic, abs and lower-body floorwork. In between, you get straight-forward, low-impact aerobics. “Winning Workout” also includes both aerobics and toning. The mixed-impact aerobics is easy-to-follow and a little dancy. The toning is structured in three different modules — you'll work at one level for four weeks and then move up to the next module. “Fat Burning Workout” is just 38 minutes of low-impact, calorie-blasting cardio. its moves range from lunges and marches to simple cha chas and step crosses. All three programs feature corner-of-the-screen video insets that zoom in to emphasize correct form and positioning. “Winning Workout” requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells and 2 to 5 lb. ankle weights. ©1985, 1987, 1988.
