Certified instructor description:
One workout is traditional fat-burning cardio; the other adds a toning benefit with dumbbells. Both programs are exceptionally well-cued and well-structured. The first workout is fast-paced and exceptionally diverse (with lots of multi-plane and multi-directional movements). Kelly Coffey combines familiar kickbox classics with innovative variations like “body shot/high elbow” and “double jab/slip.” The second workout is a little slower and more “controlled.” Kelly utilizes dumbbells throughout the workout — they tone your muscles while also increasing the aerobic intensity. Kelly starts with the basics, then adds-on the slightly more complex combos (often sculpting your upper and lower body at the same time). Requires 1 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2013.
