Certified instructor description:
Four separate 15-minute segments, each one features a distinct workout technique. They're all athletic and challenging, with lots of plyometric power hops and full-range-of-motion moves (exactly the “tools” you need to burn fat and build stamina). The first three sections use the step. You'll begin with sports-based movements like slalom jumps, basketball shoots and soccer dribbles. Kickboxing is next; it's less choreographed with an emphasis on lower-body-focused kicks and squats. Then it's super-challenging fast/faster (aerobic/anaerobic) intervals. The final segment is classic hi/low aerobics (definitely more higher-impact than low). Throughout, this 1999 IDEA Instructor of the Year, always shows clear cuing and perfect technique. ©2005.
