Certified instructor description:
A comprehensive, all-medicine-ball workout led by an enthusiastic, very high-energy instructor. The ball intensifies the cardio, adds resistance to the aero/tone intervals and amplifies the toning. It's a well-designed program designed to use the ball in a safe and effective manner (e.g. maintaining control by holding it close to your body for fast-paced moves, engaging your core by holding it further away during slower exercises). The movement variety is sure to keep your muscles challenged. You'll move the ball in every direction, every tempo and every plane (and sometimes simply roll it on the floor...). Requires a 2 to 8 lb. medicine ball. ©2008.
