Certified instructor description:
A straight-forward total-body workout with a clear Christian orientation ("In Jesus' name we train"). It's the perfect way "to improve the body that God gave you" while also praising the Lord. The moves are easy to follow and effective. You'll begin with time-efficient body-sculpting routines that work multiple muscle groups at once (no equipment required). That's followed by a fast-paced fat-burning segment — mostly higher-impact, but with lower-impact options. Then it's down on the floor for a varied series of classic abdominal exercises. You'll finish with a super-relaxing set of deep-muscle stretches. Jimmy Peña's cuing is supportive, clear and inspirational ("train the body that carries the soul"). Fyi: The title's "33-day program" and "33 minutes per day" (without the warmup) ties to the 33 years Christ was on earth. ©2011.
