Certified instructor description:
Two separate workouts — a challenging interval-cycling program and a superbly designed off-bike toning segment. The cycling section is a classic “spinning style” workout — fast/slow intervals with lots of motivation and focus on technique. The toning workout does not require a stationary bike all. It starts with basic exercises and progressively “layers on” more intense modifications in varied, multi-muscle-group routines. It requires an X-ertube and a stability ball; a medicine ball is suggested. ©2005.
