An easy-to-follow program that blends light dumbbell toning into mostly walking-style cardio. It's a time-efficient format that burns fat as it also builds lean muscle (which helps boost your day-to-day metabolism). This high-energy program is led by Debra Mazda, a plus-size fitness expert who went from 310 to 160 pounds (so she has a personal understanding of your weight-loss challenges). The aerobics are basic, but varied — marches, walks and kicks intermixed with occasional cha chas and side steps. The toning is incorporated right into the cardio (e.g. a simple bicep curl during a march). The workout ends with all-standing abwork. Requires 1 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2008. BV0202
