Certified instructor description:
A super-easy-to-follow step workout especially created for plus-size women. Lifting yourself up and down on the step boosts the intensity — and calorie burn — without complex movements (a step also lets you control your workout level by simply adjusting its height). The instructor, Debra Mazda, used to weigh 310 pounds. Now she's a size 12, but hasn't forgotten the importance of keeping the workout safe, simple and non-intimidating (“I was terrified the first time I did step”). Her moves are basic; her cues are clear and encouraging (“I know you can do this”). DVD includes a 15-minute step tutorial and a 9-minute bonus toning workout. All plus-size female class. ©2008.
