Certified instructor description:
<br>Intermixes intervals of traditional Tae Bo kickboxing with isometric toning segments. It's designed to burn fat, build lean muscle and improve balance. The isometric routines are truly unique. You'll do eight counts of an aerobic combo and then stop and “hold” that pose for another eight counts (e.g. balanced on one leg with the other extended in a kick position as you contract your abdominals). It's tough … and it engages multiple muscles while increasing body awareness and control. Throughout, Billy Blanks' improved cuing is clear and specific (e.g. “anchor yourself with your hamstrings and quadriceps…”). ©2003.
