Certified instructor description:
A solid fat-burner that's actually <em>led</em> by the TV show contestants. That's right, the same successful weight-losers you admired on TV are now <em>teaching</em> the workout. It's a uniquely inspiring concept. Sure, the “instructors” sometimes struggle to complete a set or show a minor miscue. But that's part of the motivation — they're “real people,” just like you (sweating together, cheering each other on). You get five mix-and-match segments. The first two are pure cardio and cardio-with-dumbbell toning. That's followed by three targeted toning sections: upper body, lower body and abs. Includes lots of level modifications. Requires 1 to 5 lb. dumbbells and a stability ball; a medicine ball and resistance band are optional. ©2009.
