Full Backcover Description
Just like the contestants on NBC’s hit show, you too can rev up your fat burning furnace and experience dramatic weight loss in less time. Join ‘The Biggest Loser’ trainer, Bob, and show contestants for a 6-8 week program that beats the bulge one intensity level at a time. Begin with Boot Camp 1 and as you improve, add on Boot Camp 2 and 3 for a powerful workout that challenges every muscle with dynamic moves designed to give those unwanted pounds the boot!
WARM UP: Prepare your body for boot camp with athletic conditioning moves that get the heart pumping and the muscles warm.
BOOT CAMP LEVEL 1: Bob turns on the burn with upper and lower body strength intervals, then rev’s your metabolism with calorie-crunching cardio.

BOOT CAMPL LEVEL 3: Challenge your balance and fine-tune your physique using bands and weights to further chisel your newfound muscle.

You'll burn fat and build metabolism-boosting muscle with alternating segments of aerobics and toning. Led by Bob Harper, this program features actual show contestants of varying sizes and abilities. You'll get the familiar, proven moves you've seen on TV in three progressively more challenging sections. The DVD lets you start with the easier 30-minute program and work your way up to a full 55-minute sequence. The cardio portions range from marches and kickboxing to jumping jacks and power squats. The toning features time-efficient, multi-muscle training with lots of variety. Requires 2 to 10 lb. dumbbells; a medicine ball and resistance tubing are optional. ©2008.
