Certified instructor description:
You get alternating intervals of dumbbell-toning and fast-paced cardio. It's the legendary “Firm” format designed to shape your body as it burns fat. Each effectively sequenced segment includes a motivating mix of subtle tempo/movement variations (so they're interesting and easy to follow). This program's aerobic segments are non-dancy and easy to follow -- basic large muscle movements designed to raise your heart rate. The toning sections are taught add-on-style; they're a diverse medley of straight-forward, body-sculpting classics. You'll start with a basic exercise, then progressively incorporate multiple-muscle moves (while always keeping your heart rate elevated). Classic Firm-style cuing — precise and no-nonsense. Requires two sets of dumbbells (e.g. 3 lb. and 5 lb.). ©2007.
