Certified instructor description:
Get ready to bring Work It Dance and Fitness Studio's perfect blend of dance and fitness techniques into the comfort of your own home. This unique series of total body workouts are not only fun to do, but will have you burning fat, building muscle, and feeling more confident than ever.
Tone & Tighten utilizes hand weights (or soup cans!), resistance band exercises, and floor work to target the entire body. After each muscle group is worked, through high repetition using a small range of motion, it is alternately stretched to elongate the muscles.
T&T creates muscles that are toned and lengthened, not big and bulky. After just a few weeks legs will look leaner, butt will look firmer, abs will become stronger, as shoulders, arms and chest become defined. (who doesn't want that for summer!) You will also burn away fat as T&T keeps you feeling challenged throughout its workout.
