Certified instructor description:
Classic “The Firm-style” body-sculpting intermixed with Pilates and balance exercises. Tracie’s well-sequenced selection of moves, tempos and techniques is both effective and motivating. Each focused segment features a complementary series of varied movements (e.g. traditional squats, single-leg squats, three-count squats, “hip opener” squats). The standing toning is truly Firm-style; it often works multiple muscle groups using multiple dumbbells (each segment has a graphic showing the weight level and body parts being toned). Calm, direct, one-on-one cuing. Requires at least two sets of dumbbells (e.g. 3 and 5 lb.). ©2009.
