A solid aero/tone interval program featuring lots of direction, rep, rhythm and tempo changes. The progressions are all well-planned and smooth flowing (never complex, just “choreographed” to the music and the motions). Each series has the same effective format: high-intensity cardio followed by active rest and a body-sculpting interval. The aerobics range from jacks and jumps to kicks and mambos. The toning features traditional moves like lunges, squats, push-ups and rows. But it’s the modifications and thoughtful sequencing make them varied and fun. Workout is perfect for small space situations (Tracie is on an eight-foot diameter platform). Requires two sets of dumbbells (e.g. 3 & 5 lb.). ©2011.
