Certified instructor description:
Easy-to-follow programs demonstrated at three fitness levels. The targeted goals let you attack your own "trouble zones;" the level options let you match your own abilities. The three body-sculpting programs focus on specific body areas. "Abs" is mostly standing exercises like twists and circles plus a few floorwork moves. "Upper body" features proven favorites like bicep curls and pushups. "Lower body" combines classics like squats and lunges with innovative balance routines. The aero/tone workout intermixes intervals of basic cardio with upper/lower-body toning. Each program shows three levels - beginner, begin/inter or intermediate (e.g. no weights, 3 lb. weights or 5 lb. weights). Very detailed cuing. Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2013.
