Varied, straight-forward moves structured in distinct segments. By programming the DVD to play the segments in any order, you can match the workout to your body type (or your schedule, or your personal preferences). You get three toning sections: upper body, lower body and abs. They all feature effective progressions that build in intensity. The cardio segment also varies in intensity — cycles of: aerobics, a faster-paced “blast” and a recovery period (often higher impact but a lower-impact option is also shown). For quicker results, you can add any of the bonus “amp it up” sections: kickbox, super slow toning or power yoga. Requires 3 to 10 lb. dumbbells. ©2006.
