This is a great 40 minute straight through aerobic workout routine combining both arm and leg movements for maximum effectiveness. It is a low impact aerobics class with some great additions to some classic moves. Having said that, I would say that it is not for the beginner, but for those ready to take it to the next level with regards to their fitness level.
Very professionally put together with a real fitness instructor as are the rest of the people in the class with you. The instructor Alison Davis is excellent with her instructions and cues, and the way she takes you through the routines by adding on new moves one at a time.
The routines are put together in a way that keeps you engaged and moves you on before it starts to hurt. Even though it is low impact there are plenty of squats and lunges and moves that keep your heart rate elevated for the whole workout. After the Warm-up the workout alternates between 2 cardio routines and 2 toning routines which you can use weights to make it more intense.
It is a straight through workout which means there are no sections to skip to or mix and match the routines - you press play and keep going for 40 minutes. It will make you sweat and will feel as though you have had a good workout, with a bit of fun thrown in. Watch your knees as on the squats and lunges or you can march instead and it will still benefit you - this is what I have to do.
