This DVD contains three muscle conditioning workouts workouts, including Cathe's Power Hour, Maximum Intensity Strength and Body Max (Body Max contains both cardio and weight training). As with all of our DVDs, you can easily program your DVD player to choose only the sections of each workout that you want to do. You can even mix one section from one workout with another.

Power Hour

This total body muscular endurance workout is sure to leave no muscle untouched or under worked. To get the maximum benefits out of this workout, you'll need an adjustable barbell and various weighted dumbbells. We're sure that you will love the new and unique soundtrack that was specifically created for this energizing workout too. The workout is tightly choreographed to 10 songs. You'll begin with a warm up song, and then each song following that will target a major muscle group at a time and work it to exhaustion. To do this, each muscle group will engage in high repetitions and a series of various weighted movement patterns for the duration of a song. To get superior results, you will need to find the most challenging weight possible that allows you to complete each song yet still maintain good form and alignment. You'll complete the workout with a relaxing stretch. This workout promotes good posture, improved muscle tone, strengthens your core region (the body's center of power), and promotes functional fitness. It is an all around winner workout!


  • Warm Up - 5.5 min.
  • Strength Training Exercises - 40 min.
  • Abs - 6 min.
  • Stretch - 3 min.

Maximum Intensity Strength

Maximum Intensity Strength is a 75 minute advanced muscular conditioning video. This workout requires the use of a barbell (15 lbs. to 40 lbs.), dumbbells (5 lbs. to 20 lbs.) and a 8 to 10 inch Step. Cathe has structured the workout to target all the major muscle groups beginning with the larger groups first. Each muscle group is worked to exhaustion before moving on to the next. This super challenging workout concludes with an intense 10 minute abdominal routine. This workout should be alternated with Maximum Intensity Cardio (or any of Cathe's step aerobic videos) for a complete and balanced workout.


  • Warm Up with Step - 6.5 min.
  • Buttocks/Legs - 18.5 min.
  • Chest - 8 min.
  • Back - 7.5 min.
  • Shoulders - 7 min.
  • Biceps - 6 min.
  • Triceps - 7.5 min.
  • Abdominals - 10 min.
  • Stretch - 3 min.

Body Max

This 91 minute workout is a completely different type of workout with the emphasis on aerobics and endurance. A step, barbell and various dumbbells are used. This cross-training workout begins with 24 minutes of simple but intense step aerobics. The circuit section in the middle of the workout will provide you with a "shock your metabolism" effect since it consists of 5 cycles, each one moving quickly from high intensity step, to plyo step, to a very brief recovery and immediately into leg work with weights. The third section provides an all-out, non-stop upper body weight workout that is similar in style to "Maximum Intensity Strength." However, the focus is on endurance and the rest periods are shorter. Finally, if you have survived this far, Cathe will take you through a killer ab routine. The workout concludes with a relaxing stretch and features beautiful new age music which seems to encourage the release of any and all tension in the body and mind. Body Max is a cross training workout within itself. We suggest you use this on a day that you want to target and condition every major muscle in your body but also want to get an intense cardio workout.


  • Warm Up - 8 min.
  • Step Aerobics - 24 min.
  • Power Circuit Intervals - 19 min.
  • Cool Down - 2 min.
  • Upper-Body Muscle Conditioning - 34 min.
  • Stretch - 4 min.

Body Max February 6, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from CA United States  
Holy crap I just did this workout for the first time and it's tough! Not any breathers in this one, especially if you go all out in your weight selections. The step workout is on 2 risers, so it's an instant challenge. I love trying all of Cathe's workouts! So much fun!

A Fantastic Trio July 10, 2007
Reviewer: Maddy from Los Angeles  
I've been doing Bodymax on and off for years and I still find it to be one of the most fun, invogorating and challenging step classes around - probably because the tempo on the step portion is quite speedy. The workout in its entirety is intense and LONG. I love to break it up and create my own custom sessions using either the step and/or circuit part.

But one of my all-time favorites is MIS (Maximum Intensity Strength). It's a perfect way to lay a foundation of overall strength and it, too, can be easily broken into sections. Right now, I'm doing a 6 day a week rotation and I use the MIS legs as part of one day.

Power Hour is tough but it also cruises by fast because it continuously moves and it's choreographed to great music. By the time you realize just how cooked you are, it's over! But you will definitely feel it in all the right places later. ;)

good Value April 5, 2007
Reviewer: uk from uk  
These are older tapes bundled together.  Excellent for a change of workout.  Powerhour good killer on legs.  MIS allover and Max covers the whole body.
Maybe a bit older but they sure work.
