This DVD contains three cardio workouts, including Cathe's Rhythmic Step, Interval Max and Maximum Intensity Cardio on one DVD. 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.
This refreshingly advanced, all-step workout, is loaded with interesting and unique choreography that will keep you motivated from start to finish. You'll begin the workout with a very thorough warm up. It contains a mini combination, plus a series of dynamic movements to elevate the heart rate and prepare the muscles for the vigorous workout ahead. The warm up concludes with active stretching. Next you will start with your first combination, which is a refreshing blend of power and rhythmic dance movement patterns. This section definitely defines the flavor of the entire workout. Then you will move on to the second combination, which is a bit longer than the first. This combination features a fun up and back pattern, as well as the tap hop repeater which we are sure you'll enjoy. Then you'll learn the third combination, which features a tough, yet fun, intensity blast in the middle of the combo. You'll be sweating your way through some very unique and energetic movement patterns. Some feature moves include a hop kick on top with a jack knee exit, a rejuvenated drop squat, pendulum, cha cha mix, and a tap heel shuffle 3 move. The final cardio section is our special bonus feature, The Rhythmic Step Challenge! You'll be sweating your way through a non-stop, heart pounding zig zag medley of ALL the finished products put together as one long combination. No breakdown, no stopping, just 100% endless energy! You'll love it! Finally, you'll conclude with a relaxing stretch.

Maximum Intensity Cardio
Maximum Intensity Cardio is a 70 minute advanced aerobic/step workout with the emphasis on aerobics and endurance.
The first half of this video will challenge your cardiovascular system with a super charged high/low impact routine. The intensity of the hi/low starts out with moderate moves that rapidly get more intense. This section finishes with very challenging intervals that will test the endurance of even the advanced exerciser. The step portion of the workout continues to have cardiovascular demanding moves, but shifts your energy into a non-stop aggressive step workout. This step section will consist of three combinations that gradually become more intense by layering on power and variation. Your mind and body will love this cross-training combination. Mentally you are able to keep pushing because you shift your focus to a new movement style to free you from repetition. As always, Cathe saves the best for last, as she concludes with an all out step interval blast that will leave no doubt on why this video is called "Maximum Intensity." This workout should be alternated with Maximum Intensity Strength for a complete and balanced workout.
