Ready to get moving?  This is a more advanced workout and not intended for beginners.  However, you newbies may find a move or two that you like.  It is a great mix of toning exercises combined with burst of cardio to keep that heart rate pumping. The only thing you need is a set of dumbbells and you will be good to go.  As always, before doing this or any other fitness program, you should consult with your doctor before starting.
