THE CARDIO FITNESS FOR BEGINNERS WITH PETRA KOLBER DVD addresses the needs of those new to exercise and demonstrates a basic athletic and dance-based, easy-to-follow programme that burns both fat and calories while strengthening the heart.

Choose from two ten-minute and two twenty-minute workout segments and you can start slowly before increasing your workouts. You can mix and match your personal workout by choosing any combination: Athletic Cardio (10 mins); Dance Cardio (10 mins); Athletic Cardio (20 Mins); and Dance Cardio (20 mins). There is also a Bonus Stretch (5 mins) to help keep your body long and flexible.

Progress at your own pace and treat your body to a gentle regime that is effective and comprehensive as you burn those calories and start to build a vital and healthy body that has the stamina necessary to help you through a busy day. Before long there will be a new, energetic and vital you!

Go carefully and have fun. Petra demonstrates moves to return to when you need to slow the pace without losing the momentum of the workout. Anything challenging should be tackled a little at a time but only exercise if it feels good and decide how hard you want to work out, stopping regularly to drink water.

Petra gives a good explanation of body benefits and how lunges, hamstring curls, marching, knee lifts and squats should be carried out safely. Dance movements include hip-shaking and shoulder rolls and you can burn off calories as you enjoy the step and tap movements.

Listen to your body, take on a little more each day and follow Petra's advice for bringing your heart rate down if you feel it is too much. Support your body; stretch your spine and regulate your breathing. It's easy when you know how.

You can have a healthier body simply by having fun, listening to great music and following Petra's guidance. There are lots of nice and easy movements you can fall back on if you are feeling too much strain. You can make the movements into your own dance and still have the benefit of professional advice. The Cardio Fitness For Beginners DVD is designed to get you moving and keep you fit.

Even if you have never lifted so much as a foot to exercise before or you are reluctant to start your fitness regime, you will find that Cardio Fitness For Beginners with Petra Kolber will give you the enthusiasm you need to benefit from a fun workout.

Lead Instructor and Choreographer on Cardio Fitness For Beginners is Petra Kolber with help from Jess Behrend and Elise Sievert. The DVD is Produced and Directed by Ernie Schultz; Art Director is Sonia Alio; and Music is by Yes Fitness Music.

Petra was diagnosed in 1999 with Hodgkin's Lymphoma but went into remission after eight months of intensive chemotherapy and radiation. She uses her ordeal to motivate others facing adversity, sprinkling her approach with compassion and humour. She believes people often need to get out of their own way to really soar in life. Movement is a tool to reach that goal. Every day is a gift and life is an unexpected road of miracles and surprises. Being in the best health possible prepares people for whatever life throws at them.
