Designed by celebrity trainer Sebastien Lagree, each session burns 500-800 calories and constantly pushes you to your limits.
In addition, each exercise targets your slow twitch muscle fibers which are scientifically proven to burn the most fat. The entire workout is spring based so springs keep constant tension on slow twitch muscle fibers which boost metabolism for hours after the workout making it one of the most intense yet low impact workouts out there.
