HIPHOP LATIN – In this workout, you do HipHop in your own style, with whatever energetic moves you have; just give your best with a combination of Latin.  The Latin style shows off your hip waves and shakes; so when you do the HipHop Latin combination, it oozes with energetic sexy moves with high impact and confidence.

MORE CORE…FOR LESS – Learn more of the bases of, and rationale for, core training.
