FitPrime: G-Force Vol 2

G-Force Vol 2 is another FitPrime G-Force workout. This one is led by trainer Carol Miller. I have never done a workout with Carol before. I liked her but not enough to seek out other workouts done by her. This workout is done a little differently than G-Force Volume 1. Carol has a few background exercisers. It is also set in a bigger Victorian looking studio. Plus, in this workout Carol and crew are all barefoot. Always a bonus for me. I love rebounder workouts that I don’t need shoes for. This is primarily a cardio workout with some lower body and core work. There no complicated choreography and there is even some non-bouncing cardio moves done on the rebounder. This is a bit more challenging than when done on the floor because the rebounder is an unstable surface. It is not the most intense rebounder workout I’ve ever done but it was a very good cardio workout, plus it was different and fun. I really enjoyed it and will be returning to it. My stats: 354 calories burned, I was in my cardio zone 69% of the workout and I “walked” 3898 steps. You wear weighted gloves in this workout to increase intensity. I could also wear a weighted vest in the future–that would punch up the intensity a bit more.

G-Force Vol 2 is 49 minutes; 3 minute warm up and 3:30 minute stretch. Equipment: rebounder, weighted gloves and a dowel or a long stick of some sort to use for balance. There are arm movements with the majority of the jump moves even if it isn’t mentioned in the breakdown.
