While exercising can be good, I question this method of toning and exercising. It doesn’t state clearly what it does or how it helps you. The reviews on this method are few and far. It is not popularly talked about enough for anyone to recommend to the next person. I would consult a physical trainer before engaging in this type of exercise and spending the money to do so. It is only the individual and a physician who can know what exercises are best for him or her.
