The large appeal of the program is that is can be done at home and does not require the use of any equipment.
According to certified personal train Paige Waehner for About.com, the cardio workouts included in the program employ the use of high-intensity aerobic and anaerobic interval training with very small recovery periods allowed between exercises.
