Get ready to shape up in style with the best new workout to do at home or on the run. Celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson has created a fantastic circuit workout, inspired by TONE-Up music played with the phenomenal newest model of LG’s fitness Bluetooth headset.
Most Americans have a hard time working out without music inspiring them to jump and squat. Tunes are a tool that will keep you going when you are tired, and will push you when you think you do not have the time to do it. Anything is possible when it comes to a strong beat and this dynamic method.
The Beverly Hills-based celebrity personal trainer is shaking it up with the best in technology and determination. What is different about Peterson is that he cares as much about the movement of the human body as he does about curating playlists that are diverse and full of fun.
“The music is the motivator. So many people think that their workout is like some strange game of musical chairs. The music stops and they stop and sit,” said Peterson. “With this headset you are not attached to your phone and you can hear it with ease. You are truly connected to the workout with the music driving you. You will do more with music than on your own.”
Gunnar has teamed up with LG to design the LG TONE-Up workout – a circuit-inspired fitness regimen designed to be performed while wearing the LG TONE Active+ or LG FORCE headsets, ensuring that neither a lack of music – nor sweat and wires – get in the way.
“I’m always looking for headphones that’ll make my clients work just as hard when I’m not there, so they need something comfortable that keeps the music going, but also gives them freedom to perform some of the challenging moves in my workouts,” the trainer says.
The headset truly is a wonder. They stay in place for even the most intense movements such as squats and lifts. And, best of all they are water and sweat resistant. The built-in external speakers on the LG TONE Active+ and Qualcomm aptX™2 on the LG FORCE are top-notch.
The fantastic LG TONE-Up workout consists of ten moves that are repeated in a circuit for as many rounds as possible, and can be done by anyone in various settings. It is easy to learn and no matter your age or sex it can be accomplished. And for those moves that typically require weights you can substitute using other items in your home like cans of soup or water bottles. There are simply no excuses.
