You Tried It: Amy Dixon's Hard Core Definitions

Welcome to "You Tried It," a series of video posts from top trainers, who will share clips from their popular workout DVDs. Please try the moves outlined in the clip above and tell us what you think in the comments!

You might be familiar with our popular series, "We Tried It" in which Healthy Living editors try one of the myriad fitness classes on offer in New York City -- from the wacky to the hardcore. We have so much fun and we want to bring the fun to you as well.

This week, we have Amy Dixon leading us through a series of core-strengthening and toning exercises. Give it a try and tell us what you think ... did this workout help you? And if core isn't on your agenda for today, have a look at the previous videos we've featured. There's something for everyone!
