What is THNL? Longtime fans and new friends of all physical ability will enjoy this fresh and exciting NEXT LEVEL workout series. The format & movement concepts are designed to showcase workout levels that meet everyone exactly where they are at, on their own personal journey. "Young and old, fit or floundering, my goal was to have our new friends and fans be confident getting off the couch and giving Level 1 a shot. At the same time, we want the Level 3 folks to be pounding away, working the hardest, pushing themselves through more intense moves. Level 2 is framed as the guiding fitness source of the workout, the standard by which you can aspire to, align with, or build from," says creator, Tony Horton, "do your best and forget the rest!"
"Change what you put in your mouth, how you move, and how often you move." Tony presents a raw, up-close & personal interview of his fitness wisdom from 40 years in the industry, the science behind his own transformation, and his celebrity client list.
"Your goal is to finish!" A lively tutorial session with Tony Horton & the cast as he introduces the Next Level series concepts, how to use the program, some of the physical requirements, and when to hit the pause button! Learn how to Level Up with Tony!
"Time to assess and get off this couch!" Tony provides a simple 11-step physical assessment class to help you orientate your levels of flexibility, strength, and mobility. Learn if your squat is stable, your plank is tight, and how to level up.
"If exercise isn't fun, don't do it." Tony & the cast work through all 3-levels of a vibrant plyometric routine, compounded with a balanced interval training component to spike the heart rate & blast calories. Pop squats, bear kicks, & gorilla burpees.
"The key here is to over-train. I'm kidding!" This full-body cardio workout asks you to find your gears & understand what your body's tempo can be with physical activity. As you find your way through, Tony triggers you to take it all into "High Gear".
"When it burns, you'll know." A spirited resistance workout to challenge your form & function, without heavy weights & high-speeds. This one asks for you to focus on the technique to accomplish each move, during a full-hour of exercise. Endurance!
"You're gonna use your body and gravity." An 11-minute core routine to strengthen the supporting cast of muscles at the center of your human body, obliques, abs, & glutes (at no extra charge). Anchor drops, V-ups, plank kicks, & a 100-bicycle burnout.
"Activation, activation, stimulation." Cardio meets isometrics in this 45-minute home workout with Tony and the crew. The pulses come fast as you isolate muscle groups and stimulate your heart & cardiovascular system. Can you make it to the water break?
"From your lower rib cage down to your toe nails." Have some fun with a mix of Tony's favorite plyometric lower body training moves, a cornucopia of fat burning techniques that build muscle. Get to know your quads and glutes like never before.
"Can you make it to the water break?" Work your way through this basic progression of cardio kickboxing and martial arts moves. Tony keeps your form in check as you punch and kick your way through 45-minutes of power. Keep that heart-rate up!
"Learn the basics before you come and play with us!" This workout is a more advanced progression than Tony’s MMA Basic Workout in this series, with no beginner level offered. These martial arts moves will keep you lean and fire up that heart-rate!
"You don’t have to sing it, you just have to do it!" Level 2 & 3 only, this is an advanced morning practice that builds on Tony’s A.M. Marching Orders routine. Progress through nine different moves over 3 rounds with an Olympic hurdler and a pro golfer.
"Simple, fun, break a little sweat and be on with your day!" Level 1 & 2 only, Tony wakes you up with a stretch & a laugh before teaching unique fitness moves that build energy in the body. Look for the Tony Scissorhands move & scoop those diamonds.
"We also call this one, My Three Sons." What happens when a fun cardio routine takes 66 minutes from start to finish? You do your best and forget the rest. All three levels are on fire in this one, mega-calorie burn and increased heart rate for sure.
"This is a hypertrophy workout." Hammer up, kids! This one is for your chest and back gains. Pull up bars needed, see if you can count how many pull ups Tony does in this session! Over or under 100? Reminder: He is over 60 years old. Still crushing it.
"AKA, Giddy Up." A full throttle workout. There are no demonstrations. We go, you keep up. You figure it out. Maybe about the fourth time, you’ll know what you’re doing. We’re just here to move, alright? Pick it up when Tony says, 'giddy up, full send!"
"A beautiful marriage!" All levels get ready, it is time for the low down. Combining cardiovascular exercise and resistance, this is two rounds of moves at :45 seconds each with added plyometrics. Don’t worry about speed, check your level!
"Activation, stabilization." This one’s about the connective tissues, the places where your bones and muscles link up and create your mobility in life. Tony welcomes a pro-golfer to this episode, & includes some resistance bands for supportive tension.
