The experience: How do you say "Holy soccer balls, that hurts" en español? You'll be searching for the answer during this relentless workout that blends Latin-Caribbean dance moves with soccer-inspired athletic drills. Cuerpaso, which means "the ultimate body" in Spanish, is the brainchild of trainer Tadeo Arnold, who created the high-intensity exercises (rotating squats, jumping toe touches, etc.) to burn fat and sculpt lean muscle. If this is how Brazilian models get their killer beach bods, I don't resent them, because they've certainly worked hard for it. How fit you need to be: Fitness freak. -C
