This compilation of classical music is designed to accompany virtually any kind of exercise or workout. Forty-seven minutes of accessible, recognizable melodies from well-known composers-such as Handel's "Water Music," Prokofiev's "Classical Symphony 1," and Mozart's "Clarinet Concerto"-vary in tempo throughout the program to meet physicians' recommendations for optimal cardiovascular workout. An 11-minute cooldown completes the program. This compilation of classical music is designed to accompany virtually any kind of exercise or workout.
