Lower body muscles are real big. Big muscles that consume a lot of calories when you work them.
Lower body strength is also required for balance, healthy knees and ankles and great looking summer legs. Your clients will love and hate this at the same time.

Abs and Legs 3 Person Circuit
Set up three stations in a row; a lower body station, a core station and an active rest station.
Clients are to form handicapped teams of three. Each team member will start on a different station. The team will rotate (by tagging each other) once the client on the lower body station has completed 20 reps. Clients on the other two stations will continue their station until tagged to rotate.
The order of rotation is lower body to core, core to active rest, active rest to lower body.
