Ballet Beautiful-Cardio Fat Burn

Do not be fooled by the title of this video, if you’re familiar with the recent bar workouts, than you know how intensive and sweat drenching these ballet workouts can be.

 

Ballet Beautiful Cardio Fat Burn is the sequel to Ballet Beautiful Total Body Workout.  In this video,  Mary Helen Bowers (trainer to the stars such as Natalie Portman in Black Swan) will help you burn fat and get you a tight and toned dancer’s body, all from the comfort of your home.

The workouts are broken up into four, 15 minute fat-burning cardio intervals with mat exercises that focus on building lean, toned muscles in your abs, arms, butt and legs.
The program is divided into:
  • Core workout: A quick warm-up that will get you ready for the next set by slowly moving into a high-intensity cardio interval and ab workout.
  • Lower body: Focuses on toning inner thighs and sculpting the legs with extended cardio elements.
  • Upper body: Works on building an elegant ballerina posture with targeted arm exercises with a fast-paced cardio interval
  • Total body workout: Full body cardio workout that will burn calories, tighten and tone muscles.

The Ballet Beautiful Cardio Fat Burn video finishes off with an extended stretch, and a cool down that will have you actually looking forward to the next days workout.

We love that this video gets your heart pumping and gives results that you will feel from day one. Ballet Beautiful Cardio Fat Burn is a fast paced, energetic workout that will challenge you in a good way even if you barely bust a move.

Be Fit in 90

If you keep getting bored of exercise programs and stopping half way, then this next DVD is for you.

Be Fit in 90 is a unique weight loss and body strength program that takes you through steps, varying your exercise schedule all throughout the week. A mix of cardio, strength training and yoga flexibility, incorporating martial arts, will help you feel challenged every step of the way.

The DVD program comes with the following:

  • a set of 3 DVDs (1 for each month, each increasingly challenging as you grow stronger),
  • a workout plan with a different set of exercises each day so that you are not constantly doing the same thing over and over again and you don’t have to figure out what to do each day- it’s all pre-planned for you.
  • a fitness journal to record your diet and exercise to keep you on track and accountable.
  • a nutritional guide, because no exercise program can be successful without healthy eating habits and it’s wonderful that BE FIT creators recognize that.

Depending on your fitness level, this program can be challenging, but not impossible. If you haven’t kept your body in tip-top shape, this exercise program will definitely make you feel like you’re working for it. But within a month, you’ll be strong enough to enjoy the burn.

Denise Austin’s Fat Burning Walk

Exercise doesn’t have to be complicated to be effective and Denise Austin’s Fat Burning Walk – a low-impact walking workout DVD – is the perfect example of that.


All of the moves in Denise Austin’s Fat Burning Walk are simple: they’re all based on walking! Walking is a great way to boost your body’s metabolism and help burn off unwanted body fat without major stress on muscles and joints. The workout is divided into small sections:

  • Warm-up This section helps prepare you for the fun workout ahead
  • Arm Toning In this section you’ll walk and do coordinating arm movements that will help tone your arms.
  • Slim Sprints This is the fastest paced part of the workout. It’ll get your metabolism going so you can burn more calories throughout the rest of the workout.
  • Hill Climb Pretend you’re climbing a hill in this section to help sculpt your legs and butt.
  • Rolling Hills This section varies in intensity, just like if you were walking up and down hills. With moves like standing crunches, it focuses on your legs, your butt and your waistline.
  • Sport Star This section includes fun sports movements like punching, twisting and shaking to get your body slim.
  • Cool Down Slow down the pace and walk your heart rate back to normal in the Cool Down section.
  • Bonus 10 minute ab slimming routine This bonus section includes both standing and mat exercises to trim your tummy.

Denise Austin is upbeat and motivational throughout Fat Burning Walk. Her moves are easy to follow and the intensity is up to you because low impact options are shown throughout each section. The best part? At just 30 minutes long every mom has time for it!

This program combines a powerful cardiovascular workout with sexy latin dance moves to slim, sculpt and shed!

    I like the walk/fitness dvd’s – you can do them anytime, anywhere.
    I even take them on vacation with me for when I can’t walk outside for whatever reason.
