Customer Reviews

Excellent workout tape.
Linda K. Newman
If you're familiar with the Tracy Anderson Method, the results you get from Ballet Beautiful are very similar; you get long, lean muscles without much bulk.
Leanne
This workout will create long lean muscles just like dancers have.

I just got done doing this workout for the first time, and loved it! I've been doing Mary Helen's workouts for about the last eighteen months. I own all three of her previous DVD workouts, and last year, when I did just the Ballet Beautiful Total Body Workout and Ballet Beautiful Body Blast for about three weeks, I completely toned and tightened up, even though I was doing very little cardio at the time. If you're familiar with the Tracy Anderson Method, the results you get from Ballet Beautiful are very similar; you get long, lean muscles without much bulk.

After seeing a recent article about how Mary Helen trains some of the Victoria's Secret Angels (who are in amazing shape), I decided to do another Ballet Beautiful rotation, and will be working this one into the mix. I'll be doing these and Sylwia Weisenberg's Tonique workouts for a few weeks to see what happens, and will be sure to report back on my results.

When you put the DVD into your player, you have the option of choosing from two options: a Workouts choice (where you can play one of the two workouts or both with a Play All feature) and a Custom choice (where you can choose which order you do the two workouts in). Unlike some of the previous BB workouts that are broken down into multiple segments, this one has two main segments: 1) Total Body Strength and Cardio and 2) Total Body Toning. Each one is 30 minutes long. You also have the option of playing the workouts with Mary Helen's voice/cueing or with the music only.

This dvd is broken into two 30 minute workouts. The first is mainly standing arm work, sometimes using light hand weights, with a bit of swan arms thrown in. There's also a lot of stretching, particularly through the core. It's a relaxing workout that keeps you moving, but it's not challenging. I use it when I'm extremely sore from another workout and can't tolerate anything demanding, so for that reason it's a nice addition to the Ballet Beautiful routine.
The second workout is classic BB. Four sets of 8 for bridge, abs, inner thigh and outer thigh. It's extremely challenging. Mary Helen has also inserted a lot of isometric contractions (when you just hold your leg in the air for 60 seconds, for example), which are very difficult. The burn is intense! This 30 minutes is more challenging than anything of hers I've ever done before. I love it. Mary Helen is always mixing it up.
I've written before about how BB and the Tracy Anderson method 'fixed' my body after two years of dedicated Jillian Michaels workouts left me somewhat stocky, particularly through the thighs. Mary Helen and Tracy know how to give you long, lean muscles, and keep you unbelievably toned looking. Without changing my diet at all, I've lost 4 kilos since I stopped doing Jillian DVDs and started BB and the method three months. The weight has mainly come off my thighs and waist, and my arms look great too. My legs are so long and lean now! I can't believe how much my body has changed. My advice to anyone looking to get fit AND a lean dancer's body would be to avoid Jillian Michaels like the plague, and stick to DVDs like this one. Mary Helen knows what she's doing.

This is the third video of Mary Helen Bowers that I have used and loved! I had been exercising at the gym and running and then doing lots of Jillian Michael's videos. I am in my late 40's and one thing I have noticed with my workouts and with other women my age is that it seems to shift us more to bulk up--I have a real tendency to do this. While my husband loses weight with exercise, I put on weight with muscle, which is really not the look I am going for. The Ballet Beautiful series has been great at lengthening and toning my muscles--my husband has even noticed and commented frequently!

I must admit that this can be at times excruciatingly hard, all while she is just smiling away doing leg lifts. The workouts look like a joke--they remind me of ones Joan Crawford would do in The Women-but they are harder than most. I find that I do better sometimes in her other series by stopping the tape and doing extra stretches--especially with the out leg series as I have had troubles with my hip. I also want to say that these workouts have really helped me with knee and hip injuries I have gotten from running.

I love this workout and have become addicted to it. The music is sort of meditative, as is her demeanor. I have been recommending it to all of my friends, especially those who like Pilates. I also love that I can just do them for free (all you need is a mat and for some weights) on my own time and that each video can be broken down into 15 minutes, 30 minutes or 1 hour workouts depending on how much time you have. They are great for travel, which I do a lot of. I also am reminded of my ballet classes as a teen and it makes me want to improve my posture and form. Thanks Mary!
