This is amazing!
on September 11, 2013
I really don't enjoy working out, so I thought I'd keep myself interested by trying new things (bellydancing fitness DVDs, dance fitness DVDs, pilates, yoga, etc.). I previously used the Ballet Beautiful series, and although I still love it, I feel like it's more of a workout and less of a dance experience.
When I started this DVD, I started with the first option: Swan Lake Arms. I was worried it would be 10 minutes of grueling arm workouts, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was more of a stretch in combination with the arm movements. Nicky moves quickly through the routine, and I enjoyed the pace because 10 minutes passed as if it was nothing! I decided to do a few more sections from the DVD, and I really felt like I was dancing, not working out. The movements were so fluid that it felt effortless. At the end of the workout, I was certainly out of breath, but I wasn't aching anywhere like I usually do after using other fitness DVDs. I was a bit worried that maybe I hadn't worked my muscles as hard as I should have.
Then the next day arrived. My abdominal muscles were aching in that good, you-really-did-an-amazing-workout-yesterday sort of way.
I'm really looking forward to using this routine regularly, as it makes working out easy and fun. I'd say if you enjoy dance, or if you want to find a fitness video that makes exercise fun and easy, you'll probably want to check this out. Thanks Nicky!
