As I stated before: I am a Heavy girl, and I don't have a lot of time: This will not waste your time: do not let your weight deter you from getting these. [or time!] And then supplement them with leah Sarago's ballet body downloads. [again just do a google, you'll find them and they work hand in hand with the dvds].

Regarding the dvds:
Leah will slay you dead - and the beautiful part is that just when you think your thighs can't take anymore, guess what: glute time! and then rinse and repeat. The sequencing is magical, and just enough work and holds for you it to make a difference. Leah Sarago knows what she's doing and the results are nothing you've never seen - because you actually DO see them

[please note: Leah does work the thighs a LOT - so if you are prone to "bulking" I strongly suggest you do a good 15 minute stretch everytime you use this dvd. It helps your muscles develop properly, especially your glutes, which you work a lot anyway].

Your heart rate will go up, your legs will look fantastic. There is are rotations available to get maximum results. Again, regardless of your age or size or time, this will do the trick. [and supplement with the downloads! 93+ and counting!].

I always say Leah is love and I LOVE these dvds. Buy them. Do them. Get Results.
I am, and Ive lost almost 100lbs.

I am a life long exerciser and have tried every type of workout. I've become a big fan of the barre workouts in the last two years. I wanted to get away from high impact exercises and yes-- bulking from heavy weights although the experts say that heavy weights don't bulk you up (just observe how Cathe's physique has changed since her STS series-- she looks much bulkier and thicker than she used to). Perhaps its the shape of the muscle that heavy weights create that gives that impression, but in any case, I much prefer my slender physique since I switched to barre workouts. Variety is important to keep things fresh so I'm consistently seeking new challenging advanced Barre workouts to add to my rotation, and what a find this has been! I love everything about it, the slower pace, which allows for greater mental focus in working deep into the muscle, the count system and number of exercises per set (mostly 3 sets of 8 before changing), which I find perfect, as knowing when the set will end gives you permission to push yourself to your very edge of fatigue rather than conserving your energy to make it through the whole set, a highly efficient way to change the shape of a muscle quickly. The moves are slightly different than those in the other barre workouts, for example she use a unique pattern of circular side rotations and angles that elongate the hips. I appreciate her calm voice-over and form pointers and find the music hypnotic and complementary to the focus required, but an option to do the video without music is available. I bought all 3 of her DVDs and each one is professionally executed and effective and offers something new from what's out there. I highly recommend this DVD but will require modification for beginners until they grow stronger.Read more ›

I am a huge fan of the Bar Method, Physique 57, Lotte Berk, and the Tracy Anderson Method Mat Workout. I do some form of bar every single day, so I'm about as familiar with it as one can be without taking classes outside the home. I had never heard of this Ballet Body series so I was really excited to receive it in the mail. It was fun to do and was easy enough to follow, but I never felt that intense burn in my legs like I do with some other dvds, namely the physique 57 and bar method dancer's body. Also, later in the day I noticed my knees sort of ached, which is very unusual for me. I'll definitely give the video another chance, but if it yields the same results the dvd probably won't make it into my rotation.

I consider myself to be an advanced exerciser, but have never done any of Leah Sarago's workouts before getting the three Signature Series DVDs. I had heard such raves about her downloads and these DVDs on the Video Fitness forum, though, that I decided to give them a try. Although I have done workouts like Booty Barre, Rockin Models, Physique 57, and Core Fusion before, I had been worried that the Ballet Body workouts would be too advanced for a newbie like me. While they are definitely challenging, they are fun and tough -- and I'm so glad that I got them!

As other reviewers mentioned, the Lower Body workout will have you shaking, but in a good way! It's tough, but you can start by taking more frequent breaks if you need to or by doing half the reps. This particular workout is divided into half standing work and half mat/floorwork. The workout runs about 54 minutes long, and you'll need a mat and a chair or ballet barre to do it.

One of the only negatives in this and the Core workout is that sometimes I had a hard time seeing the angles and positioning of Leah's body. Instead of shooting her straight on, the camera sometimes shot from a side view, which made it hard for me to see the exact placement. I'm hoping that as I do this DVD more, though, I'll be able to make sure that my positioning is correct.

On her website, Leah also has posted various rotations for using the DVDs. (I would include the link here, but usually Amazon won't allow you to include links in reviews; if you look at the product description above, though, you'll see it.) Here is a basic rundown of some of the rotations:

BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE:
Day 1 Lower Body
Day 2 Cardio for 30-40 mins.
Day 3 Core
Day 4 Cardio for 30-40 mins.

Yes a chair is good enough or the back of a couch.
