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.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! A new favorite! February 13, 2012
By Colette
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic lower-body barre workout January 30, 2012
By Casey
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love barre work and I love working my lower body, so it is no surprise that I absolutely love this DVD. Leah's physique is inspiring, which motivates you to feel the burn and go just a bit lower in each and every plie squat. The exercises are well-choreographed; Leah alternates between quad (plie, parallel squats and lunges) and glute/hamstring work (foldover and sitbacks). The sequencing is truly genius, as it allows you to intensely challenge all of the muscles in your legs by giving the muscles rest in between each set. Most barre workouts - to my knowledge - work the quads until exhaustion first and then begin to work on the glutes. Once again, Leah's variations are truly unique, and it's those small differences and variations that make this DVD particularly challenging.

What I loved most about this DVD was that it concluded with the most wonderful 15-minute stretch, which felt great after all the quad and butt-burning!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the BEST! January 28, 2012
By Warrior
Format:DVD
I've been doing Leah's downloads for quite a while and can never stop singing her praises. Here, she compiles the best of her lower body work. You will feel this, everywhere in your lower body. She does not overwork the quads as many workouts do. Everything gets worked here and by the time you hit the floor to do bridge work, you'll be wiped out. It's all worth it because Leah delivers both in strength and aesthetics. You will not bulk but you will get a strong, leaned defined lower body. This is not a beginner's workout but you can build into it by doing half the reps. She helps you build strength fast, so it won't be long until you can do the whole workout. It will never be easy because you will continually refine your form and go deeper into position so you will remain challenged, and you'll look great coming and going!
