I picked up Balletone - Center Moves a few days ago at Half Price Books, and was disappointed when I got home to find it had been poorly reviewed on Amazon. Too fast, they said, too many unexplained ballet movements.

Well, since I have no background in ballet, and I am the *worst* at moving quickly or anything like, well, center moves, I worried. But I did the video yesterday anyway, and was delighted to find it a really graceful, dancey cardio workout, which had me gleefully moving and stretching for a sweaty forty minutes.

Actually, there are very few ballet terms used in this video, and those that are are explained. The workout is basically composed of a series of movements which are gradually added on and rehearsed, until by the end you find yourself doing an entire little routine. In that sense, it can be a bit boring, since you do the same movements many, many times over. However, that's also a chance to learn the movements better, and to get to the point (if not on the first viewing, then on the second) where you don't have to think about them anymore.

Balletone - Center Moves also incorporates little strength moves (especially leg lifts) and side stretches into the routine. This does mean that you don't have non-stop movement, but you do get to work on balance, which is also part of being fit.

In short, I liked it, I can see myself doing this video again with pleasure, and I think it's a great companion to the more static ballet-based workout programs.

I've found I can maximize the toning effect of this workout from using proper ballet form, which was hard in the beginning because I was so out of shape! But now I'm seeing results after just 2 weeks in the shape of my upper arms and legs, as I whittle away the fat, argh. Ballet and other dance forms are my comfort zone, and I find yoga or running harder as I get back in shape after 8 years of being fairly sedentary. I guess my body's familiarity with ballet (muscle memory?) allows me to work harder/get my heart rate up and keep it up more than with other cardio workouts or yoga, which all tire me out quite quickly. My goal is to get my cardio fitness back on track in my ballet comfort zone and then tackle other types of fitness routines later. The instructor really knows her ballet, but she keeps it simple for people who don't. This workout is my answer, along with Jennifer Kries and the Method.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not in the best shape, which is why I picked up this DVD. It sounded like a nice change from the hip-hop dance cardio workouts I've been doing.

I made it maybe 5 minutes, for no reason other than it was way too fast. The moves require a great sense of balance, which I found hard to maintain when I was trying to do a move just introduced at top speed. There was also no time lapse between the feet movements and the arm movements; they were both introduced at the same time, so by the time I figured out what to do with all my limbs, the move was changing again. At that point, although I hadn't even gotten my heart rate up, I was too frustrated to continue and turned the DVD off.

I would NOT recommend this for beginners!
