Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel puts her money where her wisecracking mouth is. Her Body by Bethenny workout is an excellent, well-balanced yoga-focused workout that anyone at any level of fitness can try and gain results from. Frankel, who's written several guides to being a "SkinnyGirl" and has gained fame as a celebrity chef, reinventing fattening traditional recipes to be lower-fat and more healthful, works the exercise portion of her sleekness every bit as much as the diet. In Body by Bethenny Frankel works out, and kibitzes, with yoga instructor Kristin McGee in a 40-minute routine that will be familiar to anyone who's taken a basic yoga class, yet which manages to be extra challenging with its brisk pace and levels of suggested poses. Frankel fans will laugh out loud when in the middle of doing the challenging workout herself, she cracks wise like she does on her reality TV shows. (When McGee demonstrates "back namaste" pose, with the hands held together, as if in prayer, up the middle of the back, Frankel says, "So I can say I did something religious today.") The rest of the workout is a short but challenging weights/strength-training section, and a bonus five-minute "Booty Blast" that features bun exercises that can be done anywhere. Taken altogether, the workout is challenging, enjoyable, and doable by almost anyone--and the hour really flies by. Bonus features include some of Frankel's mouthwatering recipes, including her deliciously updated version of spinach-artichoke dip. Namaste, SkinnyGirls. --A.T. Hurley

Customer Reviews

The yoga portion is a great workout!
Lindsay S. Nixon
I still love it for those days when I don't feel like challenging myself to much, plus I love Bethenny and the humor she adds to the workout.

The yoga segment is at an intermediate level and REALLY works your body.

Even though I am a fan of the series, as well as a fan of Bethenny, I always go into a purchase with reservations, but I was hearing good things about the program and I decided to buy this.

The DVD has a lot on it. The total work out length of her progam is just under an hour, and the instruction is led by Kristin McGee, with Bethenny following along with interjections and her dry wit here and there.

In the yoga segment which is about 40 minutes, the poses are explained with nice detail, and modifications are given when needed, and even a tip here and there if you are feeling abititious. The setting looks like a loft apartment and the music is just a new age style, typical for this kind of workout.

On occassion there will be a flash of words...a word bite if you will, that will tell you the benefit of what you are doing.

I have several yoga dvds, and I do enjoy this instuctor quite a bit, just for the fact of her details during the instruction, and her giving you information in down to earth manner. She is very encouraging, and is always looking at yoga as an experience.

The second part is a series of weights. Its about ten minutes in length. This is also taught by Kristen, and it's pretty basic exercises, but I think again it's solid instruction on how to do them and correct form. I think it could be a bit longer, but if you feel ambitious, you can always play it twice. I think keeping it at ten is good for someone that doesn't have a lot of time but you still want to do something.

The third is called the booty bonus. Its very short, roughly about 5 minutes, but taught by Kristen with the same informative instruction. This doesn't require any weight so you can do these anywhere.

Format: DVD
Body by Bethany features a 40 minute intermediate yoga workout that will strengthen and tone your entire body including abs, glutes and arms. This workout DVD will help you increase your flexibility and balance. Also included on Body by Bethany is a 10 minute strength training segment to sculpt lean muscles and increase your metabolism and a five minute Booty Blast to learn fun moves that will help you have a tight, firm behind (who doesn't need one of those?).

While I'd class this DVD as more an intermediate yoga workout, it does include modifications for those that may not have the flexibility or the stamina to follow the routine precisely as it's shown. Bethenny encourages a down to earth approach to exercise that will fit your lifestyle no matter your size, shape or fitness level. She feels you are a true skinnygirl when you feel your healthiest and encourages modification of the routine to make it work best for you. You will need light hand weights and a yoga mat to complete these workouts.

Also included with this DVD is a bonus cooking segment, a recipe booklet from Bethenny's Skinnygirl Dish, and bonus workouts from Pilates for Beginners with Kristin McGee and Exhale: Core Funsion Pure Arms & Abs. I'm looking forward to trying the Brownie Cookies soon!

I really enjoyed Body by Bethenny. It offered a more intense workout than many yoga workout DVD's I've seen. I had to use the modifications several times through the workout because I don't have the flexibility I did when I was younger. I definitely felt the adrenaline rush with this workout and recommend it to anyone who is looking to step up the pace of their yoga workout.

Format: DVD
NOTE: I received a free copy of this DVD to review for the web site Metapsychology Online Reviews; you can read a more detailed version of my review on that site.

Prior to trying this DVD, I was unfamiliar with Bethenny Frankel; apparently, in addition to having appeared on THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK CITY, she has authored several "Skinny Girl" series book titles. In this video, Bethenney is joined by popular yoga and Pilates instructor Kristin McGee, and in fact it is Kristin who actually leads the workouts, although she and Bethenny banter back and forth, with Bethenny frequently suggesting modifications for the moves.

From the Main Menu of the DVD, you can select "Workout Features," which gives you several options:
* Play All (55 minutes)
* Yoga (40 minutes)
* Strength Training (10 minutes)
* Booty Bonus (5 minutes)

The yoga practice is strength-focused in nature. Throughout, Kristin and especially Bethenny talk about how the poses target muscles of the lower body in particular. Kristin begins with three full rounds of sun salutations, adding on high lunge, warrior 2, and reverse warrior. As the practice continues, she works in some lower-body focused flows and includes some more challenging postures such as side plank and half-moon. Kristin also displays a balance pose (tree), a backbend (wheel), and an inversion (shoulderstand), although Bethenny shows modifications for each of these postures. Kristin instructs this routine well, offering mirrored cueing and plenty of form pointers. However, it is not appropriate for those new to yoga given that the difficulty level of the poses is more advanced beginner to intermediate.
