"Terrific all-over toning routine" --Health
"One of the country’s hottest fitness programs" --Women’s Health

A quarter of a million people have transformed their bodies at exhale, the exclusive mind body spa. Now you can get these same results at home.

This power-packed workout combines focused strength-training and flexibility moves with high-intensity cardio for maximum calorie burn. Get sweaty and svelte as you lose weight while sculpting defined abs, toned legs, cut arms, and high, rounded glutes.

Five 10-minute segments target multiple trouble spots at once, providing a heart-pumping workout for the whole body. Use light hand weights for a more vigorous practice, or try the modifications to match your experience level and improve your endurance. Do as much or as little as you want on any given day. With Pure Intensity, you’ll get dramatic results--fast! Includes bonus stretching segment.

Recommended equipment: light hand weights and a mat

Husband and wife team and Core Fusion co-creators Fred DeVito and Elisabeth Halfpapp have over 50 years of combined experience teaching Pilates, Lotte Berk Method, yoga, and dance--disciplines that comprise the Pure Intensity workout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense Cardio as promised June 11, 2011
By Jenny G
Mountain Climbers.....There are a lot of them. They are very effective for working your core (and your shoulders while you stay in the pose), and also provide a nice cardio blast - but not something everyone enjoys. I personally love them and really liked this workout! I wasn't really watching the modifier during the workout but it appears she stays in downward dog and does some knee bends.

There are (6) segments of about 10 minutes each including the stretch section. While yoga poses are used throughout the DVD, I never really felt like I was doing yoga. You do need light hand weights - I used 2 lbs. The first four segments build on each other, the first segment starting slowly.

5.0 out of 5 stars truly effective without killing yourself September 4, 2011
By jenlynn
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let me preface this review with a little history. I am an 80's girl and grew up doing Jane Fonda and Kathy Smith videos. Over the years I have done lots of different videos: step aerobics, billy blanks (Tae-bo still has a special place in my heart for getting me back into shape after baby #3), kettlebell, jari love (still love her videos), and many others over the years. I love to cycle/spin and do elliptical for cardo, but love my dvds. I'm 40 and some of the videos are starting to be too much for me and make me too sore for days afterwards. I decided to try these videos because there was such positive feedback. I have never left feedback before, but I love these dvds so much I felt I needed to. This video is awesome! The workouts are effective and Im not too sore to function the next day. They get the job done!I have more ab definition than I have ever had with all the workout dvd's I have used in the past. I have realized its not about "bulking up", its about being lean and toned and sculpted. Try them!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Full Body Workout August 28, 2011
By Kymarie
This is the newest DVD of the Core Fusion series. When Core Fusion Cardio came out about a year ago I was one of the first ones to try it at the studio and I loved it! So when I saw they were coming out with a DVD I was ecstatic. Since all New Yorker's were stuck inside this weekend due to Hurricane Irene, I decided to give this DVD a try this morning and let me tell you I was sweating up a storm inside my own apartment!

Workout DVDs are not my strong suit, it is hard to get myself motivated when there is no one else there pushing me. But once the DVD started I was hooked. It was like I was taking a class at the studio. Some DVDs are very different from the classes that you would take at a studio but this one was just like being in class, I felt like Fred was in my apartment giving me a private session. The DVD is broken up into 6 sections about 10 minutes each. If you don't have a lot of time you can do one or two sections, or if you want a great workout do the entire DVD which is about 60 minutes. The 6 sections are:

Energy Moves - (10:10) Wake up your muscles and get your body warmed up, this was great because I was feeling pretty lazy when the DVD first started but after I got through this I was ready for more
Cardio Flow - (10:53) Sections 2-4 were my favorite, they are all done with light weights or you don't have to use weights if you want to modify it. The sections are what they call a cardio flow, each move flows into the next. Each section is different which keeps you engaged the entire time. I tend to get bored with DVDs that make you do the same circuit multiple times but this DVD does not make you do that, you are constantly changing up the toning and cardio moves which is great for your body.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the end, it'll be worth it. September 15, 2011
By Jules
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Depending on who you compare me with, I am in relatively good shape. However, this was a challenge I had to work up to completing.
I had worked with another core exhale DVD that dealt with shaping and sculpting. As I enjoyed both the teaching method and the workout, I figured I would try this DVD. It is exactly what it says--pure intensity but worth all the hard work. I am, after a short time, seeing definite results I did not see with my other workouts. I highly recommend this workout if you're up for a challenge.
