Editorial Reviews

The powerful EssentricsTM technique of strengthening the muscles in a lengthened position quickly transforms the body into a long, lean and toned shape. The unique flowing movements of the EssentricsTM program have been proven to simultaneously slenderize and tone the abs, waist, thighs, arms and back. Host: SAHRA ESMONDE-WHITE

This is one of two Essentrics DVDs originally released by Sahra Esmonde-White, daughter of Miranda Esmonde-White, founder of the Classical Stretch DVDs. Sahra is a Classical Stretch trainer herself and appears in many of her mother's workouts, but it is likely that the Essentrics line was deigned to appeal to younger viewers.

I am a Classical Stretch fan, but prior to trying this DVD, I had tried Sahra's other workout, Essentrics Sports: Flexibility Workout for Athletes. Although it wasn't a bad workout, I actually didn't like it much, mainly because it was cued via voicever (by Miranda), which had a much different feel than the casualness of the Classical Stretch workouts that I was used to and enjoyed.

I thought I might like this workout better, as Sahra cues live here. She is featured in the same set as the other DVD (a large, almost industrial studio with large windows in the background), and she is joined by two female background exercisers, Ileana and Lawrence, who are also Essentrics trainers.

This DVD is broken up into two separate 30-minute workouts: Workout 1: Arms, Abs & Waist Toner, and Workout 2: Legs, Butt, & Thighs Thinner. The Main Menu of the DVD offers a brief (<1 minute) introduction to each workout, an option to "Play All" for each of the two workouts, and finally, a "Scene Selection" option which lets the viewer choose from Standing/Floorwork for the first workout and Standing/Floorwork/Barre Work for Workout 2. I have broken down each workout in great detail below.

The title is a bit misleading since you can't spot-reduce. This isn't for burning lots of calories, it doesn't get the heart rate high enough. Having said that, with proper diet and extra cardio exercises, this will definitely help tone up problem areas. I'm trying to cut back on cardio due to spinal injury and needed something that will loosen up the joints and tone up without bulking up. These workouts are fairly basic but really concentrate on different muscle groups, hitting from different angles, and constantly stretching out the back by arching and rounding in fluid motion. They're easy to follow, no gimmicky or jerky movements here. The instructor does a good job at explaining without stopping or resting. I do both workouts at once (30 minutes each) and hardly get out of breath or break a sweat. But I feel it in my arms, legs, abs, and bums all day, and my posture has changed. It's a great way to start the day.

Also, the video is tastefully done- no annoying music, beautifully shot and art-directed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It !!!! May 31, 2010
I was pleasantly surprised when I did this workout about how good it really is. I workout a lot; practice and teach yoga, do club bells and kettlebells, and much more but I felt these moves in places not normally reached. If your looking for a good stretch that will lengthen and tone; this is the one. Don't pay the high prices listed above; google essentrics workout and go directly to the source, $20 + S&H. These come from Canada.

Great work out, it really tones and strengthens the muscle groups, and benefit can be seen in just a few workouts.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm amazed at the fast results March 14, 2014
I was pretty skeptical of this workout so waited about 8 months before really using it. I just started with this, or yoga or a pilates dvd, almost daily, for the last 2 weeks. I've done this one now 4 times and I am blown away at the results. I am literally leaner after each time I do it. Not only that I am breathing so much more deeply all the time, am standing taller, am much stronger, my shoulders aren't sore and "creaky" anymore (in only 2 WEEKS!) and I feel younger (I'm 49). This is really the best all around exercise I've ever done. Highly recommended if you want to stay lean, toned, youthful and happy!
