Product Description


"Lose the jiggle without the gym" --Marie Claire

A quarter of a million people have transformed their bodies at the exclusive Exhale Spa--now you can get these same results at home.

Build a strong core, develop washboard abs, improve posture, and create a tighter, firmer physique with Core Fusion Body Sculpt. This total-body program employs exercises that tone and sculpt your deepest, hard-to-reach muscles so it’s more efficient and effective than traditional strength training. You’ll use your own body weight as resistance and small hand weights to really challenge and build your muscles.

Segmented into five focused workouts of just 10 minutes each, these exercises target the whole body, from arms and shoulders to glutes, hips, thighs, and abs. The unique Core Fusion system will strengthen your body, quiet your mind, and improve your overall well-being while redefining your physique from head to toe.

Core Fusion creators Fred DeVito and Elisabeth Halfpapp have over 50 years’ combined experience teaching Pilates, yoga, dance, and Tai Chi, disciplines that inform the Body Sculpt workout. They are founding team members of Exhale, a leading mind/body spa with locations around the country.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ouch and Ahhh! March 23, 2009
By TTT
Format:DVD
I am the type of person that might as well open a library with all the workout DVDs I have. This one makes it to the top of the list. There are several selling points:

1) time - there are 5 ten minute sections that do not feel like an eternity nor is there time wasted with talk.

2) form - these two are very careful about form and ensuring that you are able to visualize exactly how you should be doing what they instruct.

3) effectiveness - you feel it afterwards. The next day after doing about three out of the five workouts, I was feeling my muscles.

4) palatable - these two are not annoying, don't yell, have nice music (or not) behind them and are all about the work itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent Weight & Lotte Berk-Based Workout January 11, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first thing that impressed me about this video is its intelligence. It's a thinking person's workout. Exercises are strong on authentic Lotte Berk since that was a significant part of this couple's background, with additions from Pilates, yoga and classical weight training. They do an excellent job of talking you through the exercises, explaining what it will do for your body, thereby keeping you motivated from a positive place, which is so much nicer than the commonly used negative motivational techniques where somebody is screaming you through a breakneck pace. They have you concentrate on how your body is feeling the exercise, stopping momentarily if you need to, then picking it up again - instead of counting monotonous repetitions for you. This approach is so much more pleasant and sensible. The workout is muscle toning, organized as interval training. Interval training has been proven by medical research to be much preferred for promoting fat loss and heart reserve capacity, instead of long term cardio. The pacing promotes the mind-body connection and focus, which reminds me of my ballet training from years ago, or hatha yoga. You have a chance to breathe and think during the exercises, without feeling additional stress due to the exercising. Much appreciated after a hectic day at work.

The video had a warm, intimate, personal trainer feel to it with the husband and wife team demonstrating the exercises together and instructing by means of a voiceover. They alternated showing the advanced version of an exercise and clearly indicated which person you should watch if that's the level you wanted. Setting is what I call "New Age living room," lovely décor, warm earthtones, water feature, and subdued lighting, plenty of camera shots from various angles.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE Core Fusion! December 12, 2008
By GG
Format:DVD
I'm always looking for something fun and results oriented to keep me motivated. This DVD totally fits the bill on that front. It's a really interesting and different approach to a total body workout broken up into do-able 10-minute sections that completely make me "feel the burn" AND keep me interested. The instructors do a great job of explaining each exercise clearly and showing alternate moves. Core Fusion seems to be all about small muscle movements and lots of reps so you're not working with heavy weights. However, you are repeating specific exercises for a longer period than you normally would so by the time you're done with each 10-min segment you really know you put some work into that muscle group. My personal faves are the ballet inspired chair workouts (amazing for the rear-end) and the arm workouts (awesome tri/bicept routine).

If you like this one, check out Core Fusion Pilates Plus. I bought both DVDs at once and am really pleased. Pilates Plus features the same instructors but with exercises that target the abs. The fact that I not only finished this DVD, but am doing it regularly is a testament in itself as I normally can't get through a pilates workout (find them boring in many cases) and I hate working my abs. I may be imagining things but I do feel a bit tighter all around after doing these workouts for a little while. Both Core Fusion DVDs have quickly become part of my regular workout rotation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Results....period May 20, 2010
By Lili
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are a number of reviews on Amazon for this DVD, so depending on how you determine what type of workout is right for you, the following factors might be taken into consideration:

1. Low impact, strength training - this video certainly delivers as a workout that doesn't involve much "jarring" exercise - a big reason why I personally like it. No sneakers, you can work out in your PJs

2. Time - I prefer workouts that are under 30 minutes as I frequently find it challenging to find time to work out (effectively) for an hour. The workouts in this DVD are broken out into (approx) 10 minutes, focusing on arms, thighs, butt, core and stretching. I like the fact that I can devote 20 minutes and target certain areas, and you will absolutely feel "the burn". You may not be sore the next day, but your muscles will definitely feel tired. Although there is a lot of time devoted to stretching, I do feel that it is necessary to take a break to realign your posture and stretch for the purpose of "sculpting" lean muscles. Although the stretching may seem unnecessary or prolonged, it appears that the time of rest helps to shape the body into more of a dancer's physique.

3. Effectiveness - I personally think this is the most important factor. As much (or as little) as you enjoy the instructors cueing, tone, delivery, etc, it really doesn't matter if you are not getting the results from the workout (in my opinion). Any workout depends on the individual to push themselves beyond their own physical and mental limitations to truly see change and results. I have been using Body Sculpt 5x a week for about 3 weeks and I can honestly say that I have lost inches in my waist and thighs.

Workout DVDs that are easy on the KNEE?
Try Karen Voight's Burn & Firm. There are no lunges or kneeling, and the squats are modified so you're not going as deep.
