Editorial Reviews

5 10-minute workouts to lift and tone

"Heidi Klum and Cameron Diaz rave about this Pilates, yoga, and core conditioning regimen.

"Thinner thighs in three weeks!" ---Health (praise for Core Fusion Body Sculpt)

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.

Lift your buns, tone your legs, and trim your waist with Core Fusion Thighs & Glutes. This program firms and tightens in all the right spots, giving you the lower body of your dreams. And since the moves work your largest muscle groups at a high intensity, you’ll lose weight and inches as you sculpt and tone.

The five 10-minute workouts can be played together for a full core fusion class. Or, you can pick individual segments to suit your time schedule. It also includes the "Leg Lift Thigh Strengthener," a bonus exercise to shape long, lean legs. With the unique Core Fusion approach, you’ll tone deep down muscles to gain new strength and redefine your physique.

The Instructors: Husband and wife team and Core Fusion 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 Thighs & Glutes workout. They are founding team members of exhale, a leading mind/body spa with locations around the United States.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome for lower body - love it! July 29, 2009
By mpstat
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just did Exhale: Core Fusion Thighs & Glutes, and I CAN FEEL my muscles!

I am a fan of original Callanetics, and was looking for other programs in similar lines but more modern and more strenuous then Callanetics. Core Fusion Thighs & Glutes turned out to be exactly what I was looking for for lower body! (no abs though) I was not fond of the setting with a statue of Buddha in the background, shadows of trees on curtains, and darker color scheme overall. However, I appreciate the fact that I could get to the menu and start exercising without being forced to wait through a lengthy intro. Exercises are well organized into 10 minute segments of 5 segments total with clear instructions. One instructor demonstrates advanced version, while the other demonstrates lighter version of the same exercise. The music selection is fine, and not distracting. Most importantly the exercises are great!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thins out thighs and trims your waist too! November 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have always built muscle easily and in my quest to get fit I have incorporated many different kinds of exercises. Unfortunately, I have lost some weight, but I have also bulked up in my lower body. I am short too, so any kind of excess (fat or muscle) is very unappealing. Here is where C/F: Thighs and Glutes steps in! There are 5 ten minute segments that include warm up, the exercises them selves, stretches after each move, and then final stretch. I started this video about three weeks ago...whoa! I have never had such thin thighs before! I am finally getting that curve on the inside of the thigh. And to make it all very interesting, I immediately dropped almost a whole inch off my waist. In THREE WEEKS! It may not sound amazing to you all, but for a short person that loses weight slowly, this is almost a miracle. Especially considering that I do not do the whole video each time, maybe two or three segments, three to four times a week added on to end of my usual exercise sessions.

I think it helps that I am already familiar with these type of exercises through past use of Callanetics (the ORIGINAL), The Bar Method, Etc.. If you are not, there may be a learning curve as you figure out how to feel what you muscles are supposed to be doing, as these are very small concentrated movements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner From Fred and Liz! August 23, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been doing the other two Core Fusion DVDs for months and was so happy to receive the new one that I did the whole thing at one time, then added the Round Back/Flat back Abs, the Pure Core and the stretch from Pilates Plus and can I just say that I am sore in places (2 days later) that I have never really met before? This new DVD works all the muscles around the hips and waist as well as thighs, glutes, hamstrings and calves. What I really liked in this DVD is that Fred and Liz talk a little more about what you might be experiencing (shaking, burning, etc) and let a beginner know that this is normal. Liz has such a great body and having her do the work with a bare belly is a great motivator to see how she got that belly. Also, I like that all five segments are active, as I'm happy to do my own cool down or use one of the stretch segments from the other two DVDs. I'm looking forward to doing it again! Having all three Core Fusion DVDs allows me to program my own workouts with the convenient 10 minute (and 5 minute bonus sections, 1 each, on Body Sculpt and Pilates Plus) sections. Over time, I can go further and really experience my growing strength.
If Jillian Michaels is too "boot camp" and jarring for your tastes, try Core Fusion. In my opinion they are safer yet thorough and deep workouts that will get your body where you want it to go.
I can't WAIT until December when I can get the new arms and abs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic September 20, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't believe the results I'm getting from this DVD. I don't know if it's a cross-training effect or just that this one takes you up a notch from the other Lotte Berk inspired workouts (Callanetics, Lotte Berk, Bar Method), which I've been doing for over 2 years, but I got stronger & firmer after just the first couple of tries on this one. Fred & Elizabeth push your muscles to the limit in deceptively tough routines, and I've learned not to do the whole DVD at once -- 3 10-min. segments are enough for one day.

A rehash of their other DVDs? Nonsense! The Pretzel section alone puts that to the lie. I've done Pretzel before, but never like this.

I also appreciate that they included useful segments from their first 2 DVDs (which I have). Flat Back/Round Back from Core Fusion and Upper Body Sculpt from Body Sculpt are included in the Bonus Features, so you can do a total body workout without switching DVDs.

I can't wait for the new upper body disc to come out. These people really know what they're doing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! Tushie is sore the next day! December 9, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Love love love this Core Fushion line of workout DVDs! The only ones I have done multiple times b/c they are short, to the point, not 30 min. of warm up prior the exercises and I see a difference in less than a week! I'm short and any muscle looks bulky on me under jeans, these exercises really do make the legs look longer and leaner, which at 5'2 I didn't think was possible! My tushie is sure sore today from one of the 10 min workouts I did yesterday; which makes me want to do more! Love fast results! Highly Recommend!

For a beginner these are perfect, if you already work out you might just add these as extra to your session.

Does the "Thighs & Glutes" workout reaches your harmstrings ?
I've only done two of the segments so far and yes, one of them does work your hamstrings quite nicely. I haven't tried the other 3 segments yet.
