Editorial Reviews

Review

If you are looking for a fun, pilates/ballet inspired workout, this is it! You'll look (and feel) leaner, longer and more flexible. Ellen's cuing is deliberate and concise, making it easy to follow. She also encourages good form which will benefit beginners and ensure participants get the maximum toning benefit from the moves. --videofitness.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Ellen at her very best! February 27, 2008
By Karoly
I am a big fan of Ellen Barrett's, and have been for a couple of years. My favorite routine of her's, up to now, was the one she created for FitTV's "All Star Workouts" called Zen Sculpt. My next favorite, also from "All Star Workouts" was her Slow-robics. This new DVD, "Fat Burning Fusion" is from Ellen's Buff Girl Fitness productions, and does not disappoint! It is a great workout from start to finish, and is very challenging and tough if done correctly. You will get out of it what you put in to it. Her focus is not always on what is moving, but what isn't moving.

A little note about Ellen's style...she isn't for those who want a bulky physique. She is more about elongating and strengthening the muscles for a lean and feminine dancer's body. Her routines blend Plilates with dance, with mind/body integration. The entire program works all areas of the body--the powerhouse, the heart center, and the limbs. So, you burn calories, build muscle, and stretch through each move smoothly and gracefully. You will feel this the next day--especially in the legs and glutes.

Working out with Ellen is not easy, but it is gentle to the body. If you want hard-core cardio, with lots of jumping around and kick-boxing, she's not for you. If you want to look like Cathe Friedrich, Ellen won't get you there. However, if you want to be toned, flexible, long and lean, she's your gal. Done on a regular basis, you will see results. This is Ellen at her very best-great cuing, easy explanations, and fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous and different workout December 29, 2007
I enjoy this workout more each time I do it. It features a great combination of strength, flexibility, and cardio if you really put in the effort.
I also like that it's a barefoot, low impact workout. No special equipment needed.
Ellen is a master at easing you into some high intensity moves and then backing off just in time. I also like how she lets the music set the rhythm in all of her dvd's.
Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this workout! December 1, 2007
I bought this video thinking it would be an easier workout for those days I didn't want the high intensity. WRONG! It gave me a great workout, left me feeling stretched out, and quite energized. Great for the lower body. It was graceful and flowing. Highly Recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, awesome, awesome September 3, 2008

Ellen Barrett has her own style of workout she's developed specifically for women. Her goal is to combine cardio, toning and stretching together simultaneously instead of doing them separately, and she does this by a "fusion" of workout elements taken from pilates, yoga, dance/ballet, sports fitness and more traditional calisthenics and aerobics. Plus she aspires to arrange these elements into a flowing, low-stress, low-impact yet cardio-, musclar- and stretching-intense workout that is complimentary to the female body. Sounds like a Herculean task, doesn't it? Well, thankfully Barrett's been at this for quite awhile - she is a former tennis pro who got into aerobics and fitness in the 80's - and so really knows what she's doing. As result she's succeeded in making a very efficient, effective and comfortable workout style that works your entire body. Barrett's approach is so efficient and comfortable that you'll probably not even realize how much of a workout this is until you've done it a few times and become more aware of how this makes your body work. As for effective - when I started doing Barrett's FitTV workouts, I noticed improvement in stamina, strength, flexibility and body tone with a couple weeks, when I discovered how much easier housecleaning and daily tasks had become, that my jeans were bit looser around the waist and how my thigh and bicep muscles were little more defined.

This particular workout on this DVD is mostly standing, with only a bare minimal of matwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best workout. You owe it to yourself. February 16, 2009
Fat Burning Fusion

I exercise for many years, but I never did gymnastics or any serious sports, so I can say that I still amateur. I discovered Ellen Barrett DVDs just recently. Before that I worked with Denise Austin and Karen Vought and loved several of their workouts, but I needed something new. So I searched Amazon, read peoples reviews, watched samples on YouTube. I decided to try Ellen Barrett new Studio workout because I liked music in the sample. (I have all three DVDs; my favorite is "The Studio - Fat burning fusion"). I was rewarded.

Ellen Barrett has excellent personality, her voice is very pleasant to hear, all moves are flows from one to another one, and, after workout is complete, I feel great. Excellent music helps not just to do exercises, but also to ease your mind; it makes me smile and feel like I perform, not just doing exercise.

Please do not pay attention that someone said it's boring. It's not. Ellen Barrett put good number of repetitions, but in order to achieve result you need to do 8 - 16 times the same move, not just jump from one move to another one; also to master a proper form you need to do the same move over and over again. But even for the same leg or hand Ellen provides variety of exercises and a set does not goes for more than 5 minutes. (Set is several different exercises for the same hand or leg). The beauty of them is that they done in some special order which make your heart elevated (without jumping Jacks), and at the same time your muscles straightened or stretched.

I like when she says "elegant arms", "happy feet" or "whatever you're best, it's perfect" or "good work everybody".
