I got home from work at 3:15pm, I got it in the mail at 3:30pm, I did it at 4:45 and I just finished it. I really loved it! I loved the moves-all different from her previous routines! I loved the set and the backgrounders too! It went by so fast-even though it is Ellen's standard 45min length! The only move I need to work on is the Threading move. My heartrate got up to a nice fat burning zone and a moderate sweat! The music was great too. I feel it in my legs and waist, even though there was not a ton of "ab" moves per se, it is her usual sneaky-easy-looking-yet-tough formula. She is a Pilates/yoga fusion genius! No one else can fuse these disiplines like her-I have tried many. This is a great addition to my Ellen collection. I now can't wait until her upcoming Grace & Gusto!!!! Grade A.
Things that I love about this workout:
-It's graceful - I don't feel like I'm jumping around or doing anything clunky
-It's controlled. No matter how many times I do one of Ellen's workouts, I feel that I can always improve part of it. The amount of muscle control can make the workout infinitely harder. So even when I feel that I've mastered a move, I realize, I could be pulling my core in tighter, I could be making my movements more precise. I like that attention to detail.
-Ellen isn't annoying. I have a real problem with some DVD fitness personalities - their voice ... their yelling ... their lack of encouragement ... or just their general annoyingness - Ellen is upbeat without being obnoxious.
-Stretching. Even when you're in the cardio portion of the workout, the moves encourage stretching your muscles
-I actually feel good when I'm done with this workout! I'm tired, but my body feels good!
If you love the basics of pilates, yoga, and dance, but want to ensure that your cardio is at a good level - this is a great workout to start with!
Onto the review of Power Fusion...LOVED IT. Usually, if I'm not sweating within the first 10-15 minutes of a workout..I say it's not challenging enough. I found myself thinking..what were these reviewers talking about?? This isn't difficult. Then I got to the middle of the workout and uh, OMG. I was begging her to stop. By the end I was dripping and today I'm sore. Lot of new innovative moves, loved the music (nice change from the previous studio videos) and the instruction was on point.
This one is definitely a keeper although there is one tiny issue as another reviewer commented...I do have problems with my knees and this one has squats, plies, lunges and pulsing warriors, this move called earth and sky (I think) and the knees could feel it this a.m. The one thing about her workouts is if I keep them up on a consistent basis (which I haven't for the past few weeks due to illness) my quads are strengthened and my knees will not bother me at all.Read more ›
