Editorial Reviews

No bulky muscles here! Instead get a long, lean and lifted silhouette with SKINNY SCULPT, my most effective, body-transforming workout ever. The slender success comes from three key ingredients. 1. Generous rages of motion that elongate body lines by engaging large muscle groups. 2. Focused, muscle-squeezing exercises that sculpt & tone in all the right places, and 3. Absolute fluidity that brings elegance to the forefront. Coveted results are yours for the taking!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific! March 5, 2010
This was a great total body workout using light weights-2-3lb dumbells using big range of motion moves for the upper body. The first 30 minutes uses the weights then the following 15 min moves to the floor for glutes, legs and abs! The format is terrific and the music is great. One of her very best from the Studio!

4.0 out of 5 stars Antoher Great Workout From Ellen April 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
I love Ellen Barrett and truly believe you can't go wrong with her workouts. This DVD is no exception. It effectively works your arms (especially your shoulders) while elevating your heart rate and leaving you feeling great afterward. My only complaint (and the reason I'd give this workout four stars instead of five) is that for Ellen junkies who've been faithfully doing her Studio workouts, it would be nice if they increased in difficulty, or if she released some workouts for more advanced exercisers. This workout is lovely, but it didn't seem any more rigorous than her earlier "Slim Sculpt" release, and her other two latest releases also seemed on par or even easier than the earlier ones. I didn't feel any muscle soreness after Skinny Sculpt, even though I definitely felt the "burn" during the workout. I'd love to see these workouts stepped up a notch to provide an extra challenge!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ellen! You are helping my arms!! March 25, 2010
Verified Purchase
I would love to say, this workout delivers! I felt it for days afterwards in my arms and my arms were pretty used to being worked from Tracy Anderson's dvds. I love how this workout has some of the same principals, long fluid movements with light weights and big ranges of motion. I love how cheerful Ellen is it makes the 45 minutes zip by!! And working out barefoot is surprisingly relaxing (you don't have to find your shoes or make excuses like, 'ahh my shoes are in the other room' lol. I cannot recommend this enough especially if you want to be strong, lean and mean. This is not for a body builder type physique but will still challenge. I highly recommend this for intermediate exercisers or even advanced ones who want a graceful workout. Beginners- don't despair you can do this too! Ellen has a great modifier!! I also loved how this worked the whole body even though the arm section was a standout (you actually spend 30 minutes with approx. 3 lb weights!) Her matwork is invigorating and hits trouble zones. Amen!! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great workout July 22, 2010
Verified Purchase
I agree with some other reviewers - Ellen's "Sculpt" videos are very arm-heavy. I have the older version, Slim Sculpt, and I noticed in this version, she clarifies a few times that this workout uses all muscle groups, etc., probably based on feedback from the older version (Slim S.)
So - I thought I'd include this video during my "light" rotation days, and boy, was I wrong. It is arm-heavy, but my legs ached too - there's a lot of legwork in this one. A lot of abs, too.
Overall, it's great to add in as a weight training workout. I've used many "sculpt" videos, but both Ellen's Sculpt ones are my favorites.
Plus, people notice I've "lost" weight, even if I haven't, simply because her videos give me that lean look.
I highly recommend this video (and her older one, Slim Sculpt)

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite the challenging workout! April 23, 2010
Verified Purchase
I found this workout to be quite challenging. While there is alot of emphasis on working the arms & shoulders, there is also plenty targeting other areas throughout. The chair sequence for example, is a little different than on any of her other videos and I know I am trembling by the end of that segment. I have been doing a rotation of Ellen's videos every week for a year with this being my most recent one, so I am definitely no beginner, and I had to pause a few times throughout the first few times I did it. I thought my arms were going to fall off. The mat workout at the end is great too, with different moves she hadn't done before. I am definitely feeling my inner thighs after Skinny Sculpt. This video has worked WONDERS for my tricep definition. Definitely one of my favorite Ellen videos!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Full-Body Workout June 27, 2010
By Marie
Verified Purchase
I am already a big fan of Ellen Barrett, and I consider myself in pretty-good shape. I run, spin, kick-box, etc. Usually I use 5 lb. dumbbells with Ellen's DVDs. Well, for this new DVD, I had to immediately switch to 3 lbs. Just by using light weights, Ellen is able to engage many, many muscles simultaneously. She even says at one point, "In real-life, we use more than one muscle at a time." Don't expect to develop big muscles with this workout, but you will feel long, lines of muscles burning all at once.

The workout begins with a quick warm-up, followed by the majority of the workout with weights. Finally, before cool-down, you do a lot of mat work to shape and tone your core, legs and butt.

I love that you can do this barefoot. If I do a day or two of high impact or heavy cardio in a row, this is a nice treat for my body. I still sweat, my heart is pumping, and I still feel like I did not take a day off. Your body gets a challenging workout from Skinny Sculpt!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Feel Good Workout May 30, 2010
By Nina
Verified Purchase
I recently purchased this DVD and I must say that, overall, I like this workout. I find it quite challenging, at times, since you're constantly using your arms while lifting 3-lb weights. I have shoulder problems and so I'm mindful of this, and use 2-lb weights instead, and when my shoulders begin to feel the burn, I alternate between using the weights and exercising sans weights (Ellen has 2 others demonstrating the exercises, and one of them does not use weights as a modification). I find that I get a good workout, and feel really good at the end of it.

I have several fitness DVD's (Denise Austin, Kathy Smith, Suzanne Bowen, Lara Hudson, Leslie Sansone, and Chris Freytag among others) and this is a workout that I think I will use alongside my Denise Austin workouts.

The 2 shortcomings of this DVD: 1) The background music sounds weird and I would have preferred hearing something else instead! 2) I would have liked to have had the option of mixing and matching the different segments of the workout so that if I didn't feel like doing the whole 45 minutes at a stretch I could have chosen not to do so (this option is available on Denise Austin's DVD's).
