I have been working out daily since college. I'm now 33 years old and consider myself in very good physical condition. I love long-distance running, step aerobics, yoga and rock climbing. I follow a low-sugar vegetarian diet, and watch my portion size. In short, I thought I was doing everything right. I was therefore resigned to my small belly pooch, my little saddlebags (curvy hips, if you're diplomatic about it) and the hint of cottage cheese on my bottom. I believed these were products of aging and motherhood, and I thought there was nothing I could do about these problem areas (beyond hiding them), until I got the Booty Barre workouts.
In the span of three weeks, I have dropped a pants size and firmed up my hips and thighs. My stomach is flatter and trimmer. I finally LOOK like I exercise as much as I do. That aside, I FEEL stronger and better. I look forward to my workouts again, and I love seeing the progress I am making in other areas (faster run times, better endurance, more upper body strength, improved balance and posture). Tracey Mallett's workouts are challenging, rewarding, fun, and best of all, they WORK. Highly recommended.
I spent over 20 years as a dancer and stopped very suddenly when my first pregnancy developed complications. Bed rest packs on those lbs! 19 months after my first child I had my second. My poor body needed some serious rehab! I had tried a few different methods in search of my elusive pre-baby dancers body, but nothing was really working. Just wanted to feel healthy and strong again, not necessarily skinny. For me, working out should be fun (like dancing was for me) and I was having a hard time really getting into anything and sticking to it. (Yes, even Zumba. But, that's another story.) Then I found the Booty Barre. I saw results after doing this workout only THREE TIMES! I was shocked. Pretty sure my muscles were just happy to be worked like the old days. The movements are rather simple to follow once you've been through the workout a time or two (like with any video!). Due to my background, I already understand the technique and proper form for much of the ballet and pilates inspired sections--she doesn't go into a lot of explanation. I realize not everyone is a dancer, but you can still benefit from this workout! Just do the best you can. (Please keep your toes in line with your knees! When you bend your knees, they should go right over your toes. If your toes are turned out farther than your knees can go, due to how much your hips can turn out, adjust your toes! This will help prevent knee pain and injury. Please be careful with those knees.Read more ›
This DVD is a follow-up to instructor Tracey Mallett's popular Tracey Mallett-The Booty Barre-Total New Body DVD. Although the original Booty Barre was quite tough, Booty Barre Plus Abs & Arms (or BB+) kicks things up a notch. As the title would suggest, this DVD offers more work for both the arms and the abdominals, and Mallett also places a greater emphasis on the core throughout the workout. However, this is still Booty Barre, and so there is still plenty of work for the glutes as well. Props required for this workout include a sturdy chair, a light set of dumbbells, a small ball (one like 9" Body Back Ball & Pump would work well), and a mat. Mallett is working out in the same studio she used for the original Booty Barre, and there are four female background exercisers, one of whom shows some modifications.
The Main Menu of the DVD offers options to either Play All or to select each of the four chapters individually. I have described each section of the workout in detail below (times in parentheses are approximate).
FUSION WARM-UP (6.5 minutes)
Mallett incorporates some dynamic yoga-type movements into the warm-up, such as chair pose with pedaling the feet and pulsing lunges. She also includes stretches designed to open the hips, but these felt too intense too soon--e.g., leg pulses performed from a standing splits position. The warm-up concludes with sumo squats and side leg lifts.
KILLER ARMS (14 minutes)
For the arms work, Mallett suggests 3-5 lb.Read more ›
