Booty Barre: Beginners & Beyond is the latest DVD in instructor Tracey Mallett's Booty Barre series (previous releases have been Tracey Mallett-The Booty Barre-Total New Body and Tracey Mallett's The Booty Barre Plus Abs & Arms). As the title suggests, this workout is geared to a wider range of exercisers, and to that end, Tracey and her crew show several different levels of modifications. Tracey is joined by one background exerciser, Alissa, for the "Beginner Plus" version, while her friend Nicola shows the "Basic Basic" version. Finally, Amy is in the rear displaying the "Intermediate" level.
The Main Menu of the DVD reads as follows:
*Express Barre Main Workout
*Bonus Section: Abs, Booty and Flexibility
For the 12-minute Tutorial, Tracey uses Alissa to demonstrate. She covers topics including proper placement at the barre, various positions used during the workout (e.g., relevé, second position, grand battement, etc.), and form tips such as keeping the abs in and the scapulae down.
The Express Barre Main Workout is 35 minutes long. Tracey describes Booty Barre (on the DVD case) as "a fluid blend of Pilates, Dance, and Yoga," and the dance influence is evident in the 5.5-minute warm-up, which puts a bit of a jazzy spin on classic moves such as simple steps and squats from side-to-side.Read more ›
This workout is useful and quick. After having two kids, I felt like I needed some help in exercising the mid-section and looked to a Barre workout to regain strength and tone in my core. I will update with results.
I must share that this is the most pleasant workout DVD that I have ever watched/owned. Tracey doesn't tell the viewer to "keep it up" or try to inspire, she just provides info on technique where needed and goes through the workout. I love that Tracey shares useful fitness info, shows the techniques and doesn't pander or try to inspire, both of which would make unnecessary judgments about the viewers.
I was pleasantly surprised that there was no 'sexy this', 'bikini body' or 'ripped that' banter making unnecessary assumptions about the viewers body and goals. Since my kids exercise with me, I sometimes have to mute exercise DVDs because of the judgmental body image chatter, but not this DVD. Yay! I was pleased that Tracey represented a lean, strong, knowledgeable and healthy woman. I will purchase more of Tracey's workout DVD's!!
