This series of four DVDs is the latest offering from Tracie Long Training (TLT). Although many recall instructor Tracie Long-Matthews from her Firm and FitPrime days, she has since struck out on her own down a new path, that of functional fitness training. Functional fitness is designed to train your body for how it moves in everyday life, and there is a focus on core work, balance, and agility along with more traditional strength training. In addition, the body is worked through all planes of motion, so you see a lot more twisting, turning, an moving on an angle in functional work. The workouts have a very strong, athletic feel to them, and the wide variety of exercises in each makes the time fly by.

This series is a follow-up to Tracie's first functional fitness efforts with her previous company, Tracie Long Productions (TLP). Although the TLPs workouts (which included Core Foundations, Functional Strength, Dynamic Strength & Power, Nitty Gritty & the Whole Shebang, and the Functional Foundations set) were great workouts themselves, they were also extremely challenging and inaccessible to most people. With her new TLT workouts, Tracie has created workouts that are much more user-friendly, from a much-improved set and camera work to the inclusion of three levels of modifiers (easier, intermediate, and more challenging). All of the workouts in the TLT series follow this new format, and I have broken down each of the four workouts individually below.

Better Burns...Better Buns (BBBB). Led by Tracie Long, 56 minutes. This is a mostly cardio workout that also includes lower body toning. It uses a medicine ball, and optional balance stick, and rags or paper plates (depending on whether you have smooth flooring or carpet) for sliding your feet along the floor.

I actually stumbled across this hoping to find new Tracie Long workouts, but as long as I'm here, I will submit my two cents' worth. I have been doing these four workouts for over a year now, following 15 years doing Firm workouts. I thought I was in good shape, but these put me on an entirely new plane. Their emphasis on core (whether you know it or not), upper back, and stabilizers has completely changed the way I do everything. I now have strength in smaller muscles groups I didn't even know I had, contributing significantly to working the larger muscle groups even harder and more effectively. I had strong glutes before from good old squats, dips, lunges, and tall-box leg presses. Now, I have strong glutes all the way up into my lower back and hamstrings that could lift a Volkswagen (thank you, Susan Harris). My entire midsection, front and back, is rock hard. My upper back is stronger than it has ever been. The workouts are extraordinarily efficient and pack more into an hour than any others I have done. I have never been in such good shape. I also highly recommend the four Tracie Long Productions (post-Firm) workouts, which came out just before these.

Like the other reviewers have already pointed out, this series is geared towards the intermediate to advanced. I can't say enough great things, especially about the Endurance DVD. If you're tired of the same old moves / routines, give any of these DVDs a try. I particularly like these because of the emphasis in functional strength - what's the use of being able to leg press 300 lbs if you can't last on a 20 minute hike? Use these along with your regular cardio and strength routine and you WILL see great results.

Amazing! I just ordered these a few weeks ago, but these DVDs are my new favorites-and so far I have only done 2 of them! (Strength in Movement and the Endurance one). Let me just say that I consider myself to be in pretty good shape but this workout definitely challenged me (I was dripping sweat!) and is a great change of pace.

There are many facets of these videos that I like, but I really enjoy the fact that most of the exercises are unique, compound (working 2 or more muscle groups at once), and really challenge your balance and stabilizer muscles. Like I said, I thought I was in good shape but I had such a hard time staying balanced during a lot of the moves that I realized how much work I have left to do! Also, many of these exercises are VERY unique and tough, and that is amazing considering how many exercise dvds are out there!

A couple of things-The moves are tough, and you may need to go through them a few times before you master them. You also need a variety of hand weights (3-10 lbs.) and a paper plate or rag (there are some sliding moves). Also-good form is CRUCIAL during this video-especially during the balance moves! I have pretty bad knees so I definitely had to keep checking my form because some of the moves go pretty fast. So work at your own pace, but always keep that weight in your heels ;-) All of the videos are over 50 mins. long so it is a nice long workout with a good combination of strength and cardio (at least in SIM and Endurance, I still haven't done the other two yet).

So overall-such an amazing investment! You will not be disappointed, trust me!!!

I cannot say enough good things about the Tracie Long Training program. These workouts are EXCELLENT. I have been working out for 15 years and have many tapes and DVDs. However, this is, by far, one of the best workout programs I have ever done. The moves are different and challenging. The use of plates/towels works the legs and arms in new ways the produce fantastic results. Also, the use of the weighted ball adds a new dimension to these workouts. You get a full body workout with these DVDs, and the time seems to fly by. They never seem like they are 40 minutes to an hour because the routines never get boring. The program builds endurance, burns calories and builds slender muscles. The cueing is great, and the set and music are nice as well. This is a set that I will definitely use for years to come.
