Editorial Reviews

Advanced workout. Not recommended for people with low mobility or those just beginning to exercise. This Core strengthening workout is a favorite with my students, men and women alike. They never seem to get bored with it and ask for it over and over again. Not only do the exercises feel good while you're doing them, but the overall workout gives fast outstanding results. Because of its popularity with my personal clients I decided to share it with everyone. This revolutionary spinal workout will unlock muscles in your core that you did not know existed making you both stronger and leaner. This workout gets to the root of tight, painful back and hip muscles liberating them to achieve both increased range of motion and release of pain. Although the abdominal muscles are challenged throughout the workout, the floor work sequence is long, unique and strengthens the entire back and abdominal group. This is a workout you can do repetitively and notice increased strength and flexibility after each session. The inches will also drop away from the powerful Core strengthening as your posture improves and your stomach flattens.

By Reviewer Dr. Beth #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 15, 2011
Format: DVD
I love Classical Stretch, and I have and enjoy many of the full body workouts, including Classical Stretch - The Esmonde Technique: Full Body Workout Volume 1 / Athletes Intense Stretch. This DVD seems somewhat mistitled; I think that instructor Miranda Esmonde-White may have had better luck if she had called it called it "Classical Stretch Full Body Workout Volume 3" or even "Classical Stretch Posture Primer." As she notes in her introduction, the Core Workout IS a full-body routine a which focuses on the posture. Where the "core" comes into it is not the modern idea of core as being the abs, but the classic Pilates definition of core as involving not just the abdominals but rather ALL of the muscles that surround the spine. To work these muscles, Miranda notes that she will be including a lot of rotational moves in the routine.

The Main Menu appears as follows:
*Introduction to Workout, 3 Minutes
*Classical Stretch Core Workout, 55 Minutes
*Iberostar Hotels and Resorts

Miranda is working out alone on a bright sandy beach in Jamaica. During the introduction, she provides a brief tutorial for one of the moves that is used throughout the workout, the Caribbean spine (a c-curve movement). The warm-up is just under 3 minutes long, and it consists of many of Miranda's typical moves, including side steps, taps, hamstring curls, knee ups, twists, and arm swings. Following the warm-up, Miranda immediately flows into full-body stretches. She intersperses her usual side-to-side lunges, which include plenty of shoulder rotations, with the Caribbean spine.

I have been doing classical stretch on and off for years (doing the programs on television) and it is very much the best stretching/strengthening program I've ever tried. I have back and neck pain and if I do this frequently, it helps a lot. It also helps slim the waistline and legs and arms. It's not a cardio workout, but an all over strengthening, lengthening workout. Miranda Esmonde-White does quite a few stretches and combinations of various moves that I've seen nowhere else, and it really helps loosen up the body's core. Not to mention, she's has a pleasant personality, and explains well what she is doing as she goes, and why it works. I would recommend this workout DVD (and her others) to anyone, young or old, that needs a gentle but effective strengthening and stretching workout.

These stretches are great for anyone of any age, in reasonable physical condition. I am 75 yo and find myself more flexible and energetic since beginning this regime two weeks ago.

I've enjoyed her three disc Classical Stretch Esmonde Technique DVD. This Core Workout was addressing the very muscle group that was bothering me...stiff neck and shoulders and poor posture. Fantastic workout.

I've been doing the Esmonde technique on and off for more than 6 years and I know it works. This particular core workout is a favorite and so is her original Classical Stretch. Who would believe that you can lose inches by stretching. Yes! You can! This is not simple stretching. These exercises actually strengthen and also lengthen the muscles so you wind up with a leaner, neater body. These exercises produce tone without bulk (most of us ladies do not want bulk). I do suggest you order directly from the Classical Stretch website as the price from the vendor here is rediculous.

I really like her show and this dvd was 55 minutes long. I was not sure it would help me any as I do get stiff at times and different aches and pains. but that night after I did the workout I slept so good!

This was the first Classical Stretch video I have purchased, and I am very glad I did. The stretches are great and the routine is a wonderful workout. I followed the directions--did every day the first week and then 3x a week. I am on the computer a lot and almost immediately felt improvement in posture, neck rotation and general posture that has continued.

The only reason I gave it a 4 and not a 5 is because Miranda chats/instructs throughout the video, and I know some people do not care for that. I don't mind and I appreciate the positioning reminders.
