The second release in the ELLEN BARRETT LIVE series, Grace+Gusto is a real class, with real class regulars, filmed exclusively in Ellen's studio. Like the other DVDs, it's cardio, stretch and strength all rolled into one for total body conditioning and total person wellness. The 45 minute workout starts with easy dancer warm up that segues into 40 minutes of graceful cardio. The last 5 minutes of mat work flatten the belly and firm the upper arms.

Ellen really is a fabulous teacher. Her cueing is excellent. I am not a dancer and I don't have rhythm, but I am able to follow her dvds without a problem. Each time I do Grace and Gusto I think to myself "I wish I lived near her studio. I would sign up for her classes." Try any of her videos. You'll be hooked!!! And you'll be in great shape!
This DVD delivered everything I hoped it would. As someone with back and foot problems, it was nice to have something that was low impact, but still very energetic. I feel like I get a comprehensive workout and it makes me sweat. The best thing for me, though, is that my back problems mean I have balance problems and this video offers a lot of balance exercises. While I still struggle with them, I can tell they are making a distinct difference in just one month and are a huge help in getting stronger. I am definitely regaining my Grace and Gusto with Ellen's help.
