The workout is split up into several segments, the first being a simple warmup consisting of marches, step touches, mambos and squats. Then you will move into the next segment which is the ballet series. Not to difficult, Ellen will take you through a series of ballet moves such as center plies, calf lifts, tiptoe plies (center plie with heels lifted), standing oblique work (imprints), and rear leg extensions. She will repeat the series a couple times with less reps and adding some moves such as a scoop move where is looks like you are gathering flowers, and a swirl move that targets the obliques a bit. I really liked this segment, it brings out the graceful side in me.
The next 2 segments are cardio, fun simple combinations with some higher impact moves to elevate the heartrate. But you could also follow the modifier who shows all low impact options. The first combination consists of march ups, jacks, heel digs, knee lifts, v-steps, skier squats, and shuffles. The sequence is repeated a few times. The second combination consists of step kicks, v-steps, jumpropes, 1 leg plyo jumps, jump squats, side to side jumropes, march up/back or bunny hops back, double jacks and one legged hops. Again this series is repeated a few times and power moves are added if you like.
The next segment is toning work with light weights.Read more ›
I've been doing it consistently (4x p/wk) since just before Christmas, and I've lost 7 pounds and am back into clothes I haven't fit into since before I got married!
Some of these reviews say that the 40 minutes of high intensity cardio is too easy or short, but they must all be Miss Fitness America or something! After 2 months of doing this workout 4x p/wk I am only just now getting to where I can do it all the way through without getting out of breath or too sweaty.
Here's the bottom line: this workout produces serious results in the time promised. If you are consistent and stick with it, as well as making healthy eating choices, you WILL see results. The instructor is very engaging, and makes it - believe it or not - fun! The moves are such that you hardly notice the time passing. I highly recommend it.

Don't be fooled when you start the warm-up-you'll be "dying" in a few minutes. Great workout that offers both low-impact and high-impact options. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Marsha

This workout is great for me. It doesn't help me to lose weight, but I lose inches and it tones my muscles. If you're looking to tone, then this is a great workout.Published on March 24, 2014 by Pam
