I spent over 20 years as a dancer and stopped very suddenly when my first pregnancy developed complications. Bed rest packs on those lbs! 19 months after my first child I had my second. My poor body needed some serious rehab! I had tried a few different methods in search of my elusive pre-baby dancers body, but nothing was really working. Just wanted to feel healthy and strong again, not necessarily skinny. For me, working out should be fun (like dancing was for me) and I was having a hard time really getting into anything and sticking to it. (Yes, even Zumba. But, that's another story.) Then I found the Booty Barre. I saw results after doing this workout only THREE TIMES! I was shocked. Pretty sure my muscles were just happy to be worked like the old days. The movements are rather simple to follow once you've been through the workout a time or two (like with any video!). Due to my background, I already understand the technique and proper form for much of the ballet and pilates inspired sections--she doesn't go into a lot of explanation. I realize not everyone is a dancer, but you can still benefit from this workout! Just do the best you can. (Please keep your toes in line with your knees! When you bend your knees, they should go right over your toes. If your toes are turned out farther than your knees can go, due to how much your hips can turn out, adjust your toes! This will help prevent knee pain and injury. Please be careful with those knees.)
I was in the middle of a fitness challenge with regular weigh-ins and measurements when I started this DVD so I can tell you that in about a week, I lost almost 1% body fat, .25 inch in my arms, 2 inches in my waist, and 1.5 in my booty! I call that results! I don't usually do all the sections of the DVD every time. I alternate days with the arm section and the barre sections, but always do the warm-up and the stretch/core sections. Those are important. (And it's ok to work your core everyday. For arms and legs it's better to alternate those.) Bonus? I did a little research on Tracey. She has two kids. That smokin' body had two kids. I'm annoyed by female (or male for that matter) instructors that claim "it's so easy to look like me!" when they've never experienced pregnancy and what that does to a body. Like a mechanic that never owned a car. Tracey also gained 55 lbs with each of her pregnancies. Hey! Me too. It's nice to know that you really can have a fit, healthy body after baby. I don't expect to have six-pack abs and a tiny bum again anytime in this lifetime, but Tracey Mallett is certainly helping me get closer! Couldn't ask for more.
I have been working out daily since college. I'm now 33 years old and consider myself in very good physical condition. I love long-distance running, step aerobics, yoga and rock climbing. I follow a low-sugar vegetarian diet, and watch my portion size. In short, I thought I was doing everything right. I was therefore resigned to my small belly pooch, my little saddlebags (curvy hips, if you're diplomatic about it) and the hint of cottage cheese on my bottom. I believed these were products of aging and motherhood, and I thought there was nothing I could do about these problem areas (beyond hiding them), until I got the Booty Barre workouts.
In the span of three weeks, I have dropped a pants size and firmed up my hips and thighs. My stomach is flatter and trimmer. I finally LOOK like I exercise as much as I do. That aside, I FEEL stronger and better. I look forward to my workouts again, and I love seeing the progress I am making in other areas (faster run times, better endurance, more upper body strength, improved balance and posture). Tracey Mallett's workouts are challenging, rewarding, fun, and best of all, they WORK. Highly recommended.
I started with the barre section and let me tell you it's tough but it goes by quickly. A lot of plies and lifting your legs and all these moves I'm not used to but loved the burn! Then I noticed I started with the second section and went back to the first since I was really enjoying the dvd, this also flowed by really quickly. I continued so forth until i finished each section of the entire workout sweating buckets. Your heartrate will not be very high but since the moves are tough you are really working your body out. After all the cardio and jumping in Insanity, I can definitely appreciate the focus and fluidity of this workout. I can definitely see and feel how doing this workout a few times a week can really tighten your body up and show results. Will definitely keep at it and try to see how I will incorporate this in my crazy workout schedule.
I'm so impressed I will review her other workout and more than likely purchase a few more. Tracey is a new Favorite!
P.S. Read a few comments about users finding Tracey's voice annoying, don't listen to those ppl. She's amazing, her voice is actually soothing, she doesn't talk too much and I felt she gave the appropriate amount of encouragement without being over the top.
