Movie Reviews

Killer toning, yoga, ballet-inspired, stretching workout
Lena, LMT | Nassau, NY | 08/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is set a a very spacious stage w/modern/minimal simple background. She has 5 women behind her, one an older woman all in average to very good shape. The music is good & fast, usual aerobics synthezier, but doess't bother me at all & I'm picky about music.
The workout is killer, said to be for intermediate to advanced. She doesn't let you cool down between exercises in this entire 60 min session. You need some good muscles for leg lifts, deep squats or holding your body on 1 hand & leg or so.
I don't normally like plain aerobics, but since each of all the exercises have an obvious benefit like stretching, toning/strengthening, balance & most do more then 2 of these or more at once & all done fast-paced with many different movements, you can't not like it. She is also great about body awareness... she knows what feels good, what the body needs next to balance out.

Collagevideo com has a trailer for this & good description:

These routines have the grace of ballet and the intensity of "hard core" body sculpting. After a flowing, rhythmic warm-up, you'll move into the dance-inspired standing toning. Examples: a squat becomes a relevé. Or a plié becomes an extended-leg plié, which then rotates (so the entire sequence almost seems "choreographed"). The floor section is also unique - a blend of yoga, Pilates and traditional toning (e.g. a downward dog transitions into a plank; that plank turns into a "side plank" and it all evolves into a push-up)."
Nice workout

"This dvd is one hour... but you can divide it into three different workouts. The first workout is one of the best core workouts I have ever done."
Great dancers workout

"This is one of my favourite workouts. Kari Anderson manages to be fun, upbeat and encouraging without being annoying and I will definitely look out for more workouts from her.

The workout is intermediate/advanced but she gives modifications where needed and always encourages you to go at your own pace. This 60 workout really goes by really fast. I especially like that she has packed a lot of exercises in with low repetitions so you don't get bored whilst still getting a total body workout. There is a very good 10 minute stretch at the end that I often do at the end of my other workouts. This one's definitely a keeper!"
Strengthens, burns calories, increases flexibility and comfo

"My title says it all. To sum it up: this is the workout I reach for if I am totally stressed. I have only done the floorwork once though and mainly bought it for the standing work which is what I am reviewing here. The floorwork is tough, but when I have more time i plan to do it again. i believe it would provide excellent results, I just am not really into floor type exercises of that kind."
