Title: Core Fusion Collection
Running time: 150 minutes
Release date: January 5, 2010
Review source: Acorn Media
Contained in this collection: BODY SCULPT which targets arms and shoulders, glutes, hips thighs and abs; THIGHS AND GLUTES which works your largest muscle groups [so you burn fat and lose inches]; and then PILATES PLUS which utilizes a “deep-toning” approach.
I love these DVDs for working out at home. They are challenging and work your core and particular muscle groups. Core Fusion is a combination of yoga, Pilates and isometrics. My legs were shaking after I did glutes and thighs! I feel great after I do this.
The point is to tone the muscles without bulk. They work toward a goal of lean and tight. That’s ideal. Each DVD contains five 10 minute workouts, so you can do all five or pick and choose a few to do. I usually do three and have a great and intense 30-minute workout.
Elisabeth Halfpapp and Fred DeVito work well together and show you variations to each exercise to that you can do the easier version or the more challenging version. I particularly liked the pretzel on the thighs and glutes DVD! It worked muscles that you rarely use: the hip flexors and felt so great!
