(This DVD Rules!)

 

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

Thank you all so much for my birthday wishes from last week—it made me feel very special! My big brother came out spend the day with me and I have been basically eating out every meal since this past Friday so I will be on strict “Paleo” mode this week to get back into fighting shape. Anyhoo—I have a real shirt & sweet Vlog today talking about the cool documentary I saw on my birthday plus my next giveaway which just happen to be a workout DVD from the “Ballet Body” series. (In fact, two giveaways but you need to see the video to know what I am talking about!) So enough of my yapping and let’s get to it, shall we?

Featured on my Vlog this week:

  • On my birthday I decided to see a movie about a movie–Room 237 which is a documentary about The Shining. You may not know this about me but I am a huge Stephen King fan and love both the film and the novel it is based upon very much. But I had NO idea how much other people thought about this movie or what different things in it symbolize—you have to see it to believe it for yourself! I give it a “thumbs up” and say that you should rent on In Demand right away.
  • My next reviews (too many magazines are in my life people!) including SELF, Health, Women’s Health, Shape, Men’s Health, Oxygen, Men’s Fitness and on and on and on…
  •  My Ballet Body workout DVD giveaway featuring the amazing Leah Sarago.


 

Here is more information the “Ballet Body” DVDs:

BALLET BODY™:

UPPER BODY WORKOUT, LOWER BODY WORKOUT, and CORE WORKOUT with Leah Sarago

SILVER SPRING, Md – As ballet-inspired workouts continue to gain popularity, Acacia is excited to expand the distribution for one of the most popular workouts, the Ballet Body™ series from Leah Sarago. Exercisers can lose inches while building lean muscles with movements inspired by ballet, dance, Pilates, and yoga. Ballet Body™: Upper Body Workout, Ballet Body™: Lower Body Workout and Ballet Body™: Core Workout will be released on DVD from Acacia on April 2, 2013 ($16.99 each, AcaciaLifestyle.com). Designed by certified strength and conditioning specialist Leah Sarago, these workouts provide a long and lean physique by integrating traditional body-weight resistance exercises with muscle-elongating techniques. Suitable for all fitness levels, these workouts draw on isometrics, the stretch-reflex principle, and eccentric muscle-contraction training for optimal results. Each workout is sold separately as a DVD single, so exercisers can choose which section of their body they want to focus on or purchase all three to get a defined upper body, sculpted lower body, and defined abs.

CORE WORKOUT — Flatten your midsection and develop core strength with this dynamic, Pilates-inspired workout. You’ll start with standing balance exercises and movement sequences before progressing into variations on side planks and mat work. Complete the routine with exercises to support the spine and back, along with deep stretches for flexibility. If you want strong abs and a bikini-ready belly, this incredible core workout is for you! Approx. 45 min.

UPPER BODYStrengthen, sculpt, and define your upper body with this dynamic, results-oriented workout. Start with mat exercises for the arms and core, then grab a pair of light hand weights for some dance-inspired movements. You’ll improve your muscle definition, posture, and strength without getting big or bulky. It’s the ultimate workout for a sculpted, sleek, and graceful upper body. Approx. 46 min.

LOWER BODY — Get the dancer’s legs you’ve always wanted with this calorie-torching barre workout. The muscle-sculpting moves lengthen the thighs, lift the backside, and sculpt the backs of the legs for sleek definition and a slim figure. After the workout, relax into a 13-minute yoga- and dance-centered stretch. Approx. 54 min.

Leah Sarago is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist® with a BS in Exercise Science and Dance. She has starred in several top-selling fitness DVDs, trained NFL athletes, and travels the country leading workshops and trainings featuring her Ballet Body™ techniques. Leah previously self-distributed the Ballet Body DVDs in 2012.

  1. Love your Vlogs. I can’t believe you have 30 and I have 1. I need to get off my ass and Vlog. LOL! Oh, and I’d love to win the DVD too.

  2. I’m really struggling lately. I still exercise, but barely. I’ve also been eating terribly and I’m gaining weight. 🙁 I think my hormones are going crazy, but I can’t let that be an excuse. I’m trying hard to get back into the swing of things. I really need to work on my legs (saddlebags, ugh!) and abs. I’d love to win the core DVD. It sounds like it could kick my butt into gear. Please enter me to win. In the meantime, let me get off this computer and go for a WALK!

  3. No need to enter me but just wanted to say HI & look forward to your magazine reviews! 🙂 Thx for the KIND bar win too!

    I want to explain again my lack of videos.. I love the camera but I have been struggling for a couple months at least with cystic acne on my face & very hard to cover well what is has done. Age sh*t! Pictures are easier to change than videos in terms of making us look better… AND on top of all that, I just have a major reaction about a week ago to something that I am still trying to figure out & bumps everywhere – UGH! Anyway, I will make videos but I have to get past this. Aging sucks! 😉
