Three Ballet Fitness DVD Giveaway: Ballet Body Workouts

February 08, 2013

Ready for something new to change up your fitness routine? I have the answer: Ballet Fitness DVD.. 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 Workoutand Ballet Body™: Core Workout will be released on DVD from Acacia on April 2, 2013 ($16.99 each, BUT, GUESS WHAT? I am hosting a GIVEAWAY and I will be giving away a copy of each of these (yes 3 Ballet Fitness DVD’s) before they even hit the stores. Read on!

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. Read dozen rave testimonials on her website.

Here are the three DVD’s I will be giving away:

1. 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.


2. UPPER BODY — Strengthen, 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.


3. 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.

To enter, leave a comment telling your favorite latest workout. Winner will be drawn on February 14 at 8 a.m CST. Happy Valentine’s Day from me!

Lately I have been taking spinning classes at the gym - but I definitely need more motivation for core work. This might help!

I've been Zumba-ing and it's so much fun! I love dance-inspired workouts and would kill for a ballerina bum... maybe this will be the extra kick in the rear I need!

Recently, I tried pole fitness and it is such a challenging core workout! The dance aspect makes it fun. This DVD ballet workout also looks like a great, effective program.

I recently got some tips from a few personal trainers and am mixing up my usual weight lifting routine (which I do along with various cardio classes and machines) with new ideas such as incorporating balance work at the same time as strength training.

My favorite workout is the Expresso bike machine (like a video game). Currently trying to do 'Gut Blaster' 1 x week. It's 11 miles of biking, but I'm always so proud of myself when I've reached the 6th and 11th mile that I raise my hands in the air like I've just won the tour de france (without doping of course!)

Fantastic post but I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this topic? I'd be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Cheers!

Fastidious answer back in return of this difficulty with genuine arguments and explaining all about that.

Hi there Dear, are you in fact visiting this web site on a regular basis, if so after that you will without douibt take fasticious experience.

Realizing he would need as much muscle as possible to defeat the Moran gang and ward off any other challengers to this empire, Capone recruited members of other ethnicities and races including Poles, Jews, blacks, and Irish. He's bouncing around on floor, did a casual triple full, and is the only guy so far to do something real on vault -- a couple handspring double fronts, to be exact. These two incidents are in reality patently meaningless.

You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be actually one thing that I think I'd never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely large for me. I'm looking forward in your subsequent put up, I'll attempt to get the hang of it!
September, 15 2014at 12:01 pm
I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my search for something regarding this.
September, 26 2014at 05:28 pm
An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do think that you ought to write more about this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but generally folks don't speak about these topics. To the next! Kind regards!!
