ICE: Chiseled Lower Body 
Cathe Friedrich, 2016

This 48 minute routine is lower body strength & cardio blast intervals. Cathe workout in her studio with 4 backgrounders. Some modifications options are offered. You will need dumbbells for this routine. It is fully chaptered, contains premixes, ICY Core 2, a Blizzard Blast, and Muscle Meltdown Shoulders.

After a warm-up, exercises include: a jack drill, hover squats, skaters & jacks, step out squats, frog hops, low runners lunge, cardio plie hop to lunges, curtsy-crescent - squat, shuffle & plyo 180 hop squats, static lunges, jack cross knee pulls, lunge series, heel click jacks, side lunges, cardio squat abductions, dips, flying jacks, deadlifts, and a 
cooldown stretch.

Cathe uses pretty light weights in this one, using heavier I rate this a high intermediate to advanced routine. Cathe keeps things moving right along in this and offers plenty of tempo variations to keep you interested & your muscles working. There are a lot of jack drills in this one. I did not receive this DVD to review.

Mat Mist: All Natural Essential Oil Yoga Mat & Exercise Equipment Cleansing Mist


Mat Mist is an all-natural yoga mat spray that leaves your exercise accessories clean and fresh,  without having to wipe down! Just spray and your mat is freshened & clean. Best of all they are all natural, aromatherapeutic, and contain essential oil. I love that the sprays are made from ablends of essential oils that are known to disinfect your mat and awaken your senses. Available in a variety of appealing fragrances, you will find one you love! I am a huge fan of using essential oils and elliminating chemicals from my daily routine & mat mist makes cleansing my workout equipment easy & chemical free. Not to mention the benefits of using essential oils. 


After your yoga routine, ab work, or any floor work, you spray your mat, roll it up and go. Another thing I love about Mat Mist is that it minimizes the waste from typical cleansing products that require paper towels and disposable towelettes, that just end up in our land fills. Just spray and go with mat mist!!!

Check  out their line of fragrances and choose what best represents where we are that day –whether in need of invigoration, relaxation, or empowerment, they have a blend for you and all your moods. Mat Mist offers three scented blends to match with yogis’ preferences. Each of the essential oil combinations included in the line are known for their antibiotic, antiseptic, antifungal, and/or antiviral properties. All oils are therapeutic grade, distilled carefully to retain the plant constituents known for medicinal properties. 

The scents are gentle and work quickly, so they dont linger around. The scented flavor profiles include: Sandalwood, Lavender, Geranium; Thyme, Douglas Fir; and Lemon Myrtle, Peppermint, Vetiver. These three blends engage the senses, creating a fresh atmosphere. Sandalwood, Lavender, Geranium is known to ease anxiety and help calm the mind. Thyme, Douglas Fir is warming, stimulating, and uplifting, and Lemon Myrtle, Peppermint, Vetiver is known for its cleansing aroma and balancing properties.



The Mat Mist line also includes Colloidal Silver Water, which has been used for decades as one of the most potent and safe natural disinfectants. Colloidal Silver not only stops pathogen enzyme growth, but also promotes healing of destroyed or infected tissue while maintaining healthy bacteria. Unlike many cleaning products of its strength, Colloidal Silver has no overpowering scent or harsh qualities.

RIPPEDISM is a 60 day program consisting of 17 streaming workouts available on the RIPPEDISM website.  The workouts are perfect for home use and dont require a lot of space or equipment. The RIPPEDISM workouts are only 35 minutes each, but they are intense, modifications are available! With the RIPPEDISM program you will get everything you need to get ripped in only 60 days, and the best part, the program is only $19.95! You retain access to the streaming package when you purchase for one year! Read all my RIPPEDISM reviews here.

RIPPEDISM: Back Breacher ~ Back & Cardio

Jeff Hirsh and Stu Lopoten, 2016

Stu & Jeff both lead this 35 min back & cario workout. The guys alternate performing exercises, and training in their brick studio. You will need an optional pullup bar & dumbbells for this workout. The workout structure is: a round of 3 exercises: 30 seconds back work, 30 seconds back burnout, one min cardio, followed by 30 sec rest done 2 times.

After a warm-up, pull-ups, row, plyo runners lunge, chin ups, 180 surfer hops, dual grip pullups, hammer rows, baseball drill, deadlifts, single leg tuck jumps, pike donkey kicks, weighted supermans, rainbow up & over floor touches, 
and a cool-down & stretch.

I rate this an advanced routine but the guys offer a TON of modification options. While having a pull-up bar is ideal you def do not need one as they show dumbbell options for all. This is one of my favorite routines so far- tons of unique exercises and so much fun, while working hard! I love the strength/ cardio interval sequencing. 
 I received this workout to review.

NEW From Fitness Favorites Fitprime & Kickbutt Parts: QuickStart - 4 Day 4 Way Mini Fusion

Fitness Favorites presents digitally remastered FIRM, FitPrime, & KickButt favorites, some for the first time EVER on dvd, and some new collections!  Stay tuned for detailed reviews of more awesome Fitness Favorite dvds and below is my review of FitPrime Kickbutt Parts: 6 Day Trainer 6 Day Slam a new compilation available on 2 DVDs in one sturdy DVD case.  Read my reviews below of these two discs below.


FitPrime Kickbutt Parts: QuickStart - 4 Day 4 Way Mini Fusion 
Melissa Grill, Heidi Tanner, Tamela Hastie, Keli Roberts, Kimberly Spreen, 2015

This set contains 2 DVDs, each with eight 15 minutes parts routines and a workout calendar on the back of the DVD case. You will need dumbbells, a tall step, a dowel, and a yoga block for these routines. You can select one workout from the main menu. Each routine has its own short warm up & cool down. 

Disc one is KickButt and contains eight workouts. Each one contains some upper body, some lower body, cardio, core work, and also some stretching and yoga. Disc One contains:

  • KickButt Volume 1 Day 1 Chest & Tris
  • KickButt Volume 1 Day 2: Legs
  • KickButt Volume 1 Day 3: Back & Bi's
  • KickButt Volume 1 Day 4 Butt
Disc two is FitPrime and contains eight workouts. Each one contains some upper body, some lower body, cardio, core work, and also some stretching and yoga. Disc Two contains:

  • FitPrime Volume 2 Day 1 Chest & Tris
  • FitPrime Volume 2 Day 2: Legs
  • FitPrime Volume 2 Day 3: Back & Bi's
  • FitPrime Volume 2 Day 4 Butt


These workouts really contain a ton of great footage including: fun kickboxing routines, 4 limb work, plenty of great core work, isolation strength exercises, and simple choreo cardio routines. Each title is body part specific but the workouts really work the entire body, include some stretching, cardio and some yoga. Low on time to workout but want to "get it all in" these are the routines for you. Fitness Favorites seasoned instructors provide excellent instruction as always. These are non-dominant trainers, meaning that you work your "weaker" side first. 

I rate these high beginner to low intermediate routines. Great to string together for a longer workout. They are pretty mellow and cover a lot of genres in only 15 minutes each. They are more of a total body workout than body part specific routines. Great workouts for those days when you dont have a ton of time but want to get an all inclusive feel good workout in. I received this DVD set to review.

Cathe leads this cardio & strength workout in her studio with 4 backgrounders. You will need dumbbells, a ball, and a step for this workout. It is fully chaptered, contains premixes, ICY Core 1, Muscle Meltdown Biceps, and a Blizzard Blast. Each 60 second interval contains cardio, upper body, lower body, and core

After a warm up exercises include, cardio step lunges, lunges off the step, overhead tri drops, straddle jumps, marching sumos, incline pushups, plank arm swimmers, straddle jump & burpee, dips off the step, overhead press & upright row, weighted side bends, bicep series, lunge & twist, one arm burpees, side raise series, split leg crunches, step knee up & touch back, squat knee twists, single arm row, and a stretch.


I felt the cardio was advanced and the strength work high intermediate. I like the format and the workout hit all the muscle groups. So far, this is one of my favs in the set- enough strength for a strength workout and also an added bonus of cardio. I did not receive this DVD to review.
