Ellen Barret Fat Burning Fusion Review

Today's Review: Fat Burning Fusion
Ellen Barrett, 2007 **** (4 of 5 stars)

Ellen leads this 46 min barefoot pilates, cardio, and mind body fusion workout. Ellen works out in a spacious room with hardwood floors & a stage in the background. There are two background exercisers, one showing easier modifications. You wont need any equipment for this workout. Great music! The dvd is chaptered & you play all or select the desired chapter from the menu.

This is a very unique fusion workout. All the moves were very flowing and all transitioned very smoothly. Ellen does a great job of adding in some cardio to standing pilates work. She does an excellent job of providing form pointers & stressing how important good form is in this workout.

Exercises include: warmup, travelling pliets w/ arm movements, swan extensions, wrapping twist, glute squeezes, up-down zig zags, squat circles, pilates threading, mermaid with knee pulls, butterfly, reach up- punch across, torso circles, spider reaches, shifting side lunges, and finishes with a quick stretch.

I would rate this a low intermediate fusion workout that is perfect for days you want to do a pilates type workout but also want to burn some calories. Great in whole or in parts as an add-on to other workouts. I really really like Ellen, great sunny disposition, great cuing & form pointers. I look forward to trying more from her. Received this dvd to review.

  1. OH what a CAKE! My entire fam is loving it. :)

  2. Great cake!

    I got this Ellen DVD for Christmas and haven't done it yet! I haven't even previewed it..life got in the way. lol

    I am so excited for some new step workouts! That is an awesome deal and I've watched both the step workouts and liked them. =)

  3. Thank you!

    I like "amped" up pilates type w/o's better than straight forward pilates so this is a winner for me.

    Great deal on Jenny's w/o's! Thanks for sharing on FB!

  4. Wow, impressive cake, you didn't freehand Super Man did you?

  5. I am in awe of that cake! And it sounds so delicious too. Yum! Great review of Ellen's workout - I must pull that one out.
