GIVEAWAY: Tracie Long Focus: Breakthrough Review & Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. Please check out other Fitness For The Rest of Us giveaways by clicking on the "giveaways" tab in my header.


You are all in for a real treat- today's giveaway is courtesy of Tracie Long Fitness! Keep Reading to find out how you can win a copy of Tracies Focus Series, Breakthrough dvd!!!  I love Tracie- she is one of my all time fav instructors and I love med ball work so this is a real GEM!!!! 

Building on herr roots from the FIRM and decades of experience in the industry, teaching, managing and marketing fitness, Tracie has developed her LONGevity series with women like herself in mind. Busy, family oriented career women who often neglecti their own goals for health and longevity.



Review: Focus: Breakthrough, Vol. 5
Tracie Long, 2010

This is a 30 minute workout that is chaptered into one 20 min cardio medball workout (Have a Ball) and a 10 minute core workout (Whittle Your Middle). Tracie works out alone on a raised platform in a gym style set w/ brick walls. You will need a 2.5 to 6 lb medball for this workout.

Tracie does a great job of blending medball cardio with functional fitness moves to create a smooth flowing sweat fest! She utlizes the med ball in fun & unique ways to enhance both the cardio and functional exercises. She includes some great balance work and focuses on stopping/ starting moves.

Exercises include: After a nice warmup you move into: hip shift hops, jacks, plyo lunges, cross county skiing, ball weaves while walking forward & skating back, jumping heel clicks, figure 8's, jump- side lunge, balance knee hops, crescent lunge w/ hops, squat- floor touch- overhead push, balance knee ball passes, shot puts, windmill, chops, knee pulls and ends with a quick stretch.

If you are a fan of Tracie and/or med ball workouts- this is a must have. I feel that she improved on (the much loved) TLT's by adding more intensity and more cardio in this workout. She does an excellent job of blending the two (cardio & function fitness) genre's into a well flowing cardio workout. Tracies cuing and form, as always, are impeccable. She does a fantastic job of creating fun, high energy workouts! I received this dvd to review. I rate this a solid intermediate workout.
