Review: Attitude Tu Ballet & Pilates Fusion
Bernadette Giorgi, 2008

Bernadette leads with a group of background exercisers in a nice open white room. The 52 minute dvd is chaptered VERY well. Optional equipment includes a resistance band and a small weighted ball. The dvd also includes tutorials for every segment that can be reached from the dvds main menu.Between segments an inspirational quote comes up on the screen. Great music!

Center: (13 min) This is a standing pilates & ballet fusion section that doesnt use any equipment. Exercises include: a nice pliet series with plenty of variety and various arm movements, flowing side bends, rondijon, lots of great balance work, portibra, and rhythmic lunges. This is a nice flowing segment that really hits your lower body.

Center with Bands: (14 min) a resistance band is utilized in this standing pilates & ballet fusion segment. Exercises include: band curls lifting onto your toes, flowing lunges with the band, side lunges, etc. Using the band really helped with the balance work and I def felt it in my shoulders!

Mat Work: (21 min) The mat work utilizes the ball in many of the exercises and really hits your core! Bernadette does a great job of using the ball in unique ways to enhance your workout. Exercises include: ball roll ups, ball saw, leg drops, criss cross, single leg extension, double attitude, teaser, sidekick series including leg lifts, leg shoots, and leg circles, bi curl with the ball, ball attitudes, and concludes with a 4 min stretch.

I rate this a beginner/intermediate workout that is really suitable for most all fitness levels. Bernadette offers wonderful form pointers & her cuing is excellent. These workouts really flow well and will definitely hit your muscles in a new way. Invigorating workout that leaves you well worked out and has no dread factor! Tons of time options- great in part, in whole, or added on to other workouts! I received this dvd to review.
