Tracey Staehle Hi/ Lo Med Ball Review




Fit by Tracey began in 2006 when Tracey filmed her first three workouts with Greg Twombly producing.  In 2007, Tracey filmed three more workouts with Greg and later that summer took her crew to film with Mindy Mylrea.  Tracey loves having the flexibility to work with such experienced and talented producers.  “Change is something that occurs daily, especially in fitness. It’s important to see what else is out there, learn as much as you can and be the best you can be,” Tracey says, "It’s important for me to create workout DVDs that aren't carbon copies of every other workout on the market.  My goal is to make fitness fun – for everyone, no matter what shape you are in.  I enjoy making workouts that are creative and intense; you have to do the work to see the results.”

Review: Hi/Lo Med Ball
Tracey Staehle, 2008

Tracey leads this 57 min hi lo cardio workout with 2 background exercisers in a super cute "summer house" type set. You will only need an optional med ball for the two 5 min med ball sections. The music in this workout is ROCKIN', super upbeat and makes you want to MOVE!

I found this workout very unique and fun. The exercises were easy to catch onto but not repetitive or boring- great balance! I love that she combines athletic cardio, kickboxing, old school hi-lo (with a flair), and a lot of good standing core work mixed into the cardio. Great variety of moves and great energy!Tracie adds in tempo changes to keep things interesting! Love that the 1st med ball section (standing core work) comes in after about 30 min of cardio- great way to re-energize, then on to more cardio and finishes with a floor ab section utilizing the med ball.

Cardio Exercises include: elbow strike, hopping pendulums moving forward, front kick w/ a floor touch, hip twists, fast feet, kick-ball change, double run, lots of great punch combos- adding in plyos and feet movements to keep the heart pumping, plyo lunges, power jacks, side oblique knee crunch, fast bob & weave, knee ups w/ punches, dribble- shuffle, ham curls, pony, etc. Med Ball Work Includes: (standing) C-curve for upper & then lower abs, golf swing, torso twist, pendulum ball swings, squat w/ bi curl, (floor) knee crunches, ball extended twists, C curve ball drops, on your side- scissor legs & knee pull, side oblique pulses, etc.

I would rate this is a solid intermediate workout done as is- you can easily adjust your impact & intensity to suit your needs. I found this fun & fresh! Great energy, great music, lots of fun & the time FLEW by! Tracey really found a great balance of choreo and exercises to keep it interesting but not complicated. Tracie does a great job with form pointers & you can really tell she is having a great time. Def a keeper!!! I received this dvd to review.
