The Yin Yang Fusion Workout DVD Review

Here is your chance to win a super versatile, fun, and fat burning workout from two of my favorite fitness instructors, Jessica Smith & Guillermo Gomez:  The Yin Yang Fusion Workout. This workout is super unique and really has something for every exerciser! Enter below to win a copy for yourself!

The Yin Yang Fusion Workout
Guillermo Gomez & Jessica Smith, 2011 ***** (5 of 5 stars)

This dvd offers five 15 minute workouts that you can select from the main menu or play all. The dvd is a fusion of martial arts, chi gong, yoga, sculpting & pilates. They workout together in one segment but individually in the other 4. The set is a cute open space with framed Japanese calligraphy in the background. You won't need any equipment and each segment includes a short w/u & c/d.

Cardio: Expansion & Contraction: Guillermo leads this active kickboxing cardio workout. Exercises include ham curls, various punches & punch combos, knee strikes, & elbow strike. Guillermo does a great job of creating a fun combo that is easy to catch onto and not overly choreographed.

Total Body: Strength & Flexibility: Jessica leads this active body weight resistance workout. Exercises include: horse stance & punches, round house kick, balance kicks, 1 leg squat, runners lunge to balance raise, pike pushups, full form squats, bridge w/ side reach, side plank & side kicks, donkey kicks. Jessica really keeps this workout moving along & includes a lot of unique exercises.

Lower Body: Rhythm & Balance: Guillermo leads this segment, includes some nice lower body resistance moves and keeps you moving. Exercises include: squats, walking side kicks, side knee pulls, repeater knees, bob & weave, knee pull & spin around. This is a fun little routine that includes some lower body work.

Core: Power & Flow: Jessica leads this standing & floor core routine. Exercises include: side leg raise, unique standing knee pull, large figure 8's, runners knee pull, v sit w/ crescent kick, bridge crunches, sit up & punch, side plank w/ arm & leg circles, plank pikes, and superman elbow pulls. Includes some great balance work & lots of unique moves.

Relax: Movement & Stillness: Guillermo leads this chi gong inspired routine & Jessica works out with him. Exercises include: chi breathing techniques, active stretching, purification breathing exercises, chataranga, up dog, low runners lunge to a balance warrior, and concludes with a seiza seated relaxation position. This is a very unique segment- great for relaxation.

I rate these workouts intermediate but are appropriate for most all fitness levels. Both instructors do a fantastic job w/ form pointers & their cuing is spot on. Tons of variety & time options and so many unique and fun exercises! I really enjoyed all the segments & see myself using this dvd a lot. I received this dvd to review.

  52. "The idea behind Yin Yang Fusion is to train with a well-rounded workout that maintains a sense of harmony, not stress, within your body. “I’ve had to tell women to stop working out in order to lose weight. If you are constantly in a state of stress – from your job, your spouse, the kids, and then heading to a killer boot camp class after a long day, you are just setting yourself up for adrenal overload, which can cause everything from sugar cravings to insomnia,” says Smith."
    This was very meaningful to me! So many of us overworkout and cant figure out why the weight does not go! Jessica and Gullermo are about whole balance and this is the key to not only fitness but longevity. Thank you!

  56. suebunting1977@gmail.com something I learned is According to traditional Chinese medicine, the heart is considered a fire energy or “yin” organ, responsible for circulating the life force of the body. Many Chinese doctors believe the tongue and the face are tied to the heart, and may be able to diagnose heart or blood conditions by examining them.
