The best workout — ever!! I stumbled on Mary Helen Bowers series of DVD’s through Amazon and have enjoyed them, her streaming videos on her website, her book and her live classes. This is DVD is the foundation of my workouts and I alternate the other DVD and streaming videos along with a live class. I have been the DVD workout queen for over 15 years and never, ever, have I enjoyed the results I have from just 3 months of Ballet Beautiful. I have done them all and enjoyed many, however, I have the best posture, core strength, elongated strong legs and stamina I have ever had (and this is 1 1/2 years after falling from my horse and breaking a vertebrae) and above all – I look forward to my workouts, I enjoy them and feel great afterwards. In fact, I try to get in at least 30 minutes before going to ride, makes a huge difference for me in my performance. I am not sure where the guy who reviewed this is getting his comments from, but I can honestly say the proof is not only in the physical appearance, but I…

Great workout, there’s pros and cons I have to say first, the only person I really workout with anymore is Tracy Anderson because I’m very short and petite and I bulk very easily. I used to work out to everything from Jillian Michaels and Jackie Werner to Leslie Sansone or Jennifer Galardi. They were effective in making me stronger but I also looked a little too strong–BULK! I was getting in better shape, yet my were getting tighter from my quads getting overly muscular. Also, the fast paced high-intensity boot camp style of working out just wasn’t working for me anymore. When I discovered Tracy Anderson I was in love because she worked the accessory muscles that normal workouts don’t get to and she used the attitude position for a lot of her leg/butt workouts which is very ballet inspired, and she also did most of her leg workouts on the floor (on all fours) so instead of just squatting and putting all your weight on your legs, you were doing much more varied movements without the pressure on your legs and many…

There’s a totally surprise benefit (!) to this! I can’t do the entire workout – have to skip some sets here and there, but after 2 weeks, I see vast improvement. Awesome workout. I don’t care if it’s “boring” to some people. I agree with other reviewers who say they like that she’s not “pumping you up” with corny over-done motivation and cheesy workout music. No thanks. I like her simple, effective approach. She gets all target spots. It’s more than you even need. And it really DOES strengthen and tone withOUT bulking you up – love it. Really amazing. Bit torturous, and she is very serene while she drags you through set after set of reps but it does the trick. Not necessary to do every set, you can stop and stretch here and there, as she says. After all, I’m not a professional ballerina like her! Anyway, this works fantastic. I do it several times a week but skip the cardio at the end as it’s not necessary for me. I also don’t want to be as skinny as a ballerina. I like having a bit more curves than that, I like having more hips…
