JessicaSmithTV: Feel Good Fusion

Feel Good Fusion is another one of Jessica Smith‘s awesome flowing workouts that creep up on you. It seems easy at first, but then some of your muscles start burning and you start perspiring a little. Jessica creates a lot of workouts that surprise you. This one uses elements of barre, pilates and yoga. You are getting flexibility, strength, mobility and balance in this workout. Even some mild, low impact (and low intensity) cardio. As already mentioned, I even started perspiring a tiny bit. Now, this workout isn’t a calorie burner, but as Jessica says in the course of the workout, every workout you do doesn’t have to be a fat blaster. There are a lot of reasons to workout and this workout checks a lot of boxes. Plus, it feels good, just as the title promises. Peanut is present for this workout, crashed out on the floor the entire workout. This workout was posted in February 2018. I am not sure how I missed it. This definitely seems like something that would have called to me back in 2018.

***As I was posting this to other pages on my blog I discovered I have done this workout before! I loved it back in 2019. I guess I need to take it out of my “need to try” folder on YouTube…. and reference my own blog before spending time double reviewing workouts.***

Feel Good Fusion is 33:33 minutes; 2:45 minute warm up and 4:30 minute stretch. No equipment needed but if you are balance challenged like me, you might want to have a chair nearby to assist with some of the moves.
