Barlates: Overload Training

Overload Training contains 4 workouts from Linda @ Barlates. These workouts are not available for free on YouTube. You can purchase them on Amazon, Total Fitness DVDs or as DVDs or downloads from Linda's website. The idea behind these workouts is that you "overload" whatever muscle group Linda is focusing on, working it to full fatigue before … Continue reading Barlates: Overload Training

Barlates: Energy Flow/Barre

Energy Flow: Barre is a tough workout from Linda Wooldridge! It was tough for me it least--it completely fried my legs. I hit lower body burn out multiple times. But I loved it! Linda worked me hard. I got cardio and barre strength work in this workout. There is some hopping in this workout but … Continue reading Barlates: Energy Flow/Barre

Barlates: Energy Flow/Sculpt

Another excellent workout in Linda Wooldridge's Flow series. This one is part of the Energy Flow collection. The title of this one is Sculpt and I feel that is a pretty accurate title. Though she only uses one 5 pound dumbbell, she still works your muscles hard. Unfortunately, I am still limited to lifting no … Continue reading Barlates: Energy Flow/Sculpt

Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Active

Wow--another excellent and intense workout from Linda Wooldridge. This one is part of her Dynamic Flow series. The title of this one is Active and I imagine that is because of the cardio factor. I was working very hard. Keep in mind, other than walking, I haven't been working out for several weeks (until this … Continue reading Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Active

Barlates: Fusion Flow/Dynamic

I am loving Linda Wooldridge's new series. She has created several new series; each series contains 4 workouts and they are all perfect for my current fitness level (recovering from major surgery). In fact, I emailed her a while ago and three of these new series (Dynamic Flow, Fusion Flow and Energy Flow) will all … Continue reading Barlates: Fusion Flow/Dynamic

Fit Tower: Legs, Glutes & Core

Legs, Glutes & Core is one of Cathe's advanced Fit Tower workouts. The only equipment you need for this workout is all of the Fit Tower equipment: the Fit Tower, a flat 6 foot resistance band, a resistance loop (firewalker) and a yoga mat. This workout also includes an 11:30 minute core bonus--this is in … Continue reading Fit Tower: Legs, Glutes & Core

Total Body Balance

Total Body Balance is a collection of 4 short workouts from Jessica Smith. These are true feel good workouts. They are all about 20 minutes long and they are all low impact. There is another exerciser with Jessica named Asha who shows more advanced versions of the exercises. However, even the more advanced versions of … Continue reading Total Body Balance

Fit Tower

The Fit Tower is a piece of exercise equipment from Cathe Friedrich. Though Cathe created and leads these workouts you cannot buy it from Cathe's website. You can get it from Amazon or from a special Fit Tower website. I never expected to buy the Fit Tower. A long time ago Cathe had a different Fit … Continue reading Fit Tower

The Firm: Express Total Body Shaping

Express Total Body Shaping is a stand alone/add on Firm workout. It did not come included in a system (at least not that I remember). It uses the sculpting stick from Body Sculpting System 2, but I am pretty sure it came out the same time as the Firm Box system came out (Firm Box … Continue reading The Firm: Express Total Body Shaping
