Xtend Barre

Unlike many other streaming sites, Openfit did not offer anything special when shelter in place became a thing. I was pretty disappointed because of all the streaming sites out there, I was most interested in sampling Openfit due to its Xtend Barre workouts. All it offered was its normal 14 day free trial. I almost … Continue reading Xtend Barre

JessicaSmithTV: HIIT Strength Pilates Yoga Mash Up

HIIT Strength Pilates Yoga Mash Up is an incredible workout from Jessica Smith that, as you can tell by the title, mashes a lot of different types of modalities into a single (long) workout. This workout was amazing! One of the best workouts I've ever done--and it is free for everyone on YouTube! Thank you … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: HIIT Strength Pilates Yoga Mash Up

Svelte U: Workout One

Tracey Mallett has created two new workout DVDs. They are both titled Svelte U. One is Workout One and the other is Workout Two; however they both contain three 20 minute workouts. This is obviously a review of the first DVD. Though it does contain 3 workouts, I did them all in one session, back … Continue reading Svelte U: Workout One

Popsugar: Fat Burning Pilates

This is my first 30 minute workout by Popsugar and I didn't know what to expect. I was intrigued by the title and the little bit of it I watched. A sort of cardio-pilates workout. And I will be honest, I did not expect this to be super hard. Well--it was! This was a very … Continue reading Popsugar: Fat Burning Pilates


PiYo is an interesting concept and one that I actually had zero interest in when it first appeared. However, the more I heard about it, the more intrigued I became. Plus, I really like Chalene Johnson. PiYo is a fusion of yoga and pilates into fluid movement. It is strength + cardio+ flexibility using only your body weight. … Continue reading PiYo

BodyFit 360 (Vol 1)

BodyFit 360 is one of Michelle Dozois new workouts. It came out the same time as Cardio Interval Burn Remix and Cardio Strength Remix. I pre-ordered those two, but at the time, had no interest in BodyFit 360. That has changed. I am about 2 months into Chalene Johnson's PiYo and loving it. It occurred … Continue reading BodyFit 360 (Vol 1)


There is a somewhat long story behind me getting this workout and I will try to keep it brief so as not to bore readers. I have been intrigued with this workout for a very long time. But I held off purchasing it for a host of reasons--it is not cheap ($22.49 on Amazon), I … Continue reading Piloxing
