AIR BAR EXERCISE DVD
***My Personal Review***
This exercise DVD is unlike any I have ever come across. It teaches you how to use any kind of "air bar" to exercise just like you would in a ballet studio with an attached bar. The nice part about these exercises is that you can do them anywhere AND because most people don't have a bar in their home, they don't have to go to the gym to find one. You can relax and exercise in the comfort and privacy of your own home. I noticed a difference between this and regular exercising by way of working other muscles that you wouldn't normally work with a regular bar - because you have to HOLD the bar so you are not just limply hanging onto something on the wall. It forces your extra muscles to work out just as much as the rest of your body. So in my opinion you are actually getting a BETTER workout by using this than a regular program. Plus once you learn the routines you can do this ANYWHERE :) On vacation, lunchtime at work, breaks, whenever and wherever you want because you don't need the extra equipment! You will learn how to do a lot of great exercises but they are not easy - I am not used to working out and I had to do the first few for a while before I was able to move on! It's definitely intense - so if you are not used to working out just take it slow and that is just another great thing about this DVD - you can go at your own pace and you don't have to feel like you are trying to "keep up" with everyone else in a class. You can do the exercises as many times as you need and really get them down pat before moving on :)
It is high intensity but also low impact - so for me that was better - I am okay with intensity but I fractured my feet 3 years ago and they are still frail and I also have a lot of back problems. But these were great with my back issues because it teaches you how to keep your back straight without having to rely on the bar. Awesome for me because I have trouble with posture. This DVD is doctor and yoga teacher approved and comes with a 30 day instruction set for 30 minutes a day workouts to lose weight. I also received a diet plan which was very helpful and juice recipes which is AWESOME! Lots of extras to help aid in your weight loss.
