New York City Ballet: The Complete Workout

Workout like a New York City ballerina.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Ballerinas are known for their grace and stamina. New York City Ballet: The Complete Workout compiles two of the most famous workout routines created by the New York City Ballet to help you develop this grace, stamina, and strength. It is a slower paced workout, which is a nice alternative to many of the popular cardiovascular workout videos that are in the market today.

The first workout is for intermediate to advanced dancers and is very well structured. It begins with a warm up routine, followed by 17 exercises to help tone your entire body, while also making your movements more graceful and controlled. It also incorporates yoga and pilates with the ballet movements to add diversity to your workout.

The second workout also begins with a warm up routine, followed by floor work and dance steps. It is much more complex than the first workout, which makes it more difficult to follow if you are not familiar with ballet. You are more likely to enjoy this workout after you have developed your ballet skills by following the first workout.

If you do not want to follow one specific workout, you can create your own. This DVD allows you to create personalized routines that target specific muscle groups or that follow certain dance routines.

Following these workouts will help your burn calories, build muscles, and trim inches from your body. It is a very intense workout that may be too challenging for some, but for those who stick with it, it will give you results.

PRO
  • Both routines offer warm up sections to keep you from straining your muscles
  • These workouts will give you the grace, poise, and stamina of a ballerina
  • Personalized routines allow you to target specific areas or follow certain ballet steps
  • Soothing voice-over provides inspiration and relaxation throughout the video
CON
  • May be too difficult for some users
  • Difficult to move from one workout to the next on the DVD
  • Can be boring at times
DIET and NUTRITION

New York City Ballet: The Complete Workout does not provide any tips or recommendations concerning diet and nutrition.

EXERCISE

You could use this DVD as an alternative to the higher-tempo workout videos that are highly popular today to meet your weekly recommendations of 30-minutes of exercise, five times a week.

CONCLUSION

This video is a great option for those who love watching ballet and want to workout in a similar fashion to the dancers in the New York City Ballet. It can be very challenging at times, but the soothing voice-overs will help you stay motivated and continue in your workout.

Ballerinas are famous for their poise and grace, and by following this workout on a regular basis, you are likely to develop these same skills. You are also likely to develop long, lean muscles, trim inches from your entire body, and burn calories through the intense workouts. It will also help you improve your posture, since proper posture is required for completion of many of the moves.

I would like to know how many calories they both burn? Right now I'm doing the first one and would like to be able to calculate it into my goals.
