Review of Core Fusion: Lean & Toned

While doing this DVD, Core Fusion: Lean & Toned, you may cry for mercy and want to throw things at the television. After you tackle it a few times, though, you will be shrieking with excitement at the fantastic results it gets.
   Lean & Toned is the fifth DVD from husband-and-wife team Elisabeth Halfpapp and Fred DeVito.
   I didn't think it was possible for Liz and Fred's workouts to get tougher, but I think they've managed to do it with this DVD.
   It's more demanding because of its pace. It's quite a bit faster than the four previous DVDs, and for that reason, I recommend that people who want to take Liz and Fred for a spin through their living room try one of the other DVDs first, in which the two take a slower pace and more time for instruction.
   With a previous DVD, you'll get a good understanding of their exercise philosophy, which is that form is most important, then the number of repetitions you can do. Finally, always do only what you can and be proud of it.
   The idea of this DVD having a faster pace, I would imagine, is to give users a better idea of how Fred and Liz might lead an actual live Core Fusion class in one of their numerous Exhale spas across the U.S. and the Caribbean. This DVD, unlike their previous ones, have other people accompanying them.
   Core Fusion is Fred and Liz's combination of Pilates, Lotte Berk Method, yoga and dance, and the 10-minute segments on this DVD use these methods to target and tone the thighs, glutes, abs and arms.

Note: Fred and Liz and the other people in this DVD are wearing some type of special Exhale Spas socks. I do the workout with bare feet, as Fred and Liz have done in some of their previous DVDs.
