Love my Sparkpeople fitness DVD....Total Body Sculpting with Coach Nicole!!!

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Hello Sparkers...

What better way to spend a snowy, cold day at home by breaking a sweat with a Sparkpeople fitness DVD. I especially like Total Body Sculpting with Coach Nicole. Get your workout clothes on, find your dumb bells, and have that bottle of water handy, because Coach Nicole is going to warm you up and work you out!! It's an overall total body workout that incorporates strength training and cardio while providing a lot of fun at the same time. It's clear, precise and easy to follow. Best of all... you always have the option to modify your workout to challenge yourself and meet your particular fitness needs. It's up to you and your own personal trainer... Coach Nicole.

There are several options in choosing your workout. The first one is choosing a Coach Nicole custom workout. Basically this takes you through a daily and weekly fitness program from Beginner to Advanced. This is great for someone who is new to a fitness program and perhaps would benefit from a structured program. It advances you gradually and challenges you as your fitness level improves. Hey...what better than to let someone else use their expertise to plan your workout and maximize your results.

The other option is to choose your own workout from a 69 minute total body workout divided into 5 different sections consisting of: (1)Warm-up (2)Barre Body Blast (3) Body Weight Burn (4) Sizzle-Sculpt Circuit and (5) Cool down.

After a gradual warm up, the Barre Body Blast incorporates Yoga, Pilates, and Ballet Barre. I find this section very interesting and quite challenging. I do a lot of Pliet squats at the gym but this puts a whole new spin on them. I had no idea there were so many different ways to do this type of squat and believe this will optimize my results. This whole section gradually increases intensity by providing intervals that include strength training and short cardio bursts.

The Body Weight Burn section essentially uses cardio and strength training to combine for the ultimate total body workout produced by using your body weight and a set of dumb bells. It works to get your heart rate up, keep it up, and burn calories.

Lastly the Sizzle Sculpt Circuit is a great option to tone your body at home. I am huge into strength training but am many times strapped for time. I like this because I don't have to spend endless hours at the gym lifting weights to get the desired results. I've lost 118 lbs and needless to say...I've got a lot of toning to do. This is the perfect DVD for those who want to take their body sculpting to the next level..I'm ready. How about you??

Of course last but not least the Cool Down. Coach Nicole always warms you up and cools you down in a safe and professional manner. I really appreciate this. Throughout the DVD, you are always given the option to modify the workout so that so that it is the safest possible for you and your fitness level.

Now I'm going to share a huge benefit that I feel I have received from this particular fitness video. As an older adult (57 years young) I feel that perhaps I should be paying more attention to my balance. Yes..BALANCE. I found this DVD really challenged and improved my balance, particularly the Ballet Barre section. After doing this video consistently I can see a definite improvement in my flexibility and balance. I think this is very beneficial to improve my health, keep me safe, and protect me from falls as I become older!

So...are you ready to take a chance friends? If you want to burn calories, tone up, and have fun..this video is for you. I don't think it will disappoint. It is currently available at Amazon and but hurry... if you order before February 28 at you will receive 250 Sparkpoints.

Peace out friends...get your fitness on and take care!!

    Great review of the DVD Carol! It sounds really good. I won and received the Cardio Blast DVD and did some of that on our snow day. It too was structured for all levels.

Glad you gave a shout ou to balance activities. Losing it is what makes old people old--and most of us would like to postpone that as long as possible emoticon

    Excellent review! I am leery about any squats or lunges, bad hips, but always find a way to modify things.
Perfect snowy day workout. Thanks!

    Dear Carol,

This is really an interesting review. I'm not sure my knees are quite ready but am very much planning to look into it. Thanks for a thorough review. I feel more motivated just reading this!! Have a great day/weekend. I wish we had as much snow as y'all. As a Texan by birth, I always believe more snow is better (silly, I know).

All the best!
