It appears to be a mishmash of different bodyweight exercises and some assisted Pilates type exercises. Since it is sustained for an hour I would classify it as a light resistance bodyweight programme. There is nothing shown in the video which would meet the standard for a dedicated cardio workout.

Nothing really new or unique here just a different combination of standard bodyweight, barre and Pilates exercises.


It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

You can not build a six pack using twelve packs


Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

Sounds similar to power yoga. That's what I would log it as.

I've been doing a workout called "BarreAmped". We start off doing some arm work with light weights, into the thigh/seat bar work, planks/pushups, stretching, bridge work etc.

The class is an hour, and you do work up a sweat, but it's very 'gentle' (overall) and low impact. Not sure what to track it under.
