Dance Your Way to Your Bikini Body: Hard As Heck, But Your Arse Will Thank You.

So you regulars who follow me on Facebook know that I’ve spent that last three days at the Natural Products Expo in Anaheim, California. It’s a huge convention bringing in over 60,000 people who buy, sell and report about healthy foods, clean beauty products, organic booze and nutritional supplements. For a health nut like me, it’s like a three-day orgasm. I also got to stay at the Disneyland Hotel, which has been a dream of mine since I was a kid. Ole’ Walt did not disappoint–besides the overpriced and crappy tasting amusement park food they passed off as room service, the place was absolutely magical.


But it’s March, and we’re just months away from bikini season, and quite frankly, I’m getting a bit flabby in the parts that will be showing by summer. I don’t like to skip my exercises when I’m traveling so I’ve been taking a three-series exercise DVD with me that has 1) kicked my ass 2)been so intense I can not finish the workout. Both are really good things, because in the last two weeks those flabby spots have firmed right up. Muscle fatigue is a really, really good thing. Feel and relish the burn, ladies…

Leah Sarago has released three exercise videos called “Ballet Body,” and focus on lower body, core, and upper body. The series is amazingly vigorous, with no breaks in between. But you WILL get results in the form of long, lean, and feminine ballerina-like muscle tone–especially in your legs and hind quarters.


Each of the DVD’s last for about 45 minutes and honestly I can only do 15 minutes at a time because of all the muscle fatigue I’m having. However, this may be due in part to the low amount of sugars and carbohydrates I consume, which my lazy body kicks and screams about converting the fat to energy, thus the early fatigue. It might not be the same for you if you’re not cutting your carbs like me, but it’s still gonna work you. And because Leah works you soooo hard, you see results really fast. I saw mine in less than two weeks.

The Ballet Body series is like the Barre Method on steroids. But what I like most about these videos is that while they are separated by three sets of muscle groups, they really touch on all muscle groups in each video, just in a different way. I’m planning on using this video series exclusively through the summer because I’m DETERMINED to get through an entire session without crying “MOMMY!” and am convince Leah’s going to give me the hottest 40-year-old body I could ever imagine.
