Playlist Title: Ballerina Workout

Hip and Thigh Workout
Backstage Abs
Splits
Centre Splits

Coming from a background in dance, I absolutely love the more dance inspired workouts which is why I started my playlist with the Swan Queen Workout and Sleeping Beauty Lilac Fairy, I like doing cardio at the beginning of my workouts to warm up. My two focus areas are bum and abs, so I love both the Hip and Thigh Workout (it gives you a dancers bum!) and Backstage Abs, which are very targeted and commit a full fifteen minutes to each of these areas. I then finish with two split videos, because I love finishing my workout with a long stretch! I love my Custom Workout so much and use it five days a week, but I also love using the Personal Playlist option on the sixth day to do all my favourite videos and treat myself to a long stretch.

Name: Lisa Gimelli
City: Montclair, NJ
Playlist Title: Gimelli BELOW THE BELT

Videos:

I made this collection that includes two of the hardest videos of all time, bridge/ball and butt 2, to really challenge myself. I have been doing BB fairly religiously for over 3 years, and the fact that I can get through this playlist and live to tell about it just shows how strong I have become. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and the heart of my bottom :)

Name: Katelyn Hoobler
City: Philadelphia, PA
Playlist Title: Beautiful, Elegant, Graceful, Strong: Ballet Cardio

Videos:
Battement Cardio Series
Bikini Blast
Arabesque Blast
Waltz of the Flowers
Bridal Waist
Bridal Legs
Skyline Abs
Fondu Workout
Curtsy Cardio
Cardio Core
Swan Arms; Cardio
Sugarplum Pique Passe
Ballet Sculpt

I love these cardio workouts for both their ballet principles as well as the toning that is naturally included in the workouts. Many of the workouts, in addition to being a low-impact but fast-paced cardio session, target the abs for me as I improve my balance during the moves and sculpt a strong, lean center. These ballet cardio workouts make me feel strong and get my heart pumping. As my balance improves, my center feels stronger and I feel more graceful and elegant!
