Body by Bethenny DVD Review

About the DVD:

Unleash your inner skinnygirl with help from Bethenny Frankel, star of The Real Housewives of New York City, natural food chef, and New York Times best-selling author. Celebrity instructor Kristin McGee joins Frankel for a yoga and strength training program that stretches, tones, sculpts, and energizes. Matter-of-fact, down-to earth, and fun, this program is for everyone regardless of size, shape, or fitness level. Includes bonus cooking segment and sample recipes. Requires light hand weights and mat. Approx. 55 min. on 1 DVD.

My Review:

Over the past few months, I have had the pleasure of getting to know certified personal trainer, Kristin McGee by writing a series of reviews for Simply Stacie readers that featured her fantastic series of workout DVD routines. I have been very impressed with her approach, inviting style and solid workout routines that are perfect for all fitness levels.

For fans of Bethenny Frankel, you are not going to want to miss this workout DVD, Body by Bethenny. In this workout DVD, Kristin and Bethenny work out together in a 40 minute yoga program that targets abs, thighs, glutes and arms. I like that it also features flexibility and balance which is a particular challenge for me and I enjoy making progress each time I work out to this DVD. As a busy mom, I also love that it has a 10 minute strength training segment and a 5 minute “Booty Blast” that makes it easy to fit in an intense yet quick workout when time is limited. I use light (3-5 lb) hand weights and a yoga mat….that is all the equipment you need! This program really works for me because it is very down to earth and it is an effective overall workout that would be great for anyone who wants to get into shape or vary your current routine. Are you ready to sculpt your body and “unleash your Skinnygirl?”
