Three fast and remarkably effective total body toning sequences that will significantly increase your core stability, balance and overall strength. Do them when your time is limited, or as a supplement to the Pilates mat workout if you want to supercharge the already challenging Pilates mat workouts you'll find on Jennifer's Pilates DVDs.
Magic Circle - Invented by Joseph Pilates in the 1930's, this amazing metal ring sculpts and tones the upper and lower body in a surprisingly gentle yet effective way. You work to your capacity as you tone and strengthen the muscles of your entire body and improve your posture while creating unmatched length and core strength. One of the most convenient ways to increase your overall isometric strength and control, the magic circle is the perfect tool for women for pre and post-natal conditioning and for men as an exceptional cross-training supplement. It travels easily and once you learn this workout, you can perform it anywhere-from your own living room to your hotel room!
The Sculpting Series - Using light 3-5 lb. hand weights, tone and sculpt the entire body while improving your posture and strengthening your core. Grow taller as you learn to engage your core and the muscles of the legs to create a strong base so that you can target your arms, shoulders and muscles of the upper back more safely and effectively. Rather than simply isolating specific muscles, you will learn to use your body as an integrated whole.
PhysioBall - Hone your balance and coordination skills and increase your core muscle strength and stability. Learn how to literally balance your body, increasing strength in your weaker muscles so that your dominant, over-worked muscles get a chance to stretch and recharge. The physioball is the perfect tool if you suffer from chronic back pain because it offers a soft, yet supportive and welcoming surface. And if you simply want a new way to strengthen your core and stretch your spine and the muscles of your upper back and neck, this is the toy you've been looking for! Just wait until you're introduced to the creative exercises and the variety of ways you can strengthen and tone your entire body, stimulate your lymphatic system, get your blood flowing and put a bounce in your step!
