This review is from: NYC Ballet Workout: Fifty Stretches And Exercises Anyone Can Do For A Strong, Graceful, And Sculpted Body (Paperback)
For years, I have tried countless workouts that promise to help you achieve the body that you want, but every time I soon get despondent and give up, because they just do not deliver what they promise.
A couple of years ago I started doing yoga, which has given me great flexibility and suppleness, but still I was after something that would really TONE, and give me long sculpted muscles without bulk. So when I came across the New York City Ballet Workout I thought I would give it a try.
I have to say I am just so impressed with this book!! Firstly, the design and photographs are both beautiful and inspiring, and the layout and instructions make it so easy to use! But that is all second to the effects that it has on your body!!
I started to notice a change within the first two days of doing the workout particularly in my legs, and after only a week my legs appeared slimmer, more toned and leaner, I was getting muscle definition WITHOUT bulk, which is something that has always been a problem for me. I could definitely notice a difference in my stomach also (flatter and more toned) and my waistline (more sculpted and curved)! and this is without any changes to my diet whatsoever.
The amazing thing about this workout is that it is easy to understand exactly how to perform the exercises, it doesn't take ages to do, and you can really feel it working muscles that you had no idea were there! It feels really natural! Almost like this is the way that your body is SUPPOSED to be, and you are simply reawakening what is already there, naturally and gracefully.
I have become rather sceptical about 'miracle exercises' that promise a fantastic body but the New York City Ballet really seems to know its stuff. Now I understand how dancers, ice skaters and the like manage to obtain their beautiful, slender and yet such STRONG bodies! I have so much more energy now than I did, I feel lighter and stronger and am developing muscles that are longer and more toned than they have been since I was a child.
A real 5 Star book!
