Fit in 5: Ultimate Body Blitz is Acadia's latest workout DVD, to be released on March 23, 2010. This workout DVD contains five 20-minute workouts that offer a mix of disciplines to maximize results in minimum time. Five top instructors offer a variety of styles to banish boredom. Fit in 5 features a compilation of five workouts from some of Acacia's best-selling workout videos.

The five include a strength workout that blends cardio and strength training to boost your metabolism and burn fat. Violet Zaki leads this workout that originally came from the Weight Loss Cardio Sculpt DVD. It requires the use of light hand weights.

Hemalayaa, a certified yoga instructor, leads the yoga workout on this DVD that is meant to tone, stretch, and strengthen. It originally appeared on Yoga For Everyone. This is a slow-paced yoga workout that aims to stretch and strengthen your muscles rather than leave your heart pumping.

Also included is a Pilates workout with Kristin McGee that combines traditional moves with cardio blasts made to get your heart pumping! The workout originally appeared on Weight Loss Pilates. I found this to be a good all-around workout that was easy to keep up with.

Desi Bartlett leads the dance workout that teaches you the merengue, salsa step and rumba to tone up the tummy and the entire body. I had a tough time following this one but that is probably because of my less than stellar coordination. The dances were fun and upbeat. This workout originally appeared on Dance and Be Fit: Latin Groove.

Petra Kolber, IDEA fitness instructor of the year, leads the cardio workout that burns calories and strengthens the heart. It's an easy to follow workout that beginners should have no problem with. It's originally from the Cardio for Beginners DVD.

There is a total of 108 minutes worth of routines on this DVD. Each workout takes 20 minutes to complete and can be done by itself or in combination with another workout. It's designed to be done over a period of five days, hence the title Fit in 5. You won't be bored by doing the same old routine because each day is different with a different instructor and a different discipline. I recommend this DVD for both beginners and the more experienced exerciser.
