Making time to work out can be a difficult task, not everyone has the time to stop everything they are doing to work out! But who doesn’t have 10 minutes? The new workout DVD from Exhale: Core Fusion Power Sculpt gives you 10 minutes full of hard work. If you have never heard of Core Fusion it is a combination of yoga, Pilates, strength training and Core Fusion’s own brand of movement. Core Fusion was created and is lead by the husband and wife team, Fred DeVito and Elizabeth Halfpapp.
The workout consists of five10-minute workouts that can be done individually or you can run the DVD for the full 50 minutes for the full burn, but I am new to yoga and Pilates so I started easy with just one 10-minute workout a day. The movements may not look hard, but you will feel the stretch and later on you will burn the next day.
The workout is broken up into 5 segments: “Power Fusion,” “Strength Flow,” “Power Flow,” “Strength & Balance” and “Abs & Glutes,” plus a short bonus stretch portion. In “Power Fusion” your coordination and flexibility are tested. I could feel my body fighting to stay balanced. The moves are slight, but you do feel the burn. It looks easier than it is. If you are new to yoga look up the proper form for plank, warrior 1, warrior 2, upward dog and downward dog.
When you move on to “Strength Flow” the workout goes at a faster pace. The movements are more fluid than in “Power Fusion” and you will add more weights and pushups, which I can barely do. Be ready, it gets tougher and you should be aware of your breath. All the exercises will be easier to follow after watching the DVD a few times.
