Defining Shape

Tracie Long
Year Released: 2009

Categories: Total Body Workouts

This is a workout that I wanted to like more than I do. Overall, I think it's a well constructed workout, although she does work the shoulders a bit more than what I find optimal. And, the workout does flow. But, I just prefer other workouts of hers more. Tracie has a place in my workout collection, but I tend to need only 2-3 of hers to get what I need from her style of workout. If you want a Tracie Long strength oriented workout using multiple sets of dumbbells, this workout may be for you.

Tracie is alone in this workout and the workout is divided into several sections with different themes. She does sets of moves where you often work the upper body and lower body at the same time with a series of moves that she groups together. The cueing is so-so, although she does mirror cue. I did like some of the combinations and the workout does seem to flow to me.

Instructor Comments:
She comes off as a no-nonsense professional who is there to help you work out and achieve your goals.
