These workouts are led by Fred DeVito & Elisabeth Halfpapp & are of the barre/yoga genre. This DVD is comprised of segments from 4 previously released Core Fusion DVDs--Lean & Toned, Bootcamp, Energy Flow Yoga, & Cardio-Pure Intensity. This program is set up as a 5 week program, with six 20 minute workouts per week. Each 20 minute workout is comprised of two 10 minute segments. There are 18 segments in total, breaking down as follows: 4 segments from Lean & Toned--upper body tone & stretch, thighs tone & stretch, flat/round back tone & stretch, & gluteal tone & stretch; 4 segments from Bootcamp--cardio flex, cardio sun salutations, jump backs part 1, & jump backs part 2; 5 segments from Energy Flow Yoga--energy flow, sun salutations part 1, sun salutations part 2, chi gong & hip opener stretches, & core & gluteal; & 5 segments from Cardio-Pure Intensity--energy moves, cardio flow, power flow, power sweat, & cardio curl.
I followed the program completely, doing the 20 minute Core Fusion workouts six days per week for five weeks. In addition, I kept up with my cardio doing elliptical usually 60 minutes 5 days per week. I did only a couple other workouts during my rotation, & I was doing all the cardio for months before. Therefore, my results were pretty much from just adding in the Core Fusion. As far as my results go, my midsection feels much more pulled in & looks more toned. My butt has lifted some. My thighs are slimmer. I can even do a few (up to 4 or 5) full pushups, & I could never do a full pushup before--I attribute this to all the planks & down dogs! I even lost a couple pounds, without really changing my diet. I was quite out of shape in terms of strength prior to this, as I had mainly been focused on cardio, doing only a couple yoga/pilates workouts per week. I am very pleased with my results.
