The Butt Bible, 10 Pound Slimdown Extreme, and Yoga Bootcamp are now all available from Exercise TV — either for online download, DVD purchase or TV on demand, so there’s no excuse for not working out.
The Butt Bible: Pauline Nordin, a trainer on the Swedish version of The Biggest Loser, leads a fun (yes!), comprehensive workout that targets your backside while also working out the rest of you. It’s a three-level workout, with 20-40 minute workouts for upper and lower body. She’s motivating and kinda goofy-funny (bonus activity: count the number of times she says “butt” in the workouts). You can check out a video clip at left or find out more at thebuttbible.com.
10 Pound Slimdown Xtreme: Chris Freytag leads this exremely comprehensive workout series. It’s a four-week training system broken into total body, upper body, core, and lower body workouts. The workouts are tough but easy to follow, and Freytag is an absolute pro at cueing and technique. If you want the “hard copy” the three-DVD set is sold with the original 10 Pound Slimdown videos as a bonus — all for $55.99. Also included are a Clean Eating Guide, a Workout Plan & Tracker, a workout music mix from Power Music, a Getting Started Guide and a tape measure. You can check out a clip at left or find out more at 10poundslimdown.com.
Yoga Bootcamp: Power yoga instructor Ashley Turner and Ted McDonald, yoga fitness instructor and former, lead this series of four 40-minute workouts that take yoga to a more intense level, focusing on improving flexibility and strength. Turner leads Core Strength and Twisting Detox while McDonald takes exercisers through Power Yoga for Arms & Abs and Dynamic Flow for Legs & Butt. Don’t worry if you’re not in pretzel mode just yet. There are modifications for less experienced yogis. The two DVD set is $19.99. You can check out a clip at left or find out more at Exercisetv.tv/yogabootcamp.
Cara Castronuova among new trainers at Exercise TV
Cara Castronuova from season 11 of The Biggest Loser, Brazilian trainer Fernanda Rocha (Tamra’s pal on The Real Housewives of Orange County), Agostina Laneri from Bravo TV’s Work Out, and celebrity dance fitness instructor Benjamin Allen will be featured in upcoming ExerciseTV workouts.
As you’d expect, Castrouova will be featured in a boxing workout, while Rocha will host Brazil Fit Workout. Laneri is planning a bootcamp-style workout, and Allen’s workout will probably be dance-fitness oriented with a kickin’ soundtrack.
Production will begin with all four trainers shortly and will hit the network in early 2012.
