Full Backcover Description
No bulky muscles here! Instead get a long, lean and lifted silhouette with Skinny Sculpt, my most effective, body transforming workout ever. The slender success comes from three key ingredients: 1) Generous ranges of motion that elongate body lines by engaging large muscle groups, 2) Focused, muscle-squeezing exercises that sculpt & tone in all the right places, and 3) Absolute fluidity that brings elegance to the forefront. Coveted results are yours for the taking.
The seamless routine consists of a 30 minute dance-inspired sequence using light handheld weights (recommended 2-4 lbs each), followed by 15 minutes of tush tightening and belly flattening matwork. Before you sip a skinny latte and wear your skinny jeans, do this skinny workout! (Remember: BULK is a four-letter word.)

Certified instructor description:
A fluid blend of stretching and strengthening exercises designed to give you toned muscles, sleek lines and everyday flexibility. You'll start with gently flowing sequences of dancer-inspired movements. Each series smoothly transitions through multiple muscles and techniques (e.g. Ellen begins with a plié squat, shifts into a warrior lunge and then adds a bicep curl). The moves are almost cardio — fast-paced with a full range of motion. The ending floorwork segment is exceptionally comprehensive and varied. It works your abs, back and lower body in every possible angle, plane and position. Requires 2 to 4 lb. dumbbells. Excellent cuing and detailed instruction on a bright, airy set. ©2010.
