Tendu Toning is a hybrid workout that combines pilates, ballet, weights, resistance, and cardio for full body results. Unlike most workout methods that work only one body part at a time, Tendu Toning requires the use of the whole body to perform each exercise correctly. This creates long, lean muscles like a ballerinas body. Whether you're a ballet dancer wanting to get stronger and more conditioned or just someone who wants to get in shape and have a ballerina body, this 1-hour total body workout DVD is for you! Equipment Required: Light Weights, Resistance Band, Pilates Ball, Gliding Disc (or paper plate), Barre or Chair, Ankle Weights (optional)
