TENDU TONING


New DVD from Ballerina & Fitness Pro Rachel Speck

 
According to the press release:

Professional Ballerina turned fitness professional, Rachel Speck, has combined her two loves and created “Tendu Toning” a revolutionary, fusion workout that brings together the toning of ballet with the strength of body building.  Rachel Speck, owner of Speck Fitness, created “Tendu Toning” as a way for her, and other dancers, to stay strong, and in tiptop ballet shape, and to help anyone achieve a ballet dancer’s body without spending years training. 
 
The “Tendu Toning” DVD (60 minutes, $25.00, www.speckfitness.com) is a total body workout that fuses traditional ballet techniques and positions and combines them with weights, resistance, and increased repetitions to maximize results in a short amount of time. Tendu, means to stretch or extend the leg, and in Speck’s program, when Tendu meets with toning a heart pumping, calorie burning workout is borne.

 
Arabesque grande-battements and second position plie’ glides are just some of the fun ballet fitness moves viewers will perform with “Tendu Toning.”  A simple ballet step called an attitude, when combined with weights and repetitions, is one form of how the “Tendu Toning” method works to gain long, lean muscles while releasing the ‘inner ballerina.’  Rachel guides viewers through a total body workout with help from Daniella, who does the advanced portion, while Ally demonstrates modifications for beginners.
 
The DVD is divided into sections, or various series, that include a warm-up of all muscles and body parts as Rachel stresses the importance of proper breathing while raising the heart rate. A barre or chair are required for the workout, along with a small ball and resistance band. Ankle weights and small hand weights are optional.
 
First up, after the warm up is the Squat series that works the legs, glutes and hips. Then, the Attitude series works the glutes, hamstrings and back. The 2nd Position series requires a small glide disc. A paper plate or power towel can be substituted depending on surface. The 2nd Position section incorporates squats, leg stretches and arms. The Band Kick Back series uses the resistance band to work the legs and back, while the Lunge series continues with the glide, and incorporates hand and ankle weights on the barre. The program continues with floor work for Arms and Abs, and ends with stretches and cool down.
