  • I LOVED this video. Just what the DR. ordered after a two week lazy vacation and a very stressful first day back at work. It even adjusted my neck - twice!
    Excellent. Must make it a regular. - 7/27/2014 12:02:08 PM
  • I have this entire workout (Xtend Barre Lean & Chiseled) on DVD - it's AMAZING. There's an upper body segment as well as a legs segment and abs segment - and I do the whole thing from front to back for a really good, hour-long workout.

    You can always modify the moves if they're too difficult. Your best is always good enough. :) - 7/14/2014 2:44:34 PM
  • Geez Louize :-) This is not a beginner work out.....I was screeching like a banchee at times....I would LUUUUUVVVEEE to look like those girls....gosh they are so long, lean and gorgeous.....Yike ballet days are over I suspect...LOL still this workout once I can master it and do it without screaming, collapsing and complaining better give me a steel core....have a great day everyone... - 7/9/2014 11:25:02 AM
  • Interesting workout method. Definitely feeling it in my mid-section. I think extra padding is needed for some exercises e.g. the first. Some exercises have me looking at the screen incredulously, but at least it's giving me something to work towards. Worth the try. - 7/8/2014 6:29:46 AM
  • I have Firefox and it worked well.
    As a retired nurse with history of back/neck injuries, the twisting did not feel good so I had to do a lot of modifications. - 6/26/2014 10:34:48 AM
  • Plays fine on Chrome for IPad - 6/17/2014 8:11:27 PM
  • I couldn't get it to work on Safari or firefox - 5/29/2014 4:17:47 PM
  • Second times a charm. The Acacia videos are often a problem for me but not the straight SP videos. - 5/23/2014 11:33:35 AM
  • Doesn't play on Firefox either. - 5/23/2014 11:30:09 AM
  • So--if you are using Chrome--the video doesn't play. I switched to another browser and the video played.

  • Whoa! That kicked it up a notch. But I needed it as I avoid ab work normally, :) - 4/19/2014 11:52:46 AM
  • Spark People videos rarely work for me, I don't have a problem with any other videos. It is very frustrating! Why won't they play!? - 4/10/2014 7:07:26 PM
  • It's a good workout. - 4/6/2014 9:58:48 AM
  • Great alternate to crunches, boy did that kill my hip on the ground during those twist moves where you bring your feet in the air. Had to add some padding under my hip :p - 3/13/2014 4:45:38 PM
