You’ve heard me rave about Ariane Hundt and her Slim & Strong program and Brooklyn Bridge Bootcamp. Now you can do it at home.
I’ve been using the Brooklyn Bridge Bootcamp workout DVD for those days I’m lazy and can’t make it four blocks to the gym.
Ariane takes you through a butt kicking workout on the Brooklyn Bridge. The split screen shows on one side what you would normally be doing if you were at one of her outdoor classes and the other shows alternate moves for you at home. It’s a tough and fast paced workout but I always feel wiped yet amazing like I just had a personal training session. My legs, butt, arms and core are sore that day and the next…in a good way. The work out is fast paced and your heart rate will stay up the entire time.
No fancy equipment is necessary. The DVD comes with two Versa-loops, or as I like to call them, rubber bands of death. The rest is all your body. Lots of lunges, sumo squats, lifts, holds, and push-ups. I’m usually collect a pool of sweat in my living room floor.
It’s not your typical high production video shoot with pastel colored lights and muzak. But that’s what is refreshing about it – it’s real! It’s not overly produced. The only “negative” is that there is
some jumping, so if you live in an apartment like most New Yorkers do I suggest doing your jumping jacks, sumo squats, and knee lifts on a yoga mat or rug so your neighbors don’t hate you.
