Ok people it is sandal season and we all need to take care of our feet. Heel Rescue is aA thick, luxurious, yet non-greasy formula for Dry, Scaly, Cracked Foot Relief. Perfect for men and women - give it a try and you will love the way it leaves your feet & heels super smooth and will even soften calloused feet! Impressive! Best yet for me - its non-greasy. I cant stand greasy lotions, so I am super excited that Heel Rescue is thick & creamy without being greasy. 

This intensive treatment is specifically designed to penetrate, moisturize, and repair even the toughest cracked and calloused feet. Unlike other foot creams, PROFOOT's formula is non-greasy and quickly leaves feet feeling soft, silky-smooth, and revitalized. Key Features I LOVE: Not too greasy, Not too tacky, Not too perfumey!

You can now easily fade away ugly discoloration with this soothing botanical-rich formula with Arnica Montana, MSM, and Aloe.  Easy-foam applicator.  No touch.  No mess.  Just squeeze and apply! I bruise my shins & ankles more than I should -often when working out and hate the ugly bruises. Its hot here about year round, and who wants to go out in shorts, a skirt, or a bathing suit with a big old bruise on your leg. Well no longer do you have to! Just apply Bruise Remedy Gel asap when you get a bruise & watch it fade away quickly. 
The main ingredient, Arnica Montana has been used for centuries as a natural therapy, and is produced from a bright yellow flower grown in central Europe and Siberia.  Today, Arnica is trusted by professional athletes and prominent doctors the world over to relieve and soothe bruising.

barre3 Ballet Boot Camp Review


Candace Ofcacek , 2014

Candace leads this 30 min barre style workout. You will need a mat, light weights, a small ball, and a chair for this workout. Sadie works out with 2 background exercisers, one showing modifications. The DVD also includes a 10 min bonus core workout.

After a quick warmup, exercises include crescent post with tri kickbacks, horse pose & up & over arms, demi pliet & angled out bi work, crescent lunge & pull downs, pulsing squats with the ball between your knees with your heels raised, attitude rear leg raises, standing table work, standing balance leg series, seated core work using the ball, weighted oblique twists, leg drops, and a seated stretch. 

Bonus Core: side leg raises & sweeps, side bend & forward fold, crunches with frog leg pulls, leg drops, seated ball push outs, stretches, and seated forward fold with the ball under your lower back. 

I rate this an intermediate strength routine. The flowing arm gets your heart rate up and the high rep work really targets the muscles. Candace is a great instructor and this is a unique routine. I received this dvd to review.

Dressed Up Drills DVD Review

Dressed Up Drills
Kristen Dowell, 2014

This DVD contains 83 minutes of cardio & bodyweight work and contains a ton of premixes so you can do exactly the workout for you on any given day. Kristen works out with 2 background exercisers in a gym class set. They all work out at a different intensity so you can get just the right workout you need. DVD contains a warmup & cooldown.

Cardio Exercises: knee pull, repeater knee, jog, side leap, mogul hops, shuffle floor touches, side step knee hops, glute raises, power jacks, diagonal hops, power knee punches, kick & punch, soccer drills, 1/4 turn squat hops, side scissor jacks &lunges, skater, and squat hops.

Bodyweight Exercises: balance stick to side leg raise, single leg walk out planks, chair roll backs & side leg extensions, burpee, heel click plank jacks, unge & kick, crunch to side lying leg extensions, crouching hop to walk out planks, low back ankle grabs, double crunch leg extensions, plank knee pull & kick. This is a unique & functional bodyweight workout.

I rate this a high intermediate routine that is easy to follow along to. Each athletic style drill builds up in intensity and is combined to a "dressed up drill." Easy to follow combos, so many premixes, and no wasted time, make this a must-have DVD in anyones library. I know I will get a ton of use out of this dvd, use it for cardio only, bodyweight only, or any combo thereof. Kristen provides lots of motivation and form pointers.  I received this dvd to review.

Fitness Favorites presents digitally remastered FIRM favorites, some for the first time EVER on dvd!  Stay tuned for detailed reviews of more awesome Fitness Favorite dvds and below is my review of The FIRM: Bust and Butt, originally released on VHS in 1998. Be sure to check the new 2014 Firm workout calendar on Fitness Favorites now.

The FIRM: Bust and Butt
Tamela Hastie, Carissa Foster, Dale Brahbam, 2014

This is a 43 minute parts video that is strength focused but also includes cardio. The DVD is fully chaptered. You will need a small ball, weights, and a step.

After a fun ball warmup & stretch, exercises include pushups on the box, lunges to the box, lying low back work, a crunch series, hover squats, dips off the box, heavy bi curls, upright row, tricep dips, rows, French press, pliet series adding overhead press & row, ball oblique crunches, bridge with the ball in your knees, bi series, bunny lunges with static bi curls, dip series, donkey kicks, and a final stretch.

I rate this a solid to high intermediate routine that you can easily vary depending on your poundage. I love the isolation exercises featured in this workout so you can really focus on specific muscle groups and get the right poundage for each exercise. As always, the FIRM master instructors are wonderful and the dvd flows together well. Very well rounded and a good variety of exercises. I received this dvd to review.

Mizuno Wave Paradox: Supportive Running Shoe Meets High Fashion!


I am a running/ exercise shoe junkie. I have tried pretty much every brand, well at least I thought I had. Enter the Mizuno Wave Paradox. I have always worn Mizuno cleats for softball (going way back to high school even!) but until recently, was not aware that Mizuno made running shoes! It gets better, they are created for runners that overpronate, are lightweight, are SUPER CUTE, and are SO supportive. I am in love with these and am SO excited to have discovered Mizuno - my fav cleat brand is now my fav running shoe. 

Mizuno has combined everything they learned about control shoes with their famous lightweight construction methods to create a shoe for excessive overpronation control that is very light and will not weigh you down. A Smoothride engineered midsole with Fan Wave Technology provides a stable ride from landing to toe-off. I am gearing up for the upcoming 5K season here and these have been a Godsend. The cushion and support that these provide really help with my stiff knee & ankle and of course are amazing for overpronation. The sole is supportive & cushioned from heel to toe. Unlike some of the other brands that thin out so much in the toe. I want all the support & cushion I can get for these joints!


Now you may be thinking “Support shoe”…and think of those old nursing shoes that are super clunky (not to mention super ugly) and far from modern and fresh.  I do not want or need bulk or clunk in my running support shoes. In today’s modern era of technology, there’s no reason ANY running shoe should not look good.  At least, that’s how Mizuno saw it when they set out to create the Wave Paradox – the lightest, sleekest support shoe on the market. LOVE LOVE LOVE the color scheme and design pattern on these. Seriously hot pink & neon green with the black & white is beyond cute & super unique. I get compliments on these every time I wear them. Check out the bottom of the sole- even that is cute
The tendency of running shoe brands is to slap on extra material to the outsole, adding a ton of extra weight, and then calling it a support shoe, my weak ankle cant handle all this extra weight when trekking along my race route. What I love is that Mizuno took a different route, focusing on the shoe’s sidewall and engineering an extremely lightweight support “chassis,” at only 8.6 ounces in the women’s shoe, which gives you all the stability without the added weight that other supportive running shoes have.

Overpronators (runners whose feet roll to far inward) are ecstatic to now sport an unexpected support shoe option. The Wave Paradox has a totally unique look, inspired by the repetitive pattern of Japanese umbrellas. The shoe’s super cute pattern has flowing lines that appear to be curved but are actually straight, further adding to the shoe’s paradoxical beauty. I love love love the look. These are cute enough to wear with jeans on a casual day but of course are made to train. Gear up for your next road race, treadmill sweatfest and all of your exercise options.
