Inspiration

Kelly Coffey Meyer http://www.coffeyfit.com/catalog/

Kelly is absolutely my number one go to for class material. Most of her videos incorporate integrated exercises, and she is easy to follow. A lot of material I’ll be using in my videos can be credited to her.

Elizabeth Halfpapp and Fred DeVito http://www.exhalespa.com/mind-body-classes/core-fusionr/

Core fusion incorporates principles of Pilates, yoga, and bar method for a routine that will create lean, long muscles. I own every video created by Elizabeth and Fred, and their 10-minute segments make it easy to put different pieces together. I highly recommend purchasing their DVD’s online. You can find them at amazon.com. Feel free to ask me questions about specific DVD’s of theirs.

Mindy Mylrea http://www.mindymylrea.com/

Mindy is the original developer of gliders: the ultimate torture tools. She has fabulous challenging workouts that are totally innovative. She is hands down the most original instructor I’ve ever come across. I’m always excited to find clips from her professional DVD’s.

Patrick Goudeau http://www.patrickgfitness.com/

Patrick is a more recent discovery. His exercises are challenging, but I’m less familiar with his material. He does a lot of floor to standing work, so his stuff won’t be as good if you have any kind of knee issues. Otherwise, he’s very tough and also creative.

www.Youtube.com

You’re probably wondering, “you tube…what??” But you tube is where I started. It’s how I discovered Kelly and Patrick, and also where I’ve found unlimited sources of other material. There haven’t been any specific instructors that I’ve found as consistent and reliable as these two, but there are still some gems hidden in there. Just type in what you’re looking for- cardio, weight training, abs- whatever, and see what pops up! This is typically better for instructors, because the You Tube videos are not meant to be full workouts for home viewers; rather, they provide snapshots of exercises, and it’s up to you to make them happen.

  1. I seriously love your site.. Pleasant colors & theme.
    Did you develop this site yourself? Please reply
    back as I’m trying to create my own personal blog and would like to learn where you got this from or exactly what the
    theme is named. Thank you!

    • Thanks, Elisabeth!
      The theme is “Ocean Mist.” I developed my site through wordpress.com; it’s very user friendly and pretty self explanatory as to where things are. There’s a bit of a learning curve, but it didn’t take too long. Otherwise I do all my videos through YouTube since it was expensive and took up space to upload them directly to the blog. Let me know if you have other questions!

  2. I just stumbled upon your website and am sooooooo in love with it. I am a mother of four-ages 5, 3.5, 2 and 2 months so time is of the essence!!! I love all the 10 minute workouts! I could easily do 3 different ones throughout the day and get an awesome workout! I am very excited to visit again….. And often!
