Husband and wife team, Fred DeVito and Elisabeth Halfpapp, creators of Core Fusion (and founding team members of Exhale mind/body spa) have taken their Core Fusion class and made bite-sized DVDs focused on specific parts of the body. Core Fusion combines Pilates, Lotte Berk Method, yoga, and core conditioning into a fun, upbeat workout that will tire your muscles. But, don’t let this title fool you, it may say ‘thighs and glutes’ but you’ll also work your lower legs, lower back and abs as you strengthen and tone your body. My thighs were shaking (in a good way as DeVito points out) after just one of the five 10-minute workouts featured on the tape. And the only equipment I needed was a chair. Who needs the gym? I never liked that thigh machine anyway!
