About the Actor
Ellen Barrett, M.A. is "the country's top fitness instructor" says SELF magazine because she personifies 21st century fitness, where the mind, body and spirit converge for more intelligent, efficient workouts. As a best-selling DVD creator and book author, she's a go-to-expert specifically regarding women and weight loss, Pilates, Fusion fitness, pre- and post-natal exercise and inspired wellness. Sure exercise tones your tush but when it's done right it also makes the spirit soar! That's why Ellen began teaching group exercise while in college and never stopped, teaching all over the globe for Club Med in the Carribean, Crunch Gym in Los Angeles and NYC, Corporate America, the Kripalu Center and eventually at her very own studio in Connecticut. Weight Watcher's hired Ellen as their fitness walking spokeswoman. Lifetime TV selected Ellen as their resident Fit Pro. Family Circle Magazine elected Ellen to their advisory board. FIT TV cast Ellen as lead instructor on All Star Workouts. Her most recent launches have been ELLEN BARRETT LIVE DVD series, Prevention magazine's FLAT BELLY WORKOUT DVD's, and her wellness site Sneak In Some Skinny. Ellen currently resides in Connecticut with her husband and son. She travels extensively for workshops, retreats and media events.

Total Fitness DVDs sent me Ellen Barrett Live : Sleek Sculpt Express to review. It's always a pleasure to work with Total Fitness DVDs. They have a wonderful selection of workout videos. Total Fitness DVDs also have a nice customer service team that is super helpful. If you are in the market for workout DVDs you should check them out. I love to browse the new releases and see what they have that I want to get next.
I love Ellen Barrett and I am often short on time. Most of the Ellen Barrett DVDs that I have are almost an hour long. I rarely have that much time to workout in the morning. I am happy that she finally compromised and made a shorter workout. I started this workout with 5 pound dumbbells and by the second half I was using 2 pound dumbbells.
This workout is fun and challenging. I was sore at the end of the workout. I felt muscles in my arms and core that I haven't felt in quite sometime. Ellen takes you through a series of moves and then repeats the whole series. Before you know it the workout is over and you are ready to take on the day. I still love Ellen and with this DVD I love her even more. I highly recommend this DVD.
