Long and lean with proud posture...dancers have that elegant, lean physique that looks amazing both in clothes and out of them. Using an innovative and portable barre, exercise maven Michelle Austin developed Fluidity based on the secret of the ballet dancer's workout: by standing and using your own weight, the muscles that are weakest become stronger while the dominant muscles "back off", resulting in integrated and proportionate muscle-tone throughout your entire body. A heavy focus on developing the muscles along the back of the body helps develop that fabulous posture your mother was after when she nagged you constantly as a kid "stand up straight!"
In only two half-hour workouts a week, you'll be well on your way to looking your best in all your new fall clothes (not to mention fulfilling any lingering ballerina fantasies). Available at Fluidity.com.
