RIPPEDISM The Equalizer: Isometrics & Stretch
Jeff Hirsh and Stu Lopoten, 2016

Stu & Jeff both lead this 33 min yoga inspired isometrics routine. The guys alternate performing exercises, and training in their brick studio. You wont need any equipment for this routine. The workout structure is: 40 seconds isometric hold & 20 seconds rest.


Poses include: warrior, down dog hip opener, reverse plank, warrior 2,  low plank, pigeon chair pose, high plank, reverse warrior, side plank, V & C hold variations, triangle pose, angle pose variations, up-dog, camel, single arm plank, 1/2 moon, and concludes with childs pose. 


I rate this an yoga intermediate. I would best describe this as an isometric yoga hold routine with some light toning benefits. A great supplement to your other RIPPEDISM workouts. Great to stretch out and work your muscles in a new way.

Interview with Red Hot Dance Fitness' Christine Gallagher DeFilippis


I recently had the pleasure of reviewing Christine Gallagher DeFilippis' newest workout DVD's (links to reviews here). Christine is a fitness and dance expert and a choreographer. With over 20 years of teaching experience, she combined her passion and expertise in the fields of dance and fitness to create the Red Hot Dance Fitness™ & Red Hot Barre™ award winning programs. She is certified through AFAA & ACE in addition to holding over 20 specialized certifications as well as a certified Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Keep reading to learn more about Christine. She was nice enough to do an "interview" with me, her responses are below. 

Lindsey: I recently had the opportunity to review your 2 fitness DVDs, and really enjoyed them! Can you share with us your fitness bio?
Christine: Here is a link to her bio: https://about.me/christinegdeflippis 

Lindsey: Your DVDs were both fun & effective, which isn’t easy to achieve in the industry. Do you have plans for future DVDs (please say yes!)
Christine: I don’t have any plans to film any DVDs but I am working on re-launching my online site for dance and barre workouts.

Lindsey: Women these days have so much pressure to be the perfect mom, devoted wife, excel in their careers, be superfit and more. How do you find time to do it all. How do you fit it all in and what advice do you have for any of us that may struggle to accept ourselves when we may not feel that we are 100% at all of the above.
Christine: Planning and prioritizing are key. I used to try to multitask and get so many things done in one day. Now I spend 30 minutes every morning prioritizing what is important and devoting at least 2-4 hours a day of focuses energy getting my projects done. Focussing on one single task until completing has been key. Just like when I teach classes I’m 100% focused on teaching its the same thing when I am creating new choreography, trainings or programs. I break everything down into smaller tasks and make sure I get a few things done each day. I also spend time at the end of each week and each month to review what worked and what didn’t and plan for the next week/month.

Lindsey: Does your fitness routine focus mainly on dance & barre or do you also participate in other types of fitness? Can you share with us your typical routine?

Christine: I teach about 10 dance and barre classes each week. I get plenty of cardio but what I try to focus on during my workouts is strength training. I have recently committed to a daily yoga practice and not only has that helped me increase my strength and flexibility but also helped me develop a meditation practice. Some days my practice includes a vigorous vinyasa class and others a gentle yoga or yin yoga class.

Lindsey: My blog is “Fitness For the Rest of Us,” I feel that fitness is a journey for everyone that doesn’t end, you just get stronger as you go. Do you have any fitness mottos that you can share with my readers?
Christine: Fitness isn’t a look. Having struggled myself with eating disorders and having a negative body image I spent many years hating the way I looked. No matter how many classes I taught and how many participants loved my classes I allowed my negative body image to keep me from sharing my passion. I thought because I didn’t look a fitness instructor I shouldn’t teach. Even though physically I could teach. I always encourage students to work out because they love their bodies not because they hate them. Move your body, nourish your body and LOVE your body! That is my workout philosophy.

Got Stinky Gym Clothes? Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator is a MUST Have


I recently had the pleasure of reviewing Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator. When the package arrived, I thought I would be funny and offer the samples to my teenage nieces. Well jokes on me, they were excited. They have used it before and proclaimed that it was their favorite detergent. They said it really does remove odor and they love the smell. So I gave them the samples & went on my way to the store to buy some more for me....Turns out, they were right! It is PERFECT for my exercise clothes and really do remove odor from your clothes, even T-shirts, that tend to hold on to that sweaty smell. Well not with Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator. 



For all you gym junkies, DVD fanatics, and anyone with a summer sweat - give Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator a try with your normal laundry soap to up the freshness, leave a fresh smell, and remove funky odors. It is already triple digits here in the desert so this really is a must in my house. With funky teens (ha), an active young one, and my husband & I with our sweaty gym clothes, I am so glad I found this!

Use NEW Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator with your detergent to eliminate – not just mask – the TOUGHEST laundry odors in just one wash. NOW with 3x more freshening power!

Febreze In-Wash Odor Eliminator is a laundry aid that works in the washer with detergents to eliminate odors such as sweat, cooking oil, grease, motor oil, pet smells, garden dirt & grime, and even mildew from virtually any washable fabric. While detergents clean the soils Febreze Laundry Odor Eliminator cleans away odors that get trapped in fabrics. You really do need both. One for cleaning and one for odor removal.

Available on download or DVD. Pretty Fierce Weight Loss consists of 8 workouts that feature a combination of HIIT, Tabata, Shredding, Flexibility and large/small muscle split training.

Read all of my Moms into Fitness Reviews here.

Pretty Fierce Weight Loss:  Muscle Splits Upper Body
Lindsay Brin, 2013

I am reviewing the downloadable workouts which are split up into 3 separate downloads: 1) Warm-Up 4 min 2) Bi's & Tri's 12 min 3) Chest, Shoulders & Back 19 min. Lindsey works out in her brick gym with one backgrounder who offers some modifications. 
You will need dumbbells, gliding discs, and a chair for these routines. 

After the warm up, Bi & Tri exercises include fast alternating bi curls, tri pushbacks, preacher curls, kickbacks, isolation curls, kickback pumps, then you repeat the circuit. Chest, Shoulders & Back exercises include: renegade rows from your knees, knee pushups, W overhead push, kneeling cross pull, knee pushups with hands on gliders, W extensions, upper back fly, pec fly, hinging T, then you repeat, and conclude with childs pose. You should add your own stretches after the workout.


I rate these intermediate routines that you can modify up or down depending on your poundage. Lindsay encourages you to go at your own pace which makes it great for all fitness levels. The downloads being split up makes it great to mix and match & perfect for days you are short on time. I received this workout to review.
