"28 to Great" Program from Barre3. Kit from QVC-product review. Ballet/Yoga/Pilates

I just finished my week 1 of the Barre3 Spring Challenge which I posted about here:

Since I do not have a Barre3 studio near me, I'm using the DVDs from this 28 to Great program I purchased from QVC a couple months ago, as well as the Barre3 online workouts from their website here:

Let me be clear, the 28 to Great Barre3 challenge program is different from the Barre3 spring challenge I'm currently doing!! I'm just using the DVDS that I purchased as part of my workout schedule for the next 4 weeks. 

With this package from QVC you get a specific 4 week schedule using the 5 dvds and core ball. Read further below to get all the kit specifics and price. 

This was my exercise schedule this week: 

on Monday I did the 40 min Barre3 Burner with Sadie; 
on Tuesday I did the 30 min Standing Slim with Sadie; 
on Thursday I did the 40 min barre3 Ballet Fit with Candace;
today I did 60 min studio shape with Sadie. 
I have not done 30 min ballet boot camp yet but I will on Monday. 

These dvds are very clear to follow, nice background, light music not really even noticeable. I really love Sadie's personality! 

The menu gives you options to play the entire workout or 10 minute workouts. So each dvd is divided up into 10 min "sections". I choose to play the entire workout so every 10 or 11 mins the instructor did some cool down stretches to transition into the next 10 minute segment. I didn't really like that part because the workout doesn't seem to "flow" together for the full 30/40/60 minutes because of that 10 minute option. However, I learned to appreciate the break and just got some water or stretched while waiting for the next segment. Its not a deal breaker, just thought I would mention that if you're trying to keep your heart rate up for the full workout.  

I already used my 15 day promo code that comes with the 28 to Great kit and I liked that it doesn't ask for CC info to keep on file or that I have to remember to cancel anything in 15 days. awesome!! Check out their online videos-lots of variety and different instructors. 

The core ball is totally awesome and really sturdy-I love it! and it was really easy to blow up. 

This kit is a PHENOMENAL deal-I can't believe the price! The exact kit is $98 on their website and a live barre3 class is pretty expensive too!! 

I would recommend this kit to anyone looking into trying a Barre-at home method, or someone who loves Barre3 already and wanting to have the ball and dvds for home use.

  1. I'm thinking about starting the 28 to great, but I don't have a studio close to me either. Do you recommend buying the DVDs or to only use the online videos? Thanks!
