Dream Body = Studio Mixx???
 
Someone mentioned this in a DB group on FB. Someone mentioned Shandi Rooney, some photos of her with Darby and the similarity of the workouts:

ETA: is anyone in Scottsdale? Might be worth checking out.

And here, you can download the workout for $15: http://www.studiomixxaz.com/Mixx-Video.html

The moves are the same, but slower! I'd love to try it, but have issues with downloads at the moment. Maybe someday. Cool!

hotncmom 05-07-13 02:22 PM

Thanks for posting. I might go for this. Thank goodness someone out there is offering a download versus that darn streaming/subscription model.

olala 05-07-13 02:47 PM

How long is this workout? there are no info anywhere.

That's a really good question.

I bought the Dreambody set from the sale, and am expecting it this week, but I was thinking...we are going on vacation in June and this download would be perfect to take along since my laptop goes where I go. I wonder what kind of equipment needs there are?

Here's a longer promo clip:

They have a FB page. Someone asked about the video, but she really didn't respond to the question.

olala 05-07-13 07:09 PM

I bought it. It is 50 minutes barre/pilates workout. She uses sliding plates and light weights.

Glad to know that I'm not the only one that purchased this...lol. I'm at a convention in FL next week and this will be perfect to bring along with my Valslides.

The clip looks great! Thanks for posting. If it didn't have barre, it would be perfect for me.

woodie 05-07-13 09:43 PM

this is interesting...

lila_says 05-07-13 10:43 PM

For those who've purchased the download, would you rate it as inter., inter./adv., or advanced? Also, how does it compare it terms of level of intensity/difficulty to Dream Body? Thanks!

hotncmom 05-08-13 08:14 AM

I checked my Dreambody set tracking this morning and they routed it through Austin last night (why?) so if I'm lucky it will be here tomorrow. So I was thinking about buying this download to give me something Dreambody-ish to do today. I would like to see more details on the workout first (to me, $15 is a lot for a download). Is there a warm up? Stretching? Does it include more exercises than just those you see on the promo? It says there are 8 segments to the workout. What does that mean? TIA

olala 05-08-13 09:25 AM

Yes, there a stretch, a little bit warm up, very similar to the original Dream Body, Barre/Cardio(using plates)/abs/core. It is an intermediate workout.

momofcha 05-08-13 10:06 AM

I may, or may not have just caved myself :o

I just downloaded it. I promise to review it. I will try and preview later today, but as for doing it? It probably won't be until Friday morning... :)

fuzzie 05-08-13 11:04 AM

Thanks, Sue! Looking forward to it...

OK, here's my review upon preview only:

details/specifics: it's 30 minutes, music is almost non-existent
equipment needed: 1-2lb. weights, gliding discs, barre or chair

Start with a quick warm up:
down dog (further known as DD) alternating leg pulses/heel pumps
DD to push ups
push ups
DD leg lifts
plank leg pulses (pulling leg to chest & back)
mountain climbers
side plank - grab weight and in free arm hold weight up and bring straight out to the side; then add leg lifts (WOW)
all fours - squat back, press to a full push up (similar to a move in the original DB DVD)
switch sides and repeat all moves
forearm plank to straight arm planks
little strech

Section 2 - barre/chair
wide leg plie pulses in releve
pulse legs back when in wide plie
one leg releve wide leg plies, arms straight up
wide leg releve pulses holding barre (tuck)
other leg releve wide leg plies, arms up
alternating releve/flat pulses in wide (sumo squat) pulses (a la P57)

side to the barre, hold on, leg lifts straight in front
weight in hand on same side, lower arms to meet leg lifting, pulse that move; hold that move and do small leg circles
switch sides

Section 3 - cardio - uses gliding discs
mountain climbers using discs (30 sec)
rest - shuffle side to side slowly
repeat mountain climbers (20 sec)
rest - shuffle
mountain climbers (10 sec)
shuffle

grab weights
same move as in Bikini Bootcamp
one leg static, other behind you, hold weights - bring leg from behind to chest, lowering arms to meet in front
gliders
mountain climbers intervals again (30 sec; 20 sec; 10 sec) as before
repeat bikini bootcamp move on other side
mountain climber series again (30 sec, 20 sec, 10 sec)

Section 4 - blutes
on all fours put left leg straight to side
bring leg from the side to behind the bent knee (very similar to the original DB move)
keep leg straight to side - pulse, then circle in each direction
side plank (knee down), other leg straight out, arm on head - lift and lower leg; circle leg

on back (bridge work)
one leg on releve, as you lift, other leg is straight out and lift toward head; then pulse the leg
stretch

repeat on other side
stretch

Section 5 - Inner Thighs
sit down, one leg bent, other straight out
grab weights
lean back (slight c-curve), hold arms straight out to side, bring arms in toward body and lift straight leg, repeat
pulse arms & legs
hold arms straight out and circle straight leg in both directions
shake thighs out, stretch
repeat other leg

Section 6 - Abs/core
flat on back - legs straight in air, arms behind head
pull legs to chest, lift head to meet
leg straight out, other leg straight up - bring head to leg straight in air, lift and lower other leg
repeat both moves with other leg

bent arm plank holds
bent arm plank, lift leg out to the side and bend it bringing to your arms
repeat other leg (works obliques)
child pose
DD to push up to side plank - alternating sides
DD
child pose
DD
stretch

My overall impression - this is definitely DB "lite" the moves are much slower, more deliberate. Definite similarities, I think for those that think DB is too frantic would really enjoy this. I think this is a great place to start. She does a lot of explaining - what each section is accomplishing and the actual breakdown of moves. The actual number of reps is much lower than DB. I liked it and really like the 30 minute length - it will definitely come in handy.

Thank you for the review, Sue.

But is it 50 minutes or 30 minutes? TIA

hotncmom 05-08-13 01:11 PM

Thanks for the breakdown! Yes, 30 minutes or 50 minutes might make or break the decision at $15.

Huh, I'm not in Scottsdale but it's not TOO far away. Might be something to try out when I need to get out!

Someone just posted in a different thread that it is actually 50 minutes. Hope that helps!:)

Is this clip from there online workout? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmJrVQttJxM

You're welcome. :)

And thanks for the review Sue. $15 might seem like a lot for download but compared to the cost of the DB set it's a relative bargain.

editstein 05-12-13 04:53 PM

Someone asked them on Facebook if they'd be putting out anything new, and they responded that they're filming three new workouts in late June. They haven't said if they'll be streaming or on DVD, but I did ask them and am waiting to hear back. I'll keep you posted if they respond. :)

Pam61 05-22-13 12:03 PM

I would be interested in a DB-Lite, but hope they will be released to DVD!

Pam

PhyllisG 05-22-13 01:13 PM

Me too!

F1mom 05-22-13 03:19 PM

Just read on FB that StudioMixx will be releasing 3 more workouts in June. I'll definitely keep my eyes on this. :)

Poodlepants 07-12-13 08:53 PM

Has anyone heard anything about the three new videos? I emailed Shandi about 3 weeks ago and did not get a response. I am not on Facebook and I am very interested in the new downloads.

Cheers. :heart:

I've been stalking their Facebook page, and so far there hasn't been any new news. What a bummer that she didn't email you back!

LeanneM 07-13-13 09:24 AM

They just posted this on their Facebook page:

"They are coming I promise!"

There's no mention of when, but it sounds like they might be right around the corner!:)

Sophb21 07-13-13 09:31 AM

Here is her reply!

Sophia we have three DVDs and online downloads coming soon. Taking a little longer than expected! We will keep you posted!!

I hadn't realized that they were going to make these as DVDs (I had just heard them say that they would be downloads)! Yay!!!

PhyllisG 07-13-13 11:18 AM

New DVDs. I am interested. Thanks for the info.
