Jari Love and Razor Fitness Introduce "GET EXTREMELY RIPPED" Workout DVD

Uses Scientific Approach to Burn the Most Calories and Carbs in the Shortest Amount of Time

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2009) - Certified fitness trainer/instructor Jari Love today introduces her new "GET EXTREMELY RIPPED" DVD ($14.99), which takes her popular "Get Ripped" workout series to a more intense level. The new DVD expands Love's proven system to help people of any fitness level shed unwanted pounds and gain muscle definition at home in just weeks. Now available from Razor Fitness,, this 60-minute program can also be broken down into two 30-minute workouts and features exercises scientifically proven to be the most effective in burning carbohydrates and calories in the shortest amount of time. As in all the other DVDs in Love's "RIPPED" series, the exercises in "GET EXTREMELY RIPPED" are very simple and easy to follow, but they use lots of reps because this keeps the heart rate elevated while sculpting the muscles.

One of Love's clients recently lost 65 pounds in 12 weeks using her program. "'GET EXTREMELY RIPPED' is effective because you can build up to it," says Love. "If you just work at it consistently, your body is ready for new challenges every few workouts. That's how you get great results."

"This routine actually burns carbohydrates, not just fat," says Love. "In order to lose weight effectively, it's important to have sustained and effective energy from complex carbohydrates (such as oatmeal, bran, vegetables and fruit). This will not only allow you to burn carbohydrates during the workout, but you'll also burn fat afterwards."

Love recommends working out with weights to everyone, but especially women who are going through menopause or who are in the stages leading up to it (peri-menopause). Weight bearing exercise is one of the most important things women can do to help fight symptoms that come with menopause, such as stress, difficulty sleeping and bone loss. Leg exercises help the body produce testosterone, which is key for building muscle and it also helps increase your sex drive, according to Love.

Love developed the "GET EXTREMELY RIPPED" workout in collaboration with an exercise physiologist and a physiotherapist to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the routine. Love determined that working all major muscle groups in a continuous fashion, and thereby keeping the heart rate elevated, allowed test subjects to constantly burn fat and it revved up their metabolism for hours after they finished exercising. To select the most effective exercises for the DVD, the laboratory performed Volume of Oxygen Consumption (VO2) testing with a metabolic cart using Love's "Get Ripped" workout as the exercise protocol. Measured variables included the percentage of carbohydrates (RER), lactic acid profile, calories (Kcal), ventilation and oxygen consumption (VO2).

The real people who are featured in "GET EXTREMELY RIPPED" work out with the program regularly. Their testimonials include reports of weight loss, improved muscle tone, increased stamina and lowered blood pressure. "I'm excited to offer my program to people who might be intimidated by going to the gym and want an effective workout they can do at home," says Love. "Exercise is also a great stress reliever during this economic recession, in addition to the more obvious health and fitness benefits."

The "GET EXTREMELY RIPPED" DVD features a "calories burned" tally for each section and a 30-second clock to indicate when an exercise is almost over to help motivate you to the finish line. A bonus eight-minute track of abdominal work is included to help you get a firmer, flatter, core-defining stomach. From beginning exercisers to advanced, this DVD has modifications for all skill levels. For higher intensity, an optional workout step and handheld weights (three to eight pounds) can be added.

"GET EXTREMELY RIPPED" will be available in stores and online May 5.
