Sure, you workout to look good, but shouldn’t your workout make you feel good too? “Too often I see clients who are beating themselves up in the name of fitness — and in turn, their bodies stop responding, and in many cases, turn against them with increased appetite, fatigue, and not to mention, constant muscle soreness,” says Jessica Smith, a certified wellness coach, personal trainer and co-creator of the “Yin Yang Fusion Workout” DVD.
The idea behind Yin Yang Fusion is to train with a well-rounded workout that maintains a sense of harmony, not stress, within your body. “I’ve had to tell women to stop working out in order to lose weight. If you are constantly in a state of stress – from your job, your spouse, the kids, and then heading to a killer boot camp class after a long day, you are just setting yourself up for adrenal overload, which can cause everything from sugar cravings to insomnia,” says Smith.
Smith teamed up with Sensei Guillermo Gomez, a 4th degree black belt and international fitness presenter to create the Yin Yang Fusion Workout. “We wanted to create a workout that balances, something that wasn’t too hard, or too soft, but was just the right combination of both, in order to maximize results that will last over the long term,” explains Gomez. This martial arts based workout is based on the ancient Chinese principle of balancing opposites, known as Yin Yang, and draws from a mix of styles including kickboxing, qi gong, pilates and yoga.
For best results, we recommend use the Yin Yang Fusion method of training up to 6 days a week, alternating between high and low intensity workouts and pairing them with meditation and breathing exercises.

“The yin and yang principles
~ Chuang Tzu
According to traditional Chinese medicine, the heart is considered a fire energy or “yin” organ, responsible for circulating the life force of the body. Many Chinese doctors believe the tongue and the face are tied to the heart, and may be able to diagnose heart or blood conditions by examining them.
