Second DVD workout from the bestselling author and TV star BETHENNY'S SKINNYGIRL WORKOUT On DVD September 12, 2011

Exclusively at Target and Target.com
Three easy-to-follow yoga workouts, plus recipes from the Skinnygirl Dish and bonus stretch

SILVER SPRING, Md -- Following the success of Body by Bethenny, celebrated author and reality TV star Bethenny Frankel returns with Bethenny's Skinnygirl Workout, debuting on DVD from Acacia on Monday, September 12, 2011 exclusively at Target and on Target.com (SRP: $16.99). Bethenny is the star of Bethenny Getting Married? (the most-watched series premiere in Bravo's history), and New York Times bestselling author of Naturally Thin, The Skinnygirl Dish, and A Place of Yes. Since people always ask Bethenny how she stays in shape, she created Body by Bethenny last year, and this creative-based follow-up features three yoga workouts (two 15-minute, one 20-minute) with
instructor Mike McArdle.

As Bethenny says, "Life gets hectic-some days I have 30 minutes to work out, other days I have 45, and sometimes I only have 15. That's why I designed the Skinnygirl Workout with three quick yoga segments
that tone the entire body. You can squeeze in a segment every day, or do a couple several times a week-the most important thing is that you enjoy it. I don't believe in expensive trainers. I don't believe in people yelling at you. I believe in realistic, sustainable fitness plans.

This practice will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and toned. Whether you're a first timer or an experienced yogi, this is your workout-for every day or any day.

Welcome to the Skinnygirl Workout. Make it your own, be consistent, and have fun!"

Special Features: Bonus stretching segment (12 min.) and a recipe booklet from Bethenny's Skinnygirl Dish.

Bethenny Frankel is the breakout star of Bravo's The Real Housewives of New York City and the star of Bethenny Ever After, which begins filming its third season in summer 2011. The New York Times
bestselling author is also creator of the Skinnygirl Cocktails.

Popular New York City instructor Mike McArdle has been teaching yoga for more than a dozen years. He is certified in Bikram yoga and Pilates and has also trained in vinyasa and power yoga. Bethenny has
known Mike for several years, and he's one of her favorite teachers because of his creative style and fun, flowing classes.
