    With its blend of yoga and martial arts (plus a hint of dance), Xflowsion, one of the hottest workouts in Hollywood, gives you toning and cardio in one flowing routine you can do in your bare feet. Try these signature exercises from creator Eric Paskel three or four times a week for a total-body shape-up.
