4 Stars Pilates Training DVD
I am very happy with this DVD, it is a great training DVD because it instructs you while you are learning, which makes catching on much easier.
1 Star too fast
This video progresses too quickly. What the creator seems to have forgotten is that while on the machine, lying flat the user has to stop, possibly change positions and by then the little Asian woman is far along to the next exercise. For me this dvd was a waste of money.
3 Stars Complex Pilates DVD
This is a very thorough pilates DVD. It is difficult to watch the video while doing the reformer exercises.
4 Stars Very good, overall!
I purchased this to replace my VHS pilates tapes. This is very comprehensive and I like the way you can progress from one level to the next. This DVD does incorporate other pilates equipment, so if you only have the reformer, you will need to make some modifications to your routine. The only downside to this DVD is that I wish it had music.
5 Stars quick thorough routine
I love this dvd. I’m not a Pilates expert, and I’m lazy, so the fact that the beginner routine is 7 minutes long (yes, 7 whole minutes!) and very thorough is fantastic. It doesn’t suck up 45 minutes of my day, and the instruction is easy to follow.
Basically, I come back from a run and pop this disc in and before I know it the workout is done. I’ve done the intermediate routine a few times, but I mostly stick with the beginner because it gives me the workout I need. I feel the difference in my posture immediately, and I can see the difference in my core within a week. And did I mention that it only takes 7 minutes?
