    The Real Thing!

    If you want to learn authentic Pilates from a certified instructor but can't find or afford the classes, this DVD will be a great starting point. Don't let the model fool you, this is not effortless and easy. She's got over 20 years of Pilates teaching experience. I've been doing Pilates (inconsistently) for a few years and a 25 min Intermediate workout from this program has me feeling my muscles and breaking a sweat. There's lots of variety here too, even for a the non-beginner. You can choose a lower level if you don't feel as energetic, or a higher one if you want a challenge. Just like a mat class, each ''workout'' begins with the warm-up of the ''One Hundred'' and ''Roll ups'' etc., but after the first few moves (which all Pilates classes at all levels start with) the routines are different. Some are completely different moves, others have only one or two different moves or modifications, but all are different. (I actually watched the whole DVD because at first I thought a few were the same). If you want to learn authentic Pilates or supplement your Pilates classes at home, this is a great program and a good value. It really uses the capabilities of DVD by providing numerous workouts at different levels of ability. It's not just a workout video reformatted. Don't be fooled into thinking that the latest ''Pilates based'' video from the fitness diva's is what Pilate's is all about. Find a certified Pilates instructor (not the aerobics teacher at the gym) and take a class. You'll see and feel the difference.

    Great for beginners

    I gave away my copy to my Grandmother and now that my pregnancy is over, I'm buying it again. I don't want to take any chances with a different one because there are so many out there. This one is great for people who don't have consistent time schedules. If I only have 5 minutes, I get great stretches to start off the day. When I have more time, I do the longer one and really get a good workout. I can also go up a level once I'm comfortable with beginners level without feeling out of my league. My favorite is that the instructional part is seperate from the workout. It's hard to wait for the explanation while you're in the middle of a move. You can practice some moves before you start and get an uninterrupted workout. My grandma loves it, and I'm excited to start up again.

    Disappointing

    I found this DVD to be lacking both in functonality and information. There is very little in the way of improving your technique (such as breathing patterns). The cover boasts that this DVD has over 25 workouts, but many of them are simply repeats that vary only in length of time or order in which the exercises are done. Better to spend your money elsewhere.
