I have never done Pilates before, but i was getting tired of the same cardio work outs and weights. I wanted to try something that would give me a great core exercise while not being high intensity. This is a great starting point! The instructor, Ana, is very easy to follow, and they show you two different ways to do the challenging exercises. She has an assistant with her who does a moderated version of the challenging moves so everyone can follow along, regardless of your fitness level. The workout is not boring either, because she does not stay on the same repetition over and over again. she changes it up every few minutes so your continuously moving onto new things. I personally think this is motivating for me to push myself to do the more challenging moves with more effort because I know she will be moving onto something different in a matter of minutes. Just a suggestion: I pair this workout up with my cardio. i do about 30-40 min of cardio, then after i cool down a bit, i move onto this. i feel this gives the cardio and the strength training that is needed to accomplish an over all healthy and toned body. :) OH, and i would get a mat as well. some of the moves she does involves rolling on your back, which can be uncomfortable on your spine if you do not have a mat under you. :)

This DVD has been great for me as a pilates begginer. Instructions on technique are plain and simple.

Great Beginners DVD

I first started Pilates in a studio and frankly that's where I recommend people start so they get the proper feel for the exercises and correction from an instructor. However, my studio which teaches the classic traditional style recommended Ana for "real" Pilates. Love Ana! Her energy is great! I've had this DVD for over a year and I never get tired of her! This is a perfect beginners DVD. Helps you put a correct foundation in place for the Intermediate.

I owned this video years ago and loved it. Once I "mastered it" I gave it to a friend and bought the intermediate. Several years and a 2nd child later, I am finding it difficult to get back into pilates, as the intermediate is too challenging to get thru completely since the birth of my son. So, I am repurchasing the beginner one. Is the video "easy"? Well, if it wasn't it wouldn't be called "beginner"!! I need to start out easy again. After 24 years of working out, doing crunches etc, I found that pilates tones better than anything I've ever done. Can't wait to get back to it again!

This is a great DVD for those new to pilates. It is not too intimidating but helps to build a good foundation of core strength. It is true that it isn't a strenuous workout, but it isn't meant to be. If you are new to pilates or core fitness it is worth a try, you will improve core strength and flexibility in a safe manner. When I first started with this DVD I could not do the moves without using the modifications; however, after 1-2 months I was seeing results and ready for the intermediate tape. Whenever I have fallen off the fitness wagon, this workout helps to get me back on track.
