I use this every day and actually feel the results unlike other dvds that have you hop around, this dvd gives plenty of excellent exercises and shows that taking time, (not hopping around) and using proper form is what will get maximum results.
For starting out this dvd is AWESOME. I just wish it had 2 versions. A starter and an advanced version. After you learn the moves and know what's going on it's like 'come on already'. I wish I could find a dvd that had all of this at a faster pace.
I enjoyed this DVD for the days when I want easy and short timed stretches. However, I would have preferred the stretches to have been held for at least 25 -30 seconds each, and it seemed like each stretch was only 10 seconds each.
I stopped using dvd workouts til recently. A friend of mine loves the Jillian Michaels workouts so I purchased the extreme shed and shred dvd. The workout is GREAT, I have been working out at the gym for past 5 years and this workout will definitely CHALLENGE you. My body plateaued and this workout kicked it back into gear. Don't just walk through the workout, you must DO it and it will change you.
After having two kids and being out of shape I wanted to ease back into a low impact workout routine but also get results. This DVD is great for starting out. The pace is perfect and it's easy to follow along.\nI've noticed a change in my waist and hips immediately after only 1 week of continuous use. It's only 35 minutes so I squeeze in a quick workout after I put the kids to bed.\nI've started alternating 2 nights pilates, 1 night brisk walking on the treadmill to add some variety.When I look for a tougher workout, I repeat the floor portion of the DVD.\nI highly recommend but stress it's probably best for beginners as a more experienced pilates enthusiast may find it to be too slow.
