Reviews

No time to exercise? We have the solution the 10 Minute Solution Everyone can find at least ten minutes in their day, and we ve developed 5 dynamic Pilates workouts that are just 10 minutes each. The workouts will slim and re-shape your entire body by using a band to add challenge to classic mat Pilates exercises and even mimic the resistance offered by traditional Pilates machines (like the Reformer and the Cadillac) which are usually only available in private studios. You can split these routines into 5 separate workouts or do them all together for the ultimate body-transforming workout! Please note that Slim & Sculpt Pilates DOES NOT include a resistance band.

Format: DVD
I have the other 10 Minute Solution with the same instructor Suzanne Bowen (Perfect Body Pilates) and enjoyed it so much that I was really looking forward to Slim and Sculpt Pilates. And like the other DVD, this one is fun and challenging and the minutes fly by.

If you're worried that it will all be the same stuff as Suzanne Bowen's previous pilates DVD, you needn't worry - this is VERY different. The main difference is that you need an exercise resistance band to do almost ALL the exercises on this DVD. It is centred around the resistance band, and all sections, including abs and all over body pilates, make use of the resistance band. The American edition of this DVD has a sticker on it saying that a free band is included - word of warning however: the newly released British version does NOT include the resistance band!! So if you're buying the British release, order a resistance band at the same time so that you can start using your DVD straight away, otherwise you won't ba able to do any of it. (There's also a free resistance band included in Yogalates Energizer with L. Solomon, which is actually cheaper than buying a resistance band, plus you get another workout video!)

Working out with the resistance band is great and makes such a change to just moving your limbs about; the band makes you focus on other parts of your body as well. Suzanne shows you how to modify to increase resistance and get even more out of your work out, just by holding it nearer or further from the centre.

The first section is Lower Body Pilates which really flies by, it is so much fun, and because you're using the resistance band I personally find that my legs ache much less than without a band, perhaps because you take some off the pressure off by using your arms??

This really does works every muscle in your body! at first look it didn't seem that hard but when I tried it I discovered a challenging work there is also room for progression because you can make the band shorter to create more resistance. Great abs work out and inventive use of the band like having your own pilates machine at home. Its not easy but its fun and is of the high quality Ive come to expect of the 10MS series. I think its probably more suitable for people who have done pilates before as theres no instruction on how to find your core.

After nearly three months of using this workout dvd, I think it's time for a review.
Before I tried it out, I watched it all the way through, to get an idea of what I was getting into. The first thing that I noticed was the lack of a proper introduction to Pilates, which I believe all Pilates DVDs ought to include, and some rather incomplete instructions at times.
When I first tried it out, the incomplete instructions meant I had to look at the screen while trying to do the exercise, something that is hard when you are supposed to be hinging at your hips, holding a band straight ahead, and going "up and over to the right, with your hips, like so". But I learned the move, and now I just smile (because that's what you do after 20 times)
There are also times when she explains something right after telling you to inhale, and doesn't tell you to exhale until she is done. She doesn't repeat the inhale-exhale instruction during the next repetition, so you have to get the breathing rythm on your own.
She will tell you to keep the pelvis in a nice neutral position, but she hasn't explained what that should look or feel like, so, again, a Pilates beginner will have to find additional instruction on positions elsewhere.

With that off my chest, I'll concentrate on what I like about the workout.
It's fast-paced, meaning you get a lot done in a short period of time. Always a bonus!
You can grow with it. Start out slow, with a lightweight band, and work on from there.
You can customise your workout, making it longer or shorter, depending on the time you have or want to spend working out.
The "Upper body" and "Abs" sections are a lot more strenuous than they appear!
I love that stretch section at the end.

I'm a big fan of the 10 minute solution DVDs, especially if you find it hard to get motivated like me. if i'm feeling really lazy i'll just aim to do 2 sections but end up doing all 5 of them and have a really good workout! it goes so quickly!
one thing i will warn you about is be careful which resistance band you use, I borrowed my boyfs, which was more like a rubber cord with handles at the end, NOT good for some of the moves, the "cord" ended up rolling off my foot and smacking me in the face at least 3 times! i couldnt continue my workout after that because i was too busy wetting myself laughing. so make sure you get a resistance band that is FLAT

all in all, i'm really pleased with it, the hardest section is probably the arms section, which is also my favourite!

I have 3 of the 10 minute solution Pilates DVD's and they are all very good. I thought that by having a workout with a band it would make the moves harder - in the main it makes them easier!
If you want a not too difficult workout this is for you. And, if you have others in the range don't bother with this one.
