Shape Pilates for Pink Slimdown with Mari Winsor D&hellip
3.0 out of 5 stars nothing new!, 25 Aug 2014
This got 3 stars from me only because I have 2 other mari winsor pilates dvd and compare it to them. This is not a bad dvd, but there is little new in terms of exercises included in the workouts compared to the winsor pilates and lower body dvds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Deja Vu, 7 Feb 2014
I am a big CC fan and just bought this cd as I had bought all their previous endeavours. unfortunately for years, I tried to connect to it, identify a few gems which would stand the test of times. Nothing! I repeatedly got a feeling of indifference as the songs were passing through without anyone catching my attention. and recently, I've decided for the umpteenth time to give it another try. and suddenly it all clicked. I started to listen and appreciate it in a way that I never did before. the first part of the cd is clearly far superior to the second one. I like the rockier side which cc explored in their most underrated gem 'recovering the satellites'. these are good rock songs,… Read more
