Well structured, effective work-out,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 10 Minute Solution - Pilates [DVD] (DVD)
I am a regular gym goer but chose this DVD for its flexibility. It is absolutely fantastic if you want 20-50 minute (you chose) work-out before work or in any suitable time. It is well structured so you can select which body parts you want to work on (abs, bums, thighs, flexibility etc.) The exercises are done at the right speed and well explained - no need to keep staring at the screen at all times. The instructor also has uncanny ability to spot the most likely thing you may be experiencing ..."I know it burns, but...", "lift the leg higher.." and it helps to keep you motivated. However, I would not classify this as strict pilates as it lacks the focus on breathing and posture and there isn't enough time to get every exercise and position absolutely right. Consequently, I would not recommend for Pilates beginners, but it is really good varied, dynamic and effective work-out for the intermediates. I'm off to buy more 10 minute solutions.
