I really enjoyed the workout, and felt that Suzanne used creative, pilates-inspired moves that were made more challenging with the band. It is a good addition to me 10 Minutes Solution Pilates collection.
Simple, challenging, and fun!

"This is hands-down one of the best Pilates DVDs I have ever tried and exactly what I'd been looking for. I like the 10 Minute Solution series in general and have both Pilates DVDs by Lara Hudson. However, I feel that "10 Minute Solution: Slim & Sculpt" Pilates lead by instructor, Suzanne Bowen (who gives excellent demonstration by the way) far outshines both of Lara's for several reasons. For one, her movements are overall safer and much simpler, generally sticking to more traditional Pilates routines - and it's far more effective. I definitely felt this working my entire body by incorporating the use of the Pilates resistance band, which offers a very similar effect to Pilates machines. The workout is divided into five 10 minute segments - each for the upper body, lower body, abdominals, a total body routine, and a stretch - which can effectively be combined or done separately. This is also one of the few Pilates DVDs on the market that is on the higher end challenge-wise, that is equally fun to do! I can tell I'll be using this one a lot. Highly recommended!
10 Minute Solution delivers again :-P

"As always, you get five different 10 minute segments here and a 6 foot resistance band. I like the fact that you can do either 10 minutes only, or close to an hour if you put them all together. Everyone can do at least 10 minutes and then before you know it, you could be at the end and have done 50 minutes.
In each of the segments, you work specific body parts like lower body and upper, total body, abs and a stretch. You can do these in any order you like and that keeps it interesting and fresh. With the band, you can hold it in different positions to give yourself more of a challenge (like making it shorter to up the resistance).
Suzanne Bowen is a good instructor and she is friendly and cues really well. This workout is fun and easy enough to do and I especially love the stretch. I like doing this whole workout in different orders each time (keeping the stretch till the end though) to not let myself get bored. I'm really enjoying this (I got it at another online source) and always look forward to new workouts from them."
Absolutely Love It!

"Suzanne is a great instructor. She cues well and makes very clear about how you should breathe. This DVD includes 5 segments: Pilates for upper body, lower body, abs, total body and flexibility. I love ALL of these segments because they are doable, yet VERY effective. With the help of the pilates band, I definitely feel the burn in the first 4 parts and have a very comfortable stretch at the end. What scary is it's addictive! The "10 minutes" is a trick! Because once I finished one segment, I want to do another! So I end up just pushing the "play all" button when I have the time. Highly recommend!"
