Improve your posture and lose that tummy!

"After having a baby I tried aerobics and weight training but just couldn't lose that stubborn fat around my mid section, within a few weeks of using breaktrough core conditioning pilates I noticed that I was losing my tummy, and as a bonus my posture was improving. I also had less lower back pain from the improved posture.
I gave my tape to a friend and am ordering a replacement copy for myself.
This is a great tape for someone who is able to do an aerobic workout, but if you are looking for something hardcore, this isn't the tape."
Liked the workout, not boring.

"After doing the Windsor Pilates for about a year, I decided to try someone different. I have done Tracey York's workouts in the past and found them challenging but not impossible with repeat workouts. The presentation was slow at times but they can be fast forwarded. I really liked the workout and felt it was more targeted than the Windsor's. I will be trying some of the other workouts. Tracey and Michelle worked well together and taking turns made it easier to get to "know" both the instructors."
Pleasant introductory routine with instructional pauses

"This is a fairly nice introductory video, with nice instruction and reminders about form and breathing. It goes a little slow, with pauses and instructions in between some of the exercises (not all). Some of the exercises are very challenging. I've been working out for a solid month every day, and was not able to do a few of them, so beginners may have to skip or modify some exercises (or better yet...get a more appropriate beginners video). The instructors are encouraging but don't make many suggestions for modifications.
Overall, an OK pilates video, but you can do better for both instructional quality (see instructor Ana Caban) or non-stop routines without pauses. I checked this one out from my local library, and after trying it out, I wouldn't buy it. Netflix does have this title available for rental."
