Not a killer but still good

"Sculpt-ilates is a 50-minute pilates sculpt workout. I found it challenging, but not overly so. There were no impossible Teasers or lengthy plank moves. It was nice to have a workout that I could do in bare feet. I didn't break a huge sweat, but now that I've finished, I feel great and my body feels stronger. Definitely give this a try on a day when you want to work your body without having to huff and puff around the room. The DVD came with an 84", steel-gray Pilates band with the Gaiam name and logo printed on it. You'll need a mat or carpet for the floor work. Although the release date seems to be September 2008, I think it was filmed before the recent Firm releases, as it has the white-brick background, not the blue/gray set they're using these days. Robyn Johnson is the lead, and her cueing is fine. However, the camera doesn't always follow her properly. Sometimes a new move is being demonstrated, but the camera misses it. This also happens sometimes when castmember Kelsie Daniels is demonstrating the easier modification. This minor problem can be solved by viewing the entire video before performing it yourself. Other castmember: Alison Davis. Overall, I'm happy with this one."
Not as good as I hoped

"I just did this video and was dissappointed and bored. Unfortunately this is a very slow beginning and the camera work needs help, since ofter she starts a new move, but the camera is off somewhere else and totally misses it. I love pilates and the firm so I had great hopes for it, but sadly it did not live up to them. I would recommend Windsor Pilates over this one any day. There was no challenge in this at all and definitely boring."
Good for a low impact day

"I enjoyed this video as a change up from my usually high impact days. It gave me a workout at a low impact and later my ab muscles were a little sore. Would recommend for a light work out day. Remember the point of these types of exercise is low impact and to lengthen and tone your body."
