Really liked it!! Kathy uses different exercises, they easily transition from one to the next, her cues act as good reminders to create the correct positioning, to get the most from the exercises. I liked how there was a good warm up, cardio, different workouts for arms and legs, so could mixup and do whatever was possible for that day. Cool down good too. So I think this is one I will use for a while!!!
A great pilates workout

"I absolutely love Kathy Smith's workout videos and bought this one and was not disappointed. She does a short workout (about 4-5 minutes), and then comes a 20 minute cardio workout, then a 10 minute upper, 10 minute lower and a 5 minute cooldown. I am used to doing much 'harder' cardio workouts from her but this one concentrated on working your core, which is meant to strengthen your core and abs, not just give you a sweat. By the end of the 20 minute cardio, I was sweating (just not as much as I'm used to). Her upper and lowers were 10 minutes each and that was a little on the short side for me. I'm used to doing a 20 minute upper and 20 minute lower, which I feel is more beneficial.
If you have 50 minutes to spare, this is a great all-over body workout that does cardio, upper and lower along with a warmup and cooldown. My favourite DVD from Kathy Smith is her "Lift Weights to Lose Weight Volume 2".
I would recommend this DVD to anyone that is looking for an all-in-one workout. If you're looking for more of a complete workout, then go for her aerobics and do 40 minutes of that along with one of the workouts on Lift Weights to Lose Weight Volume 2."
Good for a light exercise day

"This workout is fun but not very intense. The pilates standing and mat sections are much better than the cardio section. It is good for a day when your muscles are tired but you still want to work out. It is hard not to like Kathy Smith no matter what she does."
Nice cardio, nice muscle conditioning

"I do a lot of Leslie Sansone workouts, so the cardio on Peel Off the Pounds was a really nice change -- low impact, no complexity, nice jazzy music. You can make it as dancey or athletic as you like. Kathy follows up the cardio with some nice muscle conditioning pilates moves for the entire body -- again, nothing too difficult, but definitely enough to know you've been worked. Highly recommended for beginners, beginner/intermediates, or intermediates (like me!)"
