Really liked it!! Quite challenging!! Even though I have been exercising for years, and have done pilates for quite some time, this was very challenging! I loved how they went from one move directly to the next, so accomplished much in a short time. Some moves I had never done, and probably looked quite silly as I attempted them for the first time, but that makes me want to come back and do better. New moves keep your body guessing, which is what its all about. I liked the length, long enough, but not too long, and how they finished with some standing movements which leave you energized. A definite keeper!

"While this is a low impact workout, it is far from a day at the beach. Ana Caban leads you through a series of challenging Pilates exercises designed to boost your metabolism. While you are burning calories you are also developing lean muscles and testing your endurance.
The exercises move at a rapid pace so there is no time for a beginner to learn the exercises. This was created for anyone familiar with Pilates and especially anyone who has been through the "Quick Start Pilates for Weight Loss" workout. Ana Caban provides enough variety to make this routine interesting for intermediate to advanced students of Pilates.
There are many traditional exercises like the hundred, single leg circles, rolling like a ball, swan, teaser, spine stretch forward, roll-up, corkscrew, plank, open-leg rocker, scissors, seal, Ronde de Jambe and neck pull. She also includes some new exercises (crab and snake) to test your creativity.

Superb pilates video

"This pilates workout is the best pilates video I've come across so far. I've been doing Winsor Pilates for a couple years now, and Caban's Maintenance Pilates is a welcome contrast. Caban is very calm and soothing (unlike Winsor's peppy and rushed style). The motions are slow and deliberate, yet Caban goes through each exercise quite swiftly and fast enough for the non-beginner. This has become my regular pilates video, and Winsor Pilates does not compare to this in rigor or style. This video has marked the beginning of an improvement in my quality of life. I have increased mobility and flexibility, and my back and hip stiffness significantly decreases after I complete the workout everyday. What is different about this video is that when I'm doing the exercises, I'm not thinking, "I can't wait for this to end." I enjoy the full stretch of the each exercise, and I don't even get bored or unattentive during the +25 minutes of the video.
I don't think this particular workout would be suitable for beginners. Caban's explanations are great, but they are not thorough enough for the first-timer. The exercises can be difficult at times."
Ana has done it again!!

"Wow! Ana sure knows how to pack a wallop in just under 30 minutes!! Maintenance Pilates definitely takes the Pilates exercises to a whole new level! Some new moves I never seen before have been included in this workout, such as the crab (it'll take a while for me to master this move). Anyway,everything is included in this workout,leg work, arm work, including cardio (jumping jacks). In addition, Ana has also included a 15-minute bonus workout. This one has a fun move, like the rolling like a ball around the clock. I can't wait to practice this move. Ana, you are SO good!!
Another feature I noticed is that there is a langauge option in doing this work-either regular English or Spanish. I think that's an awesome thing to."
