"I didn't care for this video at all. The Pilates Express Workout was just like the Winsor Pilates DVD I bought years ago of her infomercial. I was very disappointed. She also talks way too much and a lot of the time is spent taking about the correct positions.
And cadio?? What cardio?? The only exercise that even had cardio was the Quick Fix Pilates Workout.
I was looking for a challenge and this definitely wasn't it."
Not a demanding workout

"The other reviewers are pretty spot-on. The "Express" workout is really basic and boring. This was my first experience with Pilates, but I quickly became bored with the lengthy explanations and slow pace after one or two viewings. The workout does challenge the muscles, especially abs, that I'm not accustomed to using, but overall isn't very difficult.
The "Quick Fix" workout, which focuses on cardio, seems like it has a lot of potential but I don't really see the benefit of a twelve-minute cardio workout with long warm-up and cool-down. I didn't feel much burn during or after.
However, I. LOVE. the lower body mat workout. It really zones in on your legs and butt in a short amount of time and I always feel the burn by the end. After doing this workout about three or four times a week for just over two weeks (combined with running), my legs already feel stronger - I keep finding new muscles in my thighs by surprise!
If you're a pilates beginner and want to get familiar with the form, breathing, etc., this might be a good place to start. However, if you know your way around the mat already, I'm sure there are better, more challenging videos out there."
