"This review is on "Pilates on the Go on the Ball" only :
This is a great pilates based workout on the ball ,I was surprised no one reviewd this product and there weren't even a picture so I decided to buy it based upon reviews on videofitness.com (I purchased it at a cheaper price at deepdiscountdvd).
The dvd quality is great and Maria Leone performs the workout at an outdoors location next to a pool and there's a beautiful landscape of green hills. Maria's instruction is clear and easy to follow , the workout starts with a little warm up with some bouncing on the ball which was really fun, afterwards there are some pilates abs based moves with the ball which were familiar from other ball workouts , there's a fun exercise in which while lying on your back , you throw the ball and have to catch it between your legs, also theres some bridge variations on the ball
, back extensions , short sidework for the legs and some pushups
the workout ends with some very nice stretches.The workout is about 40 minutes. After the workout I felt calm and centered , this is not the most challenging workout you'll find so I would say it's good for intermediates and advanced people who want an easier workout, I wouldn't recommend it for people with no experience working out on the ball or that are not in good shape.
I'm a pilates instructor myself and I would definitely recommend
