Movie Reviews

Invigorating Winter Wakeup
Rebecca Johnson | Washington State | 12/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With original music by Kevin Kuhn and an instructor who presents true Pilates challenges, this workout is an advanced exercise routine with enjoyable jazzy music to fit in with the New York Penthouse location. Wood floors, mats and candles set the studio mood and if realistic dance studios appeal to you, you will feel right at home.

The two sections present a mat workout and a standing workout with an exercise band. The exercises seemed to be very true to the basic exercises I've learned over the years. Beginners would find it very difficult to keep up with the rapid pace and lack of detailed instruction. This is definitely intermediate to advanced and will be loved by anyone looking for additional strength training and balance challenges. The main exercises

Leg Circles
Abdominal Series
Neck Pull
Spine Twist
Side Kick Series
Kneeling Side Kicks
Pilates Push-Ups

To be quite honest, I was out of breath in places. This workout might look fairly tame at first, but it is super invigorating once you get going and the main hurdle for anyone who is intermediate is to keep up with the speed of the exercises. This is a fast-paced creative dream. If you are looking for a playful yet serious workout, this might intrigue you. For serious students of Pilates who want to enhance their routine and feel like they have accomplished a dancer-style routine.

If you are feeling the winter blues approaching, this will wake you up and make you feel alive! After trying this workout, I'll definitely be reviewing the entire series. This will tighten and tone your entire body and enhance your mood.
