"I'm in my second trimester. I practiced Pilates to relieve lower back pain before conceiving and was disappointed when I realized I couldn't continue beyond my first trimester since most of the exercises have you lying flat on your back. This video, however, shows modifications so that I can continue doing the exercises I love. True, it's not as intense as regular Pilates, but the point now is to maintain fitness and relieve aches and pains, not to make fitness gains. I find that I get a good workout if I do the second trimester sequence twice (20 minutes total) and really focus on the muscles I'm working. I had started to re-experience lower back pain when I had to stop regular Pilates but thanks to this video, it's starting to fade. I think this video would be best for women who've had some Pilates experience since the instructor doesn't talk much about technique, but beginners could still benefit."
Safe but not a real workout

"The video definitely shows safe techniques, but lacks any type of intensity. I was bored and did not feel that I had any type of workout. The stretches were nice and the tape is relaxing, but that is not why I bought it."
