"I'm rather perplexed by the review trashing this DVD. I bought it as one of a package of three DVDs in the Stott pilates flex-band workout series and found it to be a wonderful workout. This is the introductory workout in the series, and it's a good place to start if your're not used to doing a flex-band Pilates workout.
I might add that I am not a gym rat. I exercise at home and have used a variety of DVDs, but have been drawn to the Stott series due to their safe pacing and detailed instructions. Moira is a wonderful instructor. She offers a thorough explanation of the exercises as you go through them and reminders of correct form throughout the DVD (something that Stott pilates emphasizes more that other pilates DVDs out there).
A regular stength green flex-band is included with the DVD (something you don't have to purchase to do the workout). If the intensity seems to be too low with that band, an extra strength blue flex-band is available for purchase on the Stott pilates website."
Don't buy if you are in any kind of shape

"I do NOT recommend this DVD for anyone who...
- Works out on a regular basis
- Is younger than 30 (and does not have a physical disability or injury keeping them from doing execises)
- Someone who wants to get in shape, not practically fall asleep on the mat.
- Someone who has done even the most basic pilates exercises before.
The entire workout was based around those stupid bands (which was not made clear, I don't think, by the back of the DVD) and I felt like I was stretching more than "sculpting" or toning anything."
Great thorough & precise pilates workout

"I thought this workout was great. I have done a lot of different Pilates workouts, and I think Stott Pilates is the best I've tried. Moira is so thorough in her explanations of the moves, without being overbearing. I feel challenged, but at the same time she reassures me that we should work at our own individual level. I feel very toned and invigorated with this workout. If I need more resistance, I simply shorten the band length."
