Too short and not enough guidance

"That was the quickest 20 minutes and I didn't feel like I had done anything. I followed the beginners workout but had a hard time following correct positioning. They moved through the workout rapidly, too rapidly, with almost no set up of the poses. Spend a little more and try something else."
Good but short

"Overall this a good alternative to other exercise/pilates dvds. The exercises performed are different than typical, and the ball makes them more challenging - even for fairly experienced practioners. The 20 minutes is a bit too short to feel like you accomplish much though, with slow transitions between moves and an overall slow pace."

"I purchased this last year. I did not like it because it was very slow paced, not energetic at all. The space it was filmed was like the corner of a room, and only the instructor and one assistant. how the cover looks is what you'll be viewing the whole time pretty much. i did the routine maybe two times at most and havent done it since. i wanted to use my ball but ive stuck to regular pilates [my fav] and recently started beginners bellydancing. if you want low impact ball exercise , more like yoga feel, then you might like it i guess."
20 minutes of disappontment

"I struggle to find anything positive to say about this DVD: it is way too short, it allegedly offers two levels of difficulties but having tried both I could not tell the difference (same exercises, minor changes); it keeps moving you from a standing up position to an horizontal one (laying on the mat), then it gets you to sit up, then laying down again, wasting a lot of time and not concentrating on any particular group of muscle. At the end of it I did not feel like I worked out, I did not feel like I learn any new movements nor any challenging ones. I would not recommend this DVD and neither would I buy any more from the series."
