Movie Reviews

30 minutes, not bad
A. Crotty | San Diego, CA | 06/12/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"In my opinion, one shouldn't do pilates with a DVD without first learning the basics in person from a qualified instructor. There are just too many details to get right, and an instructor can see mistakes and correct them. That said, this is a pretty good beginner-level pilates workout.

--beautiful setting, good production quality, easy to understand instructions
--30 minute workout is very convenient

--doesn't begin with the 100
--doesn't have a full 100
--doesn't include the full series of five.
--includes swan dive (modified) which seems too advanced for this DVD. (and series of five should definitely be included over swan dive!)

Overall I'm satisfied, but still looking for a more "purist" version of a mat workout at home.

Not as advertised

"This is advertised as the powerhouse workout, but when the DVD starts Jillian states that it is A.M. pilates. Gaiam just took an existing DVD workout and then marketed it as something else. It is bad business practice. Besides that, it isn't much of a powerhouse workout, and disn't raise my heartrate. I would recommend it for very out of shape people or beginners to pilates. It does offer some of the meditative/spiritual side of pilates, but not good for a workout."
