    PERFECT for beginners, December 26, 2006

    This review is from: Pilates For Beginners (DVD)

    I had been searching for a way to strengthen my core in hopes that it would lessen my chronic lower back pain. I tried a park district class for 6-7 weeks but had to quit because my back was getting worse and i thought that i just didn’t have the strength to do pilates. My friends kept insisting that pilates, when done correctly would really help me with my problems. I looked in to private lessons and knew i wasn’t able to make the financial or time commitment. I decided to give it one more go with the aid of a dvd. I lucked in to this dvd- picking it because it had Beginners in the title. What i didn’t expect was to get such detailed oral and visual instruction. I understood more watching the dvd than i did in the classroom. It is easy to follow and has helped to improve my core strength so i can use those muscles and depend on my back less. Maggie Rhodes not only teaches pilates moves she teaches how to move while doing them. This has been the most helpful aspect of the dvd, learning how to move correctly. She gives detailed instructions on proper posture and breathing. I enjoy the routines and the variety, looking forward to the INTERMEDIATE version(hopefully to follow.)

    This is one of the best beginner Pilates DVDs that you’ll find. The instruction is clear. The pace of the routines is perfect for someone who’s new to Pilates, there are routines that are more challenging as you progress and the beach is a very nice setting.

    Beautiful pilates video you will do often, January 1, 2007

    This pilates video stands out from the rest. The setting is a beautiful beach cove with the background audio of gentle waves, not music. After you heat up with the 100′s and rest of the warm-up you almost feel like you are on that beach next to the instructor doing the routines. Other videos are often filmed in a stark unchanging studio and can get boring after a few times.

    The instructor has a nice smile and pleasing voice, and gives just the right amount of instruction and with the right tempo, making the exercises very easy to follow while always reminding you of your posture and breath. The routines flow easily from pose to pose without unnecessary gaps or breaks. The first part is perfect for beginners, yet I found the second part challenging enough for an early intermediate level. Don’t skip the intro, where the instructor does a nice job explaining what pilates is all about and how to intergrate it in your practice.

    Since this video in enjoyable to do, I find myself practicing with it often. I just returned from a snowboarding trip and felt improvements in my core strengh, balance and flexibility. I recommend it for beginners to early intermediates who want to enhance how they feel and how they perform in sports.
