5.0 out of 5 stars Really really good :-0 August 26, 2008
Format:DVD
To be honest, I must say that Pilates isn't my favourite type of workout and I normally avoid it, but I thought that buying a dvd like this where the pilates is 10 minutes long per segment, would be a great way for me to get to like it more and get better at doing it. I was right. This is a fantastic workout that anyone could do - even if you're like me who doesn't always enjoy it.
Suzanne is a great instructor - not intimidating in any way and instructs really well. She leads you through classic pilates mixed with dance and even strength-training to mix it up and make your results amazing. There is standing and floor work and a really good stretch at the end (or beginning if you play it that way). Overall, this is a routine done at a faster pace than normal with a little more intensity but it's fine if you are beyond a beginner exerciser. I think you need to already be familiar with Pilates to avoid getting frustrated that you don't know how to do the moves. My two favourite segments are the arms workout and the stretch.
I really enjoy this and as always, love knowing that I can do as little or as much as I'd like, or can fit in, and I know this is very effective. I really recommend it to intermediates and advanced exercisers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Pilates Workout for intermediate to advanced January 11, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I considerd myself pretty well-versed in Pilates after mastering Lara Hudson's two DVDs and Suzanne's other "Slim and Sculp Pilates" DVD. I was excited when I found this DVD because I loved Suzanne in "Slim and Sculpt" and "Belly Blast." She is cute, fit, and gives GREAT instruction on form, timing, and breathing.

This DVD is nothing short of an amazing workout. My only caution is... don't use this as a beginner or if you are not familiar with Pilates moves. This is a fast-paced, high intensity workout.

The belly section is cool because it's not all the same tired pilates moves, and you can definetely feel it working.

The arm and shoulders uses not just the hand weights, but also just your own body weight to challenge you. Again, some new moves, and some variations on old ones. VERY EFFECTIVE. I can still barely keep up with it after months of doing it.

The Buns and Thighs is just as fast and just as effective. My husband likes watching me do the last move, where you are on your knees and you have to circle your hips. It may seem like a come on, but trust me, it's a great way to tone your thighs.

Silhouette is probably my favorite segment because you get to work all the muscles in your body at once. It's actually very fun and the 10 minutes is up before I know it.

The Stretch is quite beautiful. Suzanne moves so gracefully in this segment, you can't help but want to mimick her. It also leaves you feeling great. It will help you relax and ease any sore muscles. I would suggest isolating thi segment for use after ANY workout. Continuation of this stretching will help you become more graceful. The entire practice of Pilates has improved my posture, balance, coordination, and grace. Not to sound sexist, but that is why I love Pilates because I feel it was designed for women to help us stay sexy and still hold up that air of refinement at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best pilates DVD workout August 26, 2008
By fit149
Format:DVD
This pilates workout had my muscles shaking and burning in the first few reps.I loved every segment- It was very intense, easy to follow, and flowed very well. There are no fluffly moves in this workout- you can feel every exercise working. Suzanne is upbeat and keeps the workout moving...there is no room for boredom- this workout is so unique and creative. Every segment is so effective so you don't have to do the entire 5 segments. I was pleased to finish the workout with a great stretching segment, and trust me you need it after working so hard!!! This workout is definitely for all levels because she offers modifications. This is such a well-rounded workout. You will feel every muscle in your body worked!! My muscles felt stronger, more toned, and lengthened after doing this DVD. Pilates Perfect Body is a must have!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some twists, but not what I'd hoped for December 17, 2008
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD because it was described in other places as a fusion between the Lotte Berk Method and Pilates. In the intro, Bowen pretty much says the same thing. I am a Pilates and yoga instructor, and my class participants have enjoyed the barre twists I've included. I was hoping that this would provide some innovative choreography ideas. While I found a few of the movements useful, overall this was not what I wanted. Further, I question the efficacy and safety of some of the movements.

I did like Bowen's variation on the Criss Cross and part of the Corkscrew, and I thought she included a nice stretch segment at the end. She also gets points for including extension (back) exercises in the "belly" segment, which a lot of Pilates practices ignore. I also liked her inclusion of "knee dancing", a fun Lotte Berk movement that can get into the legs and abs pretty well.

What I didn't like, off the top of my head: the head up for Corskcrew- why destabilize your upper spine when you're rotating your lower spine; the position of the legs for the Hundred- while it certainly does engage the inner thighs, the outer hips are being overstretched- again, why compromise stability; the circular movements of the arms with weights, especially when they are extended behind the body- most people are pretty tight through their shoulders, and many would find that uncomfortable.

The variations on the side series were okay- nothing special that hasn't been seen before. Same would apply to the Silhouette/Total Body segment, which combined Pilates movements with Ballet. I feel like Lara Hudson's Rapid Results Pilates, which I liked a little bit better, did a better job with that.

Bottom line: there are both better Pilates and Pilates-fusion workouts out there.
