5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Variety - Good Boredom Buster August 14, 2006
I knew I'd like this - I have Lara's 2 other videos and I like her style. She cues well and has a nice, calm demeanor. Rapid Results is different from her other pilates video. In this there are pilates classics with a twist. In the arms section you'll do saw with weights in both hands. I really felt that all over. The bun/thighs section has floor exercises: frog, bridge and side lying leg lifts with lots of leg variations. The abs section was very effective. Again, leg variations make you really feel it in your lower abs. The total body section was tough and I also felt like the stretch was a workout! If you like variety over endless reps you'll love this workout. It's not the same old pilates moves. Lara doesn't show many modifications; but I don't think this was meant for beginners. It's a fluid workout and I was challenged by each 10 minute section.

This workout DVD is fabulous- I love how its broken down into 10 minute segments so that you can customize it depending on your time constraints a/o fitness needs, or can do the whole thing for one terrific workout!

What makes this DVD better than some of the other pilates DVD's on the market is: (1) very good breathing and technique cues (SO important); (2) instruction while doing the moves as opposed to wasting time explaining what you're going to be doing (so that you're actually moving for all 10 minutes of each segment); (3) really rigorous segments- you'll work up a sweat in just ten minutes no matter which one(s) you do; (4) short reps which really focus in on technique and doing the moves the right way to reach results; (5) some new and interesting moves- not merely the same old ones you see on every other DVD out there; (6) NO excuses allowed- everyone can find just 10 extra minutes at the very least to squeeze in a great workout; and (7) something for everyone- whether you're looking to tone your core, arms, hips, butt or legs, you'll find a great workout.

If you're new to pilates, you may want to watch it first before attempting to follow it to make it easier, as the moves a/o techniques may be new to you.

My only gripe is that she recommends doing exercises- particualrly in the "core" segment- with a rounded back and not in neutral pelvis position (which I've been taught is the correct pilates position). Apart from that one complaint, its an awesome workout and you'll feel it the next day whether you do one segment or all of them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful advice if you buy this dvd October 30, 2006
I bought this DVD after taking a pilates class with the pilates machines, so I was familiar with some of the mat moves throughout the five 10-minute sections. My pilates teacher told me that if I purchase ANY pilates DVD to supplement the pilates/machines class, the best way to do it is this:

1 - Review the move according to the teacher and practice it once.

2 - Pause the DVD.


4 - Do not try to keep up with the teacher.

After 4-6 sessions on the DVD, you should be able to do the moves SLOWLY, but WITH STRENGTH and BETTER CONCENTRATION - AT YOUR OWN PACE, even if it takes you longer than the prescribed 10 minutes.

If you try to keep up with Lara - you could end up inflaming your lower back, or straining your neck.

You have to ask yourself - what's my goal?

To get stronger?

Or to get it over with in 10 minutes?

5.0 out of 5 stars Very effective~! September 16, 2006
I had tried one other pilates dvd and didn't like it but since I enjoyed other 10 Minute Solution dvds I thought I would give this one a try and I am so glad I did! The time flew by for each segment and I really enjoyed Lara as an instructor. You also add hand weights to some segments which is nice. In fact the only equipment needed was a carpeted floor or pilates mat, and light hand weights. Plus you are able to do this workout bare foot, a nice change of pace. My only complaint is that I could not do all the moves in the cardio segment, too advanced for me but hopefully in time I will increase my flexibiity. I highly recommend this dvd for an intro to pilates or for those already at intermediate levels. I found it relaxing but could feel the burn afterwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this series :-> August 5, 2006
These workouts are so good in the respect that they don't allow you any excuses. EVERYONE can find 10 minutes - and more often than not, after the first 10 minutes you find the energy to turn that into 20 or 30 minutes.

This workout is a little more fast paced than other Pilates dvds I've done, but it still uses the classic moves. As usual, each 10 minute routine focuses on a specific body part (first is buns/thighs, second is arms/shoulders, third abs, fourth a total toning and lastly a stretch). The instructor Lara Hudson, is a good cuer and so you know what's coming up next and are always prepared. They do use weights so you should have some nearby.

I love this dvd. I've only done it once through once, because I just got it, but I intend to use it about twice a week along with the other workouts of theirs. It's easy to get through because of the time and it's fun and different. I recommend it for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Pilates DVD December 21, 2006
I've had a few different pilates DVDs and this one is the best. It really helps that the instructor tells you when to breath in and out and you can hear her breathing. You can synchronize the 5 different workouts in the order you want. Some of these exercises are different from the ones on other pilates DVDs. For example, I've never seen the teaser on any other workout. It's my favorite. I have used Winsor Pilates and I used to think it was great, but it really hurt my neck compared to this one. This 10 Minute Solution Pilates doesn't hurt and it really works DEEP into your muscles. I think I can replace weight lifting with this DVD.
