3.0 out of 5 stars Correct Workout Sequence February 15, 2010
Format:DVD
I contacted Gaiam about the mysterious disconnect between the order of the 5 workouts on the back cover vs. the actual order on the DVD. Following is the correct sequence:

1) AM Pilates with Jillian Hessel
2) PM Pilates with Ana Caban
3) Pilates for Weight Loss Maintenance with Ana Caban
4) Cardio Pilates with Ana Caban
5) Easy Pilates with Ana Caban

5.0 out of 5 stars I am becoming reaquainted with Pilates... September 2, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
and this DVD is a great place to start. Each routine lasts between 15-30 minutes and offers a variety of different exercises and levels of difficulty.
The beginner work-out (15 minutes) is just that. It starts out with modified positions and a shorter range of motion for most of the workout. It is all mat work and a good place to start.
The 2nd-4th workouts are all around 30 minutes and are mostly mat work for intermediate to advanced exercisers. The AM Pilates (4th) is different in that is starts with a series of jumps (scissor jumps, hops, jacks) etc., which I thought was too high of an intensisty before even warming up. The Cardio Pilates (3rd)is my favorite. It is all mat work with traditional (The Hundred, Double Leg Lifts, The Teasers, Side Leg Series etc) pilates moves. I can feel this one afterwards.
The 5th workout PM Pilates is a lower intesity level that would be appropriate for beginners. The back cover says that it is 27 minutes long, but it is actually about 15 minutes long.
I like the face that, if I have time, I can use this DVD for an all-over hour long workout, or if I'm short on time, a quick 15 minute workout. Overall, this is a good place to start and you will grow with this DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, varied routines May 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This one DVD has 5 different workouts on it. I already had a couple of them, but it's handy to have them all together. They are all well done and motivating. It is a beginner-level production, but gets into some kind of energetic movement, and it might be best to sit and watch the whole thing first, before actually doing the workouts - you can eat ice cream while watching, you'll burn it off after you start faithfully doing Pilates every day. I'm an old lady, and I do it!
The ladies are attractive and make you feel you can achieve what they have by following along. To a great extent, it's true. You just have to become a Pilates addict, which is not too hard.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a Keeper February 22, 2010
Format:DVD
I love doing pilates, but I did not love this DVD. My main problem with the DVD is that the numbers for the workouts do not match the guide on the back of the DVD. Therefore, I had to watch each workout and the time for each workout to figure out which one was which. On top of this, the time for each workout does not match what the back cover of the DVD says. For example, if the back cover says a workout segment is 27 minutes, it is probably about 20 minutes. I am familiar with and skilled at most basic pilates moves so the actual workouts themselves were OK. However, I realize I am not a big fan of Ana Caban. Even being an experienced practitioner of pilates, I like the reminders on breathing and stance and that is not something that I found too much with this DVD. If looking for good full body pilates DVDs, I would highly recommend any and all of the 10 Minute Solution DVDs. I own them all and love mixing it up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good workout September 4, 2012
Format:DVD
Like other reviewers, I was thrown off by the workouts not lining up with the back of the case.
I worked through them and figured out the correct order. If you didn't see the review with the order it goes like this:

1) AM Pilates with Jillian Hessel
2) PM Pilates with Ana Caban
3) Pilates for Weight Loss Maintenance with Ana Caban
4) Cardio Pilates with Ana Caban
5) Easy Pilates with Ana Caban

Overall I find the workout challenging. This is my first attempt at Pilates, and I hope that I will eventually be flexable to do all the moves in the work out. I'm on my second week doing the dvd and I feel like I'm getting a grasp on the workouts an am motivated to improve. This is a great workout and with the longest one being 30 minutes is an additional bonus to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Getting December 5, 2010
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this series of pilates workouts. The outdoor settings were great and the instructors, Ana Caban and Jillian Hessel, clearly knew what they were doing. The odd the was the difference in difficulty. I didn't even break a sweat during Easy Pilates, but I was completely floored by Pilates Maintenance for Weight Loss, even without the push-up sequence (I have a bad wrist). These workouts were also released separately, so if you have more than one of them, this isn't worth it, but otherwise it's a good addition to your repetoire. Note: In AM Pilates, the instructor uses an exercise band, but this is not absolutely necessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars FABULOUS October 9, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love pilates and find this mix fantastic- you can choose a workout you like- morning or pm. The cardio one is great as are the others. You get a great work out in 25-30 minutes. Highly recommend this. Have tried other pilates videos, but this really stands out, if you enjoy pilates, and are home wishing you were doing a pilates class- this will fit the bill and really make you happy you ordered it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good. September 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had bought one from this series before so I knew what I was expecting. One of the sets however is a repeat from the first dvd I bought called Pilates Tone and Burn Collection. So I had a double up, which is a bit of a bummer but that aside these work outs are real good. You will need a stretchy band (used in pilates) for one of the sets also but its not necessary. I also thought, going by the title, that this would contain a workout for each day , like at consistant level. It does have workouts but they are more random, some easier than others. I would definately recommend buying this though. It has got a good range of workouts which is good if your a beginner. Also Ana Cabain is a fantastic instructor who has a sense of humour which is a must in my opinion.
