This Pilates workout's subtitle, "Pick Your Spot," sums up its flexibility; the three 10-minute segments each tone the abdomen, rear, and thighs using Pilates-based exercises. Crammed into each segment are up to 10 exercises. "Belly" features the 100, criss-cross, twist, and mermaid; "Butt" includes swimming, double leg kicks, and leg circles; and "Thighs" offers the frog, front kicks, and leg lifts. While each segment is too brief to challenge veteran exercisers, viewers are free to hit the pause button and add reps. Plus, a 10-minute bonus total-body Pilates workout proves more demanding than the individual segments. L.A. Crunch instructor Ellen Barrett does an excellent job of initiating newbies to the regulated breathing and core muscle control needed for the exactness of this exercise system. However, visual clarity is somewhat hampered by a crowded set of eight exercisers when Barrett and one other person demonstrating the modifications would have been enough. --Kimberly Heinrichs

Customer Reviews

This is a great DVD for pilates beginners.
LizzyACB
For a beginner it is very easy to follow and you can make it less challenging by doing the modifications, but you still get a workout.
Kelli
It's great for if you've got a lot of time or just 10 minutes.

Format: DVD
The beauty of the Pilates DVD workouts is that you can workout for 10-40 minutes or pick any section or sequence. I recommend doing the entire 40 minutes. This workout goes by so quickly. For some reason, time seems to fly by extra fast. I could not believe how fast each section went by.

There are four 10 minute workouts on this DVD, not just three. There is a Bonus 10-Minutes Total Body Pilates Workout which finally includes moves like the teaser and roll-ups which are essentials.

10 minutes Belly
10 minutes Butt
10 minutes Thighs
10 minutes Challenge

I like that this is 40 minutes, but I wish they would have included a longer warm-up and cool-down section. This routine needs some stretching moves at the end. I guess that is not the focus but I felt like I wanted to do stretching at the end.

The frog move was interesting and I've not see this in other videos. There is a nice flow to most of the movements although if you are used to doing the "side series" all at once, it is broken up between the Butt and Thigh workouts.

There is an exercise at the end of the challenge section that you can do more easily if you have a couch behind you for support. I discovered that today! I've never been able to do one of the exercises and finally did it today!!

I would not recommend this DVD for anyone with lower back problems. The exercises are done much faster than in Winsor Pilates or even Pilates on the Go. There is a great advantage in having a wide variety of workouts because then you can modify some of the exercises to suit your individual needs. Like, her version of the bicycle was much faster than I'm used to, so I just did my own thing and did less.

Format: DVD
I was in a video store and saw this and noticed that the workouts were 10 minutes a piece, which is good for someone who is really time crunched like me. I also noticed the bonus 10 minute total body work out and you may be thinking "There is no way I can get a total body work out in 10 minutes" but that is SO untrue. I've been doing this for a few days and I'm surprised at how different my body feels, just from a few days of doing the workout. My abs feel tighter, my thighs hurt in all the right places. It's an excellent workout for someone who can't spend a lot of time working out like they want, but wants to do something that will target the buns, thighs and abs. You'll be looking great in a bikini in no time if you stick to this. The production on this DVD is much better than the previous Crunch videos that I've purchased. The cueing is perfect this time around, the instructor has a soft, gentle voice and she gives excellent instructions and clear directions, but isn't really chatty or anything. And I'm glad theres someone doing the modifed verisons of some of the excerises for whenever I get a little lazy. But don't be fooled. They still get the job done. This DVD is great!

Format: DVD
I wasn't surprised that I liked this workout, because I really liked Crunch's Perfect Yoga Workout too. This DVD is awesome. There are 4 10-min workouts on it. One concentrates on Abs, one on Butt, one on Thighs, and there is one for Total Body.
The Ab workout is pretty tough, but there is a person doing modifications. I read that someone complained that you can't see that person, but you shouldn't be looking at the screen while you are doing it anyway. The instructor tells you "For this one, Betsy will be keeping her knees bent" So you know if you are having trouble, just do whatever she suggested. You should watch any workout before you do it, and they do show Betsy doing the modification at first, but they switch the camera back to the instructor.
The Butt workout is good too. I also felt it in my sides!
The Thigh workout is awesome! You feel feel it in the insides and outsides of your thighs, but it's a good kind of burn. I've done tapes like Buns of Steel that work the thighs, and some have made me literally cry they hurt so bad. But this does not hurt. It is challenging but not painful.
The total Body Workout is good for a day when you only have a little time. (I like to do Pilates after some cardio, so my muscles are warm, and it's sometimes difficult to fit enough time to do both.) BE warned, there are some pushups, which are hard! Ouch! But there are modifications suggested (wish I had done them and avoided the soreness the next day!)
All, in all, you will not be disappointed in this DVD. Four great sequences, that can be done together or alone. The instructor is fresh and friendly (even though her cueing is not perfect in places, but it doesn't mess up the workout). The music is good too. Also, you can't beat this price! Buy it now!!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I love this tape...special bonus is that there are three sections, each only 10 minutes long, something that I find a real plus. If I want to do all 3 10 minute sections, I get a good (but not too difficult) Pilates workout for my belly, buns and thighs. That's how the sections are divided. If you only have time for one 10 minute section, you can choose which body part you want to concentrate on. Naturally, as in all Pilates the core (the belly and back strengthening core) is worked out all the time so even when you do Buns or Thighs the stomach is always getting strengthened.
There is also a COMPLETE 10 minute workout, focusing on all Pilates moves for the entire body, for those who want a super-quick all-around Pilates workout. REALLY GREAT for time-crunched Moms or working Mom's, whomever doesn't want to spend an entire hour of their day parked in front of a video that never seems to be over.
One down side is that there is no upper body work, so if you're looking to sculpt or strengthen the upper body this is not for you. Being a woman, I'm most interested in my lower body, but for upper body I need to use other tapes.
