About the Actor

Lisa Hubbard is a certified Pilates instructor with over a decade of experience. She is the founder of Rhythm Pilates™ and teaches from her private studio in California as well as traveling the globe to lead Teacher Training Certification programs as a faculty member for the world-renowned BASI Pilates®. An active member of the Pilates community, Lisa has been featured in textbooks, educational literature and leading periodicals like Pilates Style Magazine. With a diverse clientele, Lisa enjoys teaching students of all levels from professional athletes to those trying Pilates for the very first time.

Product Description

Filmed in a beautiful garden overlooking the Pacific Ocean, these two total body programs use the mini ball to add additional resistance to exercises, activate underused muscle groups, and emulate movements performed on the Pilates apparatus used in private studio sessions.

The efficient 20-minute workout provides a complete and effective solution that fits any schedule. The powerful 30-minute workout goes even deeper into toning muscle and redefining your shape. Both focus on core strength, flexibility, flattening the abs, narrowing the waist, toning the arms and legs, sculpting the glutes, and creating a strong, healthy back. With regular practice, these programs will strengthen and streamline your entire body, yielding a whole new feeling of vitality. The mini ball will not only change-up your Pilates workout in a refreshing way, it will also produce faster and more dramatic results.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Gem of a Workout October 9, 2011
By livvie
I am a very picky person when it comes to working out. I only like a few pilates instructors and I just stick with them. I discovered Lisa Hubbard however, watched a few clips, and decided I wanted to try this instructor + this workout. A very good decision by me because I love Lisa's instructional style and this workout.

One thing I love about element is that it takes you outside. You are working in a beautiful garden, and then out comes Lisa to explain what we're about to do. [this opening sequence is skippable if you do this workout a lot]. You have a choice between 20 minutes and a 30 minute practice - unfortuntatly, there is no 'play-all' practice.

The 20 minute practice has most of my favourite workouts, the hundred, the scissors, the helicoptor, and by incorporating the ball, you can actually get into a lot of deeper moves. I love it when mermaid is done as a workout, not a stretch and Lisa uses it here as well.

The 30 minute practice is a bit more challenging, including the rollover (something I mastered earlier this year), and more toning elements for the lower body, including clams and single leg pulses. The saw is also included.

The ball is not something just "tossed" in to market a gadget, Lisa expertly uses it to mimic the reformer and the barrel. I had to put it aside sometimes because I was personally uncomfortable (I am still slightly overweight, even losing a considerable amount of weight).

Lisa talks a lot, but not prattle, just constantly reminding you what you are working, how to adjust, how to breathe (CRITICAL in pilates practices!) and why you are working with the ball. It kept me focused, and reminded me of a live class.

This is a great workout video for people who enjoy Pilates and yoga. At first the video does not seem difficult, but the further you get into it, the more you can feel the workout. . It's really helping me tone my saggy "muffin-top" waist area, while giving me the total stretching and strengthening I need. The visual demonstrations are very clear, and the detailed verbal instructions give me all the coaching I need to work on improving my Pilates technique.

Lisa Hubbard pairs strength training with flexibility work. She has you contract the muscles and then relieves the tension with a looooooooong stretch immediately afterwards. This is far superior to the neck-crunching Pilates workouts and the easier yoga workouts that don't seem to do enough strength work and it feels GREAT as you do it. The Pink ball has worked wonders on my back pain :)

It's a very mellow and relaxed workout that incorporates breath, well-paced and you still work up a sweat!
You feel great afterwards - looser, leaner, stronger, improved posture - that's enough incentive to do it a few times a week!
I enjoy it! I recommend this video to anyone who wants to start exercising and strengthen their core.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for beginners! January 2, 2012
I absolutely love this work out dvd! I am a beginner to pilates and her instruction is so easy to follow that I felt like I knew what I was doing within the first few times of using the dvd. Not only is it an amazing work out, it comes with a ball that she uses for EVERY move so you don't feel like the ball was a waste. I also love how she is using the exact same ball in the dvd.

Another great thing about it is it has 2 different sessions, a 20 minute and a 30 minute session. The first time I did it I was SHOCKED at how fast I went through the 20 minute so I went ahead and did the 30 minute as well!

The best part though, is that I started to see results after A WEEK of doing it! (granted, it wasn't a huge difference, but I could tell my body was changing) I also love that it's low impact so I don't get fatigued after doing it, but I can tell I've worked out. All in all, its easy to follow and will yield results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Pilates Workout October 23, 2011
Lisa has been a true inspiration for us Pilates devotees. Most of us know her from her close colaboration with Rael Isacowitz and thereby her appearence in the BASI Pilates books and DVDs. With her Rhythm Pilates approach she has started to leave her own foot prints in the Pilates world. With the DVD Total Body Pilates with mini ball - Strengthen. streamline & redefine using the mini ball to sculpt a lean physique, she continues this path. This DVD features 2 workouts, one 20 minutes and one 30 minutes. Both are filmed in a beautifull garden beside a swimming-pool. Lisa shows the entire sequence as a continuous flow, while the cueing is done out of the off (also Lisa). By not having to talk while she practices Lisa shows how to do the movement sequences in a good flow with the right mind set. With this you get a feeling how one should practice when you have internalized the exercises and are able to do it without the DVD.
Lisa's verbal cueing during the exercises is first class and allows you to do the exercises even without looking at the TV (clearly you would need to have practiced before you can go to audio only).
The DVD comes in a box which includes a mini ball which you easily blow up with the included straw. The ball is pink (for me as a male maybe a bit funny) and very sturdy.
Lisa uses the mini ball throughout the entire workouts and mostly modifies Pilates mat exercises in a nice way. The ball offers a wider range of motion or an additional challenge for some of the classic exercises. All the ball modifications are done with purpose and a clear benefit in comparison to how you would do it without the ball.
During the workouts Lisa continuously offers modifications for the less advanced Pilates fans. But don't fool yourself: Even if you are advanced this DVD will challenge you and give you a new muscle ache. Well done, Lisa!
