5.0 out of 5 stars Pilates Challenge - Intermediate to Advanced February 2, 2007
Jennifer Kries is definitely the Pilates goddess of the workout world. Not only does she create challenging Pilates workouts, she gives perfect instruction and teaches you to respect your body in a new way. This is her New Method style workout. It is a combination of Pilates, Weight Training, Dance and Yoga.

Workout 1 - Core Conditioning - Classic Pilates routine and Yoga moves. You will recognize all the basic Pilates moves with the roll-ups and modified roll-ups. Jennifer gives a lot of advice on modifying, but I just have to say that I have my own secret ways for getting from the flat-on-back position to the bending over one's legs position. I'm not sure she would approve. While Jennifer shows each position, she gives even more "breathing" instructions. I love "rolling like a ball" and the challenge of making each exercise so precise.

Workout 2 - Metabolic Booster - Light weight training segment to increase cardiovascular strength. I love this almost "dance-style" workout. Jennifer is working out with four workout partners/instructors.

The music is motivational, the colors are inspirational and the setting is so classic. You flow through the stretches like a dancer and then learn to get fancy with the weights. You are moving fairly fast so it is advisable to really learn the moves before increasing your speed. I found that once I was distracted by anything, I had to refocus, rewind and begin again.

This is the most challenging weight workout I've ever done. Not only does this push you to the limit of your coordination, you are also moving in a very creative way. I love this section because it will be one I will be perfecting for months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best November 28, 2006
By Lulu

This is my favorite tape and I go back to it again and again. The three separate workouts allow you to divvie them up to different days, if desired. Each section is about twenty minutes: pilates mat workout that strengthens the core and targets the abs; an aerobic workout done with light weights for resistance and building muscle; and a relaxation stretch. Jennifer Kries is a terrific instructor. She explains while doing, so your not standing around killing time between exercises, and she talks just enough, not too much, and in a pleasant, non-condescending or patronizing way, and without ridiculous over-enthusiasm. In other words: perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great September 30, 2007
By DD
This is a very good exercise DVD. It has three sections. I do one section of it that's half an hour long every other day and I'm still working to getting it right. You need very light weights (3 lbs?) be barefoot and you will be on the floor for part of it so get your mat ready. It's graceful and not flashy but way more precise and difficult than it looks. You can't take your eyes off the screen and it takes a while to get the moves of the legs and arms together, so I've been focusing on the legs (I'm kind of a spaz with dance moves). She targets many body parts at a time and uses sweeping motions. I am dripping sweat by the end and feel sore in lots of places!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best one to buy May 18, 2009
By Down

I really didn't like this workout routine. The core workout hardly makes me break a sweat and I'm totally out of shape. The metabolic booster workout is way too complex and I feel like I miss half of the benefits from the workout because I'm too busy trying to do the moves right. Overall, this is my least favorite video from Jennifer Kries.

4.0 out of 5 stars two-thirds of perfection December 23, 2008
Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed other workouts by Jennifer Kries for the past couple of years. I absolutely love the core conditioning and AM/PM segments of this program. She holds the stetches longer, gives better directions on posture and focuses more on breathing than in the other programs I have. I already loved what I had and ordered this for variety, and I have been very happy with my purchase.
The matabolic booster was a nightmare for my friend and I when we tried it. We sat sat and watched it then tried it ourselves. Unless you are already coordinated and smooth, this segment is not helpful. I can't walk and chew gum at the same time, so swinging weights and trying to combine 3 or 4 other movements at the same time only led to big bruises and frustration. Forturnately, we tried this when the 2-year old was out of the house.
This program is totally worth the purchase price, but I am going to have to look elsewhere for a more aerobic workout.

I absolutely love Jennifer Kries Pilates. She is one of the best on the market. Her videos are a little older, but well worth it. She knows her stuff. Her yoga videos are great too.
