Editorial Reviews

Awarded Top Workout DVD of 2006 by Natural Health Magazine, this Weight Loss Pilates program is a great way to slim down and develop a long, lean, graceful body. Fitness expert Ellen Barrett chose the best of the best out of three types of Pilates – standing, side-lying and mat Pilates – to create three different 10-minute routines. Each routine was developed using a dynamic, flowing technique which eliminates all the repositioning that takes up so much time in other Pilates workouts – so you’ll get maximum results in minimum time! The Pick Your Level System Makes Working Out As Easy As 1-2-3. Here’s how: Just Push Play—there’s no programming required. Within the workout, three instructors each show the moves modified for a specific level: 1, 2 or 3. You simply follow along and do each move at the level that feels right for you. Remember, this is your workout – you don’t have to stick with one level throughout the entire routine. You may prefer to stick mostly with Level 1, but choose a few Level 2 or 3 moves occasionally. You can customize the workout as you progress or as your energy level varies from day to day. Whatever level you choose, know that Ellen specifically designed this program so that all of the levels are really effective.

I own many Pilates DVDs due to the fact that once I have peaked at a certain level, in order to progress, I need to purchase a new DVD. Not the case with Pick Your Level Weight Loss Pilates! This is the best Pilates video by far that has been developed! What a creative approach to fitness, offering the purchaser three levels of Pilates in one single DVD. I love the idea of having each level color coded which makes it easy to follow, and the fact that you can interchange the levels with each routine you do. It's like going to a new class each time you turn it on!! And as usual, each step is explained completely by Ellen, with smooth transitions and no confusion as to what's coming next. I would highly recommend this DVD to anyone looking for something new and challenging, and of course fun!

This is the perfect video if you want something to 'grow with you'. Most Pilates videos have one person doing alternate on a few moves, but not many.

If it's not emphasized enough, it's important to keep your body comfortable and not strain it--tighten your 'core'. That's more important than getting all the moves just like the video. As an overweight person, I always find the roll forward Pilates moves and the pushups to be difficult. And most videos have them. This one does, too. SO I have to alter those exercises on every video. Even below Level 1. (One time I tried to roll forward and it was at an angle and I strained my shoulder!)

On the other hand, there were moves that I could upgrade easily to Level 2. And some that Level 1 was just right and was glad to have examples I could aspire to as I get stronger.

The movements were smooth and slow, but not all of them were whole-body intense, so this really isn't an aerobic pilates. However, I love how she transitioned between each move so that you don't get the stop. start. feeling you get with other Pilates videos.

She is a great leader, speaking as she moves and not fussing about describing every breath. As she takes time setting up each level in the floor segments, I just went ahead and started, keeping the flow going and getting more work in.

One more plus. The video just requires you press play then it starts immediately. The 3 segments follow each other with no long breaks. None of the wait to start. Press PLay. Choose a segment. get up. Choose another segment. You know what I'm talking about!

If you are already advanced in Pilates then this video won't challenge you enough, but it's great to help you step up the ladder as you get stronger and more practiced.

While very short, these routines can be done for any level, whether you are only a beginner or advanced. Each routine is shown at three different levels so everyone can benefit from it. Ellen is a good instructor and she's down to earth and it makes it easy to follow. The other exercisers in the routines are visible for most of the time so it makes it easy to choose your positions. All up, it's about 35-40 minutes and it's short, but effective. You will feel like you've done yourself some good which is the whole point, and if done enough, you'll see results soon. I just got this the other day, so I've done it only once, but I can tell that if I keep it up, I'm going to be very happy I bought this.

The concept behind "Pick Your Level: Weight Loss Pilates" is that you can customize your workout by choosing the level which best suits your needs for each and every exercise. This is done through the use of three different exercisers displaying three different levels of difficulty. Instructor Ellen Barrett always does Level 2, the intermediate version, while her two background exercisers show the beginning (Level 1) and more advanced (Level 3) versions.

The workout itself is broken down into three 10-minute segments: Standing Pilates, Side-Lying Pilates, and Pilates Matwork. The standing work is similar to several of Ellen's previous videos (eg, Crunch Burn & Firm Pilates) in that you are doing moves such as plies, leg lifts, standing leg circles, etc. This segment focused mainly on legwork, although the Level 3 modifier added arms movements to increase the intensity. Still, this section felt like light toning at best, and it certain lacked the cardio benefit to produce the "weight loss" promised in the title. The side lying moves are a bit more intense, beginning with a side plank. Some of the exercises here were similar to the Winsor Buns and Thighs video, and I could feel them in my glutes/outer hip. Again, Ellen does the middle level while the two background exercisers show modifications. Unlike in the standing section, however, each new move does not begin until Ellen explains all three levels, which makes for a lot of unnecessary downtime. In the final segment, Pilates matwork, Ellen has her Level 3 modifier add a few twists to traditional Pilates moves, making them more challenging. However, I found this to be a fairly easy matwork sequence which failed to incorporate any of the classic Pilates intermediate and advanced moves.

This is a good workout that will make you feel like you are shaping your body. However, I don't think that there is enough of a cardio factor to really help with weight loss. I do love being able to customize the level at which I do workouts. Every move starts with the level 1, then are modified to levels 2 and 3. Then, a full set is done at whatever level you choose. It's nice that you don't have to stick with the same level for the whole workout (which is about 35 minutes). You can work on your weakest areas at level 1, then easily switch to level 2. I really like the instructor. She's not too peppy or ridiculously ripped or skinny (you feel like you could actually look like her without starving yourself or having just good genetics). A good overall toning workout.
