Product Description

This DVD with over 20 customized routines is for anyone who considers themselves inflexible. Joseph Pilate developed his method not for people who were already flexible, but rather to help inflexible and/or injured people become more flexible, strong and healthy. Pilates Complete for Inflexible People is the perfect companion for anyone on this wonderful journey to increased health and vitality. A wide range of poses are taught and modified to help both beginning and intermediate students experience the benefits of Pilates. No matter how flexible you are, these customized workouts allow you to progress at your own pace. Includes remedial yoga sections to concentrate on flexibility.

This easy-to-use DVD is designed to adapt and fit into any busy lifestyle. Unlike other videos that may contain one or two workouts, this DVD contains nearly two dozen workouts of varied lengths to get into shape, relieve stress, and become stronger and more flexible.

Maggie Rhoades has a longtime interest in how to increase people s flexibility, strength and health through Pilates. As both a certified Pilates and Yoga instructor, Maggie has developed new and innovative techniques that allows anyone to enjoy the benefits and the beauty of Pilates.

The yoga is at the same level as the pilates, modified for the inflexible.
LRB
With Pilates Complete for Inflexible People at least I can do most of the routines without having to hobble around the next day.
Its just me!
I did not see any movements that seemed to be modified towards increasing flexibility.

I am over 50 and about as flexible as a cast iron skillet. I purchased this based on the reviews and am extremely happy that I did. It is excellent.

The DVD is interactive, which means you can choose what you want to do depending on how much time you have - 20 minutes, 30 minutes or an hour. Maggie Rhodes has put together different sequences of exercises and modifies them enough that even us older folks can tackle most of them. In addition, you get Pilates and Yoga at the same time.

Most Yoga and Pilates tapes are geared towards the 20 somethings and most of the ones that I have purchased either end up at my daughter's house or in the trash. This is not to say that they are bad but I am just not as limber as I used to be. With Pilates Complete for Inflexible People at least I can do most of the routines without having to hobble around the next day.

I haven't even done the whole DVD but I have done enough to know that I am ordering another copy.

Until I see a DVD entitled, "Pilates for Fat, Old, Stiff People", I will just do this one.

I had always wanted to try Pilates, but was intimidated by the thought of actually trying some of the exercises that I've seen people doing. I hurt my left knee 3 years ago and have a hard time walking and sitting for any length of time. Well, I had a hard time. I have been using this dvd for 2 months now, and can do all the beginner's exercises, even the ones I thought I couldn't do. I was pleasantly surprised at the enjoyment and sense of well-being that I get from the program. The instructor is laid back, pleasant, and offers helpful hints. You can actually see what she is doing at all times, and she explains things very well.

I am a guy with tight hamstrings and this one in a short period seems that have opened them up. Pilates is not traditionally a "man" thing for me and most guys I know, but this one really is challening and has helped me open my hamstrings, and I never knew Pilates worked the abs so damn much, or at least in this DVD. Many great features most important the variety in workout times from 10 minutes to 60. No complaints here.

I've been to a few Pilates classes and loved the Pilates routine itself but always found it so hard to keep up with the instructor and felt as if I was missing something. I give this DVD a big thumbs up for taking the time to guide you through each exercise and come with with many modifications for us real world folks.

As a personal trainer I highly recommend this DVD for anyone who considers themselves inflexible, or recovery from injury. I've tried it myself as I recent had a hamstring injury and over the years I have added a series of fitness DVDs and his is certaintly one of the best.

This is a great workout. At first I was disappointed because while I was doing the workout it seemed too easy. I thought it couldn't possibly be doing anything because I wasn't even sweating. However the next day my stomach and arm muscles were sore so I guess that means it must be doing something. I recommend this workout for those who hate to work out like I do.

I have suffered from arthritis in my hands and knees for sometime and could never really navigate some of these at home workout videos. In just a short time I've been able to do several of the exercises on the DVD without much pain and enjoy the routines as there are modifications to meet just about every level. Recommended the DVD to a friend of mine and she love it as well.

This DVD was more challenging than I thought, but within a few short weeks I can already see an improvement in my flexibility and overall fitness. Recently someone who had not seen me in a while commented that my body looked different, so I guess that means the programs really work. HAHA :-) Overall I have been impressed with not only the level of difficulty but also the variety of content and workouts available. I easily recommend this DVD.
