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.

My only critique is that I wish the ball was a little biggger. The ball used on the DVD is bigger than the one you actually get -- you get the mini size and Ms. Hubbard has the small size. Still, the workout is effective with the mini ball.
I would highly recommend this DVD to beginners and those, like me, that can't afford to be part of a pilates gym, but want the workout.
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.

The DVD guides this 'workout' so gently, it's more a FUN-OUT, than a workout!Read more
