Anything that can build core strength and flexibility will help in riding, and I feel stronger through using these exercises. There are a few things in the DVD that I hope the author will change in a revised edition, however. In the Basic Pilates workout, it would be nice if she had actually counted out the Hundreds exercise rather than saying, "When you get to 100, stop." It's annoying to have to stop the DVD to finish the Hundreds. In the same segment on the leg circles, there is instruction to circle the right leg but not the left. If you want to finish the exercise properly, you need to get up, pause the DVD, finish the exercise, get up again, and restart the DVD. This is annoying.
These are the only two criticisms I have. I like the inclusion of basic exercises like the Hundreds, but at the same time there are a few that are challenging like Roll Like a Ball. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to get in shape to ride better.
The DVD is nicely done. It's clear, concise and easy on the eye. It takes you from basic moves to advanced ones. You choose which section to focus on.
I highly recommend this DVD. You won't be disappointed.
