10 Minute Solutions Pilates Perfect Body is pilates training for more advanced users rather than beginners. Ideally you would need to have some basic knowledge about pilates and breathing during exercising before acquiring the DVD. The pace is faster in comparison to pilates at the gym since 10-minute workouts are targeted at those with limited time. The short sessions are easy to fit in available time. Although exercises are easy to follow some of the beginners may find them challenging.
The instructions are given in a clear way with good demonstration of what you should be achieving. It’s worth watching the section before you try to do the exercise for the first time. The DVD is fast paced so that you don’t get bored repeating the workouts but it means you take a little longer to be able to learn the moves and keep up.
There are 5 sections on the DVD focusing on: arms, tummy, bum and thighs, perfect silhouette and stretch. You can pick and mix workouts depending on what you want to focus on and how much time you have. The routines are fun, and the music is upbeat and keeps you engaged. The instructor is also motivating enough to keep you going.
The downside of this DVD is that warm up and cool down are not included in the routines which are essential to any activity. Also those who expect to get toned after ten minutes of exercising can left disappointed. It is rather a no-nonsense attitude that improves your level of fitness in a few weeks.
The bottom line: if the purse are a little too tight for a gym membership and there’s not enough time in the day for exercising then this DVD is an easy way to work in some fitness to your daily routine.
