Introduction to Pilates DVD For the True Beginner

If it's good enough for Pippa...

Pippa Middleton revealed a while back that the secret to her being in such good shape is weekly Pilates sessions. Miss Middleton stated that the exercise has helped her to improve her core strength and posture, which in turn elongates the frame and helped her keep a natural poise on the day of the wedding. Pippa says that "'As someone who is always ‘on the go’, Pilates has been a wonderful escape from my busy lifestyle in London...'Whether it’s 7am in the morning or 7pm at night I always leave feeling calm, refreshed and invigorated." 

For those of us without the budget, or just wanting to give Pilates a go before we hit the gym, a DVD for beginners is probably a good way to dip a toe in the water!
  • 24 key Aero Pilates exercises
  • Number of exercises: 24
  • Running Time: 28:31 minutes

The only downside to this DVD that I can see is that a lot of the workout is done using Pilates machines, which I don't have, but there is a whole section of simple warm ups etc that you can do without any machines.
 I'd give this DVD a 8/10. Buy yours now from www.qvcuk.com

Introduction to Pilates DVD For the True Beginner. An introduction to the world of Aero Pilates - a Pilates reformer exercise combined with low impact cardiovascular exercise. Get started safely with twenty-four key Aero Pilates exercises.

This DVD is brilliant, unlike some Beginners DVDs, this one truly is for a beginner (I even managed to follow what was going on!!!). So, instead of being scared off by not being able to do any of the exercises I feel more positive that this is a level of pilates that I can safely and enjoyably participate in.
