  • The roll-ups put a lot of strain on the lower back and can possibly lead to injury. - 4/28/2015 10:45:03 AM

  • I'm a 52 year that has never Pilates as well but as said I too love this video and it is very doable for a beginner. Thanks Sparkpeople - 2/14/2015 7:57:53 PM
  • Never did pilates and at 52 and 20 lbs overwieght it was doable. I felt good and want to continue at this level with the idea that I can advance to more difficult routines. This was a great beginners video, it really motivated me to use this twice a day - 1/11/2015 10:36:26 PM
  • I'm getting back into my pilates/yoga workouts they help me with my fibromyalgia a great deal. It takes a bit like any exercise to see the benefits but you will feel them. This was quite good and gentle on the joints. - 11/8/2014 3:54:07 PM
  • Loved this video!! - 10/6/2014 6:15:33 PM
  • I had no issues playing the video and it does seem great for beginning fitness levels, but I don't think pilates is for me. I don't feel any challenge like with my cardio or traditional strength work outs. All these do is make me overthink breathing... - 9/30/2014 9:59:54 AM
