    5-0 out of 5 stars electra-fying Genius!
    These workout videos have changed my life!

    I got them for my wifey and now she is dedicated to
    working out with them, and I am dedicated to watching her
    work out with them!

    All of this physical conditioning has really helped our
    relationship, and we have put a couple of our other amazon
    aquisitions to good use as well, namely the dvds "GODDESS WORSHIP"
    and "NEW SEX NOW."

    1-0 out of 5 stars NOT WORTH IT
    I bought the bloody dvd set and it is the worst thing I have ever bought.It gives no credence wha has been promoted about it.It has no substance and completely a waste of time.I would rather work one the old Cindy Crawford Videos compared to this.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Awsome
    I just received my DVD yesterday and I'm about to buy discs 1 & 2 today! The lap dance was a little strange (I wasn't prepared with the right chair!) but it is a good warm up for the next disc. The Hip-Hop workout was awesome! I definitely worked up a sweat and I am pretty sore today. Carmen makes it look so easy to be sexy while doing this, but I did not exude the same confidence and found myself laughing at my own attempts to look sexy! It was really fun, though, and she takes the time to carefully explain each step. This makes it easy for the non-dancer types such as myself! After I got the steps down (I had to replay the disc several times!), I would rewind just until the last part which is when you go through the whole routine with the music. This is when I really started to get pumped up! I think this is a great workout program, and once I get the steps down well-enough, I think I may be able to feel more sexy while doing them!

    5-0 out of 5 stars So Much Fun!!!
    Before I tried this series, I was convinced that Carmen Electra was just another mindless pretty face.Now, however, I really respect her for her talent at leading a clear workout that otherwise might be frustrating. Although these dvds don't quite provide a thorough workout and require a bit of coordination (I'm far from a dancer), I use them on the light days that I alternate with my heavier cardio.The workouts are light and fun, and Carmen's demeanor and instruction emphasize that the workouts are meant to be relaxed. I felt slightlly idiotic starting out, but I discovered that after a few workouts I began to feel sexier as I was dancing.These dvds are also GREAT if you want to have a few girlfriends over for a "learn to dance for your boyfriend" party!

    1-0 out of 5 stars not worth the money
    I have all 5 of these "workout" DVDs let me tell you it is not worth it at all the only one worth buying is fit to strip. Its a workout. all of the DVDs could have fit onto one DVD they are lioke 15 min each. and she really doesn't teach you to strip. I couldnt wait to learn to lapdance and trust me this is not worth it ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Documenting The Real Thing
    This DVD is an unapologetic documentary of Joseph Pilates' original mat workout series with superb demonstration of exercises, and expert verbal instruction by Bob Liekens. The workouts move quickly without stopping so that your heart gets pumping and your muscles start working. This is precisely the point: The Pilates method is supposed to be vigorous as you gain familiarity with the exercises. Learning Pilates is sort of like learning a language. You start slowly at first then you pick up the pace then interact with your new 'movement vocabulary.'

    If you want a slower workout, the "modified basic" routine on this DVD gives you the basics. I recommend this video without reservation, yet you should always try to take Pilates lessons from a certified instructor, so you can glean the full benefits from the method, from this DVD, or from any other DVD.

    Classical Pilates has the best example of Pilates done well. This DVD shows the full range of exercise levels.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A 10 Star Video!
    I have been working out in the Pilates method for several years and take private lessons only once in a while. I live far from certified instructors who have extensive training, so I have to rely on mat classes and video instruction. When I heard about this Classical Pilates video, the recommendation seemed too good to be true, but I bought it anyway. This video is so pleasurable to watch because the demonstrators are precise, focused, dynamic, and fluid. This video is also thorough enough to be considered as a 'visual encyclopedia.' I have never seen another video that exhibits every level! Other Pilates videos charge about the same price, however, they only supply a single workout. The point is that I can grow with this video, and learn from Bob Liekens' insightful instruction, as if I were taking lessons in a New York City studio. Another thing I'm very satisfied with is that I actually get a workout! Many other videos show so many flashy camera angles, and explain the movements in so much detail, that I don't sweat. Classical Pilates claims to preserve the original Pilates method in their video. Since I do not know very much about the Pilates method, I can't adequately comment on this. But I have heard that Joseph Pilates was a tough guy and all around athlete who put his clients "through their paces," and he would encourage people to workout intelligently with robust energy. From watching other students and instructors practice the Pilates method, I can see that Classical Pilates technique is flawless, so I am inclined to believe that Classical Pilates keeps the true flame of Joseph Pilates' tradition burning brightly for the rest of us. I am very impressed

    4-0 out of 5 stars Hurts so Good
    This DVD is a little dry, nothing fancy here, but it is a great - no, excellent - Pilates workout.

    The buildup from Beginner to Advanced is appropriate (I did the Ana Caban (Giaim) beginning and intermediate Pilates DVDs to compare) -- but,WARNING you should probably have taken a beginners Pilates class or done at least one other Beginner Pilates DVD several times before diving into this one. The other reviews are correct, this is a technical DVD with little review of the basics of Pilates, so to start with this one would have been confusing and probably very frustrating.

    The "Super Advanced" section provides a worthwhile goal, when I am feeling uninspired I look at/attempt those excercises.

    If you can do the Advanced workout all the way through with correct pace, breathing, and form I would say you would be in very (very) admirable shape.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Conditioning & Healing
    In addition to physical therapy, Pilates lessons and this video helped me recover from a back injury that stopped me in my tracks. Sometimes I lift heavy boxes as part of my job. One day I wasn't paying close attention. All of a sudden I felt a snap in my lower back. I could hardly stand upright; it hurt to stand up, sit down, even roll over in bed when I was sleeping. I couldn't exercise for several weeks.

    Anyway, my PT said I should take Pilates. I was willing to try anything to help my aching back. This video starts off slowly, which was really important. After practicing the pre-basic workout for several weeks, I went on to the full basic workout. This was invigorating and it moves quickly. Now I'm practicing intermediate.

    All in all, this video has helped me fully recover. I recommend this product to my friends and work associates. Thank you for making this video!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Like The Style
    The guiding ideas of this program seem to be: It's a workout. Do it well. Look good!

    I play tennis, ski, and surf. I just enjoy being physically active, and I like to practice sports that involve discipline and skill. The same applies to body conditioning. Pilates is not easy. It demands concentration, strength, and creativity to do it well. I appreciate this DVD isn't a watered-down version of Pilates that underestimates my ability. So I'm learning, having fun, and staying in good shape. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Quick and Dirty way to learn salsa!
    The sexy Quick and Dirty Guide is a great DVD that after learning a few steps through the innovative different angles, I feel like I am ready to hit the dance floor!

    Gigi, the instructor, is clear and easy to follow. The 26 lessons are easy and as they progress, challenging enough for beginners like me. Moreover, the set has a classy and old world feel that makes me think of Cuba, as well as the music.

    I never thought that learning to dance salsa could be this fun and easy. I highly recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars At Last: Real Three Angle DVD!
    As founder and developer of the All-Music Guide (allmusic.com) and the All-Movie Guide (allmovie.com), I have had the opportunity to review a great deal of music and film. I have been following dance music and videos for years, and Latin music in particular. And that is what moves me to write something about this amazing dance DVD.

    Being a little bit of a DVD fanatic, I just have to say: FINALLY we have a high-quality DVD with true multi-angle shots! Even if I didn't want to dance to salsa music, I would keep this DVD just to show off my player. This entire DVD, from start to finish, is seamlessly viewable from three angles, which I choose at any time at the touch of a button, viewing everything from the back, the front, and from above. Why have we not seen the likes of this before?

    And what a great way to learn to dance! This is the best dance video I have yet to see. The three angles give me a 360-degree view of what is going on. If I can't quite get the steps from one angle, I just look at it from another angle and there there they are. This is the way all dance videos should work.

    The 26 lessons (I am at lesson 7) are clear and easy to follow. The steps are elegant and each lesson is broken out, so I can follow them, taking me from the very beginning (which is where I am at) to quite complex maneuvers. Did I mention that I can see them from any angle I choose? And the music is state-of-the art salsa.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Cuban Miami Salsa style
    This dvd has set a new standard for dance instructional dvd's with the 3 angles you can view of all the moves. You can view the whole dvd from the front, back, above angles or just a move.
    You can rewind a move & watch it from a different angle.
    I also like the memory feature that you can rewind as much of a chapter as you like.
    The instruction is from the absolute beginners level through to the most common Miami Cuban Salsa moves.
    This is a very enjoyable video to watch.
    This has got to be the must buy Salsa instructional video for 2004.
    Well worth buying.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Quick & Dirty Guide to Salsa - Part 1, Beginners
    This is the coolest! I was going to Miami & I've never salsa danced before & this taught me some hot moves.

    Being able to change the angle I could really see how the dancers moved their feet...among other things. I can actually dance now.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quick and elegant
    For me the best thing about this DVD is it teaches you how to dance salsa in the same way most of the people do. It starts with basic steps and quickly moves to combinations that look great. It's quick but you don't feel that they run over details. You can change the camera and see how things look from a diferent perspective. 'Quick' but I wouldn't say 'dirty', salsa it's also 'elegance' and it's shown in this DVD. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars If you have no time or are a beginner, buy this
    8 minute arms are fast and easy, and you can do it without weights or with weights (or soup cans if you don't have weights). 8 minute legs are easy, and you use your chair or couch, perfect for the beginner. 8 minute abs are a bit difficult, definetly work your way into those. 8 minute buns are not for the weak kneed, you definitly need an exercise mat. All the workouts are so fast, it doesn't even feel like your working out.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I think I like it...
    When I looked at the title, I thought - what the hey - only 8 minutes. I can do that.

    I rec'd it from AMZN a couple days ago and brought it home, popped it in the DVD player and away I went. So far so good.

    The workouts are fairly precise, SHORT and short. Short is good for those of us who don't care to work out except for a nice walk outdoors.

    The lead guy is tolerable - he's built which makes me have the illusion that if I do these workouts 8 min. each day I'll become buff :) His outfit often takes attention away from the video though....it's white w/ black stripes and suspenders - straight out of the 80's. The music? Blechhhh. Corny corny corny. BUT - you're not getting this for the music - you're getting this because it's ONLY 8 minutes a day, which if I can handle it? Anyone can :)

    The "legs" workout is alright - I've only done it once so far. The "buns" workout rocks. Really felt the results, especially the next day. The "arms" workout is just OK without weights, but adding even 2 or 5 pounds to each arm really makes a big difference.

    One of the best things about this is that it's short but it also has a constant countdown in the corner of the screen. It keeps track of how many seconds you have for the current exercise and how many minutes total you have left for your workout. I really like that.

    I plan on alternating "buns" and "legs" every other morning and doing "arms" each day regardless.

    All in all I would recommend this DVD set. I also ordered the Winsor pilates DVD and will enjoy seeing the difference in presentation and results. BUY this - certainly doing 8 minutes a day is much better than doing nothing at all. If not for your physique, for your self esteem :)

    5-0 out of 5 stars 8 Minute Workouts Review
    Terrific! These are virtually perfect. Who doesn't have just 8 minutes? If I don't have time to workout I can at least find 8 minutes to do one of these workouts.

    Each of the two DVDs includes bonus workouts that range from 10 - 20 minutes long. So if you don't have time to do a full workout, you can do a 10 minute sample and one of the 8 minute workouts. This is a great addition to the DVDs.

    I highly recommend these. The 8 minute buns and abs really take some time to build up to their level, but since the exercises are not timed to the background music you can work at your own speed! And they have minute and second countdowns in the lower corner of the screen so you can take a 5 or 10 second break until the next set of exercises starts! These are AWESOME.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love this DVD
    I have tried many other workouts but this one gave me the best results in a shorter amount of time. Each workout is 8 minutes long so it is easy to fit into your busy day. I have had knee surgeries on both knees and cannot do most of the excerise programs on the market but with the 8 minutes workouts I have lost one inch off my waist, legs and buns in 6 weeks. This DVD is excellent!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just What I was Looking For!!!!
    on the days that i go running i like to come back and do a quick toning exercise... just so i feel like i covered all the bases. i was bored with doing the normal crunches and am not familiar enough with free weights to put together my own routine. these videos are perfect.. eight minutes is a perfect amount of time and it's nice to have some instruction. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars What would we do without Sheri?
    Not only did we enjoy this DVD for
    it's sincere and human approach by
    a warm and dedicated instructor, Sheri
    answered all, and I mean all of our
    questions and concerns regarding
    what was ultimately a life changing
    experience. Her knowledge, cheerful communication
    style and innate charisma allowed us to watch
    with ease and clarity. Whether you have had
    private instuction already, or are using this
    DVD as your main instructional source, you
    will be
    thrilled with what you come away with. We know that
    this video prepared us both physicallly and emotionally
    in order to participate and witness the gift of
    creating life. It doesn't get better than that!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
    I ordered this video because we are living overseas and couldn't find a live class in English. I'm giving it 2 stars because it's better than nothing, but I wouldn't recommend it otherwise. The production quality is quite low - the volume fluctuates and there are are very few visuals. It's just a film of the instructor talking to about five couples on a bare stage. Both my husband and I found the instructor annoying, especially her whiny impressions of women in labor. Putting together a DVD class is a great idea but could have been done much better, especially considering the price.

    3-0 out of 5 stars good basic info
    This dvd provides good basic information if you cannot attend childbirth classes from a hospital. But the instructor is annoying, and the person with the camera is too. It was worth the annoyances for me, though... cheaper and far more flexible than the hospital classes.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I was hooked from the first minute!
    Sheri has a fantastic way of mixing humour with an incredible amount of knowledge.She is not wasting your time.Every moment is filled with important information so sometimes I had to pause and take a breath...
    I could feel myself starting to relax and feel confidence replace my questions and worries.
    This video is everything you need to understand it all very clearly!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Expectations Delivers!
    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this DVD! We watched this DVD a couple of weeks before our delivery and are so glad that we did. These classes had us so well prepared that when things in the delivery room didn't go exactly according to plan,we understood what was happening and knew how to deal with it. The tools Sheri Bayles gave us allowed us to have the birth experience everyone hopes for! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars not too demanding, but effective
    I've got about half a dozen yoga DVDs and I find that this is the one I use the most often because it is not physically demanding, but is really effective.

    The Rodney Yee program (AM) is shorter and focuses mainly on stretching out the back; I find it really helps when I've got any kind of lower back problem or just at stretching me out and getting me ready for the day.

    The Patricia Walden program (PM) is slightly longer and focuses more on standing poses; it also has a very good deep relaxation at the end.

    The only disadvantage to these Gaim DVDs is that they are programmed so that you have to play a longish commercial for all of their other products (what exacly is "organic clothing" anyway?) before you can start your workout. If you use the DVD regularly, the commercial gets really annoying after you've seen it about 20 times.

    But all in all, this is a very useful DVD. It's accessible for beginners but also useful for people who've been doing yoga for a while but are looking for a short, focused, effective workout.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love this DVD - new yoga enthusiast
    I never understood the appeal of yoga before. I bought this DVD, and now I see why people love yoga so much. I had tried another yoga tape and other exercise tapes before, but most were not nearly as good as this one. I am now hooked. There are two 20 minute yoga segments. The first is called "AM Yoga" with Rodney Yee, and the second segment, called "PM Yoga", is with Patricia Walden. Both segments were terrific, but I especially enjoyed the "AM" segment with Rodney Yee. I found that during his section I could listen to Yee peacefully talk me through the poses without being glued to the tv screen. It allowed me to really enjoy the DVD more. When I was finished with his 20 minute segment, I felt so relaxed - it was surprising...I am looking now for other Yee DVD's. On the second segment, it wasn't as easy to follow the instructor. I imagine it would be easier to follow after a week of sessions to get used to it. Still, this is an excellent DVD for anyone curious about the appeal of yoga and looking for an excellent intro. You won't be doing any moves that are too advanced or aerobic in this DVD, but it is extremely relaxing. Also, the 20 minute segments are great for busy people who don't have endless amounts of time to fit in exercise. This is a great investment overall.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Falls Short, just like the length
    I just bought this DVD along with another Yoga DVD. This one is more of a meditation and relaxation video than a workout video. Most people say the segments are each 20 minutes long, but that's only if you do all of the meditation. The workouts are actually 13 minutes for the AM and 18 minutes for the PM. The other video I purchased has so much more to offer with more than one routine and much more length. If you don't want to spend a lot of time working out, press stop when you're ready. This video is over before you know it. In addition, the PM section wakes you up more than the AM, so I'd reverse the order when using. Definitely go for a Bryan Kest video.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simple and relaxing...
    Works for both my small boy and myself. Relaxing, easy to follow, and not too long.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love this DVD!!
    I do the PM part of this DVD each morning and can't believe the difference it makes in my body after just 25 minutes of yoga. This DVD is perfect for those who are not very flexible (me included). What I can't figure out is why the woman in the PM part is in the middle of a sandstorm while Rodney Yee (AM part) is in an idyllic beach setting! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars very good dvd
    I liked this DVD a lot. There are three levels of ab workouts, and three levels of full-body circuit workouts as well as a full stretch to be used alone or during cool down period.

    I can't imagine that someone can find this too easy. When it gets too easy, raise the amount of weight you are using. Do the circuit again. Currently, I'm doing all three ab workouts and then immediately start the full-body workout. When I'm done with the full-body workout at intermediate, I do it again at advanced. I choose heavier weight. Furthermore, even the DVD reminds us that the Abs diet DVD is supposed to be a guide. We have to change our workouts fairly often (monthly, some say), and this is a guide. Once one is familiar with these exercises, do some research and choose different exercises that work the correct muscles. Sometimes I workout along with this DVD, but I do a different exercise than they do. But, I like the rhythm and ease of working along with a dvd if I'm doing circuit training. I find it motivating.

    Tom Holland is great. He knows his stuff, he's charming without being too chatty-- a definite problem with many exercise dvds-- and personable, and fully explains what he's doing. He stretches after the reps are completed while explaining every move he is making and how it benefits. I'd really like to see him in some other exercise dvds as well.

    Lastly, the music is motivating without being too intrusive. It adds to the workout without distracting from it. Sound quality is good, camera work is good. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth Purchasing
    Prenatal yoga is worth buying for pregnant women looking for an at-home guide to stretching. The scenery and music are pleasant, and the instruction is easy to follow. It features one women for each trimester, who adjust the yoga exercises accordingly. I do it once a week, in addition to 3 days per week of one-hour cardio exercise/light weight-lifting sessions at the gym. I wish I had the time to do Prenatal Yoga more often; it's hard to find an hour to myself with my 2 1/2 year old son. This video seems to help ease backaches and stiffness associated with pregnancy. I view this yoga video as a convenient but important complement to my multi-faceted exercise rountine.

    3-0 out of 5 stars ok. It depends...
    The usefulness of this tape depends on what you're looking for. If you haven't been exercising a lot before pregnancy, this is likely suitable. You'll certainly get a good amount of toning and relaxing-stretching that will make you feel pretty good.

    Unlike some reviewers,I didn't mind the fact that the tape uses voice-over, but i found the instructor to be a little too "relaxed" for my taste --that is, she doesn't convey enough energy to get me going. I was a regular exerciser before I got pregnant (pilates and running) and so, I found this tape to not really be enough. If you have time to exercise 2 hours a day, you might combine it with a brisk walk or light run to get a more satisfying workout. But, if you're like me, an hour max is all you can spare. Actually, I haven't touched this tape since getting Leisa Hart's "FitMama". The latter includes yoga along with some fun salsa-dance aerobics, as well as kegels and stretching--it just feels like a more complete, efficient workout.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    I started this workout in my second trimester, and I loved it! It helped me to relax and eased some of my aches and pains in my third trimester. It also helped me to not gain as much weight as I might have. I found the breathing practice VERY helpful during my labor, and I give credit to this workout for my short labor and 15 minutes of pushing. It is great for strengthening the muscles you need for labor, and I lost weight very quickly afterward since I was in great shape before. I have several other prenatal yoga tapes, but this is the one I grabbed the most and found to be the better workout.

    4-0 out of 5 stars better than most prenatal DVDs
    I agree with an earlier reviewer who was annoyed at her pronounciation of exhale ("eggsale"), but other than that I rank this far higher than Zen Mama (ug!) or even the seemingly beloved FitMama's yoga portion. This is much more like real yoga classes I've taken, and I think that you DO hold the poses enough to get a workout, for sure. I'm in my 8th month and this is the video I reach for when my back or ribs are sore. I always feel better afterward, and usually sleep better too.

    1-0 out of 5 stars poor workout, terrible audio
    the moves in this wokrout are too short to be effective, whether you are prego ro not....Shiva seems to be a nice lady, but she teaches with voiveovers and that annoys you so much. She is not confident and doesn't help you relax before, during, or after the workout. This is so average it will not inspire you or help you unless you are totally desparate. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Pilates buy
    This is the best pilates tool anyone could own. I am overweight and looking to lose weight, and after I started exercising regularly, I wanted to add both Pilates and balance ball exercises to my routine. After searching for a LONG time to find a great dvd, I found this one. It has been such a rewarding dvd for so many reasons, and I have already lost weight in combining this dvd and others in my routine. This dvd has three sections for beginners, intermediate, and advanced levels. The great thing is that each section has 5 workouts ranging from 10 minutes to 90 minutes, and you can choose a program with or without a warm-up. The instructor is great and each move is done a good amount of times. There is nice music in the background as well. What I also find to be truly invaluable in this dvd is the fact that during the workout the instructor will remind you to breathe properly, just in case you forget, and she also tells you how many are left during each exercise. I can write forever about how GREAT this dvd is, but I don't like reading long reviews myself so I wont make you! Just know that this is the #1 DVD for Pilates students at any level, from novice to advanced, and I LOVE IT!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended For my Students-Taught By A Certified Instructor
    I am a Pilates instructor and recommend this to my students who come to class looking to get in shape and lose weight.

    There is a wide range of work outs for them to use and the instruction is expertly done. Prior to recommending it to my students, I watched this DVD and did some research on the instructor's background. Both were impressive (she was trained and certified by Romana Kryzanowska.)

    As others have pointed out, Pilates is not a "weight loss" method in and of itself, but was developed to help develop "core" strength and flexibility. It is used extensively in physical rehabilitation; in other words if you are out of shape or have an injury the general nature of Pilates is designed to be helpful to get you back into shape with less stress on your body than other forms of exercise. To me it accurately and faithfully represents what Joseph Pilates developed.

    This DVD additionally provides three levels of instruction (Beginner, Intermediate and Advance) with the proper Pilates modifications for each level so you will be able to use it for a long, long time even as you progress and get back into shape.

    The notes on the DVD state it "is the perfect complement to any weight-loss program" and instructor reiterates this on the DVD - Pilates will be one aspect in helping you get into shape and other changes in your lifestyle, such as diet, may be needed. There is never a magic bullet that will make you lose weight.

    While there are also other physical activities you can engage in trying to get in shape, Pilates is one that is worth considering based on how and why it was originally developed. And if you already know that you would like to make Pilates part of your activity, then this DVD is perfect.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Starting to See My Abs Again
    After having 2 kids and years of sleeplessness, I thought my abs were a thing of the past. A friend let me borrow this DVD and I love it. It lets me work on what I need to work on, and also fits into my busy schedule when I have time to myself. I looked in the mirror the other day (after using the DVD for 2 months) and I am starting to see my abs again. Follow what the intructor says in terms of exercising properly and other suggestions and I am sure this will help you too.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Discouraged
    The models and the sets look good, but here's the situation: Joseph Pilates would NEVER describe his method as a weight loss strategy. Mr. Piates was an amazingly intelligent man with incomparable integrity. The Pilates method is a wholistic approach to mental, physical, and spiritual health. The method was NEVER intended to provide a quick way to lose weight.

    As a professional Pilates instructor with 20 years' of experience teaching the method, I feel strongly that people represent Joseph Pilates' work accurately.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not JUST for weight loss
    If you're completely new to Pilates, it's perfect for you. If you're experienced in it, this may not be the best choice of a DVD. This was the 4th Pilates program I bought and it's better then all 3 of the others combined. The instruction is detailed and separate from the actual exercise sessions. There are several sessions of different lengths and focusing on different areas (legs, upper body) at each of the 3 levels. As you get to the harder levels they start going faster but it's not too fast. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great pilates workout
    I recommend this dvd for anyone that wants to tone their whole body. The instructor is fun, she is full of positive energy and is constantly encouraging you to keep up the good work.This dvd has a great total body workout.The dvd has five 10 minute segments.These segments consist of: abs, buns and thighs, body sculpt, total body burn, and pilates for flexiblity. I really enjoy this workout and have seen results.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of my Favorites!
    This is a great DVD - Each of the 5 segments is fantastic. I love that you can customize your own work out. You can feel your muscels stretching and toning at the same time. Lara Hudson is so graceful and instructs so well.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and Effective!
    I found this video to be very effective.I've had it now for almost a week and after the first 3 days I could already feel my abs and core getting stronger.I, personally, am concentrating on separate routines at a time, but I do squeeze in that incredible flexibility set which is great for relaxing.I feel so good for finally buying a pilates video...especially this one.I couldn't have done any better.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Beginners or Anyone
    I really have enjoyed this DVD, she is easy to understand and her intructions and constant body check reminders are great! I have about 20 pounds to lose so there are one or two individual moves I can't do yet, but I will eventually. This whole 10 minute series is GREAT!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    This has become one of my most used DVDs.I like all the segments, and love being able to tack on the ab segment to a weight workout which has trad abwork (yuck..).But my fave segment is the pilates stretch for flexibility.It is yummy.I tack it on to practically everything, except yoga.Most weight workouts have abysmal stretching, and this 10 minute segment covers the whole body and leaves you feeling really relaxed and opened.Love it!Hope she comes out with more workouts soon..... ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Literally
    Living in New England, my running routine has somewhat gone down the tubes due to the frigid weather. Plus my class schedule has so many 8-5 days in it that I don't have time to hit the gym. SO, I decided just after Thanksgiving to start doing a workout tape regime that would kill less time and still keep me in shape.

    My first tape...Callanetics. Great sculpting workout, but no cardio. The immediate first thought...Tae Bo. I have a lot of friends who sang the praises of Billy Blanks, but I had yet to see myself what cardio kickboxing was all about. I bought the DVD version (1) because it was actually cheaper than the tapes and (2) had all the tapes rolled up into one slim package that would probably last longer anyway.

    I did what the instructions told me and did the introductory workout first. This teaches you the basics of the moves he likes to incorporate into the routines. Although I feel that he could have explained some of the positions better (i.e., when you do the roundhouse kicks, turn the foot you're standing on OUT...it will help twist your hips down so you can lift your leg as high as possible while working out your gluteal muscles...he doesn't emphasize this, just tells you to keep your hand on your hip and kick to the side), you find out his workout is relatively simple in technique. However, he warns you that he CAN and WILL make it more PHYSICALLY difficult as you progress.

    I then advanced to the basics workout. Being an avid runner and gym rat, I found this to be a pretty decent workout. Built up a respectable sweat and felt empowered...just pictured kicking ex-boyfriends in the face. :) Plus, I surprised myself with how fierce I can feel...really lets out stress and remains fun.

    The advanced workout...whoa. Not for the faint of heart. 45 minutes of cardio with many many many fast sequences of kicks and jabs that will make you feel like a puppet being yanked in eight different directions...it's great. :) Then, the floor work...you probably have never done so many doggy-lifts in your life! Killer! :) I highly recommend this DVD!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Taebo will get you going!
    I have been doing power yoga, jump roping, running, power walking, some martial arts (at studios) and a little weight lifting and I couldn't even get toned. I was still getting slightly depressed and I felt my motivation go down. BUT then I luckily found Taebo. Billy Blanks is this incredible motivator that really gets you going. Before I got to an advanced level I started to see stomach muscle tone and overall lean muscle tone--it's really amazing. Yes, you should spend an extra 15 min of stretching prior and after each workout, but if Billy Blanks were to have included a stretch out in the videos than it would have been boring. Yes, the music [is bad]. However, you can get over those petty concerns if you take your fitness goals seriously. Don't whine, get off your seat and just do it! I'm now doing Taebo 5X a week and cardio 1X a week--despite the fact that I have recently recieved radiation treatment for Grave's disease (and will require a life time of meds). You can transcend any emotional pain in your life by your pure determinism!

    4-0 out of 5 stars They could have picked better music!!!
    I love TaeBo, but it's a little difficult to get pumped up to elevator hiphop! Please! Overall, the workout is awesome. I saw results in 2 weeks, and it makes me feel strong, sexy, and empowered (I just picture kicking and punching my ex-husband in the face when I need that extra boost! LOL). This is worth the money. Maybe when you get the moves down, you could crank up some real music to kick-butt to!

    I have had to work to control my weight since puberty. I have been working out since I was 16 yrs. old and of all the things I have tried, I have never gotten into shape as fast as I did with Tae-Bo. About a month and a half after I began the workout, people were asking me what I was doing. I was so pleased with the results! And not only do you lose weight quick, but you feel so much better! Strong and energized. I thought what I payed was pretty inexpensive after seeing what it did for me. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD at an excellent price
    I find this DVD to be an invaluable resource. It has more than four hours of various sections and details. It is perfect for beginners because it doesn't "dumb-down" the art of Tai Chi and gives an incredible overview. Tai Chi was originally a martial art and is now practiced mainly for health and relaxation. Without the martial essence the Spirit is lost, the postures have no meaning, and the mind loses its focus during practice.

    This is the real thing, on a DVD with amazing navigation. Every single movement, posture and technique has its own chapter marker which makes it possible for anyone to study the form carefully and learn authentic Tai Chi quickly.

    The depth of the content is impressive, while the presentation is simple and relaxing. I especially love the music during the program and the breathing instructions during the form..

    There really is enough to practice on this DVD for years, rather than many of the Tai Chi videos out there where you see someone on the beach going through the motions, which you'll only ever watch once or twice. It is very difficult to find anyone who even knows the original 108 Posture Classical form, nevermind a teacher who performs it so beautifully and gives us so much insight.

    1-0 out of 5 stars A reference video, not for the beginner
    This is really more an encyclopedia article than a learning video. Note also this video comes from a fighting art viewpoint; no relieve-stress-on-the-beach scenes here. As reference it goes into MUCH detail, but for beginners this is too tedious a place to start. All the moves are shown from about the same angle; new learners usually need more help than that and will find this video frustrating in that respect. If you already know the form, are looking for more historical background or are coming from another martial art you will find a lot of data. So it all depends on your goals - to learn the form look elsewhere, this is way overpriced. But if you already know the form and are looking for details, you may find it interesting. Either way though its a bit pricey for what you get.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest Tai Chi Video Ever
    The DVD edition of this Yang style Tai Chi video is so amazing. It is organized in a very simple and scholarly way, but the teaching inside is very deep and thorough.

    It starts right at the very basics for beginners and gives you an excellent overview of the art of Tai Chi. The setting is a formal training studio. The video contains all the things you would learn in a Tai Chi Class from the basic stances and fundamental postures, to the entire form instructed and performed in complete detail by Dr. Yang.

    There is an enhanced content button you can click on at any time to get the detailed analysis and instruction of every one of the movements. He even demonstrates some Chin Na grappling hidden in the postures of the form.

    Not only is the entire thing subtitled, which is really helpful, but there are additional content subtitles, between the narration, in case you're interested in knowing more. It is over four hours long, including an excerpt of a Tai Chi Theory lecture by Dr. Yang, where he clearly explains the roots of Taiji Philosophy and Tai Chi as a martial art. This lecture alone makes the DVD worth getting.

    There are also additional sections which explain Taiji Qigong (Chi Kung) internal energy training, and Taiji Fa Jin, which is the 'emission of internal power.'

    The music is beautiful Classical Chinese and suits Master Yang nicely. I see this DVD as a very important document for transmitting the true essence of Taiji, both in its Classical form, and as a living, modern art.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners
    This is definitely a great DVD but it's not for beginners. The concepts he explains and the way the forms & other sequences are filmed will not do you much good unless you're already familiar with tai chi / kung fu. The picture quality leaves much to be desired and it's obvious that this was poorly remastered from a VHS tape. However, there is a wealth of information here and it's really worth the price. All of Dr. Yang, Jwing Ming's products are worth seeking out for the enthusiast or serious student.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely well done
    I've seen a number of other videos offering instruction in various styles of martial arts and Tai Chi specifically. This one stands above them all for the quality of the production and the way the DVD is put together.

    There is a great wealth of information on this DVD. There is a short lecture on theory, a number of loosening up and warming up exercises, Taiji Qigong exercises, and of course the full Yang style long form. Everything has chapter stops and you can skip to the section you want quickly and easily from the DVD menu.

    The long form doesn't dwell excessively on any individual movement which allows you to practice along with it, but if you want more detail on how a movement is performed, you can hit 'Enter' on your DVD remote when the yin yang symbol is on the screen to get in depth instruction on the current movement being demonstrated. In that way it manages to offer the best of both worlds.

    The only small criticism I have is the way the camera angle would switch sometimes during the course of a movement. It was done to provide the best view of the movement I'm sure, but the specific directions each movement travels in are not clear. A small nit to pick no doubt and probably of no concern to a beginner anyway. All in all this DVD stands well above any other Tai Chi instructional video I've seen. ... Read more

    All of this physical conditioning has really helped our

    I bought the bloody dvd set and it is the worst thing I have ever bought.It gives no credence wha has been promoted about it.It has no substance and completely a waste of time.I would rather work one the old Cindy Crawford Videos compared to this.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Awsome
    I just received my DVD yesterday and I'm about to buy discs 1 & 2 today! The lap dance was a little strange (I wasn't prepared with the right chair!) but it is a good warm up for the next disc. The Hip-Hop workout was awesome! I definitely worked up a sweat and I am pretty sore today. Carmen makes it look so easy to be sexy while doing this, but I did not exude the same confidence and found myself laughing at my own attempts to look sexy! It was really fun, though, and she takes the time to carefully explain each step. This makes it easy for the non-dancer types such as myself! After I got the steps down (I had to replay the disc several times!), I would rewind just until the last part which is when you go through the whole routine with the music. This is when I really started to get pumped up! I think this is a great workout program, and once I get the steps down well-enough, I think I may be able to feel more sexy while doing them!

    5-0 out of 5 stars So Much Fun!!!
    Before I tried this series, I was convinced that Carmen Electra was just another mindless pretty face.Now, however, I really respect her for her talent at leading a clear workout that otherwise might be frustrating. Although these dvds don't quite provide a thorough workout and require a bit of coordination (I'm far from a dancer), I use them on the light days that I alternate with my heavier cardio.The workouts are light and fun, and Carmen's demeanor and instruction emphasize that the workouts are meant to be relaxed. I felt slightlly idiotic starting out, but I discovered that after a few workouts I began to feel sexier as I was dancing.These dvds are also GREAT if you want to have a few girlfriends over for a "learn to dance for your boyfriend" party!

    I have all 5 of these "workout" DVDs let me tell you it is not worth it at all the only one worth buying is fit to strip.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nice Change to the Typical Workout
    This 30 minute workout is broken out into three, 10 minute segments that target first the lower body, then the upper body and lastly, the abs. The upper body portion is done using two sets of dumbbells; I used 5 and 8 lbs. You can choose to do one, two or all three segments. When I previewed this workout, I thought it might be too easy for me, an intermediate level exerciser. Well, I just finished it, and I am whipped. I was sweating after the first segment and was so motivated that I completed the other two segments as well. There is an exercise done in the lower body segment that really worked my hamstrings. This is my first stability ball workout, and I recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Quick Workouts
    These workouts are fast and effective. They are only for toning, so I usually add one or two to a cardio workout. There are many creative uses of the stability ball in all of these workouts, and the instructor moves through the exercises quickly and gets a lot done in 10 minutes. The upper body segments requires heavy and light weights thought I found using five pound weights for both effective especially the first few times. Some of the exercises are difficult the first time, but there are alternatives for beginners. A lot of the exercises in all the workouts require good balance and core stability.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Anti-Depressant!
    I've been using this DVD for about three weeks now, when I don't feel like biking or walking, and I highly recommend it for people who have maybe had a little Pilates/yoga/weight work instruction and just want to come at it all from a different perspective. Make no mistake: Being on a ball doesn't make it easier! It makes you 'get real' about your posture and etc. Your muscles will bark back at you, especially on the lower body segment, but you'll feel pleased and proud when you complete it. The instructions are compassionate; the 'instructresses' are cheery and motivating. The background music doesn't sound like something from a (...) movie. And it's all over in a half-hour! If nothing else, this video will coax you out of a bad mood -- and maybe, after time, into a smaller pair of pants!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another Quick Fix Winner
    I own four Quick Fix DVD's and three are on regular rotation for my workouts (except the Yoga/Pilates, which stinks). This is a great workout that ensures I'll be sore the next day!

    5-0 out of 5 stars busy mother of 3
    Great DVD, highly recommend it. If you can't get away to a gym to workout, this is a great alternative, inexpensive, low tech, very doable for a middleage woman trying to get back in shape. I can do this on the basement floor while the kids play! The exercises offer two levels so if it's too hard you can do the easier version. Very pleasant leader, very encouraging, not a "fluff" or scantily clad kind of female but very atheletic and also middle age. I'm already noticing good results in 1 weeks use so give it a try!!! ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very easy but still a lot of fun
    I haven't found a pregnancy video yet that makes me feel like I've had a good workout, but at least this one comes close. I can't say that I get my heart rate up, but I guess it's better than doing nothing. The salsa dance is easy to catch on to, accompanied by good music, but rather mild in intensity level. So it's advised that experienced exercisers do the yoga fat burn afterwards. The main benefit of this section is toning (thighs) and stretching (back and sides) but it moves really slowly. I don't mind all the repetition in the video since it makes it easier to learn the moves, but I wish it had a bit more oomph to it. I still do my usual exercise videos and even step aerobics (at almost 6 months) but I think I'll be using Fit Mama more and more as I get bigger.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for ANY type of pregnant exerciser!
    I have to agree with Lois, Jennifer from Georgia is SO wrong!

    I am 6 weeks pregnant. Before this, I worked out about 2-3 times a week with weights and cardio using The Firm. I bought this video last week and did my first routine on Saturday. I was so incredibly pleased by the workout and Leisa, that I couldn't wait to write a review on it.
    First - Leisa Hart is an amazing instructor. In the beginning of a pregnancy, you feel more fat than pregnant. She makes you feel beautiful. She says many times to be proud of your growing body and even says "let me see your bellies." It is very uplifting and really boosts your self-esteem just with that alone.
    I have a background in dance, so I LOVED that it started out with Salsa dancing. If it's not getting your heart rate up, then add something to it, maybe weights on your ankles. However, it did get my heart rate up, it made me feel good. Leisa is very peppy, and you want to keep going because of her.
    The time goes by quickly because you have things to focus on. The fun dance, or Leisa herself. The stretching sections are good, and overall, I give the tape an A+ and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone of any exercise background.
    Pregnancy isn't what it used to be. Working out isn't bad. Having too high of a heart rate is bad though. But if you don't have a tape and you're concerned about possibly gaining too much weight (as we all are) then get this tape. You won't be disappointed, and I am VERY picky about what workouts I do.

    Not only will working out help keep you in shape, it also helps speed your metabolism and lower your hunger cravings. You are only supposed to get an extra 300 calories a day during pregnancy, without working out, there's no way I wouldn't overeat. Lisa also explains in the beginning anything you may have questions on.

    Drink lots of water, and have a safe and pleasant pregnancy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars best prenatal video ever!!!!
    FITMAMA Prenatal is no doubt the BEST EVER prenatal made to hit the market. I LOVED IT. Leisa Hart is a guru with fitness programming, I loved her BUNS OF STEEL videos a few years back and loved it when I saw that she did a prenatal video, expecially after doing a few others that bored me to tears. This was fund, the Salsa dancing got my heart rate to a great level, the yoga was new and fun, a great variation that Leisa explains well and it toned my hips and legs and got my back ready to deliver another healthy baby, this is a TWO THUMBS UP video!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great pregnancy workout -- even if you hate to exercise!
    I was so excited to find Leisa Hart's prenatal workout DVD. With my last pregnancy, I took up walking and tried doing whatever prenatal workout I could, but my well-meaning husband got me a prenatal yoga video that I just HATED to do. It felt a little too much like work, forcing myself to do it. Now 4 months into my second pregnancy, this DVD has been a lifesaver! Not only do I not mind doing it, but it's actually FUN! Plus, with the DVD format, you can pick and choose what type of workout you want to do ... from the fat-burning yoga one day to the Salsa dance (my absolute favorite) the next. Plus, there are lots of prenatal stretches and relaxation techniques. I especially like how fun and upbeat Leisa Hart keeps this workout ... not at all boring or "meditative" like some. Just a great prenatal workout in general! Five stars!

    5-0 out of 5 stars love this prenatal workout
    i love this prenatal video, the instructions are ideal, i don't have to follow a bunch of unnecessary choreography, and the personality of the instructor Leisa Hart is great....i highly recommend this workout, i never get bored doing it and always feel very refreshed and good about my workout, plus my darling hubbie thinks i am a FitMama!!! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Yoga Workout
    I began yoga about a year ago. I bought this set about 2 months ago and still absolutely love it. There are a wide variety of types of exercises, from stretching to fat burning, all at the beginner level. Most of the DVDs have 2 - 20 min sessions, so you can mix and match. Their instruction is well done; you can look at the screen to see what you should look like, but listen to understand all the fine details. They really emphasize the breath, telling you when to exhale and inhale, which is something I find lacking in many other yoga videos. If you are not sure you need so many yoga DVDS, I recommend starting with the YogaZone Intro to Power Yoga, the second session is great.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great teachers, good mix of sessions
    I love this collection. First, Yoga Zone tapes are my favorite. They explain the poses, what you should be focusing on, what you should be feeling, how to breathe, and how to make each pose harder/ easier depending on your level. All these sessions are suitable for beginners, and there's a great selection: flexibility, stress relief, yoga for abs, total body conditioning, intro to power yoga, and yoga for weight loss. Each DVD has two sessions. If you want to stretch, tone, relax, or move, there's a session in this collection for it. Plus, the variety keeps it interesting. If you're just starting yoga, buy/rent a Yoga Zone tape to see if you like it, and if you're going to stick with it, get this collection! ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Short and too Quick
    I found this Dvd to be not particularly helpful. It is divided into 3 separate trimester workouts, each of which is only about 10 minutes long. A 10 minute work out is not of much use to me. In addition, I thought the instructor went too quickly through each exercise, without much instruction on what to focus on. I enjoyed using a Pilates for Pregnancy book instead. I get a 30 minute work out using my book and I find it easier to read the instructions than to watch someone else zipping through the exercises.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVED THIS DVD!
    I just had my baby, and I used Prenatal Pilates from my 4th month on. To be honest, I thought it would be too easy. I am so glad I stuck with it! The bigger I got, the harder it was. It saved my back in my 3rd trimester. I have been told my labor was really short for a first pregnancy. I just gave it to my pregnant sister-in-law because she knew how much I loved it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars this is the best
    I got this as a gift and used in during all 3 trimesters. It truly helped me stay in shape during my pregnancy. Even now, a few weeks after delivery, I can tell that I'm in better shape than I was after my first child was born(when I hadn't used this excercis video then). I recommend it highly!!

    2-0 out of 5 stars No menu
    I only watched this DVD once! The video is split up into three sections. One for first, second and third trimesters. You are only supposed to watch the section that is designed for your stage in pregnancy for obvious saftey reasons. Mine did not have a menu. I had to watch the entire thing if I wanted to watch the third section. Who has time for that? I also would not recommend it for anyone who is just begining exercise. It was a waste of $25!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Pregnancy
    I'm so glad I found this video. It definitely helped make me more comfortable during my pregnancy, especially my back. The instructor takes care to modify the exercises for pregnancy and divided the video for each trimester. Great if you're a pilates fan or just need a safe way to exercise while you're pregnant. ...
