Perfect Pilates Body DVD - Andrea Speir

Total Fitness DVDs sent me Perfect Pilates Body DVD to review.  I have really enjoyed every segment of this DVD.  I haven't ever been able to do it in one workout session but I have done up to 5 of the segments at a time.  Andrea Speir is a terrific instructor.  She shows perfect form.  The moves are fairly easy to follow.  I have been doing Pilates for a while now and this DVD is right up my alley.  I would say it's good for an intermediate level.  The Magic Circle Meltdown segment is really my favorite.  

  • Warm Up (8 Minutes)
  • Core Blast (10 Minutes)
  • The Skinny Jeans (9 Minutes)
  • Tight Tush (9 Minutes)
  • Chiseled Arms (9 Minutes)
  • Full Body Flow (9 Minutes)
  • Stretching for Flexibility (7:30 Minutes)
  • Bonus: Magic Circle Meltdown (9 Minutes)

8 different 10 minute workouts to sculpt, shape and tone your body!

These different workouts can be used separately, depending on personal needs and goals, or all together as one full body workout.  The segments include a warm-up to get the body moving, core blast to strengthen and tone the abdominals, lengthening and elongating leg workout, tight tush segment to lift and shape the backside, chiseled arms to give that great arm definition, full body flow to work the entire body and get the heart rate up, and a stretching segment to increase flexibility.  In addition to all of this, there is a 10 minute bonus segment that shows some of the best exercises using a Pilates Magic Circle.

This effective Pilates program can safely and efficiently help you begin to get healthier and stronger in an easy to follow way with step by step instructions.
