Before I had Allie I used to go to the gym five to six days a week. I would run on the treadmill for 30-60 minutes and then do some strength training for about 20 minutes on average. I was in pretty good shape. Lately I have really been missing the way I felt when I was in shape I decided to look for something I could do at home. I browsed online for other options and saw a lot of great reviews on Ana Caban's beginning pilates mat workout. This looked perfect for me. So, I contacted Ana and asked if she would let me do a review. She was so sweet and even autographed the copy she sent me.
The workout DVD is only 30 minutes long, but I have to say I was pretty sore the next day, even though I had been doing Pilates previously. I love that Ana moves from one thing to another pretty quickly without a lot of talking in between so you don't get bored. I also like that she explains things really well and while you are doing the exercise so it makes sense. It is easy enough for beginners, but Ana has 2 examples of how to do the positions so you can get more advanced when it gets a little too easy.
I would definitely recommend this DVD for someone who is just beginning and even to those who are relatively active.
Thanks for the chance to review your DVD Ana!
