No Pilates experience? No problem! Sculpt your entire midsection with this 10-minute routine designed for novices.
I love this video
Good Pilates video for beginners. Very well done!
Glory lies in the attempt to reach one's goal,
and not in reaching it.

Excellent, video! Perfect for beginners, as you can do as much as you can, approximate the positions (she shows the ideal form). Useful verbal cues and instructions throughout. Loved it!
I love this video.
video does not play but you know that already....
The video has sound but no picture. Would like to try it but I need to see what the instructor is doing.
This video does not play. When you click on it, a new window opens up for the advertised site.
Hey SparkPeople, thanks for making me watch a commercial for Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls before I can see the workout video! What a joke!
tried it for the 10 minutes and i was pretty good and you can feel it in your legs and stomach when i was finished will try another one tomarrow night. need to get rid of the stomach fat.
How about a few modifications? Lifting the legs that high can put a strain on the lower back. Also, anyone with shoulder problems cannot do those arm circles.
I like this as a stretching video. I'm 278 with back issues and knees issues and I feel great at the end of this workout!
probably the most ungraceful thing I have done in awhile but at 260 what do you expect. I did it...and I will do it again. why? because I am worth it. yeah baby!
A lovely exercise routine! Especially after a cardio workout. I enjoyed it. Instructions were simple and easy to follow.
I love this Pilates exercise,I could do this everyday,thanks for sharing.
