Move It at Home: 10 Minute Solution: Slim and Sculpt Pilates

Looking for a new Pilates DVD to do at home?

I recently tried 10 Solution: Slim and Sculpt Pilates ($13.99), which consists of five dynamic Pilates workouts that are ten minutes each. The workouts work your entire body by using a band to mimic the resistance offered by traditional Pilates machines (like the Reformer and the Cadillac). You can split these routines into five separate workouts or do them all together (50 minutes) for the ultimate body, which is what I did. Not only does the DVD come with a free resistance band, but using the band is a fun way to add resistance to your workout without having to have a set of dumbbells at home.

I liked that they were divided into ten minute segments, but I was a little peeved that the cover of the DVD made it seem like the whole thing could be done in ten minutes. The five, ten-minute workouts included upper-, lower-, and total-body Pilates, Pilates for abs, and Pilates for flexibility (or stretching). The total-body Pilates portion was my favorite because it was especially challenging but a good, fun workout.

The instructor, Suzanne Bowman, did not rub me the wrong way, which is good (but not typical for fitness DVDs). Overall it was enjoyable and I'd definitely recommend it to others as well as do it again. Buy it here.

I wish I could hold a smile like that when trying to keep those bands from slipping. Maybe I just need longer ones...
