I purchased this DVD after a few months of using the original MTV Pilates DVD. I felt like I wanted more of a challenge, and MTV Pilates Mix definitely delivered. I agree with the reviewer who said that workout 1 requires lots of upper body strength -- at first I wasn't even sure if I'd be able to complete many of the moves. Within few weeks, however, I was amazed that I was able to follow along with the beginner and intermediate instructors, and it's getting easier all the time. Workout 2 is great as well and includes lots of creative spins on classical Pilates moves. The format of the DVD allows you to customize your workout by mixing segments of workout 1 and 2, but it doesn't flow well and, though it's a nice option, isn't really necessary. Kristin McGee is very personable and encouraging without being obnoxious. The music is decent, although I like to use the instructor-only audio track and play my own music.
I really don't like this workout video. it gets 4 stars because it delivers what it promises & gave me a good workout, but I just don't like the flow or the bad editing. I just don't like it & wouldn't buy it again. It feels disjointed. You select what workout you want & there are different combinations so there must be somewhere like 20 different workouts you can get from this DVD, but it goes from one segment to the next w/o any transition. I just don't like it. But, it was a decent workout & I felt where my body had been working the next day. I'm not that big into Pilates so that may also be why I don't love this workout. I just liked Kristin McGee's other workouts.
If your house was burning and you had managed to save your kids, pets, photos, etc, but had time to only grab ONE video, which would it be? I own close to a hundred fitness videos- cardio, strength, pilates and yoga, but Pilates Mix would be my choice without even thinking about it. I agree with all the comments by the previous reviewers, so I won't go on to repeat their comments. The program is tough, it's very effective, and best of all, it is unique. I usually do program 1 plus the bonus on one day, skip a day, do program 2 plus bonus, skip another day, and then do a traditional full Pilates. I've been doing this since Pilates Mix first came out, and I've lost 2 inches from both waist and thighs, even though I had felt as though I was very fit before starting this. Another big plus is that my entire back is so much stronger now. So many fitness videos focus on strenthening or toning strictly what you see in the mirror- abs, arms, thighs. This program is well balanced for full...
