Have all of the essential exercises on the reformer mastered? This gives you detailed instruction and demonstrations of nearly all of the intermediate level exercises. These exercises require noticeably more strength and coordination than the essentials, but none are impossibly hard.
This is one of the Stott DVDs designed for instructors, so the approach is more comprehensive than a regular routine would be, as every exercise is covered (not something you would typically do in a single workout), and it's discussed as how you would help a client. That said, the step-by-step demonstration of each exercise is extremely useful.
This workout is excellent and thorough. I began with the beginner's version, then went to the intermediate. I was quite well-prepared for this one. It includes most of the intermediate and adds new more challenging moves. If I am in a rush, I skip over some of the exercises and still feel like I have gotten a very good workout. I can literally see and feel myself getting stronger and stronger. The exercises are well-described and the video makes them easy to follow. I highly recommend this video.
I purchased this DVD to use with my home reformer. Was dismayed to discover it's actually more of an instructional video for teachers, rather than an at-home follow-along type of DVD. It can be used at home, but the viewer will only get a few reps per movement with the instructor. If you want to do more reps, you'll have to remember the routine and modify to suit your needs.
