Pilates DVD Round-up

By July 15, 2011

Follow me on:

I've reviewed a whole heap of Pilates DVDs in my time. I almost always find something to appreciate about them. Occasionally, however, a DVD is just awful or I think it promotes unsafe techniques. In that case, I reject it or if I think a lot of people might be affected by it, I publicly warn people in a review. Luckily, there have been very few of those (there was Wii Pilates but that wasn't really a DVD).

More often that not, even if a DVD isn't exactly to my taste, I see value for someone with different interests than mine and I try to talk about that - just so all readers are clear on what they are getting if they get that DVD. But there are also a number of DVDs that consistently come to mind when people ask me for my Pilates DVD recommendations. I thought you might like to know what they are, so I made of list of my picks for Pilates DVDs.

I divided my list into beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels and also made a category for those I think of as fusion Pilates. I only have so much room and can't fit every DVD I think is good in my list - I limited myself to 3 per category -  so do check my full reviews. Also, this past winter, About.com readers chose their favorites for Best Pilates DVD. That was quite a process, let me tell you. Some of the reader picks were different than mine, and some I had never heard of! I had to act fast to get a copies for myself. A few of those are now on my top Pilates on DVD list as well.

By the way, all of my Pilates DVD reviews have a link at the bottom where you can add your own review. I would love to have more people do that!
