DVD - Armchair Pilates with Handweights 5

Awesome Addition to Your workout

These hand weights are so "handy" :) They are great for taking on your walks to get extra firm arms and open up the chest and of course in your regular routine.

This is very helpful to me especially during this difficult time that we are unable to go to the gym for our classes we are used to taking.

Excellent program for someone who has to sit to do most of their exercises.

By , ON, CA on January 05, 2020

Clear, easy to follow, appropriately demanding exercises. There are a lot of upper body (arm, back) exercises, and some good core exercises. I like it. This is an excellent workout for chair compared to other DVD's I've tried. If your arms are not totally strong at first just go through the motions minus the weights to get a feel of limbing up regardless. . It is definitely challenging and simple to follow. The core Muscles get a good workout as well. The standing exercises are not demanding however enable gentle full stretching.

Thank you

By , Philippines on October 19, 2015

I only write this to tell you how good I think your DVD programs are. I am an 77 year old physiotherapist and I have used your programs for may be 3 to 4 years. Up till just now I have been living in the Philippines and purchased the equipment in Manila and I purchased your DVDs online. I enjoy the exercises and the DVDS are so easy to follow. I have a routine of 2 DVDs in the morning and it is great fun. I only want you to know how much I appriciate your Pilates! Thank you.
