Rated 4 out of 5 by Kat11 Worthwhile Purchase
I needed a Pilates ring, and this one did the trick. Good quality overall, and a great price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by CarolS Somewhat Disappointed
I first used a toning ring recently during physical therapy for a hip replacement and loved it. But the one I bought from Gaiam is not nearly as sturdy, and doesn't provide enough resistance. I suppose if I follow the video I'll toneup just doing the crunches and stretches, but I don't think the ring helps that much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SterlingVA Less intense than expected
Based on my enthusiasm for the Ana Caban Beginning and Intermediate Mat workout DVDs I purchased the Ring Kit. I've done ring work in a Pilates studio before, so I was excited to have something to work on at home. The ring is fine for home use, it does well enough, however, I may order a studio quality ring to increase the level of difficulty. I have to say the DVD is okay but I was initally disappointed with it. I thought the intensity would be close to the Intermediate video but the intensity varies significantly between easy and moderate. I recommend Gaim find some way to rate level of effort on videos. Plus, IMO, but I hate anything w/ chair exercises. Much of what was done in the chair we did standing in the studio. But I still get a lot of use out of it and make it work for me. To up the ante, I use the ring with the Intermediate Mat video to increase the difficulty and spice things up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gorph great customer service
The ring kit came and it is an excellent quality ring that will stand up to use. The DVD didn't work but Gaiam replaced it immediately.

I myself take pilates classes and I would much rather get the one that we use in class. This one does nothing for me....it is a little flimsy...I will be returning it.
