After practicing Pilates for many years, I wanted to develop a home program for myself. The cd class with Ana Caban. It's motivated me to work out more frequently, 4-5x/week

I love Ana Caban´s videos. This one is slower paced, but still a great workout. I did like the ring, it the cushions give you a good grip and it is flexible. You can do the same exercises as the ones shown on the video, although the video shows a different ring, but I consider this ring to be just equally as perfect for perfoming the exercises.

Could be streamlined.
The ring is of good quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rocky34 Broke in half
I have only used this ring half a dozen times. It never felt sturdy so I was always extra gentle with it when working out. I was so gentle at times I felt like I was missing out on some of my workout. Well this last time I was being as gentle as I always had been and it just snapped in half. I really enjoyed the guide it provides when maintaining posture for the exercises but it does not provide resistance and it will break if you try to give it any. I looked around for another one to replace it, but the others I have found seem to have the same or similar complaints. Perhaps I am just not looking in the right places or perhaps this is the nature of the Pilates ring. I don't know.

Rated 3 out of 5 by crysld just for beginners
I was really excited when I first bought this kit because it was something new to add to my exercise regimen. I do have to say that I am a little disappointed, though; the dvd was okay, but was short in length. in fact, when the whole exercise came to an end, I was like "really? that's it?" some parts of the dvd were challenging, however, I also agree that the ring is flimsy, so I'll be buying one that has more resistance & is of better quality, especially since I feel like I might break this one. for the chair exercises, I stayed sitting, Indian-style, on my mat, however, next time I will do them standing. this is mainly just for beginners who have never used a ring or as a warm-up for another exercise. I do love Gaiam's other products, though, so don't let the quality of this ring reflect poorly on other products from Gaiam.
