I like my new core reformer. I like that the DVD has 3 segments so that I can do the whole work out or just one part of it during a break in my day. I've done Pilates on a studio reformer before so I'm familiar with the approach. If I had not been, I would not have had adequate body usage instruction from the DVD. All in all the core reformer adds a good piece to my exercise regimen. I am a bit nervous that the bands will snap. That could be quite dangerous when they are stretched to their maximum.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pilatesnut A bit of a disappointment
My friend showed me this product as an alternative to a reformer. I have tried it with the video three times and while I enjoy some of the exercises some are just akward.
I am a instructor and consider myself in good shape but I could not stretch the band very far like the women do in the video. So I could not execute the exercise with the precision that is suggested. With the exception of very few exercises it was nothing like the reformer. I think a resistance band is just a useful for a workout. I didn't really learn anything new.

I love all of Mari Winsor's Pilates DVDs. I have seen vast improvements in my body in the 3 months I have been using them. I really like the CorePlus Reformer workout because it includes added resistance to enhance results.

This is a good workout if you are familiar with Pilates moves and looking for a moderate challenge. Good for those days when you just don't want a heavy workout but want to hit all of the muscle groups.

This product is awesome and the video that comes with it is great. Using it is great fun and there are so many ways to use it as shown in the video. I have already recommended it to all my co-workers and friends!
