1 review about Crunch - Super SlimDown: Pilates Yoga Blend

Repetitive and boring yet still relaxing and simplistic

  • Feb 20, 2011
Having started to really enjoy yoga, I decided to try this DVD to continue to do yoga while experimenting with pilates, something that I haven't really ever tried before. I found this workout to be very easy to do and great for the body as it tones your muscles while stretching and relaxing other muscles at the same time, which really keeps you from being sore the next day. However, you repeat each move so many times that it simply get boring after a while, and because the moves are not really challenging, it just has you counting down the minutes until the workout is over. The moves are usually yoga postures with a pilates type twist on them such as pulsing or twisting; you then repeat this move many times, holding it almost every time. The moves are very flowing though, which makes most of them feel very nice. The moves seem to focus on legs and abs, and while I wasn't sore the next day because of the stretching done with the moves and after the workout, I still felt my muscles (especially my abs) working while I was doing the moves. Ellen Barrett, the instructor of this workout, is very pleasant and friendly as an instructor. She cues well and give motivation throughout the workout. My biggest flaw with this is just that it is very, very boring to me, although an extreme beginner to exercise might think differently. It is easy enough for a beginner to do, but an intermediate/advanced exerciser might appreciate it more for it's flow and feel-good quality. I have to say that I don't really recommend this DVD; I'd suggest finding another yoga/pilates workout.
