    This DVD is great and very user friendly for the novice using a fitness ball, yet the routine is still challenging. As you go through the routine, the exercises are simple but they always offer you a more challenging version of the same exercise for those more advanced users of the fitness ball. I would definitely recommend this as a good, solid exercise routine and to build confidence in the program. I will continue with this one but ready to purchase others too in order to mix my routine up. Thank you.

    This product explains things that most other products “assume” you already know. this is nice for beginners.

    After a week I really felt myself becoming stronger. After 2 weeks, I could notice a difference in the tone of my stomach. Can’t wait to see what it’s like 2 and 6 months from now.

    I really like the style of this video. The instructor is very encouraging (I like how she’ll tell you “you have two more now, you’re doing great!”) and clear about her instructions. She talks to you throughout and I found it very helpful; in at least one other workout video I have, I didn’t know we’d switched exercises until the instructors were already in an entirely different position. She also gives helpful hints throughout.

    The camera takes shots from different angles so you can tell exactly how to set up your form and how to make the movements.

    I also like the breaks between exercises. It gave me time to rest for a moment and regroup. In other videos, I often find myself falling behind because they move from one exercise to another without a pause, when I could really use half a minute to catch my breath. I am also happy that after almost every set there’s at least a little stretch. I find it keeps me from cramping up and allows me to keep going.

    If you bought a pilates ball and have no idea what to do with it, I definitely recommend this video. Though it’s “easy” I feel I get a very good workout with it and I am not bored with it yet.

    I have never done a ball workout so I tried Ball for Dummies. It is easy to follow and will really give results. I felt toner and trimmer within one month. The best size of the ball to use depends on your heighth and the exercise. I use the larger ball and I skip a few of the exercises. But overall, the DVD is really good and I even bought the DVD as a gift to a friend.

    I’m in my early 30’s, go to the gym 4 times a week and am in pretty good shape. At the gym I do the elliptical as well as some of the fitness (weight) equipment. I decided it would be nice to to add some variation to my routine as well as have a workout I could do from home.

    I researched for a while and decided on the ball and the video ball workout for Dummies. The result? I’m VERY happy. At first I didn’t think it was going to be worth the money or time- I’m used to working up quite a sweat at the gym and thought this workout might be “too easy” for me. Well… not so. It hurt to walk for 3 days after I did the video the first time. This tells me I was working SOMETHING that I usually didn’t. It’s true, it targets muscles that aren’t typically “worked out” on traditional exercises or machines.

    All in all, I really like this video. The instructor is a bit annoying but I’ve come across worse. It goes slowly (which is the point to get an efficient workout) and really explains how to position yourself correctly (which I find to be a downfall of a lot of the others). I’d say go for it!

    I found this workout to be challenging and effective. I’m new to fitness ball exercising and each time I’ve worked out with this DVD, I felt it the next day! It’s easy to follow, easy to keep up with and the instructor keeps you motivated. I would recommend this DVD as a starting point to anyone that is new to fitness ball exercises.

    This is the first ‘for dummies’ workout that I have bought and I really like it. It’s a good dvd if you haven’t done a ball workout before. You focus on stability and balance and building up your core strength. But because you use weights too, you also get good toning for the whole body. They use your regular overhead presses and ab work too. She gives you optional moves if you want to make it harder or easier and tells you what not to do wrong.

    Don’t be fooled by thinking you can’t get a good workout from a stability ball. You will totally feel this the next day and you will be surprised with exactly how many muscles you in fact worked. I really like this a lot.

    This was my first exercise ball tape I bought. Being a larger size person, I found that this was a help to getting started. I can do most of the exercises right away. I like that it has exercises with weights also. I find this a help to getting back into shape, even with my bad back.

    This is a great workout to introduce you to working with a ball. It covers a range of exercises, really focuses on your core, and includes strength training.

    The only problem I had was at the end, during cool-down, the instructor doesn’t hold the stretches very long. That’s usually when I turn it off and do my own cool down based on her plan.

    I highly recommend this DVD if you are buying a ball for the first time.

    Out of all the tapes this one gave me the most results in actually elongating my body.. liz explains how to use proper postures to avoid neck pain.. I originally tried tapes off of those listed suggestions. The other tapes I tried were ok but found I really listened with Liz’s tips on form. This made all the difference and is the best for understanding ball!! thanks
