Kathi Casey Pilates Giveaway

Kathi Casey Pilates For the record, Kathi Casey Pilates kicked my butt…thighs, gut, and hips.
I was sent three Kathi Casey Pilate DVDs. I know I’m not in the greatest of shape, but I figured, for your sake (ahem), that I’d start with the “Get Ready for Pilates” DVD. I thought this would be a breeze and I’d move on to the next DVD. Oh, how silly I really am!IMG_5327This first DVD is 60 minutes long. I made it almost 25 minutes. Yes, I’m in that bad of shape and this is an “easy, beginner program…” This was NOT a good sign for how my Pilates was going to go.
Kathi’s Pilate’s program is for everyone, all age groups. Working through the DVD I saw that was true. She would start out a position and show a different way to do it in case it was too difficult for one reason or another. All I have to say is, “Thank you for the alternate positions! They were used!”IMG_5326I appreciate that Kathi also goes through the video reminding us to keep our shoulders relaxed and our belly buttons in and up. Trying to remember to do them at the same time all the while remembering to keep a count of five breaths in and out, in thru the nose, out thru the mouth, is just too much for me! Her reminders at just the right moments were perfect for me! I had a hard time keeping my shoulders relaxed because of trying too hard.
I have noticed as I do the Pilate’s program that I’m gaining strength, which I’ve have really had. Yes, I might be skinny by some people’s standards, but I have very little muscle tone. My goal is to gain more flexibility and strengthening my body. Watching Kathi bend and stretch like it’s no big deal had me wishing I was already there!IMG_5323By the end of the video, what I could do of it, my legs would be shaking and there were moves I had very little balance for. So, thank goodness I’ve started out with the beginners DVD. I’m looking at the Advanced DVD’s out of the corner of my eye skeptically. The only way I’ll ever make it to those is by getting through this first one! I’ve made it as far as 45 minutes. I’m going to get it done. I’m going to!

*As a side note, I have no clue why there is a black line on my tv because they’re not on my DVD. Maybe it’s how the sun is hitting the tv as the camera took the photo.
Now one person is going to win the tri of DVDs by Kathi Casey!
WINNER: Comment #106. For some reason Blogger isn't allowing me to upload my Random.org photo. I've tried for about a week and it keeps making my editor disappear. If anyone wants proof of the winner, I will be happy to email a photo to you.

  1. I could use a new mat!

    This is perfect timing for a giveaway - just yesterday I thought my old pilates dvd was getting too routine for me! And you are right - I am "skinny" too - but that doesn't always translate to toned and muscular!

  65. Actually, the bundle of three videos looks the most helpful. I've been doing Pilates for a while but I do like the idea of how much time she spends on proper form in the beginner's video. I could definitely use that to supplement classes and also have the next two in the series to work up to!
