Winsor Pilates®

Winsor Pilates is one of the top-selling exercise video series of all time. Their smart marketing campaign includes a slick, award-winning infomercial complete with celebrity endorsements. While awareness of and interest in Pilates exercise had gained momentum in the 90s, one could argue that Mari Winsor and her Winsor Pilates infomercial finally brought Pilates exercise into the mainstream.

For over 15 years, Mari Winsor has run several successful L.A. Pilates studios where she personally trained many Hollywood stars, plus she authored several books on the subject. Her system of “dynamic sequencing” has the controlled, Pilates moves flowing at a faster pace, making them burn more calories while they tone your body. In fact, it is guaranteed (and trademarked) to “Sculpt Your Body Slim” in 20 minutes per day, three times a week.

The Winsor Pilates Basic 3 DVD Workout Set includes a Basics video, a 20 Minute Workout, and an Accelerated Body Sculpting pilates video. The Basics video teaches you step-by-step the seven main exercises of the Pilates method using her dynamic sequencing. The 20 Minute Workout is fun to do and is designed to quickly sculpt your body thin. The Accelerated Body Sculpting segment is a 57 minute workout that targets all the areas of your body. It is a powerful total body workout that will reshape your body from top to bottom.

Other items included with the kit include a meal plan, a sculpting journal, and some other value-added offerings. One neat feature is the Virtual 3-D Training, which shows the moves from various camera angles and with line drawings to make them easier to understand and perform.

The Winsor Pilates Fat Burning System contains four workouts in one: Maximum Burn Basics, Maximum Burn Cardio, Fat Burning, and Buns N Thighs. There is also a bonus fat burning cookbook and workout journal included with the DVD set. Mari Winsor's Fat Burning System is a fast-paced, challenging exercise program designed to help you lose weight and take your Pilates workout to the next level. This DVD is available on for about $50.

Other DVD titles in the Winsor Pilates series include Bun and Thigh Sculpting: Sculpt Your Body Slim, Ab Sculpting: Sculpt Your Body Slim, and Power Sculpting and Resistance. The Bun and Thigh Sculpting and Ab Sculpting DVDs each provide a quick 20 minute routine that targets the specific areas of the abs, and the buns and thighs. They offer a great workout in minimal time. These DVD's are also available on for about $15 each.
