I bought this video about 6-7 months ago b/c I was running my first full marathon in several years and knew I needed to do some sort of cross-training to help with injuries–I’ve had problems with my hips and knees over the years. I also have 2 young kids so needed something convenient to do at home. I’ll admit that at first I wasn’t sure if it was helping, but I kept it up a couple of times a week and as I got better at it, I could actually feel myself running straighter and stronger. I ran a second marathon about a month ago and I qualified for Boston for the first time! I’m so amazed that I’ve had no problems with my hips or knees since I started doing this, and I really believe it’s the reason. Just fyi it’s pretty hard–I think I’m in pretty good shape but there are a couple of moves (the plank ones) I still have to “modify”. But overall I’d highly recommend trying this and sticking with it even if it’s frustrating at first–I’ve recommended it to several friends. I just wish she’d come out with a 2nd video b/c now I know this one by heart and there’s not much else there designed specifically for runnners!

My PT recommended Pilates while recovering from a running injury. I saw great results in just a couple of workouts. Hip and quad weakness improved so much. I continue to do this DVD twice a week
