The Pilates Classic app presents the classic Pilates series of exercises in the classic sequential order. This classic order has been designed to loosen up your muscles first before exercising them. These exercises were designed to be performed anywhere and now that they are available on the iPhone you can have a portable guide that you can reference anywhere.
This app has a Beginner's set and an Advanced set of the exercises. There is a switch in the Settings section to select between the Beginner's set and the Advanced set. Each exercise has a video of Marian Tasker demonstrating the exercise along with his vocal instruction coaching you through the exercise as if you were taking his personal class in any of the many studios in which he teaches. There is also a separate text version of each exercise, with pictures, that explain how to perform each exercise.
You can select to view each video individually, or you can select to view the videos in sequence starting from the first video you select to see.
This Lite version only has 3 videos and accompanying text for the exercises below:
Beginning Exercises -
3. The Roll Up
Advanced Exercises -
13. The Open Leg Rocker
16. The Swan Dive
Now compiled for iOS5 which fixed crashes that were caused previously when running on an iOS5 device with the app not compiled for iOS5.
Ratings and Reviews
Clear video, glitchy though
The Advanced videos and their voice overs are clear and accurate. Can't get the text for any of these though--the app crashes every time. Same with Beginner. Makes me reluctant to try the paid full version. Work out the bugs first. Not ready for "prime time."
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
