A couple months ago they sent me their Portable Pilates Studio kit and I LOVE IT!!!

This is what the product box looks like when it came in the mail. 

It comes in two pieces. Super easy to put together!! 
Comes with DVD workout and poster. 

Then it looks like this! 

Menu Guide-thee are 4 sections to choose from.  

Section 1

Section 2

This was tough but felt GOOD!!! 

Section 3

Section 4

I included the dvd time with each clip because the dvd cover does not state how long the workouts are. I always have to know how long a workout is before I start it... :-) 

I thought since it was pilates, I wouldn't need shoes. I tried it briefly and then put my shoes on because I needed shoes because of the straps. The instructor and other girl are always wearing shoes so I recommend it. 

Having the bar helped tremendously with my pilates posture which was awesome!! The first segment was pretty easy for me but when I got to the second... wow... things got harder and I felt the burn!!! 
Now that I've used this bar, I enjoyed Pilates alot more and will be using this again!!  

The instructor supervised over the girl by showing how to do each move properly and explaining each step. She was very specific and went slow enough for me to follow along. I was pleasantly surprised with the instruction of the workouts.  

For the price, this is a great piece to add to your personal gym and its very portable and light!
