You’ll need: mat, resistance band and small Pilates ball Level: Intermediate to advanced The owner of a renowned New York City Pilates studio, Erika Bloom knows how to deliver a deep-muscle workout for a longer, leaner more toned body. To be sure, though: The DVD doesn’t shatter any Pilates-lover stereotypes. Bloom does indeed speak in a breathy voice and, yes, there’s soft piano music playing in the background.

Customize your workout based on your needs or goals (you can target legs, abs, arms, hips and back), or try the pre-designed routines (30 minutes or one hour). Buy the DVD on Amazon.
