There was a set of three Guthy-Renker videos (originally VHS but also released on DVD) that used a band:

-Power Sculpt Buns & Thighs, 21 minutes (I have a copy)
-Power Sculpt Abs, 15 minutes
-Power Sculpt Advanced, 48 minutes

Collage rated the first two as Intermediate, and the last one as Intermediate/Advanced.

Maximum Burn Basics and Fat Burning were released together on one DVD. I actually did a VF review of this one. I no longer have the DVD, though. Per my review, Maximum Burn Basics is a 20-minute pilates workout which incorporates a pair of light dumbbells. Fat Burning is a 35-minute cardio routine (including warmup and cooldown) followed by 10 minutes of traditional (non-weighted) pilates matwork. The two workouts are separately chaptered on the start menu. I don't know if these were released on VHS.

Pat - when you know what titles you need, please let me know - either on this thread or by PM - what you need to complete your collection. For whatever reason, the last month or so my local second hand store has been absolutely awash in Winsor Pilates stuff, ranging from the very old to some fairly new stuff. No guarantees that's still the case, or it will continue, but if you let me know what you need I could swing by and pick up any you don't have. They're only $2 each, and in slim line cases that probably would be fairly cheap to ship.

Wow thank you for the replies, both public and private - I have to start dinner now but will get all my ducks in a row and reply tomorrow!

I went on Marketplace and have the stability ball workout and the back care one on the way. :)

I might have a duplicate of one of the workouts in this series - i'll PM you.

Mari has somewhat grown on me over the years. I don't always reach for her for pilates (I prefer other instructors) but I occasionally go back to her Abs and the Buns/Thighs one (both w/ and w/o the band sets).

I remember getting her original 3-disc G-R set. then I traded it because I just didn't like how she does everything at lightning speed.

I acquired the add-ons to the original set - the Abs, the Buns/Thighs. with these, she goes slower, which suits me better.

then on craigslist, a seller sold me a huge mother lode of winsor - the original series, the band series, the circle series, etc plus the gadgets (ball, ring, band). I kept the band (it's excellent and lasted me a long time), the men's workout and the back workout, and sold everything else on ebay for a great price.

then later on, I read raves about the band series for Abs and the Buns/Thighs one, so eventually I acquired those from thrift stores. I also bought the other 2 band workouts at a library sale.

her books are pretty good - especially the pregnancy pilates book. it was one of the first of its kind back in the mid 90s. I followed all of her suggestions on incorporating pilates during pregnancy.

+1 on this! I'm with Eibhinn--don't know why, but at one time or another, I've seen (ok, and acquired!) pretty much all of Mari's w/o's from my local Goodwill's. I love trolling for w/o's, so include me if you pm or post your "need" list!

Jeannine - good idea to collect the books too! And I had forgotten all about the "Endless Fitness" series.

I'm having a sort of Winsor Renaissance - even Mari's "bad" videos give me good results. I have a very cranky spine and it just loves Mari's videos - I can't explain it! Something about her is just endearing to me, as well.

After all - my original G-R set led me to find this wonderful website. :love:

I agree with this! I had a Winsor Renaissance back in the spring, and really enjoyed it! Plus, her mat workouts pair *very* nicely with the SP! :love:
