New Katalin Zamiar video coming July 18th: Method Pilates Fusion

It looks like the Method is releasing a new Pilates workout on July 18th featuring Katalin Zamiar of kickboxing fame. It is entitled "Method - Pilates Fusion & Pilates Dance Blend" and will run around $10.88 at DeepDiscountDVD.com.

I'm wondering if it will be a compilation workout since Katalin never stayed on the beat with her kickboxing workouts. Although she did a great job in the Method Stability Ball workout, what a beautiful outdoor production.

Did anyone ever try Katalin's Method Standing Pilates Blend workout? Apparently she teaches this one in a bikini (!) and it's mostly ballet-like standing leg balance work... This one might have been available in Ross stores, I know I have seen several of the newer Method DVDs there.

There was a thread on Method Standing Pilates Blend a few months back and I was in the minority in finding it a thoroughly enjoyable workout. The "bikini" is more of a two piece, it's not cheesey, IMO. I found it appropriate to the setting.

This one sounds interesting, thanks for the head's up.

The "Pilates principals" on the back cover jumped right off the screen at me. Argh! I wish someone would proofread the text on DVD covers!

The workout itself sounds interesting, though.

Thanks for giving us a link to the back cover. I see at the bottom it says, "Formerly known as Standing Pilates Blend."

Oh my, I can't believe I didn't catch that - thanks Sharon! Great detective work. It *does* say it's a re-release of the Method Standing Pilates Blend.

Whew, I just bought Standing Pilates Blend at Ross today for $5.99, so you saved me some $$$ preordering a duplicate, doh!

It is so disturbing that companies keep relabeling and re-releasing and renaming old workouts! The Method series is still on TV, why can't they just tape some new shows, hack together the episodes without the commercials and sell them to make some new fresh money?

Sheesh.

I had a feeling this would be the case. "Pilates fusion" is a much more trendy phrase than "standing pilates", isn't it.

You ladies are absolutely fantastic in spotting that - I didn't bother to look at the back cover.

Threads like this justify my annual VF pledge.

I'm so glad you mentioned this was a repackage, SharonH. I would have ordered it and been upset to have a duplicate workout. I was drawn by the fusion title.
