I have always loved to workout with different modalities including Pilates. After a back injury, I could no longer do high impact exercise or running so I decided to do Pilates and Yoga exclusively. I bought the reformer and for the last couple of months I've used it pretty much daily.
the Magic Circle isn't magic at all it takes dedication and determination and once you managed that, then the work begins the Pilates Magic Circle is durable construction the workout DVD well mine had corrupted playback issues but, the fine people at Overstock replaced the DVD upon request and it arrived within 3 days so now I have the Magic I need and the instruction to use it. Watch out body there's a workout coming your way.
I have been using a yoga pad for years, but my bones are getting old and tired, so I decided to try this mat because it had some thickness to it...and it does!! It has just enough padding so that I don't feel as if I'm on the bare floor but not too much that I slip around when sweaty. I use it on my area rug, and it does not move at all. It is a thin, oriental rug, so that may make the difference. But I did read at least one review that said it slipped on her rug - that was NOT my experience. I highly recommend this exercise mat to anyone who does pilates, yoga, stretching...I even stand on it when doing resistance training! I'm putting it through its paces and its standing up well.
