I LOVE the ab one.
It depends on what you're looking for. I think my least favorite is the upper body one since I didn't really see results w/ that one. If you want an all over workout, the Accelerated Body Sculpting one covers all your basis and it's like 40 min or an hour long. The other ones that target specific areas are about 20-25 min long.

I think if you're new to this, you should get this
Amazon.com: WINSOR PILATES 3 DVD SET (BASICS Step-by-Step Workout + 20 MINUTE WORKOUT + ACCELERATED BODY SCULPTING WORKOUT): Mari Winsor: Movies & TV

the basic step by step actually teaches you how to do it more in detail which I think is quite important. that set gives you that one + a 20 min workout one which targets all areas for when you're short on time + the accelerated body sculpting one I was talking about.

Once you get familiar with the system, then branch out into the body specific ones. That I think is the best way to get introduced to this system.

no prob once you get the hang of it, you'll love it! It changed my body. I even grew an inch (well it's not technically growing since it's helping eliminate the spaces hidden between your disks in your spine ) and I have great posture due to pilates

well I don't do it anymore since I'm doing other stuff now (I'm taking a "power pilates" class twice a week which is like winsor but 3x harder ).. but back when I did it for a year and a half straight. I did it pretty much every single day. I started seeing results after doing it for 2 weeks or so (like they say you will in the dvds) and that really motivated me to do it whenever I had the chance. Moves I was struggling with in the beginning started getting easy so I started adding in all the dvds that targeted specific areas as well. I had lean toned abs and people I had known for years were suddenly commenting that they liked my waist line. You definitely tone up and you feel taller and you're always sitting or standing up straight without even you making a conscious effort to do so after a while.

The dvds say do the 20 min workout 3x a week and you'll see a difference in 2 weeks. I would start with that and start increasing the frequency (since you'll get used to it). Then maybe start doing the 40 min ones every other day? It all depends on you!
