      According to the claims, you can lose a pants or dress size in 10 days guaranteed with the Malibu Pilates system. The system centers on their patented total body device or “chair”, and combines cardio and body sculpting all in one workout.

      My Malibu chair arrived nearly assembled. I only had to add the arm handles and springs, lock the legs in position, and then fold down the foot board. It was pretty simple and took approximately 10 minutes to do after the pieces were removed from the packing container. Once completed the chair takes up very little room and can be folded for easy storage.


      Essentially the makeover program consists of a variety of workout DVD’s using the chair, a ten day meal guide, and the recommendation of additional cardio exercise in the form of walk/running in predetermined amounts.

      On the upside, you can perform several exercises with the chair that target different muscle groups and helps fight the boredom associated with repetitive exercise machines. On the downside you’re out of luck if you don’t like the chair since you are required to spend 5 days a week using it in order to follow the makeover plan. Moreover, though the workout DVD’s are only about 20-30 minutes long, you still ...


      • have to add a walk, jog, or run to follow the plan exactly as described.

        As far as the meal plan is concerned, women are allowed to eat about 1200 calories while men are allotted 1400. At first glance this doesn’t seem bad until you actually see that the meal plan consists mostly of mushy oat meal, cottage cheese, salads, protein shakes, and all manners of tea. Okay, if you’re lucky, once in a while you get to have a pita sandwich. Honestly, in order to follow this meal plan you either have to have a steel will, or a strong stomach. Maybe in the short

        term you could shed some weight but who could eat like this indefinitely and how can you work out 5 days a week fueled by such miserable fare.

        Ultimately, it’s hard to recommend this product. The chair, though easy to assemble and use, has not impressed me in terms of its ability to provide tangible proof. I haven’t dropped a pants size or noticed any change in muscle mass, nor do I think I needed a machine that still has to be supplemented with a walk/running program. Their version of a meal plan was at best tasteless, and at times more punishing than the workouts themselves.
