Pilates is fantastic, but you have to make sure you get a reputable teacher, etc. In it's 'true' form it's great, but it's become such a fad lately that you have to watch out. Is Winsor a form, program, or a machine?? If it's a machine, I wouldn't buy one without learning more about Pilates first. Not that it would help you with the physicality of it, but you could do an internet search for 'Joseph Pilates'. The closer to the originator's program, the better.
(edit) Darn! Tried to add to this and goofed. Anyway, I did a search for Winsor Pilates, and it looks alright. I'd be willing to bet it's not nearly as great as it is professed to be, though. I'm a bit iffy about exercise videos of any kind, especially yoga and Pilates, because there isn't anyone there to help you if you're doing something incorrectly. I'd buy it as a beginner, but for anything beyond that I'd find a good class! I've always been dissappointed by videos.
Sorry if I sound as if I'm spouting my opinions as fact! I just have definite ideas concerning Pilates, as it's often used in a dancer's training
