Everything about this tome by the leading Pilates authorities is official, marking it out as a severe, in-depth guide to the fitness system which produces lean bodies with structure muscle, tone and flexibility.
Unlike many fitness books (consisting of yoga), there is absolutely nothing superficial, glamorous or daunting about the visuals. Photos (from various angles) are intelligently supported up with additional diagrams where required, plus pictures of the relevant muscles. Guidelines are easy and surprisingly simple to follow.
In the beginning glimpse this could seem more like an instructor's handbook. After a detailed intro, it is divided into newbies, intermediate, innovative and prescriptions. On closer exam, with the big focus on descriptions of how various muscles work, and the degree of information, it is a cross between a medical and fitness handbook. Certainly to many the health advantages of Pilates will be an additional, welcome, surprise.
In the end, however, it is a crucial health guide, appealing both to hard-core Pilates fans in addition to newcomers. The last area (Prescriptions) on work, play, health as well as the performing arts, provides easy and important recommendations, as well as if you have never ever been to a Pilates training, you can benefit hugely. You are unlikely to ever sit or stand the same way once more with this book in your house!--Lorna V.
