5.0 von 5 Sternen I work out! 29. Mai 2014
Von YA Librarian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Once upon a time I had done Pilates. It was nothing professional, I saw a few moves in a magazine and did them. Fast forward a month 1/2 and I slipped on a pair of jeans that had been too tight. They fit with ease and I thought to myself this stuff works! And then I became lazy, stopped doing those moves, lost the paper and I don't fit into those jeans anymore. So I was excited to get this book.

The book is an odd shape. Its wide, but it has to be in order to give the reader all the information. When you open the book you will see the progression of moves. This could not be done in a normal sized book. As some have mentioned there are pieces of equipment that the book uses to show different moves. For those who do not have access to gym equipment there is a section for just a mat. Those pages are from 49-118. Prior to that it talks about enhancing the mind and body, alignment, posture and movement powerful Pilates practice I only had a mat so that is what I used.

The moves are broken down into : Fundamental, advanced and intermediate and master. There are variations to the workout. If you want something more intense you can try those.

The pictures in my book were black and white. When I took a peak into the virtual book on Amazon the pictures also appeared to be in black and white. I would have enjoyed color more, but this is really trivial and the black and white photos are fine. They are easy to look at and understand.

Overall I liked it and I think its a great book, but I can see that some may not like it because they do not have access to the equipment. Still, if you want to try some movies I think this book does an excellent job of describing what you need to do.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great value and well written 20. April 2014
Von Beth DeRoos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
From the Introduction: 'Pilates is for the elderly who cannot find an environment, equipment, or system suited to their needs. It is for the young who want to look and feel better. It is for the fit and the unfit who want to function at an optimal level,without pain. It is for people who seek balance in life, who want to change their lives for the better. Pilates in other words, is for anyone (but not necessarily for everyone). As long as there is an ambition to be better, a world of discovery and untapped potential awaits.'

Come on how often have you read where something is not necessarily for everyone? Honesty like that I admire.

Have been intrigued with the pilates concept for a few years, but turned off because we have a small home and there is no way we want a large piece of equipment many pilate segments require.

So I was so pleased to see the first 5 chapters and then pages 327-349 require no big pieces of equipment. Thus making this a good book for someone who wants to try some pliates but doesn't want to buy equipment.

Love the clean crisp font (typeface) which is so easy to read, and the photos are crisp and clear with the instructions for each movement being easy to follow.

Funny thing is I had looked at this book and a couple people knew I was thinking of buying the book, so not knowing this I picked it as a Vine choice, only to get another copy as a gift which I will pass on to someone else.

Oh and the price of the book is a great value considering how big the book is.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Impressive book that inspired me to purchase a Pilates machine. 26. Mai 2014
Von PT Cruiser - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I knew very little about Pilates before ordering this book, only what I read here and there in magazine articles. This book was perfect for me because it gives a straightforward explanation of Pilates, the theory behind it and why it works for people of all ages and different levels of fitness. This is a large, oversized book, 11" x 8-3/4" and it has nice quality black & white photos of each exercise, along with clear explanations and notes on form and position. It also has suggestions of imagery or visualizations for each. I found the imagery very helpful in performing the exercises. There are sections on alignment, posture, and movement with drawings and photos of different skeletal parts and how they should be aligned to get the most out of the program.

The first section of exercises are Mat Work which covers 70 pages with one or two pages dedicated to each exercise. These can be done by anybody with just a yoga or Pilates mat. The next section is the Universal Reformer exercises. 101 pages are devoted to this. These are done on machines such as these that Amazon carries: Stamina AeroPilates Pro XP556, Stamina AeroPilates Pro XP 557 Home Pilates Reformer with Free-Form Cardio Rebounder, Stamina AeroPilates Performer 286 without Rebounder, or Pilates Allegro(R) Reformer, 14-inch. Some in this section use additional props along with the reformer. When I started reading this section I remember thinking, "Who would ever buy such a big and unwieldy contraction?" But then reading about some of the exercises that can be done on this piece of equipment and how many parts of the body that can be exercised really inspired me. I especially liked some of the stretching exercises which can target certain muscle groups that aren't always easy to stretch on your own. So a week later I ended up ordering this machine from an Amazon seller which should arrive this week or next: Stamina AeroPilates 700 Premier Reformer with Stand, Cardio Rebounder, Neck Pillow and DVDs. It's going to involve squeezing it in to a 'just big enough' part of the exercise room and stepping over it to get to other parts of the room, so I hope it's worth it.

The next section of the book covers the Cadillac machine. It covers 41 pages of exercise. This machine is large and more oriented to a Pilates studio than a home but for anyone who attends classes, this section could be very helpful. There are also sections for other equipment like the Wunda Chair, Barrels, Ped-a-Pul, Arm Chair and Magic Circle. The Magic Circle is a piece of equipment that almost everyone would have space and budget accommodate. There are 10 pages of exercise for this. Amazon lists several versions: Stamina Pilates Magic Circle, ProSource Pilates Resistance Power Dual Gripped Fitness Ring, 14-Inch and STOTT PILATES Fitness Circle Lite Power Pack. The last section of the book covers sample exercise routines with just mat work or with a couple of the machines.

This book is clearly written and inspiring. Most of the exercises look like anyone could do them at one level or another. If you get this book, be sure to read the first sections before the exercises because it gives some really good information.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Love the pictures and the detail, just really wish it was spiral bound. 28. Mai 2014
Von M. Garrison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I love the pictures and the detail in this book -- reading through it after a Pilates class helps me "cement" what I've learned, and makes it easier to practice mat exercises at home, etc. Compared to the several other Pilates books I have acquired over the years, this one goes beyond just the mat exercises, though, and goes through exercises on all the main pieces of equipment. Thus far, every exercise I've ever learned in class has been in this book. The only significant downside for me is that I really, really wish the book was spiral bound. So often I read something and want to try a position, only to have to flop the book upside down or dog-ear a page, then try it, and then open the book back up again to check what I missed. Having a lay flat spiral binding would have added a lot to the book for me -- personally, I would have been willing to pay twice the price for that, as the book just isn't as functional without that. I would have rated this book 4.5 stars, but amazon makes me choose an integer.

I may end up getting the ebook version to have on my iPad, since that can stay open. :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Guide to Pilates for Beginners to Advanced 26. Mai 2014
Von Freudian Slips - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
As someone who has only dabbled in Pilates, I was afraid that this book might be too advanced for me. But not at all-- it's a very comprehensive guide which provides guidance for people at all levels. The book opens with a general explanation of Pilates including "movement principles": key awareness points for your posture, breathing, etc. It also includes a lot of information about correct posture and stance. Where the power really begins, though, is when the author takes you through various workouts. And here's what I like: while the book does cover how to use specific Pilates workout equipment (which presumably you would need to find at a gym or Pilates center), there are lots of workouts you can do just using a mat and some simple equipment.

The first workout, the Mat Foundation, is a great place for beginners to start. Even after one workout you will definitely feel tighter, more lifted, and more balanced. It's wonderful. All-in-all over 45 mat-based exercises are illustrated (along with instructions of proper imagery as you perform the exercise), providing a great workout you can do while watching TV if you'd like.

The next few chapters focus on exercises which require specific equipment, but then the book returns to a simple workout object: the Magic circle. You can purchase these almost anywhere that sells workout equipment. 10 different exercises using the magic circle are provided--- again, simple, and easy to learn.

This book has inspired me to look for local Pilates centers where I can try out the equipment-- but in the meantime, it's a great workout program.
