As an aerobics instructor I have looked at many new forms of exercise to renew my interest in sculpting my body. Having read this book and taken the time to perfect the technique I can truely say that this publication will become your bible to transforming your body and your perception of your physicaly self.
Well written with excellent step by step pictures to ensure correct form for maximum effect. Can't say enough about this technique and the introduction this publication provides.

I found the book well written and easy to understand. The demonstrations remind you what you were learning in the class room and so the book is a great companion when doing your homework!

Format: Paperback
Many of us know the difficulties of trying to learn Pilates exercises from books, but this one has very clear photographs, and useful boxes of information to back up the general directions. It is good to feel this comes direct from Alan Herdman who has taught so many Pilates teachers. I found the self-assessment section useful, and the pictures of studio equipment slightly scary, but no doubt very useful if I ever manage to get to a proper Pilates studio.

Alan H is the master in Pilates in the UK...forget Lynne Robinson...sorry but she bores me to tears..Alan has wit, humour and his knowledge of the human body is truly remarkable..this book and his others are a must and if you get a chance to attend a workshop of his, then go, truly worth it!
