sorry ,not a good book for a beginner
on 6 October 2003
I was really disapointed when i reviewed this book. First of all the photos are not clear, even though they are in full colour.Secondly, for a beginner to Pilates, the book seemed to be designed for "older" people who will be challenged by any kind of movement. A basic exercise "the hundred" appears in the advanced section. that to me is a way to warm up for the mat exercises and should not be in the advanced section. on the whole the routine was not very challenging and sequential to follow. I was waiting to find the "meat" in the book and could not find it. I was very disappointed and a much better book which I use is Ungaro's Pilates Body in Motion.That is the book to get i you are new to Pilates and want to be challenged as well NOT this book.
