5.0 out of 5 stars Great, straightforward book for working out on the ball, 31 July 2005
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ellie Herman's Pilates Workbook on the Ball: Illustrated Step-by-Step Guide (Paperback)
This book is portable, lightweight and easy to use. It is a clear and straightforward guide to many excerises using the swiss ball. I first came across Ellie Herman's teachings in her book "Pilates for Dummies" which I found surprisingly comprehensive. She covered a small chapter on ballwork in that book which inspired me to get this one. I was not dissapointed. This book will act as a great complement (and extension to the ballwork) covered in her other book, but is equally great as a standalone book focussing purely on using the ball. I found the instructions easy to follow and pictures clear to understand, though just wish they had of been in colour.
This book, though fairly slender is brilliant value for money, and its size and ability to stay open on the page you open it at make it a really accessible and useful book to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing book for every ball addict, 8 Nov. 2009

This review is from: Ellie Herman's Pilates Workbook on the Ball: Illustrated Step-by-Step Guide (Paperback)
As an experienced gym goer, I was looking for something more interesting to do with the ball rather than just standard crunches and leg lifts. This book is completely amazing. I only started using it four weeks ago but have already received many comments about how much more toned I look. It is really simple to use, the step by step illustrations telling you exactly what to do. As I had never done pilates before I found this very helpful. The dos and don'ts are great to, because they ensure that you maintain correct technique throughout each exercise and get real benefit from the exercises. A great book with plenty of different, graded exercises to help you keep your workout varied and interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Workout for Pilates Fans, 12 Jun. 2011

This review is from: Ellie Herman's Pilates Workbook on the Ball: Illustrated Step-by-Step Guide (Paperback)
I am a physiotherapy in private practice and also teach Pilates on the mat. I wanted to make it a bit more interesting and varied and therefore decided to start using gym balls. Excellent book for those who teach Pilates and have an understanding of how to do Pilates correctly (otherwise there is a danger of of back injury). I worked my way through the book and managed to do all the exercises but some are quite advanced. Pilates on the ball is fantastic but in my view it needs to be done under supervision of an experienced instructor or one has to be quite fit without any musculoskeletal problems.

Great book helps you do all the moves . If you cannot go to class a great help in showing you how to do all excercises well instructed and well packaged. Price good. Fully recommend.

This is a very thorough workout book with sound pilates principles. It is clearly illustrated and the directions are easy and quite fun to follow. If you are interested in doing home workouts, getting new ideas for your instruction classes I would highly recommend this book. Amanda de Chassart - pilates instructor
