The ultimate at-home guide to strengthening, lengthening, and Toning Your Body - without machines.

A great resource for anyone who is wanting to get stronger, or get in shape. Detailed and easy to understand directions, as well as a history and a better understanding of what Pilates is, and why it's good to know. Clear pictures, and alternate difficulties for those just starting, intermediate, and advanced so you can always practice at your comfort level. ( )

Love it. Brooke believes in PIlates and has developed a way to make it a part of your daily life. Her illustrations are great and complement the models' demonstration of the moves. A DVD isn't necessary, and you get to work at your own pace, a definite advantage over classes and videos. According to Brooke never do more if you can't do it properly. This book got me excited about pilates, and if she does do a DVD I'm standing in line to buy it. ( )
