Meet the Author


At the beginning of the First World War, Joseph Pilates was imprisoned in England along with many Germans who happened to be living at the time in and around Lancaster, England. He was a German national who had been boxing and performing in England prior to 1914. While living in the Camp, he taught other residents the series of exercises that he had developed for personal use over the preceding decades both in Germany and in England. His own exercise sets drew strongly from his studies of yoga and Zen, as well as ancient Roman and Greek exercise regimens.

    Historical-Great for instructors, not for pilates newbies

    This book is a valuable piece of history. Absolutely necessary and fascinating to the pilates instructor or intermediate-advanced enthusiast. Those who are new to pilates will prefer books by Brooke Siler or Alycea Ungaro.

    Does Not BLOW

    Joseph Pilates was an ingenious man, and I have lost a great deal of weight, as well as becoming toned and feeling great.

    Knowledge

    Sometimes life changes take time and patience. Pilates is a terrific way to get in shape but not recommended for an obese user. Once you have changed your eating habits, not by diets but lifestyle change. Try this method. It will change your life. Dr Atkins fails to give you information on the risks involved with his diet. I advise you to read up on that!
