The product, was as described. It is a basic primer on how to effectively use the Swiss Ball for health/conditioning. Pictures were especially helpful supplements to the written word. Well Done.
This book presents easy to follow instruction in ways to improve your physical health and appearance. Whether a beginner or an experienced exerciser "Swiss Ball" offers the reader simplified instruction, with illustration, on performing exercises that strengthen and condition your body. A side benefit of this book is personal confidence through a more relaxed demeanor and healthy appearance.
I bought this book about 2 months ago and I am still using it every other day. I have done free-weight exercises before but never with the ball. This is by far the best way. The pictures for each exercise are great because once I read through the instructions, now I can just look at the pictures and know what to do.
As a personal trainer, I am always looking for new ideas for my clients and this book has them. I like the way it is organized into levels and each level has several workouts. However, I did find that some of the easier levels have some "more difficult" exercises that are not appropriate for a beginner. The pictures and descriptions of the exercises are good. The workouts have 10 exercises covering all the major muscle groups. The exercises are good to use as planned by the book or to use for your own plan. It was a good buy!
I required new workouts following two back surgeries, and this book delivered. There are a few bits of information lacking, and some of the explanations could use some refinement. However, this is a good book overall. Research the "neutral spine" position before undertaking the workouts, you will acheive a better training effect. Never underestimate the Swiss Ball...
