Pilates For Beginners by Katherine Corp and Kimberly Corp

51ORbD-OR7L._SX260_I got into Pilates when I picked up a video that combined Yoga and Pilates together. I enjoyed the higher intensity (at the time) of Pilates and found it meshed well with the lower intensity and flow of Yoga. Since then, my husband has started doing Pilates. We like the focus on the core you get from this type of workout.

We’ve both been doing Pilates enough to feel like we’re no longer beginners, but we’re still new to this type of fitness. Because of that, I figured a book on Pilates that was geared toward the beginner would be a great addition to both our home library and our workout reference materials.

I like that there are plenty of pictures in this book so you can see what you’re supposed to be doing. However, it’s also rife with words – so you get to read the step-by-step instructions to ensure you’re doing each move correctly.

Even if you have some Pilates videos, or follow along with classes online, this book is still beneficial to you. Why? Well, aside from walking you through the basic moves of this workout regimen, Pilates For Beginners also includes some useful information that will help you do it right!

My favorite parts of the book are the visualizations and the precautions. The visualizations let you know how to picture your body to help you properly do each move (like picturing yourself as a tree…). The precautions let you know if this is a safe position for you to take or not depending on health conditions and other factors.

This is an A+ book, and it would make an excellent gift for the newly fitness-minded person in your life!

I received this book free from the publisher, and this is an honest and unbiased review.
