Author: Joseph H. Pilates
Brand: Joseph Hubertus Pilates

First published in 1934, this new reprint of Your Health includes Joseph Pilates’ early Twentieth Century philosophies, principles, and theories about health and fitness. He bases his work on the concept of a balanced body and mind, drawing on the approach espoused by the early Greeks. While some of his personal philosophies reflected early 20th Century viewpoints, his athletic and fitness doctrines were years ahead of his time. Readers will learn his observations and conclusions about people's approach to physical fitness. He describes the results of decades of scientific study, experimentation and research into the variety of troubles and ills that upset the balance of body and mind. Pilates makes extraordinary claims about the benefits of his defined science of "Contrology" and very specifically defines this science for all to read and understand. In this book, he exemplifies and clarifies the beneficial impact of his work.

The Red Thread: The Integrated System and Variations of Pilates - The Mat

The Red Thread: The Integrated System and Variations of Pilates - The Mat Lowest new price: $395.00
Lowest used price: $345.00
List price: $395.00
Author: Kathryn Ross-Nash
Brand: Ingramcontent

The Red Thread: The Integrated System and Variations of Pilates - The Mat gives to you over 35 years of experience in the Pilates Method Mat in one book. The book not only instructs how to execute the goal of each exercise, but how to build with variations and challenge each exercise, preparing the body for the next exercise to come. The book explains how and why to choose a variation to suit the needs of the student. It includes a comprehensive look at the connection between not only the Prior Exercise and the "Thread" that binds them, but the "Thread" that runs through the link between the Spinal Function of the exercise's predecessor. The book includes the purpose of each exercise, which enables you to "break it down" so the Purpose remains unchanged and the Method preserved. The Red Thread: The Integrated System and Variations of Pilates - The Mat offers Teachers tips on how to spot, what to look for, the Don't, Do's and Major Benefits of the exercise. The 1400 plus photos are taken both from the traditional vantage point and from the Teacher's view. The Pilates Method is also presented in easy to read Charts. These Charts breakdown, in simple form, what to "Add Next". This will enable you to create a perfect workout to strengthen what is weak and challenge what is strong. The Charts offer a multitude of vantage points to build the work from. These include Spinal Functions and cover a vast range of injuries. "My hope is that The Red Thread: The Integrated System and Variations of Pilates - The Mat will give both the Teacher and the Student insight into the Method we know as Pilates, the tools you need and elicit critical thinking. I hope it gives the insight needed to understand that the Pilates Method is NOT just a list of exercises and why, at each level of the work, one exercise follows another. The Red Thread: The Integrated System and Variations of Pilates - The Mat presents an understanding that this Method is NOT black and white, but a beautiful colorful canvas as unique as the body before you."

The Complete Book of Pilates for Men: The Lifetime Plan for Strength, Power & Peak Performance

The Complete Book of Pilates for Men: The Lifetime Plan for Strength, Power & Peak Performance Lowest new price: $9.97
Lowest used price: $1.27
List price: $19.99
Author: Daniel Lyon
Brand: imusti

A comprehensive, take-anywhere exercise program designed to improve men's strength, flexibility, balance, and posture

Have years of office work wreaked havoc on your posture? Could your tennis or golf game use a boost? Do you appear or feel older than your age? Or do you carry yourself in a manner that expresses strength, power, and peak performance to everyone around you?

In recent years, Pilates has become a popular exercise program, especially among women. Many books on the subject show lithe female bodies stretched across their covers. Top Pilates instructor Daniel Lyon Jr. aims to break the preconception that Pilates only benefits and appeals to women. "This couldn't be further from the truth," he asserts. "Joseph Pilates was a cigar-smoking boxer, acrobat, and gymnast, and he developed his exercise program from that background for men first." Likewise, Lyon designed this book specifically with men in mind, as the number of male Pilates practitioners -- among them professional athletes, actors, businessmen, and other high-profile personalities -- has rocketed to about three million and continues to grow.

For athletes, working stiffs, and men recovering from injuries, Lyon offers the first comprehensive exercise program of its kind. He walks you through forty "traditional mat" exercises and more than sixty "reformer on the mat" exercises -- each one brilliantly illustrated -- in an inspiring self-guided program that adapts to all experience levels and requires nothing more than floor space, an exercise mat, and the desire to look and feel your best. Using the Pilates method of engaging the strongest parts of the body, or the "powerhouse" (Joseph Pilates's term for the abdominals, hips, lower back muscles, and buttocks), and integrating all other body parts from this core, Lyon's program targets trouble spots for men and helps them achieve strong, lean, masculine physiques.

The Complete Book of Pilates for Men will deliver quick and long-term results to any man who seeks optimal fitness and a competitive edge in all aspects of his life.
