Description - Pilates by Ralf Meier
Fitness Headache, stiffness of the neck, backache - chronic pains belong to the main scourges of modern man. But there is a way out. All body parts of the human being are trainable until late in life. Joseph Pilates knew this already a hundred years ago. He developed the Pilates-system, in which muscles that are neglected in everyday life are strengthened, as well as those used in sports. They all have a great importance to well being. This is also the reason why Pilates is an ideal supplementary sport. The Pilates system has more than 500 exercises that build up on each other, from simple body awareness to highly specialized movements. The overall aim is to restore the perfect body balance, and the harmony of body, mind, and soul. "Pilates - Body Exercises" gives you insight into this effective system and presents highly varied workouts for training at home.
