REVIEW

I like this book, however, curiously, of the hundreds of black and white photos of models performing exercises, only one includes an actual Pilates machine (aka "Reformer").  There are photos of models exercising on rowing machines, stationary bikes, eliptical machines, treadmills, and stair-steppers, but demonstrations using Pilates equipment are noticeably absent.

So, if you buy this book, expect to get a resource that demonstrates a variety of exercises that would provide total-body fitness.  It is simply packed with photos and dozens and dozens of specific exercises.
