    Balance on the Ball combines the smooth, controlled movements of Pilates with the instability of a ball to provide a fun, challenging workout for people at all levels of fitness. Black-and-white photographs clearly illustrate over 100 exercises, focusing on core stabilization, muscle tone, and flexibility. Each exercise provides helpful tips for maintaining optimal form and alignment, modifications or advanced variations, and a list of muscle groups used. As the first book to integrate stability ball training with the Pilates method, Balance on the Ball explains how the principles of Pilates”breathing, concentration, centering, precision, control, movement flow and rhythm”are integral to exercising on the ball. The author emphasizes correct alignment and the quality of movement rather than the number of repetitions or speed at which they are performed. These essential concepts may be incorporated into the rest of your fitness routine, as well as into your daily life, for a greater sense of harmony and balance.

      I have been going to physical therapy for a year for back and neck issues due to a genetic condition. I have progressed so well, and needed a new challenge. this book, and the book on BOSU ball exercises has given me many options to change up my routine for home PT and exercise. Some of these are fun to do...others very challenging. I take the book with me to PT, I pick a couple of new exercises, (or some of my fellow patients pick them as long as the PT approves them doing them) to do something new to the mix. We all learn something new, try a new exercise that may target a new muscle group, and have fun experimenting with it.

      This is a great book for someone (like me) looking for excercises to do on the ball that would supplement other fitness activites. What I really liked is that the exercices are ranked in terms of difficulty, so you can progress along, or start at a higher level. Also, there a lists of complete routines based on difficulty. Great book!
