Pilates Perfect: The Complete Guide to Pilates Exercise at Home

You never thought you would see a review for an exercise book in SLUG, did you? Especially one on an exercise craze sweeping the nation: Pilates. But Diane Daniels’ book on Pilates is right on target. I don’t exercise as much as I should, and when I saw this book in SLUG’s illustrious library, I thought it would be a perfect time to get in shape and find out whether an exercise regime like Pilates actually worked. I set to work reading the book and getting myself ready to pilate. I was skeptical at first about whether such a vehicle of exercise even turned out results, but I still did it every day for about 30 minutes. As of this writing, I don’t see much improvement, but I do see some: I feel my general overall health is a bit better, my abs feel firmer, and my buns are like sturdy plastic. The book comes recommended to those who want the health benefit of exercise, but don’t have time to do heavy-duty exercise or just don’t plain want to. Remember, though, that exercise alone doesn’t get you into shape––it also requires laying off the Zingers. –Erik Lopez
