Description

In Strength Training on the Ball, Colleen Craig shows readers of all fitness levels how to build strong bones, improve balance, and reduce fat while toning and defining the body. Combining the unique functions of the exercise ball with the endurance and flexibility benefits of Pilates-based strength training, Craig presents over 140 exercises using weights, balls, bands, and the body's own resistance. She introduces innovative work using two balls for developing core stability, the hallmark of the Pilates approach and a key to building a strong body and functional movement patterns. Her exercise variations make strength training safe for beginners, children, teens, and older adults and challenging enough for the experienced athlete.

Strength Training on the Ball is modeled after Craig's groundbreaking and bestselling works Pilates on the Ball and Abs on the Ball. Step-by-step instructions and photographs outline every exercise, and each chapter contains checkpoints to help readers set realistic yet motivating goals. Personal stories throughout the book illustrate how strength training can improve quality of life. The book concludes with three specialized strength-training workouts: a therapeutic workout for those recovering from injuries, a basic workout for beginners, and a challenging workout for athletes and gym enthusiasts.

COLLEEN CRAIG, author of the bestselling Pilates on the Ball and Abs on the Ball, is a certified Stott Pilates trainer and a writer. She lives in Toronto and teaches workshops worldwide.
