I actually had a client refer me to this book. I have a number of core training and ball training books- but didn't have this one. I was surprised to find so many exercises and variations which I had not seen in my other books, particularly for developing balance and symmetry. The book has clear illustrations, an easy to follow reference system, and some nicely put together workout routines with easy to follow thumbnail photos of the exercises. I think it's a great start for someone looking to get the most out of their exercise ball. Although, for weight loss you would need to add a much more intense cardio and weight training component to your program.

I ordered this book for the price, and because I like the layout, and exercises are clearly demonstrated and explained. I would like more details on muscles worked with each exercise, but there is enough here to plan a good full body routine. It's nice to have a good reference to mix things up.

HASH(0xa00f7b54) out of 5 stars More exercises for the ball, but not all fat burning June 2 2006
By Deb Nam-Krane - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book follows up Liz Gillies' 101 Ways to Workout on the Ball. I have gotten so much use out of that book and really enjoy cardio on the ball that I snapped this one up as soon as I saw it was available. Going with the assumption that there would be a lot of cardio, I was disappointed when I realized that there are only 27 moves that the author classifies as cardio, and some of those are "cardio cooldown". The bulk of the book is 61 strength-training moves (followed by 13 stretch moves). It does mention "body-sculpting moves" in the subtitle, but I do find it a little bit misleading even though the author explains that you need muscle to burn fat continuously.

Still, this is not a bad book. While the Gillies book has a lot of functional fitness/Pilates- and dance-based moves, this book is, I think, geared more toward a traditional weight-lifting crowd (although there are some Pilates-based moves included). It makes a nice compliment to the other book, and I've already gotten a good bit of use from it. In addition to using the ball as a bench that you are either prone or supine on, there is also a good bit of work done with the ball against the wall, which I haven't seen in too many other ball books. Also, although not overflowing with cardio moves, the ones she does include are dancy and fun (mambos, step touches, grapevines, etc.). She also includes ten workouts, ranging from 5 minutes to 60, to allow you to get total body and parts workouts.

This shouldn't be your only fat-burning guide, but it will give some ideas.

Book is great. Love all the cardio moves. Lots to get you going. She seems to know her stuff being a personal trainer/ exercise instructor. There are some new strength training moves too. Good Stretching section. Like how she puts the workouts together. Can see myself adding in one of her five- minute targeted workouts into my exercise routine to change things up.

HASH(0xa00f7e84) out of 5 stars Good reference for swiss ball workout Aug. 18 2010
By Joan Bennett - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for a book with some different moves on the ball to incorporate into my workout. This book was a pleasant surprise. It has some cardio but also some excellent strength/toning moves. I actually used it yesterday with a friend. We warmed up then used the chapter on strength/toning and had a great workout. We used the stretches in the book to cool down. I have used this book in combination with other workout books that I own. I'm thinking about taking the pages out, slide them into plastic sleeves and then put into a three ring notebook. I have done this with other books and it works great in creating a workout routine.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoy all the ideas in this book - the pages are filled with pictures in full color. I love the stretches I've learned to do with the ball - my favorites are: Back Extension, p. 41 (see picture) & Open Chest Stretch, p. 122. The exercises where you hold the ball and twist really do something as I feel the soreness for days in my sides/hips. I won't do the ones where you lie on your back, feet in the air with ball between your feet and lower legs. If you look at my other reviews you'll see I can have a hip problem from certain exercises after giving birth to my boys in my 30's. So, I decided to stay away from exercises like this. They look like they could have some amazing results though. I haven't done every exercise in this book as I also use a few other ball exercise books so I swap back and forth.

I recommend you add this to your collection and just do a few exercises a week from it.

I was eyeing this book a long time but couldn't justify myself because I had Gillis' book and the core workout on the ball book (both I like) until I broke down and just bought it.

I am so glad I did! Many of the moves are fun, dancy type of moves that are a joy to do. There are lots of exercises in here that I have not seen in the other books. I really feel good doing them.

I didn't need another book or video for workouts on the ball...but still. I am so glad I got this. All the exercises are stretches. So worth it.

Thank you Elizabeth!
