Author Judd Robbinsabout this book: When I first certified as a Pilates' instructor, almost no one had an original copy of Joseph Pilates' original book of exercises. It had been out of print since 1945. After trying out a class in Chicago in 1993, I knew this was a great program and an effective training regiment. I came home to the San Francisco Bay Area and immediately began certification training with the PhysicalMind Institute in the matwork of Joseph Pilates.

Three years later, in 1996, I began using the Internet and created the website to specialize in all information related to Pilates exercises and teachings. I began reading all the books out there, and viewing all the videos out there, and put my reviews on that website.

In 1998, I was still frustrated at not being able to actually read the out-of-print books written more than sixty years earlier by Joseph Pilates. In 1998, I researched the existence of his original books, found them, edited them, obtained the copyrights to them, and republished them. His second book, Return to Life through Contrology, was his book of 34 iconic and 'Classical' fundamental exercises.

My company has been offering his original books for sale around the world since 1998. In this work, you will find his original writings, words, photographs, and his unparalled and complete first exercise program!
