You are about to learn the exercises that I have been experimenting and testing on my own clients for over 12 years.
These back and joint exercises have been found to be most beneficial in relieving back and joint pain from activities of daily living, or even from degenerative conditions in the spine and from arthritis.
The new revised Pilates Ebook offers you 30 more detailed pictures and modifications on the Classic Exercises along with Pilates Principles and Standing Posture and Balance Exercises.
If you have been trying for years to overcome painful back and joints and have been doing the wrong back and joint strengthening exercises then you need to try the exercises in this Pilates Ebook.
Pilates is a corrective, rehabilitative form of exercise that was developed for just that purpose; to improve our body’s functioning by bringing it back into a natural state.
Proof that it is possible to do Pilates and benefit from it at every age; if you start at the correct level and progress gradually.

Hello! My name is Jennifer Adolfs M.S.S., and I am the founder of the website www.Pilates-back-joint-exercise.com.
I am an advanced mat and equipment certified Pilates Instructor through the PhysicalMind Institute, they have progressed Pilates original work and believe in training people in the neutral spine technique.
It takes into account the natural curves of the spine and strengthens them in this state allowing the body to function naturally and without pain.
I am also certified through the American Council on Exercise as a Clinical Exercise Specialist and have worked extensively with special populations to rehabilitate spine and joint, as well as other health related conditions.
Working as an Exercise Specialist for over 12 years I have found the benefits of regular exercise, particularly weight-bearing exercise and the amazing results, especially for my senior clientele.
Their mobility and strength have improved dramatically which, in turn, assists in their independent living.
All my clientele were functioning well and getting stronger and staying healthy and injury free, but some were still experiencing pain and stiffness in their back and joints.
Most of these aches and pains can be attributed to degenerative spine conditions and arthritis that seem to be inevitable as we age, but I still did not like the fact that they were hurting.
I developed and led classes adjusting and modifying as needed for different populations and health conditions.
Students were able to perform these exercises without feeling the pain and stiffness later; they actually felt energized after the classes.
The classes kept advancing and progressing to benefit everyone, no matter how fit or de-conditioned they were.
I started incorporating the fundamentals of these Pilates Ebook exercises into my client’s workouts, involving the breathing and core stability while they were performing their lifts.
At the end of the workouts we’d finish with some stretching and core exercises and they promptly stopped complaining about being stiff and sore later. They actually had more energy for the rest of their day.
Through trial and error I gradually developed an extensive repertoire of exercises that I found to be most beneficial for bone and joint conditions. This is what I have compiled in my Pilates Ebook here for you all.
We spend our whole lives using our bodies, or should I say "abusing" our bodies. The normal and sometimes abusive wear and tear contributes to much of our back and joint pain later in life.
Pilates exercises, when performed correctly, and with the proper time devoted to the fundamental movements getting to the core of our bodies, can help to realign the spine and bring our bodies back to a more healthy functioning.
