Pilates

 

One of my favorite classes to take at the gym is Pilates.  When I first joined my gym, group exercise classes made me nervous since I didn’t have any friends who went to the same gym who could come with me and most of the people in the classes are older.   One of the first classes I decided to take was Pilates and I have loved it ever since.

Since Pilates puts a strong emphasis on the core muscles, I feel like taking the class has helped with my balance and posture.  Unlike, aerobic classes,  you aren’t jumping around to make you sweat in Pilates.  Most of the time you are using your body weight or light weights in order to get a workout.

Here’s a link to an article about Pilates:
