    This is some great information, and I appreciate your point that Pilates is a good way to supplement a workout routine. I've started working out in the mornings, and I'm trying to get a solid routine going. I have some good cardio and weight training, but I don't have much to strengthen my core, so I'll definitely give Pilates a shot. Thanks for the great post! http://www.normajeanpilates.com/

    I really like how you said that, "requires mental focus, connects the mind and body, and truly does sculpt the abs like nothing else I've ever tried." I had no idea that this exercise can be so intense, but relaxing at the same time. My friend has been telling me to try this, but I didn't know anything about it. Thanks for sharing this article because I feel a lot better about trying it out.

    Thanks for the great post and for sharing these amazing tips! The fact that mat Pilates can be easily practiced at home with minimal equipment is a real plus but a high quality mat is an essential piece of equipment that will greatly increase the quality, enjoyment, comfort and results of your practice. From my own experience, Manduka makes some of the best exercise mats available at different price points and in a wide selection that work equally well for beginners to experienced practitioners.

    I am presently doing springboard pilates. I enjoy it very much. Do you have any recommendations about form or information about this?

    The world of Pilates is a whole new one for me as I discover its incredible benefits. Not only can it become your primary fitness regimen it complements other fitness workouts as well. I was introduced to the benefits of Pilates in an ebook The Benefits of Pilates www.pilatesbenefits.net

    Thanks for the great post about the benefits of Pilates. I've always found it to be the best of both worlds...body resistance and yoga. You'll get in great shape without bulking up so it's an amazing workout for women and the added benefits are the icing on the cake! I've been using the 45 Day Pilates Melt Down, a combo of mat Pilates and cardio that you can do at home, and have seen some great results.The program is structured to include all fitness levels so it's definitely worth a look for anyone who's interested in exploring the benefits of Pilates in more detail.

    When Pilates became generic - maybe 10 years ago; we have articles like this one.
    Unless you have been taught by an instructor who has the pre-generic training, you will never understand Joseph Pilates true approach.

    This is the reason Pilates has lost any traction with the public. It has been altered to the point of he absurd.
  • ALIZAHH try going on you tube and typing chair Pilates and see if you can find anything that might fit your needs. Even if you are not a senior yet you can type in chair Pilates for seniors also. They might have something that will not be as taxing on your elbow after surgery.
  • I am after elbow replacement and can not put weight on my right hand which I do getting on to a mat and off...Is there such a thing as chair pilates and where would I find out about that?
