Pilates and Your workout

Pilates has been around for a while.  It is not as exotic sounding as Zumba, but it is more than just a set of exercises.  This website has lots of mini sites that tell you about different kinds of pilates exercises. Pick a few and try them out at home and if turns out for you, then go to a Pilates studio and work on!
