If you haven’t tried a pilate workout, you may be in for a treat.
Pilates would appear to be a relatively new exercise trend, but this system has been in existence since the 1920s. Pronounced "puh-LAH-teez," it is named after its developer, Joseph Pilates.
Pilates are much like yoga in that the exercises increase strength, flexibility and mobility, but you feel that you have really "worked out" following the exercises.
Most health clubs offer pilate options and there are many "pilate studios" that have crept up which specialize completely in pilate workout sessions.
