I’ve been interested in Pilates for a while now. I have two books on the subject but never seem to be able to follow the instructions. The movements seem so small and alien. I always wonder if I am doing them correctly.
When I was younger, I studied ballet for years. I still take a class now and then. So, I am determined to try Pilates, a favorite workout method of many dancers.
The promise of long, lean muscles finally won me over. I’ve invested in a Pilates bench. It’s made by Aero Pilates and comes with two instructional DVDs. The total cost including tax and shipping was about $450.
I’m still learning to use the machine and get comfortable with the movements. I’ll let you know how I progress.
If you are a fan of Pilates, please share your experiences with us.
