My girlfriends said I am a couch potato, which is so true! As of today, I am coming out as a girl who never does exercise. My normal routine included the exercise I would get walking from the couch to the refrigerator and back, and up and down the stairs to go to bed. In their case, they practice Pilates at least twice a week, but they consider Pilates to be part of their daily life because after awhile they no longer just practice Pilates - they live it! They are reporting their wonderful experiences on health benefits of Pilates, the transformation of being, taking you beyond the here and now.

Joseph Pilates, the inventor of Pilates once said that anyone who is stiff and out of shape at 30 is old, while someone who is supple and strong at 60 is still young. Retaining suppleness and core strength is vital for anti aging health and Pilates is probably the best anti aging exercise you'll find. Anyway, here are some of the benefits of Pilates:

* Improves the way your body looks and feels
* Refreshes your mind and body with the help of some non-strenuous workout
* Learns about the correct body posture and the importance of maintaining one
* Learns to control body movements and follow a proper breathing schedule.
* Increases the strength of stabilizer muscles
* Helps in developing a flat abdomen and a strong back
* Strengthens your core like no other exercise
* Prevents you from future injuries

Well, the benefits of Pilates are innumerable. In looking for a studio, choose a place that is relatively free from distractions, the place should be quiet, clean and well ventilated. You might want to check out Yoga Boston, the first Pilates Studio in Boston and the first GYROTONIC® studio in New England which offers the finest, most effective, cutting edge developments in physical exercise. Their team of dedicated instructors is fully certified and experienced in working with each client's unique needs. Go and check it out!

Oh by the way, did you know that Paris Hilton keeps her body sleek and toned with regular one-hour Pilates sessions? She once said, "I don't have to lose weight but I just wanted to look really good. I started doing Pilates." It's clear that her efforts are paying off!
