Updated on September 16, 2012

Pilates

Pilates has become a popular workout nowadays. Since Pilates has become a well-known type of exercise, there had been a few celebrities that endorsed this workout. Looking at Pilates, you’d notice that it is very similar to yoga poses. That is because it is a combination of yoga, resistance training, and stretching that is involved in this workout. Pilates can help in developing lean muscles and improve posture therefore will make you look leaner and longer.

      Hi Cgull, I think Pilates is much more easier than yoga. It's more user-friendly, so to speak, for people who are starting out.
