Pilates is one of the most popular recent trends in health and fitness. Exercises can be done on a mat or on any number of medieval-looking equipment designed specifically for Pilates, such as the reformer, Cadillac and Chair. Pilates helps to build a long and slender, but strong body with healthy muscle toning. Thanks alot.
