What You Need to Know For Your First Pilates Reformer Class

Most people have heard about Pilates and its claim to increase stomach strength, build a body that is toned, lean, give you more flexibility, reduces stress, and even alleviates mild back pain. You know Pilates isn't just for dancers – I mean, come on, David Beckham even took it!

I encourage them to do this because I always walk around the room and give personal advice where I can.
