    I've recently started doing Pilates.

    I do so biweekly for an hour in the morning and absolutely love it. It is hard work, but I love working on my abdomen and rear for most classes. I am certainly not the best, but being one of the younger "students" means I do some of the harder positions. I am so glad I joined...

    Windsor Pilates

    A few years back, I lost a lot of weight doing Windsor Pilates, a DVD set I bought from an infomercial.  Somewhere down the line, I lost the DVD set.  But, now that I've decided to get back on my exercise regimen, I bought it again online.  Even after the first...

    Pilates Works

    I do some form of Pilates every day.

    Mostly it's with Mari Windsor. Feels so good and gets me in an awesome state of mind. Plus it's only 20 minutes.

    I am thankful for this.

    It has prevented me from falling deep into depression or extreme melancholy. Those moments when I have a surge of high negative energy which leaves me feeling heavy on my feet and sluggish in my ways. Those controlled movements and breathing shakes the burden off me. I come out...

    Improves Sexual Performance

    It is a simple fact of life that as men age, their libido diminishes. Lots of guys wish there was more they can do, and will pursue pharmaceutical products like Viagra to improve their sex lives. I've tried that product, and it didn't do too much for me. Then about 8 months ago...
