From another post:
a little off topic but Ann that Pilates kicked my beer belly a-- and I'm not going back
Did you try it seriously? I'm an instructor. What do you mean, it kicked your butt? It should, but done properly, you should enjoy it - at least that's my experience
That's why I've stuck with it for ten years now, and became an instructor. It kicked my butt, my belly, my shoulders, all places that really needed it!
