  1. Don't be fooled. This workout is tough. I've been working with other pilates programs, and Perfect in Ten Pilates is not 100 percent beginner. It's got quite a lot of tough moves, such as the side plank, done quite fully.

    With Pilates, you won't feel the cardio kind of burn. But it's still an extremely effective exercise and I'm finding benefits within a few weeks. Quicker than I ever have with yoga, though yoga is a more whollistic exercise. Actually we Indians believe it's a whole way of living.

    One point though: you have to do pilates accurately for there to be any effect. With many exercises that I scoffed at in the beginning because they didn't seem like they were tiring me out at all, I found I could feel the muscles working only after many days of doing the exercise.
