I tried Pilates, and it was much harder than I ever thought it would be

Pilates doesn’t exactly look like much of a workout. But I went to a class at New York Pilates, and let me assure you: It was a challenge.

According to Pilates Method Alliance, more than 11 million people practice the low-impact, total body workout.

After only one session, my entire body was sore. I worked muscles I didn’t realise were out of shape. Days after the class, it was still hard to climb the stairs.
