Why supermodels love Pilates

Supermodels undergo rigorous diet and fitness regimes to sculpt their perfect bodies. However, they prefer to maintain long and lean figures and make a point to avoid certain exercises that aim to build bulk. 

A popular approach to maintaining a lean model figure is Pilates, which was developed in the early 20th century by gymnast and circus performer Joseph Pilates. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Hannah Ferguson invited us to a private Pilates class at Elev8NYC.
