So my wife has a pilates DVD system that is just laying around (she decided p90X and insanity was what she wanted to do) and I'm thinking about taking it up. Granted I'm very familiar with correct technique and posture while knowing my own limitation and have touched into yoga and some pilates I think training off the DVD is not going to be a dangerous endeavor. I'm looking for something to do as a core routine everyday, part of a morning "wake up" or couple hours before bed "cool down" sort of thing to do and Pilates seems to be something that could be part of this. I'm looking to really strengthen my core for Boxing and beyond the normal situps/crunches routines am looking for something a bit different. With that said, does anyone have experience with doing pilates that could give me insight on to why this may be a good or bad idea out of personal experience? The video is "Pilates for weight loss" by Elise Watts so it's geared towards women, which makes me happy because I'll get to watch a hot chick on the video while I'm suffering : P. If anyone has done her video series a review on it would be great!
