Pilates is an increasingly popular form of exercise practiced by millions every day. While many people believe that Pilates offers a gentle, low-impact workout the truth of the matter is that the exercise requires a both mobility and stability. As such, care should be taken before starting this (or any) exercise regimen. Conditioning is a vital part of any workout, and all Pilates participants should seek guidance to determine their level of fitness in order to avoid injury. Of course, all sports and exercise programs may lead to sore muscles and aching joints.
