I saw a small write up in one of the lattest Vello's. This is something I've been practicing for the last 10 months. Any one else?

I'd probably benefit from it, but I'm SO stiff I can barely do it, and stretching is so tedious to me that I just give it up and go ride instead (I know, I know...). But my wife's been doing Pilates for several months and thinks she's fitter than she's been in years. She looks forward to the sessions and feels good when she comes home.
Doesn't appeal to me, but then she can't understand why I just want to go for another boring bike ride.

I've been thinking about trying pilates, but I really do not enjoy being at the gym. I certainly understand your preference. My wife insisted I go to the gym with her, the only thing that seemed interesting to do was to ride an exercycle. After about a week I thought I could get a real bike and ride outside, enjoying the great scenery my area has to offer, and not sit here stewing in my own juices. So I did, four years ago. She's quit the gym I'm still riding, on track for 3000 miles this year.

The cool thing is you can do it at home. After you get the routine down it takes about 25 minutes.

Nope, but i do yoga a couple times a week for flexability and an upper body workout. Been thinking about pilates, tho.
