I think we are in synch! But, now you have to start taking Pilates . Seriously, my daughter got me to go. I figured I'd do one class to humor her. I have gone twice a week now, for about 2 months - I LOVE IT! I can't tell you how much stronger I am, how much better my posture is, how much better my back feels. I bought the spine corrector, so that I could do those moves at home. It was well worth the $199.00. Every Pilates class is about 50% different. It focuses on core strength, but also works other muscles you don't work in other more traditional exercise. I'm thinking of doing it 3 times a week.
