I'll get us started. My favorite exercise isn't really exercise it is a mind-body experience. I love yoga! I also love my Miracle Balls. TJ

I like walking and I have not been good about continuing my walking program this winter. It was a beautiful day today and this afternoon I took a short walk.

At one time, I thought I would like to take ballet but the local dance school didn't offer beginning ballet for adults. I thought it might be a good stretching exercise.

I took a Zumba class once and I didn't like it at all.

I hear you. Zumba is tough, pretty hardcore. I like walking too. Especially when it is warm.

I took ballet once (as an adult). It was fun, but I am truly uncoordinated and kept falling over.

Thanks for posting.

Terri, the only thing I know about Pilates is that a ball is involved. Tell me more.

Hi Angie. Actually a ball is not involved in the basic 34 mat Pilates moves. The poses are floor poses and you need a mat.

There are variations of Pilates that are fun but not necessairly based on the Pilates principles. There are exercises such as:
"Pilats on the Ball"; "Yogalates"; weight training with Pilates" and more.

All of the principle poses are designed to strengthing the core giving you more stability, toning, and strength. Below are two articles I have written on Pilates. Maybe you will want to try a beginners Pilates class. Thanks for posting.
