Anyone up for Pilates?
Raft3r was introduced to it last year.
Since then, I got hooked. Not only is Pilates a great way to keep the fat off but it’s also a good form of discipline.
Pilates can be very challenging. Specially for someone who isn’t flexible, like Raft3r.
On my first workout, I poured buckets of sweat. Who knew stretching exercises can be so exhausting?
In 10 minutes, Raft3r wanted to wave the white flag. An hour later, my entire body ached. This comes from a guy who regularly plays three hours of tennis at 10 in the morning.
Raft3r went for another session the following week. I wanted to know how much more of this kind of torture my body can take. Eventually, I started to get the hang of it. Alas, my love affair with Pilates has begun.
Plus, there are a lot of hot chicks in my class. They have been really nice to me since I’ve been playing the “I need some help” card for the longest time.
Raft3r has his own yoga mat now. I also purchased a Pilates workout video and other gym essentials online. Ordering was a breeze and delivery was super fast.
I have also been introduced to Yogilates, a lethal combination of Yoga and Pilates. Man, that blows! An hour of yogilates is like 10 repetitions of a 200 pound bench press.
Raft3r has been encouraging friends to join the bandwagon. I bought my best buddy his own sticky mat and so far he has been enjoying the company of female gym goers.
Bringing him to class was a disaster, though. He now gets all the attention.
