For ladies who aren't into doing intense, heart-pumping exercises, a low-impact workout like pilates definitely sounds enticing. 

Pilates is a low-intensity exercise that has been gaining popularity lately; it mainly focuses on toning and strengthening the core, but it benefits other parts of the body, too, such as the legs and the arms. Although the movements are done at a slow pace, they aren't as easy as they may seem. As WebMD notes, "They take a lot of precision and control. It's not like doing a bunch of crunches; there's a strong emphasis on technique."
