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." 


If you're curious to know what it's like to take pilates classes, Female Network's lifestyle guru Cara Eriguel documents her experience at pilates studio One Life Studio—plus, she weighs in the pros and cons of the low-impact workout! Watch the video below:
