Could You Do Pilates Every Day?

Once you start reaping the rewards of doing Pilates on a regular basis, you might start thinking about doing it every day! How would that feel? Would it be safe?

A reader wrote to me and asked those very questions; which got me thinking that a few others might be wondering about how often to do Pilates, and how to do it a lot - safely. Let me say that you can definitely do Pilates every day (though you certainly don't have to). The key will be to know how to balance your workouts so that they are not only safe, but progressive and interesting.

Here is an article that will provide some insight on creating a Pilates workout that you can do frequently, and will work for you over time:

I try to do it everyday, but it’s more like 3 or 4 times a week.
