The wonderful thing about Pilates is that it is suitable for just about everyone, regardless of age and fitness level. It is beneficial for dealing with specific health conditions, injuries and postural problems and is also very effective in toning your muscles to give you a leaner, firmer, longer and stronger figure. Perhaps this is why so many of Hollywood’s A-List include Pilates in their fitness regimes.
Here are just a few of them:
Penelope Cruz’s sexiest Pilates body
“I love Pilates. It was created for dancers, and it works all the muscles that you don’t work as a dancer. It makes these muscles stronger and it’s a really good, complete exercise. And I love Yoga, but I haven’t done it for a while.” Penelope also likes to do meditation and has another beauty and health secret. “What I do is sleep.” Her sleeping record, she says, is 17 hours, although she normally manages to get eight. “But I’ll do 10 or 12 hours if I can.”
