I've been thinking about joining a new gym (Crunch Fitness) and before doing so, I tried all of their classes and went at various times to see what hours were the most crowded.
One of the classes I took was Pilates...I was the only guy in the class. The rest of the class was professional dancers and two days latter my muscles are still sore!
Has anyone else tried pilates?

I'm dealing with stress fractures in my shins right now. I am convinced that the root cause is lack of flexibility. I tried doing some yoga last night and do I ever need work on flexibility. My wife has a pilates CD and I am going to give that a try. But if yoga focuses more on flexibility I am leaning in that direction.

Yoga is the best for flexibility, but you must be very careful not to overstretch when doing Yoga. I did overstretch and the YOGA ended up causing me a injury --- or rather my doing yoga incorrectly and pushing too hard.....
