I had doubts about joining a class (I have more of a lone runner personality when it comes to being active) but Pilates turns out to be the best thing I could have done. It was recommended by my physical therapist after recovery from an injury. I asked how I would feel after class, and she said "Strong!". That sold me, since many of the soft tissue injuries in my life are from weakness or overuse. Jen and her instructors have all been encouraging, and the variety of classes and approaches has kept me interested. I don't think I'm ever going to get bored, as I find the more I learn, the more I am challenged in class.
