8. Promotes Weight Loss and Long, Lean Appearance

If you practice Pilates regularly, it will change your body. Known for creating long, strong muscles and a leaner look; Pilates improves muscle tone, balances musculature, supports beautiful posture, and teaches you to move with ease and grace. All of these things will make you look and feel very fit.

If you want to lose weight, the formula for weight loss remains the same: Burn more calories than you take in. As a full-body fitness method, Pilates help will help you do that. Combined with aerobic activity, Pilates becomes a prime weight loss and body toning tool.

The simple fact is this: muscles burns twice as many calories as fat.  Pound per pound, a body with more muscle mass is far more efficient than one composed of more fat.  Since Pilates is primarily a strength-training regimen designed to build long, lean muscles, this is the routine for someone who wants to shed fat and look svelte!
