Top 10 Most Popular Workout Types in Fitness

4. Pilates

Although Pilates has been around since the early 1960’s, its popularity is still increasing today. According to one of New York’s premier Pilates instructors, Danielle Havasy of BeYOUtiful Body, “Pilates is a full body conditioning workout. How it works is that you are taught to execute every movement from your core with control, engage every single muscle simultaneously and add even more resistance by actively lengthening your muscles all at once.

The effect of doing these intense exercises over a long period of time completely restructures your body into a leaner, longer and much stronger shape.” Another bonus of Pilates is that you don’t sweat a lot, so it’s very popular with women who don’t want to ruin their hair.
