Pilates has made it all the way to Hollywood, athletes, pop singers, models, and actresses are doing Pilates. Here is why:
1. Hillary Duff:

2. Jennifer Aniston:
"I am a Pilates person. It is great. I had hip Problems. I had a chronic back, a pinched nerve and a hip problem and it's completely solved all of it. I love it. It makes me feel like I'm taller."
3. Syivester Stallone:
"For anyone who's never tried Pilates - the name is cute, but it ain't cute."
"Brutal! Working out with my daughter doing Pilates... Oh my God. This is like going the distance with Clubber Lang and Drago before breakfast!! This is an amazing workout but definitely not for the faint of heart. I've lifted weights I have boxed, wrestled, Track and field, played football and many other sports... But this workout pushes you to the limit... And beyond!"
4. Alessandra Ambrosio:
Her trainer explains that Pilates is a great exercise for a supermodel body because it gives them long lean muscles, great postures, and strong bodies.
5. Cameron Diaz:
Teddy Bass (Cameron's Trainer) says: The best combination for women over 30 is a mixture of Pilates, cardio, and weight training. "Women need weight to for building the butt, and elongation and smallness is tapped by doing Pilates."
6. Kate Hudson:
Nicole (Kate's Trainer) says that by doing Pilates: ""You'll become tighter, more toned, and stronger. It makes you stand taller, makes you have more confidence, makes you more grounded. You'll lose inches and get that leaner, longer look. After the first 10 sessions, you'll feel different. After 20 sessions, you'll see a difference!'
7. Lady Gaga:
Lady Gaga Instagram Post: "Another morning of Pilates and rock n roll with my trainer!! Body by @sloaner7 Dear Sloan, thank you for believing in me and being my health rock. You're the best I couldn't do it without you!"
8. Antonio Brown:
Christine Ruby (Antonio's Trainer) says: " With TRX and Pilates, he works everything at once, which is what he really needs to do on the field. This way we create a natural muscle balance where he'll have appropriate length and strength in each muscle on opposing forces. This is going to make a huge difference in his longevity. The sky's the limit with these workouts."
9. Vanessa Williams:
.“I was doing Pilates before people even knew how to spell Pilates. I started with Pilates guru, Mari Winsor after my first child, 22 years ago. She used to come backstage and do a mat floor workout with me when I was doing Kiss of the Spider Woman on Broadway. Core strength balances your entire body. It pulls your shoulders back, tucks in your pelvis, makes you walk straighter, and gives you great posture.”
10. David Beckham:
"I workout with my trainer or do an hour of Pilates at 6 or 7 a.m. I' done by the time my household is awake."
