Pilates for core strengthening, improved breathing and physical therapy

It is a very common question asked by fitness freaks that what should I do to improve my breathing, get some physical therapy, and strengthen my core muscles through a single workout technique and I always suggest Pilates not because this is better than yoga or aerobics or zumba workouts but just because its outputs are core strengthening, physiotherapy, and improved breathing.

Initiated by a self starter, Joseph Pilates, who had breathing disease like asthma, autoimmune disorders like rheumatic fever, and rickets, Pilates has become one of the top choices of fitness enthusiasts.
