If you think Pilates is just stretching for women with a dancer’s body, you’re probably not alone. But you're definitely wrong. While women are drawn to the practice for its all-but-guaranteed results, guys can reap the same benefits. Which include everything from strength and coordination to balance and flexibility. Not to mention, mental clarity and better posture. It's no wonder that the biggest names from the world of sports—we're talking about LeBron James, Antonio Brown, Tiger Woods and David Beckham—have been spotted on the reformer machines. If you've got back pain, tight muscles or want to appear taller and more toned ... then Pilates is for you, my friend. Still need convincing? It was created by a dude. Joseph Pilates developed the discipline back in the early part of the last century, naming it Contrology because he felt his method uses the mind to control the muscles.
