Question by feelthemusic234: Pilates? At Home Cardio?
I am 16, about 5’9 or 10′ and have been growing ever closer to 180 pounds. I feel terrible about myself considering I was about 155 one year ago. Anyway I’ve been eating a little better and doing pilates at home. Will pilates make me gain weight because it builds muscle?
How can I do some at home cardio without any fancy equipment? Will running help?

Running will definitely help with the cardio. Anything that really gets your heart rate up can help.
As for pilates, it is an EXCELLENT way to tone your body. Don’t worry about gaining weight. If you’re eating right and doing a little cardio you’ll lose some. Even if you do gain muscle mass don’t focus on the number on the scale. Just focus on good you look and that number won’t matter.
