Do you often get asked about Pilates and why you do it? Do you wish you could just reel off a list of amazing benefits that might persuade others to get off their sofas?

Well, here it is,  your Top 10 list of ways that Pilates leads to a happier and healthier life.

My favorite is No. 2: A flat belly. Most ab exercises focus on the superficial abdominals that won’t give you a flat stomach. Pilates targets the deep core, which leads to a flat tummy, a narrow waist, and—bonus!—a healthy spine.

It makes me think: A flat tummy equals a happy mummy!

Which reason do you like the best?

And so is the struggle to live well in the USA. My wife, Rose Alcantara, and I moved to Belize in early 2014. It has been an amazing adventure but there is always so much more to learn. You'll find out about our life on Ambergris Caye on this blog, oftentimes exactly when we do. So stick around. You can also learn about Rose's new venture Island Pilates by Rose at
