Firstly, leave your dignity by the door. Secondly, be prepared for a flashback to the adolescent humiliation of your school days - the changing-rooms are communal. The lock doesn't work either, you optimistic fool! Activities Pilates is far from the Cindy Crawford fitness DVD school of thought - it involves legs akimbo and mid-air. Then there's the sweat. Glamorous this ain't. No simple yoga mat here - instead there's a pulley contraption with different spring settings to get you all sweaty and giggly (ooh err!) All this slippery silliness will afford you a fun, demanding and well directed work-out.
