  23. Roberta 7 years ago

    I am loving these workouts! My question is -what type of cardio, if any, do you do in addition to Pilates?

    • Robin Long 7 years ago

      Hi Roberta!
      These days I do almost ALL Pilates. Very little cardio other than walking. But I do run, I just haven’t been doing so lately because of weather and not enough time! Check out my post titled “will Pilates help me lose weight” to hear more about my perspective on cardio for weight loss. 🙂 xo
