Results & Benefits
According to Joseph Pilates "In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body".
But it really depends on how often do you exercise. For someone who only exercises once a week to feel benefits will take longer than for someone who exercises 3-4 times a week.
You should start seeing changes in your core strength, flexibility, and muscular endurance within the first 6 weeks, if not before.
