Feel free to summarize or quote parts of the post or the study. It would be nice to have that information here for reference and help prevent link rot.

comment I haven't worked out in years, how should I go about starting?
Insanity and P90X are pretty intense, probably way too much for a new person. I've seen some pretty fit people have a hard time with it too (except for maybe the Batman).

comment Why would someone do Pilates as their main fitness activity?
The question is pretty broad, but it can be useful if it were rewritten to be more specific and related to the asker's perspective. As @Informaficker had mentioned from the faq, the question can be greatly improved if you mention why you are looking at Pilates, what other activities you've considered, etc., etc.
