    The other day at the gym, the teacher sent us to the wall for a set of standing push-ups.

    "Place your hands on the wall at breast level," she instructed.

    "You're joining a gym again?" I laughed. "If you could get back even half the money you've spent on gym memberships, you could go to Hawaii!"

    "This time it's different," my friend said. "I'm joining that new one right by the mall. It's so convenient, I can't not go! And I'll even...

    It is called Pilates, and I had been hearing about it for some time but dismissed it as a faddish '90s workout. It fit the mold perfectly: It had the requisite exotic name (pronounced puh-LAH-tees), you had to go to a gym to do it, and celebrities hailed it as a miracle workout that...
