Mont Python did a mickey take on pilates with their “Dynamo Tension” sketch. Basically aerobics involves jumping around and the other one is about muscular fitness.

  1. aerobics combines rhythmic aerobic exercise with stretching and strength training. aerobic exercise basically means exercise that improves oxygen consumption by the body. pilates, on the otherhand, teach awareness of breath and alignment of the spine, and aim to strengthen the deep torso muscles, and it’s more about using the mind to control the muscles.
    the other difference being, Pilates was named after Joseph Pilates whereas Aerobics is a word that simply means “with oxygen”.

  2. Totally different. Aerobics is steady state cardio, low intensity for extended periods at a time. Pilates is a weird core muscle development thing where you get in these strange devices that look like torture devices and do exercises there. The common exercise the “plank” is a pilates inspired exercies.
