Daisy Fuentes Teaches Pilates
By Alycea Ungaro
Yes, it’s true; the Pilates technology you’ve been waiting for is about to be released. Pilates has come to the Wii , merging fitness and fun in the newest incarnation of mass-market health and wellness. Your teacher is none other than the delightful and engaging Daisy Fuentes.
Wait, what? Daisy Fuentes? Uh, ok. Why?
I knew Daisy Fuentes did Pilates but when did she become a teacher? Common sense dictates that she must have expanded her credentials and become a trained Pilates instructor.

A skill set not easily learned and one that is very difficult to master.
Legend has it that Joe Pilates was not a very good teacher. He was a remarkable inventor, an unparalleled innovator but none to impressive with his communication skills. By contrast, his wife Clara is touted as the real teacher at the original Pilates studio. Her gentle touch and soothing voice are recalled even today by her devoted students.
I’m happy that Pilates has come this far and that people worldwide will have the benefit of Pilates in their homes. It’s thrilling to see the growth of this metho...
