Boogie Bounce is a fun fitness class that incorporates dance, high energy and lots of fun. It is an exercise program on a mini trampoline (a springboard kind of thing). In this every muscle in the body is worked, even the facial muscles. 

Pilates in layman's languages is similar to Yoga, concentrates on strengthening the body as well as mind-body connection. Pilates is an exercise technique that was invented for injured dancers nearly a century ago by gymnast Joseph Pilates. While Pilates focuses on core strength, toning and body control, the yoga focuses more on flexibility, spirituality and covers a broader range of muscles, such as the hands, wrist, and ankles.

Unlike some forms of exercise, Pilates does not over-develop some parts of the body and neglect others.  Pilates training focuses on core strength.  It trains the body as an integrated whole.  It helps to develop a strong core, flat abdominals, and a stiff back.
