I will be on extended vacation in Jakarta from July-October and I would like to stay in shape while I am there. Does anyone know a good Pilates studio?

If you're in the US now, you can buy the Gaiam series on Pilates video, about 20 USD.
All you need is a tv and dvd player and Gaiam DVD (no I'm not pushing this product nor do I get any money from this company).

I bet there are numerous Pilates dvd; I use this dvd when I travel and save time (don't have to go to the gym) and gym membership requires at least a year of commitment and very expensive in Jakarta (checked this too- some clubs will accept 3 month membership but again very expensive).

my gym charges Rp1.5 million per year. facilities are basic, but it does have a reasonable pool. best of all, i can walk there from the office.

God, please. Pilates is a complete con act. Tried it, bought the t-shirt. There is no substitute for eating healthy food and exercise. If you ever want to be an international ballerina etc etdc, pilates is for you. It is simply a fad that will fade away, as it should, in a couple of years.

Girls, you heard it here first -- there is no quick fix. A healthy body and mind is a long-term commitment, not something you can buy. Trust me, I write about this shit for a living.

Stop eating anything fried, cut out the teh bottles, stop using the elevator in your work place and play a sport during the weekend and that is no substitute for pilates/diet pills/snake oil etc etc. Having a proper figure requires commitment, like anything.

Stop eating anything fried,

indonesian women seem to have the most problem with this one ... smile maybe 50% of all warung food is fried, and if it isn't, then it's drowned in oil.

Whatever Piss said is 100% correct! eating right!! means no bakso, no nasi goreng, no mi tek-tek at night, no bintang! no smoke please...

get your chubby ass off the couch!!! do lari-lari keliling monas! join KuKu angkat besi at the gym, do swim di sungai ciliwung, go take a buss or ride a bike to work!...basically get sweat..and sweat!! burn 5000 calories a day! i guarantee you will get rockin's ass in a few months! forget the couple years as Piss promised! laugh
