IELTS Cue Card Answer | An activity you often do after school/work

About two years ago I started taking a Pilates class with my older sister. It was something we had discussed for some time. We both wanted to try something new and different (for us) but we were looking for something that would help us relax and also be healthy. We talked about buying bikes and going on bike rides, and we also thought about joining a sports club or gym or something like that, but really we’re not that sporty, so we decided against it.

It was actually a friend of my sister who introduced us to the idea of Pilates because she’s been doing it for a few years now and she was telling us about how good it is and how her health and wellbeing have improved since she started taking classes.

So, one day she invited us to go and watch one of her classes. She’s quite advanced, as she’s been doing it for years, so we sat and watched the class and listened to the instructor explaining what to do. We thought it looked interesting and easy – so we decided we’d give it a try – but joined a beginner’s class, not the same class as my sister’s friend.

One of the things we liked about it was the fact that we didn’t have to buy any expensive special equipment, and also that it’s an indoor activity, not like the bike riding idea we had.

The classes were three times a week, and were held in the local community center, where they do a lot of activities like that. The instructor was very nice and paid a lot of attention to us when we first started.

Anyway, as I said, we thought it looked easy at first, but after the first class we were sore all over. My body was aching the next day, but I suppose I should’ve expected that since I hadn’t really done any physical exercise for ages.

It might look easy but it’s not. But the good thing is that you soon get used to the different positions and you can feel yourself getting better at each one as the weeks go by. And you can feel yourself getting stronger.

Looking back, it’s probably one of the best decisions we’ve ever made, and we still go about three times a week when we both have free time. I love the fact that I’m more flexible, stronger, and feel generally healthier than before, so it’s definitely been worth it.
