This study examined if the intensity of mat Pilates exercise was high enough to maintain the heart rate (HR) in the target heart rate (THR) zone for more than 20 continuous minutes during three different mat Pilates exercise sessions in cardiorespiratory untrained (CRUT; n = 15) and cardiorespiratory trained (n = 16) college-aged females. No participant maintained the HR in the THR zone for more than 20 continuous minutes. Mean HR was significantly higher in the CRUT for all sessions (p = 0.038); however, no significant differences ( p > 0.05) were observed among sessions for either group. Maximum HR, total time in the THR zone, and total time in the THR zone with 15-second interval were not significantly different (p > 0.05) between groups and among sessions for either group. The results suggest that Pilates exercise does not induce an adequate cardiorespiratory response to meet minimum exercise requirements.
