09a10bx.jpg It's winter, cold and grey, a time to be indoors. Writing all day. At my desk. Pilates around the corner at re:ab and the Royal Canadian Airforce XBX Plan for Physical Fitness at home. I had a copy of this workout years ago but have no idea where it is, so I squirreled around until I found a copy online. W.A. Orr wrote the original plan for men and Norman Ashton the version for women. The program was picked up elsewhere and there is even a New Zealand edition. Though the Canadian airforce apparently abandoned the exercise plan in the 1970s, it is enjoying a comeback among fitness and weight loss seekers. There is even a Palm version! And, the pamphlet was reprinted in 2004, with earlier editions selling for $100.
