I have said for a very long time that I wanted to try Pilates. When I would walk or try to run around the track at my local gym, I’d go right past the Pilates studios. So I decided December was my time.
December rolled around and it happened that there was an incentive program for Pilates. I decided I was in. I took some orientation classes and I realized this was more than just pulling on a few straps.
Pilates is a total body workout. You will work beyond your belief. It will teach you a new way to breathe and even sit. You could possibly have a new body awareness.
Overall, my Pilates instructors have educated me about my body and about fitness. All while having a personalized workout with supervision to ensure I am doing everything correctly. It really is a win, win!
Oh yes, and that little contraption? It’s called a reformer.
Find a Pilates studio near you, it could be a great addition to your workout regime!
