8/08/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal : Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 8. August 2012 20:11

In my search for new ways to challenge my workout routine, when I had my third child in my late 30's, I found pilaties.

Being a type 'A' personality, I didn't think pilaties would be effective for me because you don't sweat enough.  Then I saw that smile from my teacher because she knew that pilaties is a highly effective means of work whose core principle is to engage your intrinsic muscles as you move through a pre-designed choreography of exercises focusing on single or multiple body parts.

I started with private classes,  then moved onto group classes.  There are mat classes and reformer classes.  Try different kinds with the guidance of a trained teacher, and choose what's best for you.

"When you're doing pilaties in it's truest form, it will challenge you, make you sweat and work your muscles so much that you'll feel it the next day."-Christin Schult; Pilates Style Magazine,January 08'.  I can attest to that!

P.S. My daughter comes home from camp!!!Yahhh
