Well, I don’t actually hate Pilates…
Let me rephrase that–
I remember my first ‘proper’ Pilates class. I recognised some of the exercises rom dance class years before. Others were similar to the body conditioning I was teaching at the time – goodness my core and my abs were sore.
So I now have a love/hate relationship with it.
Which is why I’ve shared this story from Sylvia from Barbados to share with you the importance of a strong core using Pilates.
You see, Sylvia is an expert in Pilates and she filled me on the program that I once thought was only for dancers and older women.
Take it away, Sylvia …
#1 Tip For Lookin Sexy with Pilates
by Sylvia Favela
After having my son the thought of feeling sexy was a far-fetched fantasy.
My body changed in ways I never thought were possible.
My insides felt like mush and didn’t feel sexy with how I looked. Even before having my son I hated how my body looked.
I did the same old thing everybody did.
I walked myself into those big gyms and went as hard as I could.
Well, after a few months I was looking better but my body felt and looked like a square box.
Sure my clothes started to fit better and I was finally able to look at myself in the mirror without being disgusted.
But there was still something missing, I wasn’t feeling sexy about how I looked and felt. I knew something had to give, sure I’m a mom but I wanted a sexy slim physique and there was no way my body should stay like this.
I secretly envied the sexy looking bodies I’d see on TV and I wanted to feel and look sexy in and out of clothes.
I jumped in and tried Pilates; I thought what the heck why not.
I can’t explain what an amazing feeling it was after one workout.
I felt muscles I never knew I had and my entire body felt tighter and firmer.
As I continued my Pilates workout my body changed drastically.
The full body workouts and deep core exercises transformed my square sloppy frame into a slim toned physique.
My stomach is flat and tight, my waistline smaller (something I never thought possible after having a baby) I developed lean, tone, muscle definition in my legs and arms.
In Pilates I had finally found the missing link to looking and feeling Sexier and Younger.
I now walk taller, leaner and with confidence.
And people are shocked when they find out I have a 11-year-old son!
And guess what?
Pilates is one of those things that sort of grows on you over time.
But, what I can tell you is developing core strengthen is crucial to maintaining a strong, fit, balanced body to help reduce the risk of long-term injuries.
And Pilates has certainly done that for me.
Thanks, Sylvia! Great story.
Pilates has rightly earned the reputation of helping you develop deep core strength, flexibility and regain your youthful body again.
Seriously though … I don’t really hate Pilates.
But I do hate how it’s ALWAYS challenging, demanding and engaging
But LOVE LOVE LOVE how it changes bodies for the better.
