Benefits of Pilates!

Sunday started out with a Pilates class in the morning. The class proved to live up to its benefits which includes the following: improve strength, flexbility, balance, tone, and challenge deep abdominal muscles to the support the core. My abdominals and legs muscles are very sore today. The soreness is shocking because of my weekly workout rountine; it goes to show that I still have muscles that need to be worked.

Pilates is part of my workout routine to enhance my physical appearance, in other words it's a great class for molding and shaping. Pilates can not stand alone when it comes to dropping weight, so strength training and cardio must be part of a weekly workout plan.


  1. I just picked up a Pilates DVD at a garage sale and am looking forward to trying it! I know it's not the same as a class, but I'm sure I will enjoy it just the same.

    I'm glad you enjoyed your class - soreness and all.

  2. I've always been a little scared of Pilates. They do offer classes at my gym, so maybe I'll get around to trying it some day. It's good to hear it's working for you!

  3. Glad to hear you like Pilates! It's a lot harder than it looks, that's for sure!
