Motivate Me

Happy New Year! Most people in the New Year make the resolution to start up a new fitness program. The beauty of Pilates is that it is addictive after you get started. People generally feel better after working out when their endorphins are going high. The benefits of Pilates are endless. Most clients start feeling better as a whole both physically and mentally. They stand up straighter and have improved posture, clothes start to fit better, they gain strength to carry out daily activities, flexibility because better creating less injury and mentally.....well it's good to take time for yourself and your health no matter how busy your life may be.

Sometimes taking the jump to try out a Pilates Studio can really freak people out and be intimidating. Don't let it. Take advantage of a private appointment (usually offered at a discount) and check out a few local studios until you find one you are comfortable with. I offer a free mat class to new clients (with the coupon on the website) just to come in and see what it's all about. Grab a friend in order to motivate yourself to come to classes.

Once you get started it is easy to keep coming back for more. The health benefits and mental well being are rewarding.
