Create Great Habits - Your Seven Day Workout Schedule

Sat, August 27, 2016

Has anyone noticed how once you become more focused and make time for your workouts every day,  they become an essential part of your daily routine? Are you looking forward to your next workout because you feel so great and look so good afterwards? Have you noticed small changes in your body shape that quickly become obvious changes that others begin to notice? Are you standing taller and feeling leaner? Pilates just has so many added benefits to other fitness routines! Pilates is not about how many quick repetitions you can do of an exercise. Pilates is about controlled movement. With focus and quality range of motion you are engaging and activating all the appropriate muscles. Remember, quality of movement is better than quantity! You will see and feel the difference! We have been working out and filming from some of New York's hottest locations. From the elegance and beauty of Central Park to the magnificent skyline backdrop of Brooklyn, I hope you have loved being able to join me as we immersed ourselves in such an incredible part of our planet!
