Here's an article I wrote for The Health Journal on how Pilates was designed to maximize both your body and your health. Hope you enjoy it and maybe will even give some of the moves a try!
Six months into our new adventure and I still believe in the principles of fitness and health. I still strive to learn all I can and to be the best I can be. I still believe in the power of empowering others. I still love my clients and past clients and pray they will continue the process of enabling their own well being forever. I'm still deeply grateful for the time we have spent together and I miss those of you who are far away! Never forget how special you are!
O.k., so it's my 1st blog and I'm really excited. As my dear friend, Dr. Howard Bierman (only 90+ years old and still works out two to three days/week!) likes to say, "Writing makes the man", or woman in my case. So my first thought is to begin wrting about what I wish I had known when I first began working out as a pre-teen. In no particular order, what comes to mind is the fact that muscles have a specific "job" in our bodies by way of where they attach. If you know this info, you can train your muscles to be their absolute best, avoid injury and teach your body to perform more effectively than ever. That's why I spend so much time "educating" my clients using various techniques. Once those muscles know their jobs, each individual pulls their own weight, so to speak, making everything work together to it's best effort.
