April was truly a month of blossoms' and I was able to enjoy yet another wonderful Pilates workshop. We focused on connecting arms and torso while rounding out the practice with barrel exploration, from spine corrector to high barrel.
Spring is here and now is the time to prepare your body for those Summer activities. Weight training has countless benefits and can be used in any fitness routine, regardless of age or end goal. For some women, weight training has a stigma that it will make them big and bulky, but that is not the case. While weight training can be used to increase strength, size, and definition of muscles, it also helps to combat fat gains. Since muscle burns more calories at rest than fat, having leaner muscle mass can help people lose weight.
The other day I went out to walk my dog around the neighborhood, as I am wont to do. It being early April the signs of incipient spring were very apparent: crocuses, buds, warmer air, the last piles of snow under the shrubberies gone, landscaping trucks dotting the roads, and more people out walking. One of the nice things about walking is not just where the legs take you, but where the mind goes. In this case I was thinking about my college days at a school in a highly urban environment, and the prodigious amount of walking I did.
It's almost time for summer and we all want to look our best. Lucky for you I'm offering some new classes and session and get you to where you want to be. Be it group or one-on-one, each session is fun but sweat inducing, maximizing you calorie burn, getting you results fast. It's fit for all levels, tailored to your individual needs.
