As I am trying to come up with a series of exercises for an upcoming "Mommy and Me" Pilates class I am starting, I was going through some of my older books that I haven’t read through in a while and I came across the "Nine Commandments of Pilates". I thought it was clever, being Easter is in just a few days.

1.Make it YOUR goal - not someone else's expectation of you. In order to succeed, YOU have to be convinced that this is something you really want to do.
2.Create a plan. Take the time and effort to figure out HOW you'll succeed. Certified personal trainers and credible books and articles are your best sources of help here.
3.Expect failure…and then get over it. Life happens an...d you WILL have setbacks. Just get back on your feet as soon as possible.
Personal trainers can literally transform your life. They educate, motivate, and inspire. Frankly that's worth its weight in gold. From goal setting, proper exercise form, program design, and nutrition advice, trainers have... the answers.
The following workouts will be for the Tabata Light class. The workout will be listed with the number of intervals, the time for work and the time for rest, and the exercise. For the Tabata Light class the intensity will be a little bit less than 100% and that's by design. If you do these workouts on your own feel free to work as hard as you want, just make sure you have perfect form. Form is paramount in these workouts as I'll slow you down if you're form is not good.

So reason # 2 to be a Fool for Fitness this month is because Lean Muscle is so "in" year round, trend in, trend out and pretty much all the time. Muscle acts like a fire place in your body and burns more calories than any other body component. So, I personally, using that concept, like the fact that I feel like I can eat more.. of the right foods, of course. But seriously the more muscle you have the hotter you run and that leads to weight loss.
