WHAT IT IS
This Pilates-inspired workout will sculpt your core and give you defined, sexy abs and increased core body strength. As a Pilates-trained instructor, Chris will guide you through each methodical move, designed to target specific muscles in your core.
Pilates uses precision and focus to teach you how to stabilize your midsection while you mobilize the rest of your body. Not only does this core Pilates workout give you aesthetic results with a flatter tummy, but it protects your back from injury and teaches your body how to move through daily activities without getting hurt.
In this core Pilates routine you’ll work all the muscles in your core, but focus mainly on the transverse abdominus–what Pilates gurus call “The Powerhouse”. This is the muscle that matters most when it comes to training and tightening your core and creating a strong, healthy back.
The exercises in this core Pilates workout are subtle but powerful. The strength and burn sneaks up on you and before you know it you can feel yourself working the muscles you’ve so desperately tried to strengthen before. Chris will provide plenty of modifications and encouragement in this core Pilates workout to keep you motivated until the very end.
From slow, steady moves like full-body rollups to energizing moments like the Pilates One-Hundred, this core Pilates workout will have you feeling stronger in no time. But it doesn’t stop there. Your legs, buns and arms will get involved too, and before you know it you feel energized and tighter all over.
WHY CHOOSE THIS WORKOUT?
Not only does a toned and firm midsection look good, it feels good! With a flat tummy and a stronger low back you’ll be glad you tried this core Pilates workout. Don’t waste any more time on crunches or sit-ups that serve only to strain your neck and tighten your hip flexors. Pilates moves focus on stabilization–the thing that truly makes a difference.
All exercises you perform are your own responsibility and you perform them at your own risk. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider before starting any physical exercise, fitness or wellness regiments of any kind.
