I was first introduced to Pilates when I house sat for my dad’s brother’s family years ago. Searching through their large DVD collection, I found Mari Winsor’s series of Pilates DVDs: one targeting abs, one targeting legs, one targeting arms, and one full body workout. Being the aspiring fitness fanatic I was, I quickly forgot about my mission to find the ultimate chick flick and opted to work out instead. I started my pilates journey with Winsor’s 20-minute full-body workout and I immediately fell in love. It was fast paced, challenging, and unlike anything I’d ever tried before. I’ve tried many pilates-based workouts since, but Winsor Pilates will forever reign over the rest. Below you’ll find the 20-minute workout that triggered my love of pilates.
