Time to be honest…I’m back at my start weight of 240…I’ve developed a sedentary lifestyle with lots of binge eating…

Pilates: Losing weight and Toning up


Pilates… 
Yes that is me in the pictures above :)

  Pilates is a great tool to increase your core strength, body awareness, and can also help with your focus and body control. 

In my experiences Pilates has helped with allowing me to work muscles that I normally would not work running and lifting weights. It is a different workout that requires your body to rely on your core to do most of the movements and have your larger muscle groups work as secondary movers. 

This is much different than lifting weights or running on a treadmill because it requires your body to move in angles that you normally wouldn’t. The key benefits to this are that it gives you a longer leaner look and can increase your flexibility and range of motion. 

For those of you who may be wondering how this can help you, it helps with toning your stomach as you are losing weight so once you drop the weight and body fat , you will have a stomach that you are proud to show off. 

Pilates will help to build muscle in a more balanced way to avoid injury and since you are working muscles that you normally don’t work, it will give you a much better opportunity to lean  up and wear those clothes that you really want to wear. 

There are six pilates principles and they are Centering, Control, Flow, Breath, Precision, and Concentration.

Use these principles to give you an advantage in your workout program and help reduce stress.

And you know my philosophy on stress, less stress equals a leaner more toned body. 

Are you guys currently using Pilates to help you in your fitness journey? If so, how and what benefits are you receiving?
