The Beauty Beat, Pilates Bodies!

Ok, so we are traveling for a while with the family this summer, so that means no pilates classes! 
We were taking classes up to 3 times a week before we headed out on our summer of fun.  Now heading into the second week without a reformer in sight, we are longing to get back to it! 

So we figure, if we can't do it, let's talk about it! 

Because we can vouch for the fact that Pilates makes you beautiful and strong (or at least we can vouch that it makes you FEEL that way)  we think it deserves to be filed here under the Beauty category.
Miss Me practices Stott Pilates, this method involves the use of the Reformer, the Cadillac and really puts the focus on your core. It is really amazing and helped turn her body around post baby & baby number two!! 
Miss Me, was also not a big work-out gal before kids, but after you have kids, well you gotta face facts. 

One day this will be Miss Me's tummy... If I can just stop with all those Yummy goodies we feature on Tuesdays. 

Strengthening, toning and dropping pounds... Win, Win, Winner!! 

Pilates was developed by fitness guru Joseph H. Pilates in the early 1900's as a complete body conditioning method. Joseph ran a pilates studio till he died in 1967!

So, he is sort of proof that pilates can help you hang around for a long time!! 

If you want to try it out at home, Miss t-w-h swears by "All the right moves" pilates DVDs! Grace Lazenby can really show you how to shape it up in the privacy of your own living room and can you get any better then that? 

Red alert! Red alert! The word on the street is that the new best thing for your buns is Piloxing! A mixture of Pilates and Boxing, super amazing cardio! This is the HARDEST class Miss t-w-h has ever taken, and his gal takes a lot of classes, so her word is gold. Watch a video here
Wow, I can not wait to try it! 

Wow!! We miss pilates so much!! Please go and do some and think of us while you are working on your fitness!
