The first day of summer is officially here and the fun is just beginning!
Whether your summer plans include camping, starting a backyard volleyball game or just lounging at the beach, there is plenty of time left to get that toned stomach you’ve always wanted. What are you waiting for? As Joseph Pilates said, “In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 you will see the difference, and in 30 you will have a whole new body.”
Pilates engages your core in every move while lengthening your muscles to create a beach body, quickly. Because Pilates exercises are performed at a slow pace to maximize movement and paired with a focused breath, your core muscles reap the full benefit of each move.
Pilates done on a mat is one of the fastest ways to change your body, especially the “Stomach Series.” Also known as the “Belly Burner”, this advanced series includes: Single Leg Stretch, Double Leg Stretch, Single Straight Leg Stretch, Double Straight Leg Stretch, Criss Cross.
