Pilates (pronounced pi-lah-teez) is more than just a posh-sounding exercise trend, but a fitness method with a truly incredible history dating back to the early 1900’s. And it’s not just about training the body, but honing the mind, too.
It’s Not Just About the Weight
My journey to fitness is 6 months in the making. Before this I had countless "failed" attempts to regain control; take my life back, get off medicine, be more active, eat healthier, and make better choices. WOW!!! That seems so overwhelming to read those words back to myself. So many of us know the steps and what it takes but still we continue to read numerous articles, pin way too many Pinterest diets, exercises and ways to plan for our fitness success but in the end we still choose to live the same way. Living the same way I had for the past 20 years. Man how time flies!!!! Looking back I see all the times I swore this time would be different and this would be the time the change would stick only to find weeks later and often times only days later, myself...
With the new year comes new resolutions and for most of us, this includes a few choices to become healthier like dropping the junk food and picking up a gym membership. But while the nutrition can be a difficult subject all on its own, what about a gym?
