“I’m not flexible enough.”
“I don’t have the proper equipment.”
“I don’t have the time.”
“My house is too small.”
Do these excuses sound all too familiar?
As well all know, our overall health and quality of life is largely affected by how frequently we exercise. But scheduling exercise into ourdaily routine can be much easier said than done. And having the courage to try new forms of exercise is even more difficult.
But first, what is pilates? And why should we consider incorporating it into our exercise practice?
As defined by WebMD, pilates is the system of strengthening and stretching exercises designed to develop the body’s core, mobilize the spine and build flexibility.
Pilates benefits our bodies because it is an innovative and safe form of exercise that utilizes our body’s own weight to maximize physical strength, increase flexibility, and hone in our ability to be aware.
Pilates is also incredible because it can be practiced anywhere at any time and all you need is a mat! And, according to Robin, if you don’t have a mat you can still make it work!
So check out The Balanced Life YouTube channel for free workouts and get started! Robin offers a variety of levels of workouts that are safe for beginners and challenging for those who are more advanced.
With the vast array of quality online exercises now online, time and space are no longer an excuse not to work out.
Be empowered. Take care of your body by practicing pilates now.
