Joining two incredible tags in this post. The first is #stopdropandprop hosted by the lovelies @pilatesplaceyyc@riverrushfitness and @pilatesbynatasha. ➡️this week the focus is on extension and my props are my water bottle and t-shirt ➡️ I morphed my extension movements into a pike to join #pikesforpink where I was tagged by @solangtherapy and @abcpilates ✔️ Breast cancer has affected me personally in that my mother had it and ultimately died from ovarian cancer which is often connected. I am in awe of the strength survivors have to endure the treatment and beat this. My 💓 goes out to all of you. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ Please join @studiofocuspilates and #pikesforpink campaign; To raise awareness and to protect the next generation from #breastcancer Pick 1 or 2 or all of the following:
🎉🎊 #PilatesFitBallFun17 is here!! 🎊 🎉 Week 3 is here!!! For this week we have decided to add some single leg work! Please don’t let that scare you! The beauty of this series is it can be done with both legs as well! Begin by holding a plank on the fitball. Keep in mind the closer your feet are to the ball, the most challenging. Lift one leg and draw the knee towards your chest. From here, slow begin to tuck in your opposite leg. Repeat on the other side. Return back to plank. Now keeping the legs straight and strong, slowly begin to pike your booty towards the ceiling. Coming as close to a handstand as your body allows. Remember to trust yourself and keep those feet pressed into the ball. Return back to plank. Take one leg and cross it over the other. Slightly twist the pelvis and begin to pike again. Only taking the pelvis as high as you feel comfortable. Repeat on the other side. And slowly return back to plank ------------------------ This is not a contest nor a competition but rather a great way to exchange ideas and continue building our amazing community. ❤ We so look forward to your entries!! 😃 Please see @firstname.lastname@example.org for their version of these moves on their page! ---------------------- Do not forget to follow and tag the three of us and the challenge! Cannot wait to see your posts!! ----------------------- #pilates#pilatesinstructor#moveoftheday#fitness#fitnesschallenge#strength#coreworkout#fitgirls
We're 2 days into our sneak peek fitness & nutrition group and the workout today was cardio! You probably already know that cardio isn't my favorite, but this one was FUN!! The unique thing about this workout is that the moves are really beginner friendly and only one person is intensifying so kind of the opposite of every other workout! We really want this one to be accessible to all!
Moves that lean you out but keep the booty, that's my ish 👌 Super simple move right here that you can do anywhere for a quick heart pumping, leg blasting session! Add it on to your next workout for 1min 😉 Disclaimer: nope I don't make these moves up myself, they come from the programs I follow. Yup, it will burn. 😂
#finishit no matter how bad it is, how much you screwed up or how hard your workout is. Maybe Monday wasn't all that great but #tuesday is a new opportunity to shine. One bad day won't ruin your progress. But making excuses will. Put the excuses aside and make yourself a priority. If you want it... Make it happen!
