Quality vs. Quantity

The great thing about Pilates is that you don’t have to do the same exercise over and over.  We perform most of the exercises anywhere from 6-12 times.  Why?  The concept is to perform less exercises with a controlled body as opposed to 50 repetitions with your shoulders rolled forward and you belly button released.  

Next time you’re in class, make sure you body is in the best form possible and think about doing the exercise well, even if that means you sit out one or two repetitions.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
