Pauper's Pilates

Back when the economy was still running full steam, my colleagues and I hired a private pilates instructor to come to our workplace. Slowly, our faithful group dwindled and it became impossible to keep the instructor paid. Fortunately, however, I retained some of the wonderful pilates moves she taught us.

Workout

cybex + elliptical

The preferred ellipticals (with individual tvs) were full when I arrived, so I did 20 minutes on the Cybex, a little under 2 miles. The Cybex, which I don't use very often, feels harder than the elliptical. Is that true? Then 20 more mins on the elliptical, once it opened up, 2.25 miles. Tricep exercise + 10 (modified) push-ups (someday I will get better at these), and stetches.

I got the Power(balls). Okay, not really.

Yesterday, Iworked with those bosu balls for the first time in the powerball pilates class. I slipped off my ball and came this close to taking out my classmate. I enjoyed the workout and look forward to getting stronger and more controlled in my movements. I just can't help but wondering if anyone else was as awful as I am at this when she first started.

SOGGY FOGGY RUN - I AM INVEEEEENCIBLE!

It's awful weather today. Soggy, foggy, humid, drippy, the kind of weather that makes you want to stay in bed watching SVU reruns and sipping hot chocolate while you wait for one of the episodes where Christopher Meloni takes his shirt off ... but I digress. The weather sucked, but I still got out there and ran, and I did it after one a$$-kicking Pilates class. And no granny jogging, either.

Workout

much needed cardio

45 min of fat burning pilates.  its funny how each of these classes and instructors define "pilates" in its own way.

Friday Afternoon Pilates!

Took the Friday afternoon open mat class at Power Pilates in midtown with Erin. Small class, only 3 of us that day, but it was great.

Why haven't I been to Pilates in two months again?

One of the many perks of being a health and fitness writer is getting to check out all the different studios and gyms in Chicago. But I've been so into my yoga lately, that I've totally slacked on going to other places, add in the dirty cold winter and the past month my life has pretty much been bus to corepower to whole foods to home.

I am beaming!

Today I woke up early (8:52am-whoo!) and made it out to fort greene for beaming class. which is like pilates only the exercises are done on a little beam which is about 2 inches off the floor. Kinda cool and i def felt the workout. (I am still feeling it.)  The instuctor was very encouraging and enthusiastic, which was an extra bonus. I would try this again.
