If you work and have a family, your own health and fitness often gets forgotten about. There are so many other things that need to be done. Sound familiar? Of course it does!
But making time for you isn’t selfish. Putting aside half an hour or an hour of your day for you is essential. Whether it’s exercise or sitting in a quiet room with a book, whatever it is, make sure you make time for it.
Today I managed to squeeze in a quick workout after my last client and before I picked the kids up from school. I nearly didn’t as I have lots of work going on but I made time for me instead. It was tough but I feel so much better for it! Although, note to self, don’t eat coconut yogurt before a workout. The core work got swapped out pretty quickly. 💪💪💪💪💪 #selfcare#fitness#essentialmaintenance#loveyourcore#womenshealth#womensfitness#workout#gym#squats#pt#personaltrainer#health
In no particular order #pilatestvabchallenge Day 3. Not quite the Blue Mountains as shown by @ksjbodycontrol but further proof you can do Pilates anywhere! Although I would prefer the Blue Mountains! 🤣
All exercises require ab stabilisation and as @ksjbodycontrol did I have only shown a couple of reps of each movement. Work at your own level but aim for 10 reps of each, holding final plank for count of 10.

Hola amigos 👋 check this:
Combo completo hip flexors.
Abdominals muscle originated from the pubic crest, pubic symphysis and goes up to the sixth and seventh ribs and xiphoid process. Action is to flex de spine and tilt the pelvis posteriorly.
When you hear someone to tell you engaged your core to protect your back it’s because this muscle has relationships with your nerves T5 - T6- T7- 11 , T12. Weakens in this muscle contributes to your lower back pain. We don’t work in our abdomen to show the six pack (well if you can show good for you it’s no my case) So working in your anterior abdominals muscle help you to maintain healthy spine. :

It’s fast becoming the buzzword for 2018 and we’ve spent (probably too) much of this week chatting about what wellness actually means in class. The answer, well there is no one answer as it means different things to different people but what did come up every time was the following:
Eating the right foods. Not restricting yourself of the things you enjoy but ensuring that what you are eating is providing you with the nutrients your body needs.
Stretching and moving your body. For some this is a HIIT session, for others a Pilates class. It didn’t matter, but the movement and stretching of the body did.
Sleep. Getting quality sleep every night.
So with all this mind next week I will be bringing you helpful ideas and videos to help you on your journey to ‘wellness.’ Think morning stretches and pre-sleep healthy hot chocolate ideas! #wellness#pilates#pilatesbody#pilateslove#pilatesleeds#leedspilates#loveyourcore#lovepilates#letsdothis
Today- get down on your floor and plank! I can’t express to you enough how much you will benefit from this! Start on your elbows, advance to straight arms, add variations! Saw back and forth with your feet, lift one leg at a time, go to your side, dip your hips, stay on your knees and alternate extending one leg out at a time. Just start adding planks in!! Especially if you suffer from #diastasisrecti after those sweet babies ripped your abdominal muscles apart 😜
Hold your abdominal muscles in to prevent your lower back from sinking down! Start with 10 seconds today ...maybe 5 sets of 10 seconds. Add more time next week! Keep building with baby steps, prevent injury and show your powerhouse some love! #pilates#plank#homestudio#loveyourcore

🌌 Day 4 of #LoveOnYourMat is to Give Love To Your Core!! I chose #navasana or #boatpose because it always kills my core! 😂💜💙 Hosts 💗:
Hi Hamstrings! Not sure if you can see what’s happening behind that ballet bar, but my “standing leg” is slightly in front of the working leg (strap on the leg furthest from the wood). And there is an articulation of the foot as the back of the leg flexes and extends. You can play with the tension of 1 spring depending on the machine. If you’re doing it well, your standing leg should be burning by the time you switch side. Enjoy!
