Welcome to Day Eleven of The November 20/20 Challenge.
Today's activity highlight is Pilates!
I love pilates!
I've never done a class, but I used to regularly do a pilates DVD and although it was hard work, I always felt amazing after it! Obviously the more I did it, the better I got at it, too! And for a time there, I was doing it every day. I've mentioned before how 'inflexible' my body is, and it actually started to improve!
But then I stopped. I went on a five week 4WD trip around far North Queensland, and although I did it occasionally on that trip (I had recorded the audio onto my MP3 player - I knew it so well, I didn't need to watch it), it was also the trip that I got engaged, so other things became a priority.
Alas, my flexibility returned back to the way it was.
Pilates can be done in group classes, or one on one with an instructor, and is performed either on special pilates equipment, or a mat on the floor.
Some other benefits of Pilates include:
Whole body fitness.
Improves co-ordination and balance.
Increases muscle strength, especially of the core muscles.
I think it might be time to dig out that DVD! In fact, on second thought, I think it might be a video tape!
Oh gees. Ebay, here I come!
