For as long as I can remember I have loved to exercise. I genuinely believe it is the key to health, fitness, general happiness, and I just actually love sport! But like everyone else I have off days too.
It’s the last weekend of November so we can officially get excited about Christmas! I’ve pulled together a few Pilates and Fitness inspired gifts for those who are exercise minded (or for yourself if you can’t resist!). The first one is a personal favourite of mine after purchasing it myself earlier this year (and it’s hugely reduced in the sale right now if you hurry!).
Stuck for time? Here is a very quick, but intense workout to work your core to the limits in less than 10 minutes! It keeps you focused and works on core strength, control AND endurance all within the timeframe! The exercises run quickly from one to the next to keep you going, and to keep the intensity high! All you need is your mat and 10 minutes peace and quiet. Take your mind off things, work hard, sweat a little, and finish with a strong, satisfied, toned core! No excuses! This is an advanced workout so be careful and work within your limits.
There is something special about getting new workout gear! It always motivates you to go for that extra workout, and you feel good even getting dressed to head out. Being dressed to impress can encourage you to work harder and just enjoy what you are doing! Today I wanted to share my latest find for pilates/yoga clothing, as so many people have commented on my items these past couple of weeks.
There are some days where we just don’t feel like going for that run or going to your fitness session, or maybe you don’t go at all? But when you complete your workout when have you ever said “well that was a bad idea”- Never! This lack of motivation is all in the mindset. Having the right mindset can be a HUGE influence on your training. A positive mindset gives a positive result! If we can change our attitude and outlook to exercising then you are much more likely to get on with it, complete it, and feel great! Have a think of these factors below to influence your mindset, and try THE PILATES 100 below for a daily Pilates workout.
