Because running is out of the picture (hopefully for not too much longer) I have decided to dedicate my workouts to pilates. In addition to home workouts focused on abs and arms I signed up for 10 pilates classes at a studio located a block from my apartment. I’ve already been to a few classes and I am in love. There are only 8 people total allowed in the mat classes and in addition to being a great core and overall strength workout, I find it incredibly therapeutic. Anyone else a fan of pilates?
