How I got involved with Pilates in the first place.
After having my son feeling sexy was a far-fetched fantasy. My body changed in ways I never thought were possible. Even before having my son I hated how my body looked. I did the same old thing everybody did. I walked myself into those big gyms and went as hard as I could.
Well, after a few months I was looking better but my body felt and looked like a square box, I felt better in my clothes and I was finally able to look at myself in the mirror without being disgusted.
But there was still something missing, I wasn’t feeling sexy about how I looked and felt. I knew something had to give, sure I’m a mom but I wanted a sexy slim physique and there was no way my body should stay like this.
I secretly envied the sexy looking bodies I’d see on TV and I wanted to feel and look sexy in and out of clothes.
I jumped in and tried Pilates; I thought what the heck why not. I can’t explain what an amazing feeling it was after one workout. I felt muscles I never knew I had and my entire body felt tighter and firmer.
As I continued my Pilates workout my body changed drastically. The full body workouts and deep core exercises transformed my square sloppy frame into a slim toned physique. My stomach is flat and tight, my waistline smaller (something I never thought possible after having a baby) I developed lean, tone, muscle definition in my legs and arms.
Pilates was the missing link to looking and feeling Sexier and Younger, I now walk taller, leaner and with confidence. People are shocked when they find out I have a 10 year old. I give the Pilates Bodyweight System credit for keeping me in the fittest shape possible to attain the physical goals of feeling and staying youthful.
