After a fairly stressful work week,  it’s amazing what an hour of pilates can do for your  mind,  let alone for the body.  Are we talking pure meditation here?  Why no, but a combination of breathing, strength and athleticism wrapped up in one class.  While I prefer the reformer versus mat version, both have incredible benefits.

As a very athletic teenager,  I played all the traditional sports:  swimming,  track, basketball and yes, even softball.  Being a total “jock” (yes, Cincinnistas can be jocks, just don’t look it:) I was un open to the idea of a “non-traditional” work-out.  However,  about a year and a half ago,  I decided that the typical long elliptical workout accompanied by sit-ups and weights weren’t cutting it.   The tone in my body and waist line were simply getting soft.  Don’t get me wrong:  I’m still 47 and no longer have my 26″ waist from my thirties,  but baby if I can fight gravity I will!
