Is a quick Pilates workout worth it?

We know it sounds too good to be true, but we promise it’s true! With Fittbe Pilates, it has never been so easy or fun to get fit. Popular, amongst celebrities, dancers, and athletes, the effectiveness of Pilates just might blow your mind. The Best thing is that you will start to see the results fast. Founder, of the method, Joseph Pilates explained that in “In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you’ll see a difference, and in 30 sessions you’ll have a whole new body”! 

Now, ready for a shocker? Pilates has a cumulative aspect. It’s not just that the more you do, the better you will get. It’s actually that you’ll get more out of each exercise! A perfect example of this comes from the woman who formally trained me to teach back when I was 17 years old (wow, a loooong time ago). Now, to get a mental picture… This woman was supermodel gorgeous. Not skinny, but strong with these long limbs – just, wow. She was in her mid 50’s. As she stood in front this group of eager, green, soon to be teachers, she described that she could get her own full Pilates mat session done in about 15 minutes. 

I found myself wondering whether she was suggesting that a shorter workout was better than a long one! She then took to the mat to show us. She began with a classic warm up like imprinting and roll ups, then moved to leg circles, the clock, scissors, and beyond. To my surprise, she only did about 8 scissors. 8! The thing was, these 8 scissors, along with every other exercise she showed us, were absolutely perfect. The placement, the precision, and her mind-body connection. She worked up a sweat in 15 minutes worthy of a full hour because she deliberately put so much effort into each perfect movement.

What does this cumulative honing of your skills earn you? A method of exercise uniquely suited to give you major results. You will see and feel muscles that have been hiding, and awaken a feeling of balance and beauty! So, keep going in your practice. Keep experimenting in order to feel the connection in your own body. As you get stronger, it’s your job to make sure that you put more into your practice! Be sure to share your results with me at Fittbe Pilates. Your journey will inspire others!
