Pilates for Christmas?

So the Christmas season is upon us again.   Christmas fare is on the shelves (is it getting scarily earlier each year?!) Michael Buble is out of hibernation and our diaries are filling up with places to be and people to meet. And Christmas should be about spending time with the people we love and making special memories.

Most of us will put off thinking about getting fit until the New Year. In fact the most common New Year’s resolution is “to get fit and lose weight”. But why wait until January? Why put off tomorrow what you can do today? If you start now come January it will already be part of your routine and will seem a whole less daunting.

If you are wondering what exercise regime to adopt why not consider Pilates? Pilate classes will not only reshape your body but will help to improve strength, flexibility, stability and posture and is a great way to relieve any unwanted stress and tension. Just what you need to help prepare you for the busy Christmas season.

Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates and one of his famous quotes is

“In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 sessions you will see the difference and in 30 sessions you will have a completely new body”

Starting a course before the January rush will see you well on the way to achieving your goals.
