Finding a workout you love and committing to it, whether it's with accountability from friends, listening to your favorite music, finding a place that you enjoy going to, signing up for a monthly membership and needing to get your money's worth - whatever it is that motivates you go with that and eventually it becomes a part of your daily or weekly life.
Recently I had the opportunity to try out Pilates ProWorks Seattle with Jenn and a few other friends, a new studio in the heart of south Lake Union, a beautifully light filled space with encouraging instructors, it's an intense 45min workout that leaves you breathless and feeling strong.
If you can't tell by my facial expressions, it was a butt kicker, and a good learning experience for me, I had never used a pilates FitFormer machine before. I was impressed, and sore the next day. I love a workout that is low impact with high results, although I was unsure of what I was doing, I wasn't the least bit intimidated and felt at ease, albeit off-centered for sure!
And now I know all the crazy faces I make while working hard.
Thank you to Brooks for providing kick butt workout clothes, because it's also always helpful to feel good in your workout wear. Major shout out for these high-waisted leggings, they are my favorite.
