Happy Friday!

I'm ending this week feeling so grateful. I'm grateful for this community, I'm grateful for a job that I love and I'm grateful for you.

I know many of you have been enjoying the opportunity to do Pilates at home for free. Additionally, I have loved creating this gift and watching you all take strides to improve your health and well-being.

In light of that, I challenge you to keep the gift in motion.

keep the gift in motion

What does that mean?

It means spread the love, pay it forward, bless others as you have been blessed...

If you have been blessed by the gift of free Pilates then I challenge you keep the gift in motion and bless someone else today.

A few ideas:

  • Call a friend and tell them how much you appreciate them.
  • Write a handwritten letter to someone you love.
  • Buy a stranger's coffee.
  • Leave flowers on a friend's doorstep.
  • Offer to babysit.
  • Buy someone's meal.
  • Post a photo of you and a friend on Instagram and publicly share why you love them.


What better way to kick off the weekend than by blessing someone else?

This is going to be so much fun. I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Thank YOU for your continued support and encouraging me throughout this challenge. I'm so grateful for you and this amazing community.

Today's Check-In: snap a photo and show me how you're keeping the gift in motion on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter!  Use the hashtag #28daysofpilates. If you're not on social media then simply post it in the comments. 


Oh - and don't forget to exercise! Here's your Fun Friday workout...enjoy!

(fun fact: I don't edit my videos! And I do them all in one take. I like to keep it real :) So please pardon my awkwardness at the end of today's workout!)

Have a great weekend!
