30-Day Pilates Body Challenge: Day #3

Welcome to day #3 of the 30-Day Pilates Body Challenge!

How are feeling so far?

We’re just getting started and it’s only going to get better from here. I have a lot of great things in store for you, so don’t stop now. 🙂

30 day challenge thumb day 3

Ever feel like your booty needs a little lift?

Me too.

Today’s routine is all about building strength on the backside of the body. But don’t be fooled, booty work isn’t just about looking good in jeans. A weak booty can cause a host of issues that are seemingly unrelated. For example, under-developed gluteal muscles (due to inactivity) and back pain often go hand-in-hand.

Enjoy today’s workout and the feeling of knowing that you’re doing something to improve your strength, posture and health today!

Looking good in our jeans will be a nice bonus. 🙂

Daily Check-In: Today I want you to set ONE goal for the next 30 days. It may be as simple as “complete 30 days of Pilates workouts” or it may be related to something else in your life. Take a moment to set a goal. Write it down, snap a photo and share it with me on social media. Use the hashtag #30daypilatesbody so we can cheer you on!

  32. Kristin 5 years ago

    Hi there!
    Just getting started on day 3. But Im wondering if you have the youtube video set to private? I don’t see it on your channel or my subscription videos.
    Its easier for me to log in to my youtube on my tv and watch that way.
    Just making sure that will still be an option in the future?
    Thanks for this awesome 30 day challenge btw! Loving it!

    • Robin Long 5 years ago

      We forgot to switch it to public this morning! It should be available now. Thanks for letting us know. 🙂

    Love the challenge but struggled with this one as I am so overweight. Lifting my legs almost impossible can I modify with just repeating the first Couple moves?

    • Robin Long 5 years ago

      Absolutely you can! Just work with where you’re at. Remember, we all start somewhere. And don’t compare yourself to me – I’ve been doing this a long time! Start there and just stick with it. Trust me, it WILL pay off. 🙂
