What did you think of yesterday’s ab workout? Challenging huh? Don’t worry. It will get easier as you get stronger. All you have to do is keep moving forward. Little by little, day by day. If there’s one thing I know for sure…Pilates works.

“Finding time to workout while maintaining a full time job, and caring for a home, social life, and marriage is really hard. Robin’s 40-minute sculpting workouts made it so MANAGEABLE (one of my favorite words during the program). Also, the workouts were no joke — despite the length, every one packed a lot of power. I loved that. I also began to LOOK FORWARD to working out because I found Robin’s demeanor to be very life giving and nurturing.
It’s difficult to put into words how uplifting the program was to me. My husband started noticing Week 1 that I was smiling more. I also noticed that I was pulling out old clothes that I hadn’t worn in months (or years!). I felt like I gained a new wardrobe without spending more money.
The PBP is well worth the investment. The program is complete and I’m still doing the workouts. Robin is a gem. Being given the opportunity to be under her watch and care was a gift. I need the extra push mixed with gentle reminders to exercise grace.” -Christina B.

Today we’re sculpting long, lean legs with a special focus on the inner thighs. Can I get an amen? 🙂
Remember to focus on lengthening your body throughout the entire series. Draw your waist in, lengthen the neck and breathe, no matter what body part you’re focusing on. Pilates should always be complete coordination of body and mind.
