Pilates Summer Series – Day #1 – ABS

Hi Beauties,

Welcome to the first official day of the 2015 Pilates Summer Series!

I’m SO excited that you’re joining me on this 3 week journey to prepare our bodies for the summer season.

Pilates Summer 2015 - 1

I’ll be bringing daily FREE workouts for the month of May. In addition to the daily workouts I’ll be sharing loads of healthy summer recipes, summer-prep ideas and tips to up your confidence before slipping in to your bikini this year.

My hope is that this will me MORE than a workout plan. I hope it will be a month full of self-care, body appreciation and positive change.

I want us glow with confidence this year. No shame, no insecurity, no hiding.

Remember our mantra…we will NOT be afraid of our bikinis this year.

Can I get an amen?

Don’t be fooled, doing a little bit each day will add up to a lot by the end of the month. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do.


So without further ado, let’s workout!

Today we’ll be working our abs from all angles. This quick but effective routine will help you connect to your core while challenging your stability and strength. I hope you enjoy it!
