WHY PILATES IS SEXY
Pilates is known for its ability to tone, sculpt, and define long and lean muscles. When the exercises are executed properly with correct form, an active breath, and complete core control, the movements can help you achieve long, lean, and sexy muscles. The Total Gym is the perfect piece of equipment to help you perform Pilates movements. Your body weight along with the incline provides the perfect resistance needed to target specific areas, build overall strength, length, and muscular tone.
A strong body not only looks good, but will improve your posture, increase your energy levels, and make everyday activities easier to perform. Incorporating Pilates into your routine is a great way to strengthen your core, improve your balance, and build overall muscle tone.
The exercises in this routine are just a handful of Pilates movements that you can perform on your Total Gym. Incorporating Pilates exercises into your strength training routine will help you build muscle tone and overall strength, which will make you feel and look great every day.
Now let’s heat up those sexy muscles with Pilates strength exercises that you will love.
