As a first time Pilates-doer, I definitely had my reservations about the workout - but they were drowned in my excitement to try something new. I liked the sound of a workout that was based around the core, because I can always judge my all-round fitness by how strong my core is. Being a kiteboarder, I am practically obliged to walk around all ab-tastic and strong, but living in the city has its disadvantages, and sadly, these days I am getting the most exercise when I am shuffling around my corner at the office, while sitting in my chair.
CoreSuspend is a workout developed by OptionsStudio to combine the benefits of Nurac treatments with a workout that focuses on building your core-strength - and is extremely fun! All the stretching and balancing combined, is supposed to leave you feeling taller, and toned up, both of which I absolutely felt after my session.
My favorite moves were the plank (for very obvious reasons) and an invert they kindly let me try. I'm sure I really looked like an upside down monkey, but I'm also thinking, that's what its probably supposed to look like, although at second glance, I should have probably tucked my butt in a little bit more.
- Pilates for sports conditioning
- Pilates for leisure
- Pilates for postural correction (back pain, shoulder issues and many more.
- Pilates for rehab clients (led by qualified physiotherapists)
Honestly, it was really hard to peel myself off the ropes, I was just monkeying around and having the time of my life, just as the next class was coming in. This now means I am seriously considering installing my own ropes in my apartment (DON'T TELL MY LANDLORD) haha
