What's your Movement Goal for 2023?
If you're anything like me - and millions of people around the world, you've probably got some new year's resolutions about moving more or want to reset or get back to some good movement habits. Not sure where to start? We can help......
Want to get stronger/more toned?
If you're wanting to get stronger, you'll need some resistance training. We'd suggest Pilates Reformer or Tower. If you'd like to get your cardio in at the same time - try Pilates HIIT or Barre.
Want to get fitter/lose weight?
You need some more cardio in your week. We'd suggest coming along to Barre, Pilates Punch, Pilates HIIT or Reformer Athletic. These classes will get your heart rate up, help you build cardiovascular endurance and lose weight.
Want to get more flexible?
It's time to roll out your yoga mat. Think you're not flexible enough for yoga? That's what props are for. We have several different yoga styles on offer - so there's one to meet your goals and personality. Keep an eye out for our Yoga for Men course coming in February.
Want to find more zen?
You need to join a Yin class or our monthly Yoga Nidra Class. Yin is perfect if you need to disconnect and relax and great for those new to yoga as well as more experienced practitioner. It's also an ideal supplement o any strength work - to stretch out those tired overworked muscles. Feel more comfortable in the reformer room or want to add some resistance to your Yin practice? Watch out for our new monthly Reformer Yin classes in 2023.
So that's all great in principle, but you're busy with work and family.... how do you make it happen?
You need to commit to it and make it a priority. While I know it seems challenging, 2-3 hours a week is totally do-able - if you plan for it and prioritise doing something for yourself and your health (you deserve it!).
As they say, Rome wasn't built in a day and the way to see results is to commit to the process. My tips for making it happen (and I'm not suggesting I nail this all the time!):
book in to class - better yet, book ahead for the next month
block it out in your diary
commit to walking/running/going to class with a friend (and then block it out in your diary)
set yourself a goal (like 8 classes a month) and then reward yourself when you hit your goal (a girl can never have too many leggings - but your motivation might be different!)
