I don’t just love Pilates because I enjoy navigating through its 50 Shades of Grey looking equipment. Pilates carves and shapes my muscles like no other workout. I usually take 3 Pilates reformer classes a week – 1 traditional/classical and 2 endurance.
The picture above shows my twin Samantha Abrantes and I at endurance Pilates studio FitMix in Los Angeles. She explains, “Endurance Pilates is an advanced faster pace class while still honoring classical Pilates technique. When taking this type of class expect to sweat, shake and feel challenged.” Boy is she right.
Since a Pilates reformer is too big (and expensive) to have at home, I use a resistance band to simulate some of my favorite exercises when I can’t make it to class. You can also use ankle weights, dumbbells or no gym accessories at all.
Here we go abs!
