Update: I finally made it!

Posted Oct 02 2007 9:47am 2 Comments

I went to bed early enough to wake up early for the Pilates on the Ball class at the gym. :) The class was better than expected. It looks like the teacher has some follower because I was the only new person and everyone else takes this class regularly.

I've heard about Pilates, but this was an interesting twist because it was using traditional Pilates moves with a stability ball (exercise ball), making every move more challenging.

I didn't walk out of the room sweating, but I defiantly got a full body workout. One of the best advantages of taking a class (or using a personal trainer) is pushing yourself. I find when I am in a class I don't want to let the teacher or myself down, so I push myself through the exercises even though I want to stop. Also, the teacher is expecting you (it's like an informal appointment), so there is more of a drive to get up in the morning and go to the gym.

Do you find that exercise classes help push you or would you rather workout by yourself?

First of all, great for making it happen by getting to the class you've been wanting to go to. Pilates is a work out I want to try. I have a friend who lives in Buffalo, NY, who is a teacher of pilates; yet I have never taken the class. With a theater background I have often heard of the benefits for core training. I want to take strictly pilates class not a mixture of practices. As far as agreements go, racquetball games gets me going. Someone there waiting to play with me. I can't let them down. Besides, I really want to play RB -- great workout.
Hey- good for you. A formal class is a good way to be regular, but exercising with a friend also works for me.
