Summer for most of us means beach trips, pool parties and picnics. I love all of them but there was time in my life when I tried to find every possible excuse to skip a trip to the beach or pool.
I was extremely self-conscious about the way I looked and didn’t feel comfortable wearing a bathing suit or any tight top. I’ve never been extremely heavy but my midline has always been my problem spot. Any time that I gain even a pound this weight settles right around my waist like a mushy fluffy doughnut.
Trying to find a “cure” for my muffintop I tried every possible form of exercise including doing obscene numbers of crunches (200 sit-ups every day was my norm for a while.) Considering the time and effort that I put into flattening my stomach my results were really unimpressive (in fact, I ended up with chronic lower back pain and had to stop any form of physical activity for a while.)

The turning point for me and my stomach was discovering Pilates. Pilates changed the way I viewed my body (I didn’t need to torture it any more!) and helped me find mindful connection to the deep core muscles that were responsible for flattening my stomach and curing my back pain. After 7 years of doing and teaching Pilates I am still in love with this form of exercise.
Today I want to share with you a Pilates for Abs video that I recorded for my Pilates website PilatesBridge.com as part of the Bikini Body Rescue program #BikiniBodyRescue (it is a free Pilates and nutrition program designed to make you feel and look great in just 3 weeks. You can join it for free or read more about it here .)
