My day is never without one of my hugest passions.
A fitness regime that keeps me in great shape, a healthy happy mind and a discipline that keeps me focused in everyday life.
It’s never a chore always a dream to do my Pilates workout. I exercise with other fitness forms too to keep the body challenged and ensure other muscles are worked too. Cross training is key to a healthy happy heart too. They often say it gets tougher as you get older and with hitting 50 in July I have surprised myself as I feel better than I have ever felt.
Maybe because I am now reaping the benefits of having kept myself in great shape all my life and not left it too late… But it’s never too late to achieve a healthy, active lifestyle and see the incredible benefits it brings you. You will never look back but you have to want to do it for you and no one but you.
Not a day goes by without someone saying to me “I want your arms!” or “I want your flat tummy.” I simply reply you can’t have mine but with a little hard work and discipline you can have your own. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
One of the ways to achieve a lean, sculpted body is by working out on the AeroPilates machine. Start slowly by watching the DVD and gradually build up to what you are comfortable with.
I remember doing my first Pilates workout on the machine and thinking “what’s all the fuss about, it’s so awkward and uncomfortable.” But I stuck with it and years later, I am dedicated to 1.5 hours a day (two if I have time) and then my cardio session ending with a stretching routine. I simply love it.
Over the years I have added the Magic Circle, box and pole, the SpinGym, an ab ball and a yoga block. They all give me a different dimension to my workout so I never get bored. You may want to try adding one of these if you already have the machine. I love my AeroPilates Pull Up Bar too and couldn’t do without my machine being on the stand. If you are a beginner be brave and take that step to a healthier you.
I also live for my green juice each day which gives me plenty of energy and great skin.
Vitamix makes it a treat to make & drink.
Here’s to a healthier happy you!!
