We know the colder months can sometimes keep us from our Reformer Pilates class.
But if you are tempted to hit the snooze button in the morning, or to cancel your class in the evening remember this – staying motivated this winter requires a change to only one thing: your mindset.
Yes, the cooler weather encourage eating more and doing less, but the foundation of motivation is based on two things.
The first is having a goal to aim for.
The second is clearly understanding the positive effects your actions will have on your life.
Connect with these two forces and you will always be inspired to move your body.
Constantly remind yourself of the benefits doing Reformer Pilates brings to you. You want to manage your stress levels, maintain your improved posture and bad back, have an abundance of energy and feel good in yourself rather than feeling overwhelmed and sluggish.
Warm your body the healthy way with exercise.
See you at class!
