Summertime is perfect for hitting the beach, exploring new places, and soaking up the sun. But what about your Pilates practice? How do you make sure to stay on track with your goals during these fun-filled months? Here are 5 tips from ProHealth Pilates to help you keep up your Pilates practice this summer.
1. Mix Up Your Pilates Routine
You know when it’s a great time to amp up your Pilates practice? The summer! You’ll most likely change your schedule during summer, so why not try out a new class at ProHealth. You might find the perfect addition to complement your weekly Pilates session which has been running smoothly ever since the New Year. If you’re very committed to your Mat Class, come and try a Reformer class with the Konnector series. Love your equipment class? Try a mat class. Not only is it fun, but your body will thank you for the new challenge.
2. Change Up The Scenery
Joseph Pilates said “By all means never fail to get all the fresh air and sunshine that you can.”
Do Pilates at the beach or in a park for a refreshing change of scenery. Find a flat, shady spot with your mat and start moving. Don’t forget the sunscreen and water!
3. Invest in a Good Quality Mat and Pilates Equipment
If you’re traveling this summer, that doesn’t mean your Pilates practice has to hit the pause button. There are excellent pieces of travel friendly Pilates equipment. Invest in a good quality mat you can use both inside and outside. Thera-bands and light hand weight take up minimal space and are very versatile. Even if you can’t do a full hour, squeezing in 15 minute mini sessions will keep you active and fresh in your Pilates routine.
4. Join an Online Pilates Class
Did you know ProHealth Pilates offers virtual classes? Keep connected into the ProHealth community this summer by logging into your favorite class via livestream. ProHealth has 6 weekly virtual classes including Mat, Better Bones and Reformer. You’ll still get teacher feedback and keep in touch with your Pilates friends.
5. Team Up with an Accountability Partner
Summertime is a great opportunity to get into a routine of regular exercise, like pilates. But it’s also easy to let that go when life gets busy with traveling and social engagements. Find an accountability partner to help you stay on track. Invite a friend to join you in Pilates class or take your mat to the park for an outdoor workout. Pilates is a great way to get in shape, have some fun, and hang out with friends.
