Standing Splits on Reformer Machine

 

With my respirtory not as fabulous as I’d like, I’ve had to turn to non-impact cardio. At first, I thought these workouts would simply help with flexibility and mobility, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. I walk, or really limp, out of those pilates reformer classes sweating as though I’d just done a major cardio workout. I stand up straighter, I walk with confidence, and I feel sleeker in my legs and hips.
It’s quite an ego boost twice a week to finish the class without needing an AED machine.
Not only has my strength improved, I’m building muscle like crazy and it’s helped me with my Kung Fu class.
So, no I’m not losing a ton of weight, but I am getting healthier and that’s the entire point of this, isn’t it?
