Pilates Bodies

What do all of these celebs have in common (besides the fact that they're all celebs, obviously)?

I know y'all have heard me talk about my recent obsession with pilates (like here, here and here), but I really think it has changed the shape of my body.  I have always had a more athletic build with natural muscle.  I played sports in high school and continued to regularly exercise and lift light weights throughout college and adulthood.  

Pilates has changed the shape of my muscles.  Rather than building muscle, it's lengthening, toning and stretching the muscles I have.  I hold most of my tension between my shoulder blades and pilates helps relax all of my muscles, relieving any back pain that builds during the workday.

It's safe to say I'm addicted to The Pilates Studio.  Lately I've considered it like the ultimate spa -- the sound of the waterfall tower, the relaxing spa music, the smell of the candles, the stretching -- but I leave feeling stronger, relaxed and thinner.  Stay tuned for some exciting renovation and expanding announcements coming soon!

Addicted.  If you haven't tried it yet, I'm telling you -- you will love it.  Please give it a try!!  It is without a doubt one of the best things I have done for my body throughout all of this wedding stress.


  1. I recently started yoga and think I need to move into pilates. with my upcoming wedding in two months, I need to kick my butt into gear!

  2. i have gained some weight recently and it has really dragged me down.... i do lots of cardio, but i definitely think i need to change it up and add some pilates to the mix!

  3. So you are no longer just a model? Are you saying you're classified as a SUPERmodel???? I agree....

  4. Love this blog and especially this blog entry! You're right about reformer Pilates, it is wonderful in so many ways. It is great for your body but also your mind as well. So happy it's helping with wedding stress. You're going to be a knockout bride!
