Pilates Body in Motion
Pilates Sequence found in Pilates Body in Motion

I have had a lot happen in the last few days, and honestly, doing a HIT workout is the last thing on my mind. I still want to work out though, just not as intense. Enter, pilates! I love pilates; I started doing it a couple of years after I started yoga (I think I was in college, but I don't fully remember). What I love about pilates is that, unlike other low impact workouts, I can see results fast, and those results are always amazing. Toned legs, flat abs, and a perky butt, what more is there to love.

In pilates, you do the workout each time with the same exercises in the same order. Each exercise builds upon the previous one. I would recommend if you are interested in starting pilates, go to a class first to get aquatinted with the movements. When you're comfortable, you can move on to home workouts. 

Personally, I think pilates workouts are perfect for the morning. You don't build up as much of a sweat, but it gentle stretches and moves you in preparation for the day.
