Can I just say that I hate working out. There, it’s out there – I will admit it. I cringe at the thoughtof having to work out – I would rather wash windows than workout. And I hate washing windows – it is the equivalent of torture to me. Am I getting my point across here?
That being said, I was first introduced to Pilates on a Reformer in September 2011 when I went to Florida to visit one of my best friends. She is a Pilates teacher out there and I went to a couple classes she was teaching. I loved rolling around the reformer machine rather than doing Pilates on the mat because it was just fun and took my mind off the fact that I was working out.
So once I started commuting to Fresno for work, I looked for a Pilates studio with reformer machines – because there was no way I was going to even think about going to a mat class ever again (yes, the reformer is that fun). And that was when I found Brandy of Brand E Pilates. I know nothing about Pilates – just that I like the machines. It was obvious that everyone in the class had been going for awhile, so I felt a little bit like an outsider but they quickly welcomed me as one of their own. And Brandy is a fantastic instructor and very patient with me when I have no idea what I am doing, or when I am about to fall off the box. Because lets get real – I have lost my balance and almost fallen a couple times. When that happens I act that I still have my s*it together and hope that no one saw.
Classes are an hour long and it goes by so so fast! Except for when we do abs – then it feels like forever because I have the weakest abs in the world!
Be sure to check out the Brand E Pilates website to view pictures of what the studio looks like and what its like during class – I had the opportunity in April to take some pictures of classes for her website You can also find the studio on Facebook!
If you are interested in coming out to a class with me let me know! I just started going again after a couple month hiatus and I would love to have you along with me! And Pilates is the perfect way to get toned up for your wedding!
