We know that the fall is many people’s favorite season, and that makes a lot of sense. After all, not only is the weather perfect for hot cocoa and comfy sweaters, but it’s also when the holidays arrive. This means a lot of comfort food and family feasts are in the near future. While your taste buds might appreciate it, your waistline might not. So what can you do to enjoy the season without sacrificing your figure or health?
Pilates is a great way to stay in in shape, or start getting in shape, for the holidays. It doesn’t take a lot of time to tighten and tone, which means that you can fit workout sessions into your busy fall schedule. It’s also easy to tailor your Pilates practice based on your energy level, so you don’t have to skip a workout just because you’re beat from a long day.
Pilates can be done in the studio of course, but it can be done with little more than a mat and the will to workout. This makes it a bit easier to fit your workout into your day, even if you can’t make it into the studio. You can also sneak off during a family gathering and put in a few minutes of mat time. Remember, exercise is cumulative, so those multiple shorter sessions can add up to big benefits!
And of course, Pilates is a great way to reduce stress. Even a few minutes of practice can relieve muscle tension and help you get your head into a more positive mental space. This makes it the perfect exercise option for the stressful holiday season.
The best thing about Pilates,however, is that you don’t need to be a master in order to see benefits. Even a beginner will see improvements to how they look and feel from their first session. This makes Pilates a great option for your fall workout routine, even if you’ve never stepped foot into a Pilates studio.
