Tell Us How You Use Pilatesology: Share your workout secrets and your story just might make the blog!

Several colleagues and clients have been intimating that Pilatesology has given them some fantastic and fun options for workouts, networking and education. 

As Pilates teachers, you can be a fly on the wall as Jay Grimes teaches a new male client that is 6’7”. Or you can attend a workshop with Siri Dharma Galliano about how the method all hangs together. It just doesn’t get any better than this folks. One can learn from the best, observing great instructors teach real people. Especially good if you are in your own private studio without the voices of other teachers swirling around and stimulating your mind. 

I have been using Pilatesology for all of the above and more. I need to keep up with my personal workout, but sometimes if I am feeling less-than-perfectly motivated I can play a little Alisa Wyatt or Kara Wily and it helps me get past that initial inertia and – of course – kicks my ass at the same time! Brilliant! Perhaps a little commando exercise…yes? Look at Tiziana go! Alisa worked out with one of my videos on the mat while she was traveling recently, filming lots of wonderful Pilates but having little time for her own Pilates. How fun that friends can help you workout wherever you happen to be in the world. 

As a Pilates enthusiast, everyone has at least a mat at home. One subscriber even created his own DIY project and built himself a proper studio mat with handles and a strap. Bravo! More on this resourceful devotee in the results post… 

One client shared Pilatesology with her co-workers intending to challenge her whole office to a “Pilatesology 10-Day-Trial Workout Challenge.” Another hoped to use her subscription to schedule her own lunchtime workouts in the privacy of her own office. 

Get new inspiration to sneak in an extra session between studio lessons and gain further autonomy in your workout. 

Challenge yourself to keep up with your favorite instructor. There’s a good chance they will be working hard and sweating just like when you workout in their studio. And during particularly nasty exercises you can curse at them and they won’t even hear you! 

What other ways have you used Pilatesology to whip yourself into shape? My friend Cindy and I want to host a Pilatesology Party!
