How to build the body of a greek god.

How to build the body of a greek god.


Welcome, we’re glad you’re here!



During my morning workout today, I heard a voice. It was gruff with a heavy German accent:

“Rome was not built in a day.”

“PATIENCE and PERSISTENCE are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavor.” – Joe Pilates

Um, thanks Joe. (I was about to quit and go for coffee). Building your body takes time and perserverance. This simple life lesson applies to so much more than Pilates. Each time you use your willpower, you are one step closer to the body of a greek god. 

In my last newsletter, I wrote about Joe’s advice for getting outdoors and enjoying a balance of work, rest and play. This week I am taking my own advice. By the time you receive this I will be, literally, off the grid on a hiking adventure that Jack and I have dreamed of for years. I have an admission: Despite endless preparation, and a whole team in place to answer your questions and make sure everything runs like clockwork, I’m more scared of leaving Pilatesology than I am of bears, broken legs or even mosquitoes. And you know what? By the time I get back, I won’t be scared anymore.

Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone. It’s good for your brain, your body, your life.
