I can’t believe that it is October. The past two months have been a bit of a blur. I promised myself I would get this blog off the ground, but life got in the way. NO more excuses. Today is a new day, and here we go!
Tuesday morning I had the opportunity to attend a mat based Pilates class. This Restore the Core class was provided by Karna Fitness of Allen, Frisco and Plano (north). It’s a 45 minute class that concentrates on strengthening the transverse abdominals, while addressing the other core muscles. Often times after pregnancy, these muscles need a little extra attention to help bring them back to the tight girdle they were prior to expanding through pregnancy. Deep breaths and slow, purposeful movements aid in strengthening these muscles. Measurements are taken during the first week and after the last week, so participants can see their progress. In the past when I attended this class, I lost up to 7 inches in my waist, hips and thighs. It is an amazing class! I can definitely feel the soreness in those deep abdominal muscles each time I laugh or cough today. I know I will see results in the coming weeks. The classes are offered once a week in a 6 week session on Tuesday at 9:15 at Stonebriar Mall in Frisco. Please visit www.karnafitness.com. To join, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
