Happiness

Happiness.
.
I help my 121 clients to be the best versions of themselves they can be.  But that doesn't mean they have to look perfect, live a perfect life or have a perfect relationship to be happy.
.
Happiness is a state of mind that is ever changing.  It's defined by the ups and downs in your life that create your happy moments. .
So for your happiness, don't compare and wish that you can achieve/ have what you see on others' Instagram posts. Your own happiness will be from your own life achievements and personal goals however small. .

Back to a barrecore class today

Back to a barrecore class today.
.
.
It's another birthday next week, (in my 60's) which reminds me that as we get older it's important to keep fit, healthy and mobile. For mind and body.
Even if the exercise is only a 20 minute brisk walk a day. Exercise should be a minimum of 3 times a week. .
.
.
I like to mix up my fitness classes each week.  Each style of class has a different purpose. 
So today is barrecore which has core and glute work,  plies and sqats,  together with ballet style barre exercises and light weights for arms.
I do Pilates once a week for core and glute strength and spinal mobility. 
30 min boxing and HIIT workout once a week for cardio and also to help weight maintenance or loss. 
Horse riding is my occasional special feel good treat especially when It's riding along the beach. 
And then there's the dog that needs a walk.... What's your weekly fitness or exercise regime? And what's your favourite class?

Back on the Pilates reformer

Back on the Pilates reformer.

Exercise for hip rotation, inner thigh muscles- the adductors, and hip control. Especially good for strengthening around the hip. 
I did this exercise as part of a series of 3 sets.  Toes turned out heels together, 
then toes turned in heels out 
and then straight. 
So using all three sets of surounding hip support muscles. .

Morning pilates exercise

Morning pilates exercise.. Mobility, spinal mobility, flexibility, core and abs strength exercise. And also back of arm muscles as they are also used to help action the movement together with the lower abdominal muscles. The movement should be smooth and controlled and not driven by body weight momentum. 
It's harder than it looks. 
Give it a go....
