About the Series

Mat Pilates has been around for decades and this series introduces new, fresh and modern variations to your workout routine. It takes the best from traditional Pilates and other bodyweight exercises to create a fun and effective fusion series so you can slim down and tone up!

I’ve been teaching this fusion-Pilates method for years for a wide variety of clients ranging from everyday students to celebrities and athletes. One thing I’ve noticed during my time as an instructor and owner is that everyone wants the same thing: a strong, toned body with long and lean muscles, and that's exactly what you get with this series!

Each week we will repeat five full-body workouts. All consist of a warm up, a fun fusion of various bodyweight exercises to get you sweating, and then we’ll finish with soothing stretches. My classes touch a bit of everything: Pilates to lengthen, barre to strengthen and tone, yoga to stretch and restore, and even some old-school aerobics to jumpstart your heart rate!

By focusing on under-used and under-developed muscles, we’ll create length and strength while challenging your body to move in ways it isn’t used to! Plus, my workouts divert away from using the over-developed muscles, which give you that bulk.

    This class is going to have the most stretching of all our videos. It’s a perfect way to get prepped for our week and month ahead. But don’t worry, there's plenty of core...

    Today’s warm-up has a little choreography, but don’t let that intimidate you! We’ll go through it twice, which will allow you time to pick up the movements. But be patient!...

    There are always two options: you can push through or you can bail out, but I highly recommend you stick with it and keep going!! You’ve done a great job so far so don’t stop!

    When you get to the point where you don’t think you can push through, but you hold out for just a few more seconds, that’s where you see results!

    Although the handweights are only a couple pounds, we hold them for quite some time and it gets challenging really quick!

    Remember the tuck and curls we did last week? Here we go again! Isn’t it crazy how such a small movement creates such a burn?? I love that about these workouts!
