Why I'm addicted to Pilates + my favorite leggings by Jala

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Yep. This is how addicted I feel to my fitness now. It lifts me up. It makes me positive. It makes me strong in spirit, body and mind. Plus, it's fun.

They say that you need to find your addiction, the one workout or class or trainer that keeps you going back for more. I know I've found mine in Pilates.

I look forward to every single class (even on the days when I'd rather stay in bed - I know I'll feel better once I go). The camaraderie and girl time is like no other. Never before have I felt so supported and motivated than when surrounded by these kindred spirits.

Even when our trainer, Tabitha seriously kicks our butts - the pain is so worth the gain and simply put, I'm a lifer now. 

Some tips for newbies to Pilates... Don't get discouraged. In the beginning I found just about every move a struggle. It will get easier. You just have to commit.

Also, find a good, thick mat. (I always score amazing ones at TJ Maxx) Make sure it's extra thick and long.

Another tip? Do yourself a favor and invest in a few new workout outfits that you can mix and match and that make you feel great. One of my new faves? Jala clothing.

Every time I wear these Jala Peak Leggings, people stop me to ask where I got them. They're a little bit of an investment, but anything of true quality is. Also, Jala is offering a promo code of 25% off for Memorial Day with code MD25 until May 31st, 2017!

I also dig the cool tees and other separates from Jala that can be worn while running around on errands, or picking up the kiddos, or let's face it - when you're too busy after a workout to get your shower in right away! (See my last workout post featuring Jala here.)


I hope you found some fitness inspiration! Wishing you friendship, health and peaceful happiness.

Use PROMO CODE MD25 for 25% off Jala Clothing until 5/31/17!
