What do you get when you combine Pilates with bodyweight exercises and cardio moves?

An all-over shaping workout that will help lengthen your muscles while

keeping your heart rate up to burn extra calories.

Cardio Tone 1

I am a huge fan of mixing up workout strategies and approaches.  It is really important to learn how to use your body in different planes to improve overall fitness and function to minimize your chance of injury both during a workout and throughout your daily activities.  That is why I incorporate Pilates and yoga into routines, to help you develop strength throughout a full range of motion.
