Thanks to everyone who tuned in to my show yesterday, it was a busy show, playing lots of new music – I won’t lie I was a little tired as the night before I went to see Bruno Mars at the O2, he was fantastic!! <3 …
It was a special treat to have Amy from Contour Pilates pop by to say hello around 11am, we had a nice chat and she told us all about her Pilates studio in Brentwood.
Amy: ‘I fell in love with Pilates nearly 20 years ago. I’ve always loved exercise and learning about the human body. Pilates seems to marry the two. I like the idea of doing something that would give me protection against injury, and an achy back in later life. I love that Pilates is a great distractor. It is a mental and physical workout. You have to think about your breathing, core engagement and neutral spine with every exercise. You also have to focus on controlling the movement, making your muscles work harder. I did matt pilates for many years. But soon realised I needed to add intensity to my exercises. The reformer seemed like the perfect solution, you can add the springs, or take them away to make each exercise more challenging. I went to two classes and was hooked. I want to bring the London studio set up to local areas. CONTOUR Pilates is a warm and friendly studio where people can get a challenging whole body workout, taught by highly experienced instructors, and have some fun doing it. You will get a challenging whole body workout in a variety of classes.’
It was lovely to have Amy in the studio talking all about Pilates, and as a Pilates fan myself, i know just how good it is! I have attended Amys studio now for a couple of months and love it. So if you haven’t heard of Pilates before then come on down and get involved! Theres many offers on too, you can find out all about these and also a free trail if you email -“firstname.lastname@example.org” . Or you can head over to the website – www.contourpilatesstudio.co.uk
Thanks so much to everyone for tuning in and a big thank you to Amy.
I’ll be back next week, ‘Live With Libby’ Sundays 10am-12pm.
