So you may have come across this blog by accident or you may love Pilates and fitness or you may already be my friend. I am guessing no matter who you are you’re probably wondering why try out a class with Texas Green Bird Fitness? Why bother? What’s in it for me? What makes this different from anything else? So here goes.
Welcome to Texas Green Bird Fitness! I am so excited/grateful/happy that you have stopped by. My name is Lauren Whitehead and as you may guess: I love fitness. Kickboxing and bootcamps were my first foray into group fitness classes and I loved every minute of it. Then due to some injuries my body started wanting something more sustainable, a work out that was tough, but easy on my joints. I needed a work out that I could do throughout my life and this is where Pilates, barre, and yoga came in. I still sweat, I still work to the point of fatigue, and I still feel challenged. The difference is since I started doing Pilates I haven’t had an injury and it feels so good.
So that’s me, but what it’s in it for you? You’re going to have fun. You’re going to be challenged. You’re going to jam to some awesome music. You’re going to meet some great people. This work out is upbeat and comes without any pressure to go beyond what YOU can do. This isn’t my work out. This is YOUR work out. You do what YOU need. You take breaks when YOU need them and jump back in. You are stronger than you think you are and we’re going to get to that next level together. I am here to support you.
Pilates focuses on the deeper core muscles. That’s where the magic really is. It’s those deep core muscles that give you strength and make you lean. Having a six pack is great, but having a strong deep core is functional. Using a mix of Pilates, barre, and yoga will build leg strength, build upper body strength, and give you balance.
If that’s not concrete enough for you then just come try out one class. Your first WEEK is free. It’s January, the time to try new things and start new habits. Let’s work it.
