After a year of doing Pilates with Cara Krupa, I feel great! I've lost 15 lbs. and I'm actually starting to see muscle tone and definition, which to me is amazing at 58 years old. I attribute my results to Cara, she's an incredible instructor!
I've been taking both Cara's Group Reformer and Jumpboard classes twice weekly for the past year. They're both great workouts that rigorously focus on varying muscle groups. The Reformer class has noticeably improved my overall strength and flexibility. The Jumpboard class is a fantastic cardio, strengthening, toning workout that targets my abs, legs, arms and endurance like no other exercise regimen I've ever done!
An unexpected benefit from participating in Group classes has been that it's really encouraged me to "try harder." There are several clients in the classes that are more seasoned and fit than I am. They make the exercises and reps required seem relatively easy, whereas, I still struggle and strain due to my lack of strength, flexibility, coordination and, dare I say, my "age." However, being in exercise classes with more fit and capable clients has really challenged me and over time I've been pleasantly surprised and encouraged with my progress. Another unexpected benefit I've found from the Pilates classes, is what I call the "Zen Mode." For me, the exercises require a lot of focus and concentration, which I find to be both mentally challenging and relaxing during that hour.
I've still got a long way to go to get and stay fit, but Pilates has finally become a welcomed part of my lifestyle. I'm truly grateful to Cara for her guidance, level of expertise and outstanding instruction methods.
