Hello loves! Today I am going to talk a bit about one of my favorite things to do in the morning, aka working out. I am a huge believer in the benefits of working out first thing in the morning. It helps wake you up, promotes making healthier choices during the day, and it’s a great way to give yourself some one on one time. For me, working out is almost like meditation, especially when it comes to Pilates.
I switched my workout routine from weight training to Pilates and I LOVE it. Although I loved to challenge myself through weight lifting, Pilates has been a different way to challenge myself while getting great results. Pilates is a mixture of strength training and yoga. With the little bit of yoga incorporated in the workout, Pilates is a great way to clear your mind. When doing Pilates, you are constantly work out your whole body and it’s an amazing way to really lean out. I have been doing Pilates 6 days a week for a few months now and I am addicted!! I also love that this is such a great option for when you want to workout at home or when you’re traveling. There are PLENTY of options for doing Pilates at home. Some you need to pay for and some you don’t.
One of my favorite options that you need to pay for monthly is Melissa Wood Health. Her program is only $9.99 a month and you get new workout videos each week. Her workouts consist of slow, strong movements that tone your body and give you those long lean muscle lines. I love her method because it’s relaxing and you finish your workout feeling so good. Her program also offers these amazing guided meditations that just gets you in a good mindset. I loved doing her guided meditation first thing in the morning.
Okay, going back to the FREE content you can find because it’s always great to have a free option. I have found a few videos and accounts that are available on YouTube that I love and have been seeing results with. Obviously I had to share them with you so everything will be linked!

Her workouts are challenging and leave you waking up sore, which we love right? Down below are three of my favorite workout videos of hers.

• Bailey Brown is another amazing option who has all sorts of different workouts. I love all of her Pilates and mat workouts along with her other ones. She has workout videos over 20 minutes and some as short as five minutes giving you options to fit into your day. I have so many of her workouts that I loved that it was so hard to pick but I think the three down below are my top favorites.

All of these channels have such amazing workout videos for when you want to do a quick workout at home. When I workout from home I like to do about 45 minutes – and hour Pilates. That means that I will do sometimes 3-4 different videos and it is such a good workout. So take some time for yourself and do a bit of at-home Pilate’s babe!!!
All the love,
