One of my favourite workouts is Pilates on the Ball (PoB). It’s so unique – combining a bouncy ball with Pilates exercises – and oh so beneficial!
My first fitball class was with an amazing instructor and Physio, Lisa Westlake at a fitness conference. I loved it and felt the benefits of better posture and breathing almost immediately! I set about learning everything I could about exercising with a fitball – attending courses, buying every book and DVD I could lay my hands on.
Something similar happened with Pilates!
I was lucky enough to teach Fitball classes and Pilates courses across Perth (and sometimes on the Isle of Wight!), but really wanted to find a way to combine the two. So, I managed to persuade a gym to let me run an 8 week program and from the feedback I got, knew I was onto something!
One of the most amazing things about PoB is the immediate results. After one session of PoB, you feel taller and lighter. After a few sessions, your core and posture become stronger, you have more balance and control, you learn how to breathe correctly and so on.
PoB classes run at 6.30pm every Monday (except Public Holidays) in Scarborough – check out the http://www.choosehealthy.com.au/about page for more details ?
