*** Giveaway Closed!***

Hey all! It’s my birthday today and I’ve made it tradition over the past couple years to gift YOU with a present with either a workout, giveaway, or both! (Here is year 1 birthday post and year 2 birthday post)

I had a total other routine in mind, but Friday as I was playing with my 4 1/2 year old daughter, jamming to the “Frozen” soundtrack, (Because, come on, who ISN’T jamming to that thing?!) I started piecing together a pilates routine to the song “Let it Go”. (I know, the perils of being a fitness instructor. Just can’t stop working out!)

FrozenFlutters & Core Focused Pilates Routine: www.claresmith.me

I’ve been teaching pilates for almost 10 years and it has been pivotal to both my function and look with my health. This sequence is one that is foundational to my basic pilates routine and I think you’ll enjoy it. Of course, you may add it alongside some other core training, or just do it if you only have 4 minutes. I would shoot for doing this 2-3 times a week. The good thing about this is that your daughter (or son!) can join you if they have interest when the song pops on! Nothing harmful about it at all. (Also, you can do most of this with the exception of when we go to our belly if you are prego! I did these exercises all the way up til I was 8 months with my daughter!) And if you are sick of the song, I totally understand! Just mute, or take the quick reference guide beside you and proceed!


Now onto the more fun stuff! I’ve also got a giveaway for you! My friends over at Cross Training Couture (founded by my friend, Michelle Myers!) are giving away one of their tanks to one of my readers! (You may remember them from my post last week here.) And I’m also going to giveaway a 30 minute Skype session with me!  I’ve had quite a few people asking me to do this with them (and unfortunately, time doesn’t permit me to do this regularly) so I thought you may enjoy this! I get so many emails from you all and many times, you just need a 30 minute conversation with me to sort through your questions, so I’d like to offer this to help you out!

However, I’d like you to check out the second video where I am explaining a few important things, namely how to MODIFY each exercise.  Keep in mind–CONTROL, tight tummy and remember to breathe! Slow down if you need to at any time! Watch the video one time through before doing so you have a good idea of what’s going on!
