It was six weeks before my son’s wedding. I was trying to decide what to wear as mother of the groom. One outfit was a sleeveless, one shoulder jumpsuit. The other was a long sleeved jacket and pants. My arms were in pretty good shape but, not quite sleeveless worthy. The six week combined TRX and Pilates Reformer class conducted by Heather and Renee was right on time.
Weddings are happy occasions. However, the details and deadlines can be stressful and involve several food centered activities. The classes provided workouts that were calorie burning, muscle toning and core strengthening. Heather‘s TRX regimens took me to the brink of my abilities while providing modifications for my individual limitations. Renee’s Pilates routines complemented Heather’s by providing a joint friendly series that improved my core, breathing, overall muscle strength and balance. Additionally, those two women are infused with vibrancy and a breadth of fitness knowledge. Together they provided the perfect counter balance to any extra calories and stress that came my way.
At the end of the six weeks, my arms were sleeveless worthy. However, I wore the long sleeved one because my daughter convinced me that it was just more, Bam! That word also describes the TRX/Pilates workouts because they improved my Body and Mind during a critical period.
