If you joined us at yesterday's Racked Fit Club class at Pilates Platinum Brentwood, you're probably feeling very sore right now. You also might be feeling pretty accomplished, knowing that you are no longer intimidated by the Megaformer—the complex machine that makes Pilates work your body like no other.
Thanks to our thoughtful instructor Lindsey, yesterday's session was perfect for first-timers, and certainly made us believers in this wildly popular workout. The studio was beautiful, the music was great, the vibe was just right, and the moves were challenging yet easy to comprehend. (The complimentary thirst-quenchers from Juice on the Loose and grip socks from Sweaty Betty didn't hurt, either.)
Overall, it was a great full-body workout that we can definitely see becoming addictive in a very good way. See some recap snaps above, and be sure to join us at the next #RackedFitClub soon!
