So Begins the Pilates

On Tuesday morning, I begin pilates lessons. I am super nervous, because I've never taken pilates, or used a reformer machine. I signed up for 6 duet lessons with my best friend, A. It is quite the financial investment, as these are expensive lessons. A has been taking lessons for a few months now and I can see the results. She has been raving about it, so we decided to take them together. She says that her favorite thing (and I quote) is that "it literally gives you a hard ass". Haha. I look forward to that.

I've really been making an effort to get in shape lately. Mainly because I've let my fitness go since I met and started to "nest" with B. Also, now is the best time to start because I have 15 months until our wedding. There is a "Bridal Bootcamp" class I am also interested in taking. Has anyone ever used a reformer machine? Should I be so nervous?

Oooh... I love the reformer. There is no way you can cheat. You must use your abs! My lower abs are fairly flat because of the amount of Pilates I do. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress!
