LESLEY LOGAN is a PMA Certified Pilates Teacher and has been studying and teaching Joseph Pilates Classical Method since 2005 and 2008 respectively. She also has eight years of retail management experience, and six years managing studios regionally for Equinox fitness clubs. Hooked after her very first class in Orange County, Lesley arranged her schedule to take Pilates classes every day. This enthusiasm moved her to Los Angeles, where Lesley completed a 600 hour Classical Pilates Teacher Training. Soon after, Lesley completed a Masters Pilates Program from The Pilates Center in Boulder, CO, while training elite marathon runners for Nutribullet’s first Los Angeles Marathon. Her love for learning the method didn’t stop there, as she became the Lead Teacher Trainer for Equinox Pilates and led dozens of apprentices through their program from 2012-2016. In 2013 Lesley was voted ‘Best Pilates in Los Angeles’ by Los Angeles Magazine, featured in Pilates Style Magazine, can be seen on PilatesAnytime.com, and recently has completed “The Work,” a masters program taught by one of Joseph Pilates “Elders,” Jay Grimes. Maintaining that Pilates is a unique practice that is right for everybody, Lesley tailors the method for each client. Her goal is to help them connect their mind to their core, creating intentional body awareness so they can move from their center, be taller and stronger than when they walked in. You can find Lesley teaching Mat Classes at Yogaworks in Los Angeles or instructing private clients at Westwood Pilates. She also offers online business courses for beginning to advanced Pilates instructors, studio owners and teacher trainers at her website, ProfitablePilates.com, and leading groups on Pilates retreats.
A Easy But Fast Plan To Lose Belly Fat After 40, 50 ,60
Often people fail to get in shape because they aren’t motivated. If you know how to make exercise enjoyable, you won’t dread it! Read on for some tips to get you going.
Listen to your favorite tunes while you workout. Listening to music is a natural way to encourage yourself to get moving. Working out to music is like dancing, which can make it more enjoyable. You will not even notice how tired or sore your muscles are when you are enjoying yourself. Music can really boost your motivation to finish up those last few reps.
When you are ready to exercise, bring your friends. A workout will go so much more quickly when you have good company. You can enjoy the company of others, while ignoring all those little signals your body is trying to use to convince you to stop. It’s a great way to fit social activities into a busy schedule. Sharing time with friends is always fun, and it will make your exercise period go much faster.
One of the new ways in which entertainment and working out have been mixed together is through video game workouts. It is easy to forget you are exercising when you are playing a game and having a good time. It is less likely that you are will get tired or frustrated and stop your routine.
If you look and feel good in your exercise clothes, your desire to workout and achieve your fitness goals will be greatly enhanced. Check out the many different colors and styles available. Use your imagination and personal style when choosing an exercise outfit. This way, you will feel comfortable and motivated to work out.
Since exercise routines can get boring quickly, be prepared to change up your routine often. You won’t really want to exercise if you dread doing it, so finding new and interesting ways to exercise is a must. It’s vital to maintain your dedication. Once you halt your exercise program, or miss a few days of exercise because you’ve become bored with the routine, you will find it difficult to start exercising again. You will have lost your motivated momentum.
Once you have reached one of your goals, you need to be rewarded. Even a simple reward can help motivate you. When you are going to reward yourself buy yourself something you want. Pick a reward that is accessible and affordable, but make it something that you really want. Working for something you really want will give you more motivation.
Exercise can be wonderfully entertaining. Don’t feel miserable about having to do it. Many workout options exist which can make exercise seem like fun. Keep these points in mind when starting a fitness regime.
