Happy Valentine’s Day, Total Gym Lovers and Pilates enthusiasts!
Welcome to the final part of our Valentine’s series that incorporates Pilates movements on your Total Gym. This final workout focuses on dynamic flexibility exercises that help improve your range of motion and flexibility. By performing dynamic flexibility movements, you’ll be able to lengthen and strengthen your muscles into one sassy, sexy, and flexy machine!
Dynamic flexibility is the ability to actively move through a full range of motion with control and ease. Flexibility not only benefits your overall health, but it also contributes to your physical appearance. Dynamic flexibility exercises can also help improve your posture, reduce your risk of injury, and make everyday tasks easier.
Pilates workouts complement other strength workouts and help to balance out your overall fitness routine. By incorporating dynamic flexibility into the mix, it will help you develop strength and balance from the inside out. Now that’s sexy!
