5 Things to Avoid

When Starting a Health Kick

You’d love to get into shape and feel your best, and while you’ve looked into ideas like joining the gym or signing up for bootcamp programs, the truth is it all seems like a lot of hard work! – And confusing too!

I’ve been there, and I know what it’s like to feel stuck in a rut, looking for the right solution to get back on track.
I’ve looked at all these options too, but when I found Pilates, it was a game changer.

5 mistakes women make when starting a health kick

  1. You think it has to be painful to work.

It doesn’t have to be uncomfortable or painful to be good for you. Going too hard and too fast is a sure way to halt your progress. You get injured and feel exhausted. It’s easy to then start a spiral of feeling like you’ve failed another attempt.

  1. You don’t work with the right coach

Do you feel empowered? Are you able to adapt the program to suit your needs and lifestyle? This makes all the difference to how you feel about showing up for your comittment. You need someone who will encourage you and impart the joy of exercise.

  1. You make big lifestyle changes

You don’t need to up haul your whole life to turn your health around. The secret is to make small sustainable switches. Keeping your attitude light, and having a joy around the process, will get you the success you are looking for. If it becomes a big deal in your mind, it will become a challenge and much harder.

  1. You think your injury will stop you exercising

Many of us have some part of our bodies, that isn’t quite right. Maybe it’s a dodgy knee, or a sore, achy back. With Pilates, you can still exercise and work around the limitations. Don’t let that old injury stop you from getting started. Modifications are not a cop out. You will be making it work for you. 

  1. You give up too soon

When you find what you love and are around people who make you feel good, you’ll be consistent and that’s when the magic happens. We all hear about consistency, but consider the cumulative effect of a simple lifestyle switch here and there. Before you know it, you’ll feel better.

So, where do I start?

When you learn how to do Pilates at home, you’ll find more than you bargained for. You’ll quickly gain a functional body, moving well so you can do all the activities you want and moving without pain. 

You’ll also be surprised by the benefits of how meditative your Pilates practice can be. This of course will be a key as you make those adjustments to other areas of your health.
