It’s been 10 months since Junior came into our lives. He has been worth every stress wrinkle, stretch mark, and blouse stained with spit-up.
He will NOT, however, be the excuse for me being out-of-shape.
I used to run races.
I used to climb mountains.
I used to climb mountains pregnant. (about 5 months along here)
I needed to get back in shape. So I tried out CORE40, a fitness studio with various locations in San Diego County. The first class is free for new students so I had nothing to lose.
I took CORE40 Pilates: Foundation, which involved these massages beds.
JK. They’re not massage beds, they’re called megaformers. They make things harder.
With a c-section, my core strength was virtually nilch. Pilates will help to bring that back, and boy did I feel sore the next morning.
It was the perfect combination of high intensity, stretches, and cardio to help me get back to the woman I used to be.
A bonus perk to the class, there is only a set number of megaformers, so you know you will never be “sardined” into a fitness class. Plenty of space, plenty of one-on-one help, if needed.
If you happened to be in the San Diego area, check out CORE40
