Empower Long and Lean Total Pilates with Gin Miller (a review)

November 13, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

I found the Empower Long and Lean Total Pilates with Gin Miller kit at a local sporting goods store for about 20 bucks. It comes with Miller’s Pilates Bar and a workout video.

Two days later, and my core is still on fire. I didn’t think it would be because the moves aren’t that complicated, but I was sooo wrong.  Plus, there’s a bonus Arms workout at the end that makes the biceps and triceps really work.

Martial arts requires a strong core which Pilates can help develop. Plus, I have found that by varying the types of workouts that I do, whether it’s strength training, Pilates, Yoga, running, and yes martial arts, it keeps me from getting bored.

I have a Reformer at home, but no space for it at the moment. This workout uses similar movements with the bar that’s included in the set. That’s great for me until I get a chance to clear out some space in my house for the reformer. Hmmm… perhaps I can convince my husband to give up his playroom? 😀

I included a short teaser for the video so you can see what the bar looks like and the exercises Miller has her student perform:
