Petite Pilates Journey Series

Happy 4th of July week! Welcome back to our Petite Pilates Blog! This week we are sharing a few easy workout tips you can do anywhere! Avoid mental fatigue and physical plateaus by moving differently. It is easy to get stuck in a rut of the same routine and the same workout for your body. When we try new things we are exercising the mind, and different muscles in our body. We strengthen muscles we did not even know we had!

Speaking of changing things up...We are switching up our schedule for this fun 4th of July week! Don't forget to scroll to the bottom of this page to see our schedule for this week!


This week I encourage you to try one new movement each day and see how your mind and body feel! This is what I am going to try this week:

Monday: Stand any time you have a chance!

*Whether you are at work, talking to your kids, or reading a book; make the extra effort to stand! You are burning calories, making your legs and core stronger! Take that extra effort to focus on yourself!

Tuesday: As you wait for your dinner to cook, do ten standing push-ups leaning on your countertop!

*This makes great use of waiting time. This movement will work your arms and your shoulders and as an added bonus your core as well!

Wednesday: When you walk up the stairs, stop for 30 seconds and stretch your calves! Place your toes on the edge of the stairs and let your heels hang off.

*This will stretch and strengthen your calves and help prevent injury!

Thursday: It's 4th of July!! Include your family and try out a new game! Either cornhole, wiffle ball, or a wave jumping competition!

*Make sure to get into whichever activity you choose! Not only will you be having fun and spending time with your family, but you will be MOVING YOUR BODY!

Friday: Play a game with your kids, your husband or challenge yourself - see how long you can hold your arms straight out to your sides. Try holding a water bottle or can for an extra burn. Turn it into a game of freeze tag

This easy movement will leave your arms looking exactly like Miley Cyrus!

Saturday: Try outside morning yoga! Head to your backyard and get your body moving on this gorgeous Saturday! It is the perfect way to restore and revitalize!

*Try this YouTube video for yoga inspiration:

Sunday: Dance party with your family! End the night playing your favorite song and shaking your body! It takes just a few minutes and you will break a sweat if you do it right!

*You will be stretching your body with the movement, elevating your heart rate while burning calories through that movement and laughter!

Red White & Burn Bootcamp: Clebrate our nation's independence with a Star Spangled Workout! This sparkly class alternates between cardio BLASTS and POPS of full body weight training.

Festive Forever Fit: Join us for this balance, stretching and strengthening class filled with celebratory music!

A perfect time to bring a friend or family member for festive line-dancing for some active movement.

Star-Spangled Summer Sculpt: It is so important to work all those muscles you often forget about! Chistle your muscles by focusing on your body and mind! This slower movement class will lengthen, tone, and strengthen your muscles after a long day!
