An important part of any weight loss plan is to include some type of daily exercise. Whether you like to run on the treadmill or take a cardio class, keeping active will not only help you lose weight, but it can also keep you healthier and stronger.

A program that makes use of pilates can offer a number of excellent benefits. This type of program uses slow, precise movements aimed at building core strength. It is similar to yoga, but with more intensity. With a strong core, you’ll have better balance and ease of movement.

Pilates is an excellent way to burn calories while tightening and toning your entire body. There are some exercises that require special equipment, but there are also many that can be done at home with nothing more than a DVD and an exercise mat. Whether you go to a gym or you prefer a home workout, most people see significant results in a matter of a few short weeks.

I'm a fitness nut. I know what you're thinking, one of these people who has never been fat a day in her life, and can eat whatever she wants. The truth is I struggled with my weight growing up and lived in a household where everything seemed to be fried. Once I got away from home I realized I had the choice to eat and exercise how I wanted. I've gained a lot of insight into working as a personal trainer, and feel I can relate to others that were in my situation. I think if I can do it then you can to, and if you want to start kicking butt then hop on board and lets get started.
