Pilates Portable Studio

Pilates is a form of exercise that helps to improve your core strength, tones and stretches your muscles and improves your overall level of fitness. You can do Pilates workouts at the gym supervised by a trained Pilates instructor or you can try it at home. The Pilates Portable Studio is designed for home use as well as gym exercises. Make sure you know how to do the exercises before you try them at home.

If you like the Pilates Reformer, you can get the same great toning, strengthening and flexibility workout at home with the Portable Studio. You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy the Portable Studio at home. It’s easy to use and comes with an illustrated exercises guide. It’s a simple piece of equipment that consists of a bar with 2 resistance bands. You can adjust the length of the bands for a more vigorous workout too. Take the time to focus on the instructional DVD so that you perform the exercises with proper form to reduce your risk of injury.

You can do dozens of effective exercises using the Portable Pilates Studio. Exercises, such as the V-sit, single leg drop and leg circles work your legs, glutes and core. You can firm and tone your arms and upper body by doing elevated curls, chest pulls and the overhead press. Elevated curls and the shoulder press are especially effective to work the triceps on the back of your arm.

The Pilates Portable Studio is effective for firming, toning and strengthening when used properly. The key is that you have to use it. It won’t work if it is gathering dust in your closet. One of the major benefits of the portable studio is it’s simple, easy-to-use design. It works like a Reformer but without the bulk. It’s easier to use than resistance bands alone because you don’t need a door frame or wall mount to stabilize the bands. You can hold the bar with the band handles looped over your feet or stand on the bar and pull the bands with your arms or legs.

Before you start pulling on the Portable Studio bands, thoroughly read the instructions. Don’t try any exercises until you are confident that you understand the moves and proper form. See your doctor for a check-up before you begin any exercise program. Stop exercising immediately if you experience pain. Seek medical attention if pain is severe or does not subside. Wear appropriate workout clothing when exercising. Drink plenty of water before, during and after exercise to avoid dehydration. Check the condition of your home exercise equipment before each use. Don’t use the Pilates Portable Studio if you notice any tears, loose connections or frayed handles. Store your equipment in a safe place away from children and pets.
