Looking for a magical way to stay strong and sculpted?
Pilates is the fitness unicorn. It's all about the shiny horn with those mythical beasts and with Pilates it's all about the sculpted core. They have rainbows and we have side bends....
We know that resistance training is critical for getting toned. Without it your muscles will atrophy or weaken. The Magic Circle is a great portable prop that can be used to strengthen your whole body. You can take it outside and try it outdoors this summer. Did you know the Magic Circle originally came from a beer keg? Joseph Pilates used the metal hoops to make this total body toning tool.
Benefits of using a Pilates Ring:
The Pilates magic circle works on symmetry in the body. The circular shape helps you see if your hands are feet are evenly placed or working. Proper alignment is crucial if you want to avoid injuries from repetitive stress on your joints.
You'll be focused on balance and form much more with the ring. It’s hard to keep it stable during certain moves and this will help to develop that unicorn ab strength.
It works on the isometric toning part of Pilates- focusing on the deeper stabilizing muscles in a slow and controlled manner.
It’s portable and lightweight. Won't take up much space in your home gym.
Why be anything else when you can be Magic Pilates Unicorn???
If you have ever wondered how unicorns get such great legs, butts, and tummies? The Pilates ring has stood the test of time. Joseph Pilates invented it over 100 years ago. Hands down it is my favorite home prop for pilates home workouts!
