The machines at the pilates studio were old, well used, and on the verge of falling apart. New reformers have been on order for a few months, as the whole studio was remodeled and revamped at the end of last year. (More choices to get you moving!) The shipment was stalled a couple of times, but the new reformers finally arrived last week. If only I'd had my camera with me Saturday morning when I arrived for class, as the new machines had been installed! They look something like this, but with more bells and whistles. The first workout was TOUGH! I'm (somewhat) looking forward to upping my workout but, also, need to find balance. My "new" muscles keep me motivated. Feeling strong is awesome!
