Day 7: Your Hourglass Figure Body⌛, Reformer Full Body Tone Up!

Instructor: Kristine Chaussard
Level: Intermediate

Focus :   

This full hourglass figure body booty, balance, core and upper body workout will shape and sculpt you from head to toe. Plus you’ll challenge and improve upon your balance and coordination! You made it! Welcome to Week 2 of our Strength training for fat loss program, bravo you! You should be feeling proud and I hope you are ready to go. I’m excited for this week, our challenges continue and as we build one day upon the next your strength is growing! Like I said, today is full body which means you’ll get legs, booty, glutes, hips, core, obliques, arms, shoulders and back. Nothing will be forgotten.

We are using weights as an addition in order to get that tone definition in the muscles as well as to burn that fat. This combined with the resistance of the Reformer is an ultra workout. Stick to these workouts and you will see and feel results! However, if you are new to weight training or Pilates, start with body weight and the machine only, and add the weights once you are confident in the postures and exercises to move with ideal alignment.

This program cannot bulk you, I assure you. Everything we are doing will produce a long, lean silhouette, and adding weights only helps with achieving that. Try something new, and get excited to see change!

Equipment Needed :     

Reformer, 1 heavier set of dumbbells. The Reformer box is also required today but if you don’t have one you will make do without.

Class Level :     

An intermediate level is taught today, but this program is for ALL LEVELS. I will be giving modifications for those exercises which may pose more of a challenge than others. So stick with me, you can do this! Are you Advanced? You’ll love this workout and you can easily make small tweaks to make it even harder! These classes are purposefully adaptable to you at your level!

The Course of this Class :   

Get ready for planks, lunges, hops, swings, stars, unilateral ab exercises, and moving squat raises. Did that entice you?! lol I hope so! This workout is a great mix of creative variations and some “Kristi” classics. Throughout all your workout stay focused on your 1. Breath, 2. Alignment 3. Fluidity and form as you move. Listen to your body. Class pace is totally moderate, slow, controlled and mindful movement.

If ever you have more time and want another full body workout either repeat this one over again, that’s my challenge to you, OR try the Mat one! Yes, do that! Or check here below, I’ve hand selected other options for you on the site. Then, rest up, and be ready for tomorrow! Drop me a comment below of how you found class! 👇🏼

Goals :     

Why is this called “hourglass figure body” workout? Because when we build upper body, core and lower body, that’s what we get! Balanced musculature, healthy spine, coordinated body and mind. Concentrated weight and resistant training for fat loss and defined lean muscle tone. Full body integration, utilization of the whole system. Develop more core strength, and more full body endurance in the muscles. Sculpt and shape. Transform our fitness. Alternate daily workouts for a full body fat loss & strength training program at the end of the week. See and feel real progressions in your body. Achieve your goals whether to lose fat, increase strength, lose weight, or better posture.
