I have to admit I initially wasn’t interested in taking a pilates class.  I was initially reluctant to try out a class but since all my coworkers and friends were gushing to me about how amazing pilates is for your body and the difference they felt I decided I needed to be openminded and give it a try.  OMG! Talk about a hard-core workout!  Don’t let those pretty toes socks and cute outfits fool you.  This workout is killer on your abs, inner and outer thighs and arms.  Coreology pilates works out muscles in your body that I didn’t even know existed, and I have to admit I’ve been craving for more since my first class.  They sell these cute water bottles that I am in love with because their quote is what this studio is all about.


[Two days later, repeat I did with my new water bottle in hand]

Today I initally was planning to ride my bike with my boyfriend to train for the Solvang 1/2 century ride, but then the Marina fog scared me off and it was important that we finish our ride by 11 today due to prior engagements.  Since it is Valentines Day, I tried my best to convince him to join me on a Pilates date, but he wanted to lift weights at the gym so I told him I was going to find a Galentine at the studio.  Thank you Kimberly for being a good sport and taking a photo with me.  I’m still not comfortable taking solo pictures by myself and I appreciate you being my Galentine.

Bonus: Formula Juice is located in the back of the studio and provide fresh cold pressed juices using high quality ingredients.  Price ranges to $5-8 dollars per bottle.  Refreshing treat after a killer workout.
