Our first guest blogpost – my sister decided to purchase the Ten Pilates Blitz Block package before leaving for her honeymoon in sunny California. We asked her to keep a diary of her experience over the seven days.
With 7 days to go until my honeymoon, I decided I needed a last ditch attempt to boost my not-so-bikini-body with a TenPilates Pre-Holiday Blitz Block: 5 classes in 7 days.
Day 1: 5 days of gluttony, binge drinking and not working out has seriously taken a toll on my body. And to couple with that Luke conducted a butt busting session - needless to say "Ouch" was repeated many a time through The Clam... and still being repeated as I hobble through day… oooh the burn...
Day 2: Class number 2. Finally got a booking at Chiltern Firehouse for lunch so definitely had to squeeze in a workout before more gluttonous indulgence. Unfortunately, the only beginners class available on the day was 8am…on the plus side I didn’t have to pay for parking.
Day 3: Much needed rest day. Two consecutive days of leg raises and squats were enough to cripple my walking abilities.
Day 4: Back to the burn. I’m definitely getting stronger. I pushed myself to go for the challenging options. Today we focused more on the arm and back muscles. I even graduated to using the 2kg weights. The confidence may have gone to my head – I just purchased two crop tops from Asos…
Day 5: Hungover. Definitely no workout for me today. Wine, followed by vodka, followed by some questionable shots has sent me into a black hole. I’m not moving from my bed. Thank god for Netflix.
Day 6: Slight cop-out…I ‘gifted’ a class to husband – handsome, tall and willing to take Pilates with me? He’s definitely a keeper. At least this time I had some eye-candy to keep me motivated in class.
Day 7: Bye bye London, hello LA! Land of the beautiful people. Let’s hope my newly acquired abs help me blend in a teensy bit more…
The Ten Pilates Blitz Block costs £65 and is available for purchase until 31st July. Classes can be taken at any studio. A single class usually costs £28 so it's definitely good value for money. We recommend calling about the offer as we couldn't find details on the website (we heard about it through their mailing list).
Keep at it,
