Wanna Look Like A Victoria’s Secret Angel?

One of my really close friends Khansa recently shared her Pilates routine on Snapchat and that made me a little curious to find out more about this interesting workout concept. On reading up I discovered some really amazing benefits of Pilates and wanted a Pilates Pro to speak to you all about it. Khansa like always, has been really sweet to me and agreed to be my guest blogger and share her tips with you.

Khansa has been a Pilates Girl at The Designed Body- Plano, Texas for almost 6 months now. She has been trained by the talented Nimisha Calien Kalyan and has been doing Stott Pilates regularly. She also attended Pilates classes in NYC at the New York Pilates and plans to continue doing it because her aim is not to lose weight but to maintain a healthy body and that is exactly what Pilates does.

Khansa says, ” I absolutely love Pilates! It’s my happy hour.”

Enter Khansa.


A Brief Introduction To Pilates

“In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 you’ll see the difference, and in 30 you’ll have a new body” – Joseph Pilates

That’s quite an offer, isn’t it?

But first, allow me to let you in on a secret before you consider this as the hottest ‘Deal of the Year!’ it’s not as simple as just learning the exercises, doing them and shutting up shop.  The real results come from committing to properly learn how to engage your Core and understanding what the ‘Core muscles’ really are, because one thing Pilates is known for, it’s the way it develops a strong core. Also, do not let this intimidate you, Pilates is for anyone of any level.

I’m sure you’re imagining a pricey studio, fancy equipment and a personal trainer. Time for another secret, all you need is a mat, unless you want to workout on a reformer.

What else is needed?

  • A Core. Pshh everyone has one.
  • Mind-Body awareness.
  • Urge to submerge into this amazing fitness system.
  • Discipline.
  • Patience, patience and loads of patience!

Why is Pilates better?

  • Ah-mazing Abs!
  • Bye bye back pain!
  • It’s easy on your joints!
  • It’s a real life concentration supplement!

Any risks?

  • Yes, too much Pilates can make you hot.

If I was even an inch close to motivating you to try my favourite workout, try joining a Pilates class near you or just grab a mat and follow the Instructor on any of the Pilates channels on YouTube. After all, good things come to those who sweat!

There are many of us who only make New Year resolutions but never stick to it. Let’s give Pilates a try and say Hello to a hot and fitter body just like a VS Angel flaunts and makes us jealous.

Thank you so much Khansa for imparting this valuable information to us and inspiring the lazy ones to consider fitness as top priority.

Forever and ever,

Samreen Ahmed
