Summertime in the Valley!

Summertime is here in the Valley! For some of us, that may mean an exciting vacation, or a break from the school schedule or a chance to shake up the routine. As we move exercise indoors - or at least earlier to avoid the heat - here are some tips to maximize your potential and keep yourself on track:

  • Make a plan and stick to it. Whether you’re at home or on a wonderful trip, make a plan to incorporate fitness into your day. You can easily take your MELT Hand and Foot Treatment with you anywhere or one of our creative instructors can hep you come up with a homework plan to fit your adventures. Sticking with your routing is much easier than it seems with a little bit of added guidance from the Delta Pilates staff!
  • Explore fitness classes. If it’s too hot for your favorite hike, check out an indoor spin class or a yoga seminar you’ve had on your radar. Mixing up your fitness routine is a great way for your body to keep guessing, learn new things and find a new passion!
  • Maintain your Pilates schedule. As we routinely discuss, Pilates is like a primer for your body. If you want to get out and wake board on vacation but your joints are inflamed or your low back is bothering you, you may cause more harm than good. At Delta Pilates, you’ll be working with a dedicated Pilates pro who will help guide your routine inside and outside of the studio to maximize your life. We can create custom plans to help you get in shape and stay out of pain no matter what your summer plans bring you.

The holiday season is here again! Now what?

Let's be honest, we have all had quite a ride over the past two years. It seems like we have had two steps forward and one step back (or more) while we try our best to navigate the world. I know many of us feel like we just get our routines back to normal only to have them shaken up again.

At Delta Pilates, our primary goal is to help you establish, maintain, and build upon the routines that are vital for your health. Our skilled team can help advise on it all because we've seen it all. One of the areas that we are often asked about is how to best maintain a routine during busy holiday seasons so here are a few pieces of advice:

  1. Establish a routine and stick to your fitness appointments the same way you would with anything else on the calendar.
  2. Carve out a reasonable amount of time and hyper-specific goals. Think of this process as making baby steps towards progress. While it may not reasonable to commit to an hour on the treadmill every day, for example, it may be perfectly doable to take 2 brisk 15 minute walks around the neighborhood before and after work.
  3. Enlist the help of a professional! We can use our best practices to help you work to establish, maintain and build upon a successful routine to optimize your health and wellness. We use tried and true accountability partnered with innovative program design to help you stay on track even as your calendar fills up.
