Sitting for 12 hours a day then doing a 20 minute run just isn’t enough to achieve a healthy functional body until old age! As much as I love that Pilates will get you a lean toned physique and perky bum, it’s also the most functional form of exercise. Functional exercise means training the body for exercises performed in every day life. Now what do most of us do all day in every day life? Sit at a desk, drive, get stressed, run, stand squished on a tube? We don’t tend to love our bodies or take care of them.
