Hit Play on These 8 At-Home Pilates Workouts to Tone Your Body and Loosen Every Tight Muscle

Pilates is one of those workouts that leaves your body feeling better than when you started. Don't misread that; Pilates definitely isn't easy. But it is low-impact and easy on your joints, so your body doesn't feel the pain and strain of jumping and running workouts. At the same time, the challenging poses and transitions will tone your muscles and improve your flexibility.

There's no substitute for working out in-person with a Pilates instructor who can correct your form and help you maximize each exercise. But if you're short on cash for expensive classes or just want to work out in the comfort of your own living room (I can relate), let me direct your attention to the following eight YouTube Pilates workouts. Created by certified instructors, each of these videos lasts 30 minutes or less, which is just enough time to stretch out your tight areas and get a burn going in all of your muscles. Pull on your stretchiest leggings, grab a mat, and hit play on whichever quick, effective Pilates workout you're in the mood for today.
