You're probably familiar with Kayla Itsines's Sweat app and its popular HIIT and strength workouts. Last fall, Sweat unveiled new yoga and barre workouts, perfect for people who want to build strength with low-impact training. Now, the company has launched a new 10-week Pilates program, available starting Feb. 22.
The program offers traditional mat-based Pilates workouts focused on core strength and stability and improving posture and mobility. Pilates is a good low-impact strength workout that's doable for all fitness levels. The workouts require minimal equipment (think: light dumbbells, a jump rope, and resistance bands), and are led by former dancer and current Pilates instructor Sara Colquhoun, who has been teaching Pilates for 17 years.
"It's a dream come true to join the Sweat community and have the opportunity to encourage more women across the world to experience the benefits of Pilates," Colquhoun said, according to a press release. "The program is tailored for all fitness abilities and you won't need much space or equipment to enjoy a great workout. I believe that a flexible fitness approach is the key to a sustainably healthy lifestyle, and I love that Sweat programs offer women the convenience and confidence to customize their training to suit their individual needs."
