Welcome Jessica Shinn!
BTP on Gilt City!
Did you know that Pioneer Square has multiple garages that offer parking spaces that are either comparable to or more affordable than street parking rates? The 1st ave and Columbia garage and the Butler garage (at 2nd and James) both offer parking for $3/hr and are 1-2 blocks from the studio! Sometimes you can pull right up to a parking spot across the street from the studio, but if not, hop over to one these garages so you can spend less time parking and more times pilatesing! The City of Seattle produced a useful website showing the rates, locations, and real-time capacity of these garages – nifty!
The cold and flu season is upon us! If you have a cold or the flu, please be considerate of your work out buddies and instructors and stay home from Pilates. Workout environments are especially conducive to spreading germs, and while we are very careful about disinfecting equipment between sessions, we need your help to keep our community healthy and happy.
Private clients, if you feel like you are fighting off a cold or the flu, cancel with at least 24-hours notice to avoid being charged.
Duet, trio, and mat clients, you can always sign up for a make-up class if you are sick or fighting a bug off! Plus you’ll benefit from and enjoy your workout more when you are closer to 100%. 😉
Whether you have fallen behind on initiating your new years fitness goals or your life-long fitness goals, it’s never too late to get started. An article published in the New York Times highlights key characteristics possessed by those who age well, and specifically examines recent studies that investigate the positive impacts of fitness on those who begin exercising later in life. “Those results reaffirm both other science and common sense. A noteworthy 2009 study of more than 2,000 middle-aged men, for instance, found that those who started to exercise after the age of 50 were far less likely to die during the next 35 years than those who were and remained sedentary.”
The Washington Post produced a neat and informative article on the health risks associated with sitting too much. Unfortunately, due to long work and commute hours, most of us spend much too much time sitting in front of our computers or behind the wheel. Take a look at the article and don’t forget to click the link that suggests easy exercises that you can do at work to efficiently inject some movement into your day and combat the health risks associated with our sedentary society.
Oh and by the way, Bodytonic offers two lunch time mat classes per week! Come join us for and even more fun and interesting way to inject movement into your workday.Tuesdays – 11:30 Fridays – 12pm
At Bodytonic we feel we are off to a great start recovering from holiday overindulgence and beginning 2014 with a commitment to self-care. Self-care can manifest in many different ways; for BTP owner, Nadia Rodriguez, her self-care manifests by attentively balancing work, school, family/friend social time, while eating healthy lunches like smoothies or salads, and of course combining regular strength and cardiovascular training. Nadia of course fulfills her strength training via Pilates at the studio, but some of you may be interested to know that she has also become quiet fond of zumba and kickboxing which she utilizes to fulfill her cardiovascular training. Nadia’s standards are quiet high with regard to fitness instruction and given this, we’d like to share her picks for the best zumba and kickboxing instructors in the city! These women teach challenging and intelligently designed classes and if you are looking to integrate more cardiovascular training we highly recommend them!

Gretchen Reynolds discusses the importance of understanding the correlation between sleep and exercise. This article is based off of Dr. Phyllis Zee’s expertise as a scholar in neurology and sleep disorders. We are all familiar with the importance of sleep and exercise, interestingly though a person must equally prioritize each one in order to reach his or her health goals. Dr. Zee describes this connection as a “bidirectional relationship”. Next time you feel sluggish before arriving to class, ask yourself “Did I get at least seven hours of sleep?” : )
