  • Fast AF Boi
    Fast AF Boi 3 years ago My very first time working out was with this video back in 2012 at the age of 14. It was hard, so hard I lost 20 pounds in two and a half weeks. I went back to this video again in 2016 at 18 years old and the only thing that still kills me is the leg pyramids. I'm really proud of how far I came.

    nathaliebalesi 1 year ago Hi Im researching as there is 2 schools of thought.I can trace my teachers all the way back to Joseph Pilates and I've always been told do not have a flat back against the floor.Any help ? In Europe it's neutral spine so who's right Joseph Pilates or those who say flat back like back in the 80's ? Merci et bisous

  • Amber
    Amber 2 years ago You can definitely lose weight by following the beginner's calendar, you just have to make sure your diet is in check as well. Along the way, you may find yourself getting stronger and certain moves will get easier, but if you really want to build muscle I'd add some weightlifting to your routine eventually.
