Pilates can help you with your Winter Sports! Core strength, and high levels of muscle endurance are required to perform winter sports well. Our Pilates classes in London E8 and London WC2 help with overall endurance, strength and conditioning to build strong muscles, whilst also focusing on balance through development of the Powerhouse – aka “core” which creates the foundation required to enable the body to excel at winter sports.

Pilates creates endurance and strength in the specific muscles needed for winter sports, and unlike gym weight training, Pilates exercises also focus on the alignment of the hips, knees and ankles and core strength required to keep balanced and create flow in your winter sporting activities. Many positions in Pilates concentrate on maintaining positions which mirror those undertaken in winter sports, and which build upper leg and core stamina. For example, you need to keep your position with bent knees when you ski and skate – and this is a move replicated in our reformer Pilates classes. Squats are another move which all skiers and skaters know well, and which can be tough to maintain for hours on the slopes and rinks. Here at Tempo Pilates, our students will know that we often incorporate exercises on the Pilates reformer which require our students to build strength in squat positions. In essence, in our reformer Pilates classes, we target the muscle groups required to maintain a steady, balanced and strong body capable of taking part in winter activities all day long. You can try our Pilates classes, and see for yourself the benefit we can give to you in your training towards your winter holiday at our London E8 or London WC2 studios.

Kari’s Tempo Pilates Winter Tip: Winter sports require the participant to have good, stable balance. This is usually because these types of activities are performed on slippery surfaces (skating rinks, ski slopes, etc.). Many of our exercises at Tempo Pilates can help you to achieve a strong, stable core…which will help with improved posture & balance. One of my favourite exercises is a standing reverse lunge, including a torso twist (holding the ring). These types of exercises challenge our stability while strengthening our abdominal muscles.

Take the Tempo Pilates Challenge in January… For Free!
Is one of your New Year resolutions going to be to Get Fit? Here is a chance to take control of your fitness in 2013 for FREE! What better incentive to get a stronger, more flexible and toned body in the New Year do you need?
Joseph Pilates said:
“In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you’ll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you’ll have a different body”

Take the Tempo Pilates New Year, New You Challenge!!
We believe in the words of Joseph Pilates, and want to show you that it is possible to start feeling the difference in just a few reformer Pilates classes with us. As an extra benefit, we will be including nutritional advice from fully qualified nutritionist, Jane Grogan.
We are looking for a dedicated, witty and articulate volunteer, to follow a nutritionist’s diet & participate in 10 Tempo Pilates over 3 consecutive weeks (or one may be taken in a fourth week) at our London E8 studio, in Hackney, whilst blogging about the experience.
What’s Involved?
You must be prepared to write a total of 5 short blogs, an initial blog to introduce you, and your fitness goals and then one blog a week for 3 weeks, plus a “end of Challenge blog”. Each blog should be a minimum of 300 words.
The blog should include how you found each session at London E8, how you feel you have progressed in our reformer Pilates classes and how you feel in yourself and your body. We will be measuring your success as well, to help you see how you have progressed!
The Nitty Gritty…
In order to ensure that you are committed to our New Year, New Challenge, New You challenge, you must be prepared to purchase 10 classes for £150 by 23rd of December, to be valid for 4 weeks, at 3 per week, with the final class to be taken in 4th consecutive week, or to have 10 of your current package moved to a fixed use period on the same basis. We will refund the cost of your classes in full, or return the classes to your package for re-booking following the completion of 3 reformer classes a week for 3 consecutive weeks, plus one in the 4th consecutive week in January 2013 with submission of all 5 blogs as specified. Failure to do so will mean you will not be refunded for your package, you will lose any classes not taken and/or if you reallocated classes to the competition they will not be returned. This is designed to help you stick to the challenge – not that we think you will really need it ☺
What are you waiting for? – Enter here

Entries close on Thu 20th of December 2012.
The winner will be contacted on Fri 21st of December 2012

Rihanna – “Diamonds”

Whipping them out, RiRi’s album ‘Unapologetic ‘ which has just debuted at number 1 in America see us work out on the Pilates Reformer with stomping 80’s backbeats from 1st single Diamonds (co written by Sia) this month. Meanwhile….in case you missed it….Chris Brown is back.


Phantogram – ‘Dont Move 

We lOVE Phantogram at Tempo Pilates! They record their ‘Street beat, psych pop’ in a barn at the back of vocalist/guitarist’s Josh Carter’s parents house.
The band was supposed to be playing Hoxton, London on 19th of Nov but a broken arm led to its cancellation.
Keep an eye on their website for further announcements. In the meantime, check out their recent collaboration with rapper Big Boi on Soundcloud!


Woodkid – “Run Boy Run”

Perfect for dramatic Tempo Pilates Reformer class!
Being a famous music video director (Katy Perry, Mystery Jets, Rihanna) & talented musician all at the same time is pretty much a deal clincher wouldn’t you say! Going by the looks of his blockbuster, slow mo skills in this video, I am highly anticipating his stage set for performance. You can buy tickets at the Roundhouse for May 13th 2013We’ve chosen it for 100’s cause that’s how we roll!

Join us for a fun class to great tunes at either our London E8 or WC2 studio.
