What's Mari's secret? Her revolutionary new technique called Seamless Transitioning. With Seamless Transitioning, you move quickly through a series of Pilates exercises that challenge your muscles and your cardio system, so you burn calories and fat without the impact and pounding of traditional aerobics while getting the body toning benefits of Pilates. Not only do you get the long, lean look you've always dreamed of, but you ramp up your metabolism for a "continuous burn effect" — you'll burn fat 24/7, even while you sleep!
When you use Pilates to strengthen and tone the core, you not only create a firm foundation for every type of movement, but you also narrow the waistline, flatten the stomach and firm and lift the rear. That's why women have always loved Pilates—it gives us exactly the look we want without adding bulk—leaving us feeling taller, slimmer and sculpted.
With Mari Winsor Slimming Pilates, Mari Winsor has created the ideal workout, combining fat-burning cardio, core conditioning and sleek muscle toning for life-changing, body-shaping results!
The Pilates method was invented in the early part of the 20th century by German athlete Joseph Pilates, who designed a series of mat exercises to help balance the body, improve motion, strengthen, and promote mental and physical harmony. He originally named his technique the art of controlology, control being one of the most important aspects of Pilates. The exercises Pilates developed require intense concentration and centered on a strong abdomen, deep stretching, and focused breathing.
For many years, the method was the premiere exercise technique of the dance world. Notables such as George Balanchine, Martha Graham and Suzanne Farrell frequented the original New York Studio set up by Pilates.
Today Pilates is practiced worldwide and is even more popular than ever.
