The purpose of this month's core challenge has many benefits: 1.) To sculpt and define your arms hips and waistline: 2.) To activate the muscles that are responsible for stabilizing your shoulders, core and pelvis; 3) Strengthens your core and ankles; 4.) Tones up your arms, chest, back & shoulders.
Ladies, get ready to feel the burn. :)
This exercise is an awesome booty lifter and builder. Try them. You'll love them as much as my students do. :)
To do this exercise:
1.) Lay on your back
2.)Use a mini exercise band (green - medium tension or blue - heavy tension). Place the band lightly above both knees, on the lower thigh.
3.) Bend your knees and place your feet on a wall.
4.) Create a 90 degree angle at your knees and hips by placing your hips directly u dear your knees.
5.) Lift your hips into a bridge.
6.) Lift one foot off of the wall.
7.) Reach your raised leg straight and toward your head and keep stretching the band throughout the entire exercise.
8.) Lower and lift your hips, making sure to keep your bottom squeezed, your belly button drawn in toward your spine and your ribs closed.
9.) I recommend 20 - 50 repetitions per leg. 2-3 sets.

Michele has been my Pilates trainer for over a year now. Since working with her weekly, I have now regained the body I longed for after having three children. I am lean, happy, and feel strong and healthy. Her expertise regarding the body's structures is incredible. With each session I find myself more and more impressed with how easily she can alter the program to accommodate my particular needs of the day, and the results are truly amazing. She can motivate you beyond your own expectations but still never seems too demanding. I actually enjoy working with her immensely. All the compliments I get now are not too bad either! Give it a try with her, you will not be disappointed.
