Fitness Pilates Newsletter 14th September 2020


Good Morning,


I hope you are having a lovely weekend and getting prepped for a fantastic week ahead.


Do you use Yoga blocks in your FP classes? 


If you are teaching virtually or F2F adding the blocks can provide a  wonderful balance challenge, focus and a deeper range for many exercises. I’ve added the FP Activation band for stability and muscular activation on these little clips for inspiration.


1:Hip Abductions

2:Wobbly 1 leg balance

3:Deep range squat

4:Elevated hip bridge

5:Deep range press ups

6:Balance challenge v sit.




Activation Bands


I have restocked with the Fitness Pilates Activation Band and have all 3 sizes message me for bulk order discounts Rachel@RachelHolmes.com
