Core Ball and Pilates Studio #empower #fitness

After I weighed myself last week and found out that I gained two heaping pounds, I went back to my regular fitness routine.  I am very sore  right now but the pain paid off as I lost  what I gained for a couple of weeks that I  took a break from  exercising.  I was just not feeling it as I caught a cold and Bloody Mary was also present so I gave my body a break.  Now I am back to business.
I am also inspired to  workout because empower sent me another set of tools to use for my routines.  First is the Core Ball.  Here's the description
Core balls are a fun, safe way to tone your abs, back, butt, and legs, as well as improve your posture! This 55 cm core ball is made of durable burst resistant vinyl. An illustrated workout poster, follow along workout DVD and a high speed, dual action hand pump are included. This ball is designed for women under 5’6” tall. The full work out, Core Ball Body Toning DVD by professional fitness master, Gin Miller, allows you to start a safe and effective workout the minute you receive your Empower Core Ball.
I have been wishing to have a Core Ball at home and finally got one, thanks a lot Empower!  If your height is above 5'6", the 65 mm is what you  need to get.  Both are priced at $29.99.  It includes  everything that you need.  
I am so sore right now for doing the crunches but the pain is  all worth it as I see the result of my  hardwork.  The core ball offers different kinds of exercise routines including crunch, squat and rock, prone walk out, and more.
The second one that Empower sent me is the portable  Pilates studio  that  lets you perform reformer-style Pilates movements without heavy equipment in your home. Lightweight and portable, the bar disassembles for easy storage. Includes follow along workout DVD with bonus upper body strength workout.
Thanks to hubby for taking the photos while I was working out in our living room.  It was very cold down our mini gym at the basement so I have been doing my work out  upstairs.  

I love this  pilates studio as it would really strengthen your  upper body  especially your arms.  There are different  kinds of  fitness routine in using this pilates studio including leg work out.  In minimum time, you can  work on sculpting, toning, and strengthening your total body.  You can sculpt your legs, arms, buns, and thighs while targeting your abs in every move.  This is exactly what I need to help me  shed off my tummy fat.
What I love about Empower's fitness system  is that, in every package , it includes the DVD for you to watch.  It is easier than reading manuals.    Once again,  my BIG thank you to my ever generous sponsor for fitness, the Empower!  Are you ready to join the  fit women at Empower?  I'd like to  share with you the Empower's motto:  Get Inspired.  Get Motivated.  Get Involve.  Make your Move to a Better You.  Make your move to a healthier you!

  16. A core ball would most likely end up being a giant soccer for my two preschoolers. I'd love to try that portable Pilates studio though. I've been wanting to do Pilates to ease my back pains but have never had time to go to the gym.

  18. You go, mama! I have a pink core ball that I bought at Academy last year and I enjoyed using it, but haven't used it as much lately though. I haven't tried this at home pilates though and sure would be nice to try. I am doing the Hoop Cardio Core and More workout from them and I am loving it right now.
