Pilates stems from the core, but this ab workout takes things up a notch

Pilates is an amazing workout all around-especially for your core-and this class turns up the ab focus tenfold. Tone your entire midsection through a series of classic moves that will have your muscles shaking in the best way possible. (Looking for more ways to turn up the burn? Try a pilates barre workout or a fat-blasting HIIT workout.)

Trainer Amy Perrera believes Pilates provides a strong foundation for both strength and overall well-being. Having suffered an injury from a rock climbing accident twenty years ago, her workouts are geared toward strengthening and repairing the body from head to toe. So get a good stretch in and try out her rountine below.

Workout details: You will need a yoga block for this class. If you don't have a block, use a book or towel. Each of the moves (flutter kicks, leg lifts, bridges, and pass-betweens) are performed from 30 seconds to one minute. Remember to keep pulling your belly button towards your spine on each move to maximize the ab activation.
