This Mat Pilates Routine Will Tighten Your Body From Head to Toe

Pilates is no joke when it comes to working every muscle group, big and small. Ask our cover girl Kate Hudson and plenty of crazy-fit devotees—it takes major flexibilty and strength, not to mention it does wonders for your waistline. It all starts with the core; every exercise requires inner stability. The best part about mat Pilates is that it needs no equipment. You can do it anywhere as long as you have a flat surface and some space to work. (See: The Pumped-Up Pilates Workout for a Sleek and Strong Body.)

Join Amy Perera in this Grokker Premium video to get a full-body workout, plus stretching to lengthen those muscles. Her 50-minute routine includes classic roll ups, hundreds, rolling like a ball, and plenty of butt- and hamstring-focused moves that will tighten your glutes and tone your thighs. Make it through the planks, butterfly stretches, and hip flexor work and you'll feel like a whole new person. Grab a mat and get going!
