Day 1
2 Lectures 03:35

Welcome to Day 1.

Real transformation doen't happen all at once. It happens gradually in small steps.  This program is specifically designed to deliver single steps towards a full scale bodily transformation.  I strongly encourage you to perform the course as outlined without rushing forward.  Though a single exercise may not seem like much at first, your body is digesting information about movement, strength, and control that are key to your results.  If possible, spend several days repeating just one of the moves or several in a row before moving on.  Should you find yourself hungry for extra movement, you may repeat the day's work for a second set, rather than skipping ahead.  By the end of the course, you will find you are more than ready to move on to the next level class.  Your core will be stable and strong and your stamina will have increased.  Most people give up on their exercise routine because they start out biting off more than they can chew.  This program delvers just what you need to get started - one small bite at a time.

Good Luck and I'll see you on the Mat.

Day 2

Welcome back to Day 2.

I hope that Day 1 both inspired and surprised you.  Most people do not expect squats and Push-Ups to be the first Pilates moves they learn.  But Real Pilates is much more like traditional fitness than you may know.  You'll just be learning to become your own teacher during each and every move by talking to your muscles, coaching yourself through the smaller details and focusing on the principles of the system.  For Day 2 we focus on Concentration and we'll tackle a move called the Hundred.  This move can be modified so you can work at your threshold without getting frustrated.  Continue to practice your Day 1 moves so that you improve each move on each day.

Keep up the good work!

Day 3
2 Lectures 07:08

Today is a pivotal day in your program.  The Roll up is your move and the Pilates principle of Centering is your focus.  Learning how to use all the control you've been building in a movement that requires you to roll up and down through your spine will be a challenge.  But don't worry.  We've got a formula to get you through it.  Be sure to work as hard as you can with each and every move and remember Joe Pilates words - "It's good for the body."

See you back on the Mat.

Day 4
2 Lectures 08:31

You've crossed the halfway point now.  Day 4 promises a whole new look at what your body can do.  One of the earliest legends of strength training tells the story of Milo of Croton of Ancient Greece - who carried a newborn calf on his back every single day until the calf was full grown.  This is the progression of strength training and exactly what you are doing over these seven days. Today's focus is the Pilates principle of Precision and the exercise we'll be tackling is the Single Leg Strength.  You'll need your brain for this one, but your core will thank you later. 

See you on the Mat.

Day 5
2 Lectures 08:38

Hello and welcome to Day 5.

At this point it should be clear that Real Pilates gets harder, not easier.  As you get smarter, you should find yourself coaching and coaxing your muscles through each move with greater detail and pinpoint accuracy.  This is where your transformation really kicks in.  Each key move done to the highest possible level of perfection is not just what Pilates is all about, it's also the fastest way to change your body.  One of Mr. Pilates' favorite quotes was from Schiller who said - "It is the mind which shapes the body."  You are the one that makes this true.  Think your way through every move.  Talk to yourself, teach yourself.  Concentrate fully. Do not allow your mind to wander.

Let the transformation continue!

Great job!  You'be made it to the end.  Or the beginning, depending on how you see it.  This short program can be shorter if you work faster, or longer if you feel like you need to draw it out.  Pilates is a practice that is truly flexible and personal.  Adapt it to your needs and work the exercises to your own personal challenge level.  When you're ready - move on to the full class which is conducted at "real life" tempo and will certainly bring your practice to the next level. 

Be well,

Published authority on fitness and wellness and a pioneer of the Pilates method, Alycea Ungaro brought some of the very first mat Pilates classes to New York City. Both the method and Alycea built a devoted following as people flocked to her classes.

Alycea has expanded her popular Pilates classes into a fitness media empire. Her first multi-media project was the innovative Portable Pilates™, an easy-to-use at-home mat workout. Best selling titles followed including; Pilates: Body in Motion, published in 2002, The Pilates Promise published in 2004, and The Pilates Practice Companion, Alycea’s most comprehensive book yet, released in bookstores in January 2011.

In addition to serving on the advisory board of Fitness Magazine, Alycea also travels widely as a guest teacher hosting retreats at world-famous location such as Amangani in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She has trained scores of celebrities including Madonna, Uma Thurman, Kyra Sedgewick, Claire Danes, and Molly Sims. Together with long-time client Christy Turlington, Alycea collaborated on a “Pilates Booty” for Puma. The booty was aptly named “The Alycea.”

Alycea was early to the digital game by partnering with Mobile Mind, Inc. to launch a cell phone version of PortablePilates™. This go-anywhere mini-workout, was designed to broaden Pilates accessibility. 15 Minute Everyday Pilates has also been converted into a series of Vooks (video books) that are available for iPhones and iPads as well as the Amazon Kindle and the Android platform. The New York Timeshas hailed these Pilates Apps as the best on the market. She also created the “15 Minute Everyday Pilates” DVD and the patent-pending Real Alignment Mat for the home exerciser.

In addition to her Pilates expertise, Ungaro is a licensed physical therapist having graduated from New York University’s prestigious program.  She is also a certified Peri-natal specialist making her uniquely qualified to work with all levels of disability and with clients during any phase of their pregnancy.
