Self proclaimed as 'The Entertainment capital of the world' Las Vegas is probably the least likely place you would expect to find a Pilates studio. But on a recent holiday that is exactly what I did. As a passionate advocate of exercise in all its forms, Pilates being my personal favourite along with dance, I headed to Vegas with a friend to catch a few shows, see the wonders of showbiz city, and indulge in a little retail therapy as the Malls there are really something, even for this well travelled Londoner!
Being an exercise fiend I always like to take a class or two wherever I go so I met up with a fellow graduate of the Basi Academy where I trained in Los Angeles who owns and runs a studio there. It was a mere 30 odd degrees but lucky for me everywhere is air conditioned. Working out with a fellow instructor of a completely different background was really good fun, Matthew holds a black belt in karate. Go Matt!
What can I say I had a great time, learned a thing or two about combining Pilates with Karate- could that be a new style of class I wonder?! Pikarate anyone?!
Here I am with Matt post workout. If you ever go to Vegas look him up and tell him I said hi!
