Buns of steel? More like buns of steel-cut oatmeal.
If “mushy” and “lumpy” are the adjectives that best describe your backside, give Paul Abbott at Foundation Pilates a call.
An initial ten-minute consultation at his Santa Monica studio determines your health and fitness needs. Then the so-called “derriere doctor” gets to work (and so do you) with a regimen that isolates each individual muscle in your glutes, hip flexors and extensors, and hamstrings, engaging them from every conceivable angle.
Lateral leg lifts, glute presses, and standing leg extensions are all on the agenda. So too is advice on nutrition and at-home exercise routines (Abbott’s been in the Pilates business for fourteen years, so don’t get cheeky.)
Depending on the length of your sessions (30 to 90 minutes), you’ll see results in as little as a month.
Which is why this exercise regime is one we can really get behind.
Foundation Pilates, 1131 Montana Avenue, between 11th and 12th Streets, Santa Monica (310-260-1177), $65 per 30-minute session.
