We're all for a good Pilates class since it's low-impact and can still strengthen and tone your core, but it turns out you don't even need to go to class as long as you have at least one empty wall in your home!
"Wall Pilates" has quickly grown popular in 2023 as people are skipping actual classes and getting their workout in at home.
The workout trend has the same toning benefits as going to a regular Pilates class, but you get to save money and work out whenever you have free time instead of at a certain time of the day.
Essentially you do the traditional Pilates exercises using the wall to mimic the foot bar used in reformer Pilates classes. Pressing your feet against the wall adds resistance to the moves, which helps build strength.
Also, unlike traditional Pilates, your feet are typically elevated throughout most of the workout, so you may experience increased circulation, improved digestion and sleep and reduced muscle cramps which we're all for.
You can see some versions of "Wall Pilates" below, but you better believe we're trying this at home this weekend multiple times before posting it on TikTok!
