The Ab Workout You'll Stick With This Year

It’s a new year, and it’s time to reconnect to your strong center. Pilates is a great way to strengthen your core. Below, Josselyn Levinson-Dustin, a Pilates instructor at The Swan, takes you through five great exercises that challenge your abdominals in flexion, side-bending, rotation, and stability. Working in all planes of movement helps to balance your strength and provides even tone. Pilates is effective due to the focus on the quality of your movement. Take your time, find stellar form, and feel your strength!
