If you find yourself beachside or poolside this summer and in need of a Pilates fix, it may be time to get creative. Try this fun - don't laugh! - apparatus substitution: turn your ordinary beach cooler into an extraordinary piece of Pilates equipment - the Long Box!
Here are 5 Pilates exercises on the Long Box that you can do on your beach cooler:
1,2. Pulling Straps (Part 1 & 2)
Tip: Use water bottles in each hand to create resistance and feedback.
5. Short Box Series (Just change the position of your cooler!)
Tip: Instead of a baton or dowel, use a shovel, or twist a beach towel, and pull it tight at each end.
When your workout is over, hop off your Long Box, grab a cold beverage, and head to the water knowing you didn't skip a day of your Pilates practice.
