healthy lifestyle 1 min read

For every workout that you participate in, how you recover from the workout is just as important as the workout that you’re doing. And when it comes to Pilates, you can really optimize your workout by recovering via not only stretching, but also eating. Or in this case, drinking. Smoothies, when done right, are the ideal way to recover from your Pilates workout. Here are our favorite smoothies to drink post-Pilates.
