Pilates is Jennylyn's go-to workout!

Kapuso actress Jennylyn Mercado is a big fan of Pilates. And despite her crazy schedule, she made it to a point to squeeze in a little time to do and enjoy Pilates at the luxury of her own home. 

As seen on her usual workout IG posts, Jennylyn bought a Pilates reformer machine to save her from all the hassle of going to Pilates studio and paying for its expensive classes in order to do her regular workout.   

In one of her interviews with GMA, she said, "Na-purchase ko siya (refromer machine) kasi ang mahal ng Pilates ngayon, P2000 per hour. Kung gagawin mo 'yon for the whole year, magkano 'yon 'di ba, might as well bili ka na lang ng sa 'yo tapos manonood na lang sa screen, sa Youtube na lang,"

In that same interview, the 32-year-old artist explained why she fell in love with Pilates the most compared to all the kind of workouts she has tried before. 

"Do'n ako komportable, never ako nagkaroon ng injury like sa triathlon, grabe injury ko sa tuhod, pero 'yon ang para sa 'kin pinaka safe na gawin kasi kahit siguro, matatanda, buntis, pwedeng gawin 'yon.” she stressed. 

She added, "Mahirap siya pero safe s'ya hindi katulad 'pag nasa gym ka, pwede ka magka-injury."

Aside from its safety, Jen continues to share the benefits of Pilates and what it does to her body and well-being on her IG account. 

“Pilates Motivates, Moves, Heals…”
