HOGANSBURG – Plyometrics and Pilates are two opposites on the fitness spectrum. But Laura Tarbell’s trademark Plyo-Pilates workout which combines the two extremes scored her a place in Oxygen Magazine’s 2012 Fat Loss Special.

A STOTT-certified Pilates instructor and the owner of Tarbell Pilates in Hogansburg, Tarbell created the unique routine when she wanted a time-saving, fat-busting workout after having twin boys in 2009.

“I needed an interval workout that would elevate my heart rate to burn calories and then work my core at the same time,” she explains. The result is a body with lean muscle tone and a slim mid-section.

After programming the article, Oxygen’s fitness editor offered Laura the job of modeling the workout as well, a unique opportunity given to only a select few.

In the next few months, Oxygen will again be featuring Laura as a model, quoting her as a Pilates expert, and spotlighting her in their BLAB section.

The article is based on one of Laura’s latest DVDs, Plyo-Pilates, released in August 2011 with two other titles: Pilates for Runners and Ultimate Abs and Core.

An official release party for the DVDs is planned for Monday, March 5, at Heart to Heart Fitness Center located at 19 Eagle Drive in Hogansburg. Everyone is welcome to attend and enjoy previews of each video, healthy refreshments, discounts on all Tarbell Pilates products and personal consultations.

Heart to Heart Fitness Center will also be holding a Spring Open House that day for visitors interested in touring their newly renovated basketball court, indoor track, new weight equipment, tanning booths, and learning about one the many evening leagues offered, including basketball, volleyball, dodgeball, wally ball, and racquetball.

Laura will be traveling to various gym locations in the next six months offering free demonstration classes.
