Q. Make a schedule for the next 9 weeks that gets you to the finish line (or close). Map out the hours you need according to what you have accomplished and what you might be missing according to your individual requirements. Share where you are in the discussion board.

get ready to test out - tip
The spirit of Pilates is it’s most profound gift. The feeling that you can do anything is the most important sentiment to deliver to your clients. Focus on what they can do. Bring them to the edge of their potential. Celebrate their triumphs and their sweat. Honor their bodies and this body of work every day.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
