WHAT IS PYM?
Sign up for $32/month and you get online access to a brand new workout every three days for the life of your subscription. All workouts are stored in your profile, so over time you build a library of every workout since you started subscribing, and you can go back and repeat your favorite workouts as many times as you like. You can workout as many days as you like, but I believe everybody needs at least two full days of rest in a week.
You only need a mat to do the workouts. However, there are props I like to use. If you have them, great, if not, I will talk you through the exercises without them. You do not have to buy a thing.
You can jump into the flow of workouts anytime. Just like you would if you came to a class I was teaching. I teach to all levels at all times. Pimp Your Mat is fun, efficient, educated workouts on the mat. No snotty pilates, just movement that makes your body better. My workouts are based on core strength and equal length and equal strength in all of your muscles.
Pimp Your Mat workouts will create a look like someone shrink-wrapped your body tight, lean and more efficient. The workouts are challenging but approachable. I take a simple mat and gussy it up with variations, props and cueing that finally make pilates make sense and give you the strength and length your body was meant to have.
"Simply put, Tandy Gutierrez is a visionary trainer. She combines acute intelligence and exceptional
creativity to create exercise programs that shape, change and even heal the human body, when necessary.
Clear, specific cueing and a warm and funny coach, Tandy is one of the fitness industry's very (very) best."
– Keith Irace, Regional Group Fitness Manager (California), Equinox Fitness
WHO IS TANDY?
||TANDY GUTIERREZ is quickly gaining recognition as one of the nation’s foremost pilates experts with workouts featured in SEVENTEEN, SELF, and ELLE Magazine and celebrity clients such as Sendhil Ramamurthy of USA Network’s Covert Affairs and NBC’s Heroes, Lucy Hale from ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars and Emmanuelle Chriqui from HBO’s Entourage. Tandy’s client list also includes professional athletes in the NFL, MLB, and the Iron Man Competition.
Tandy has appeared in workouts for ExerciseTV, on-demand via cable providers nation-wide and online. In addition to her Pilates mat and apparatus education, she has a background as an NSCA Certified Personal Trainer, specialty certifications in Budokon, Yoga Tune Up and Gravity Group. Basically, if it’s movement, she’s tried it. She loves to pull exercises from anywhere and everywhere in order to make a workout interesting and valid. She started practicing Pilates at the age of eighteen while getting her BFA in Theatre and Dance from Stephens College. She continues to verify that if you do Pilates, you can approach ANY other sports or fitness format and that the same is not true in reverse.
Her experience as a Lululemon Ambassador allowed her to share her work with the Los Angeles community through master classes, store events and appearances. Her tenure as the Regional Pilates Manager for EQUINOX in Southern California allowed her to shape programming for the country’s hottest fitness clubs and share her flavor of Pilates with hundreds of members and fellow instructors.
Tandy happily made the transition to stay-at-home momma balancing her own workouts, work and two young sons with her role as wife and step-mom to a third son.
