“Frozen” Flutters Video (Core Focused Pilates Routine) & Bday Giveaway!

Print Friendly

*** Giveaway Closed!***

Hey all! It’s my birthday today and I’ve made it tradition over the past couple years to gift YOU with a present with either a workout, giveaway, or both! (Here is year 1 birthday post and year 2 birthday post)

I had a total other routine in mind, but Friday as I was playing with my 4 1/2 year old daughter, jamming to the “Frozen” soundtrack, (Because, come on, who ISN’T jamming to that thing?!) I started piecing together a pilates routine to the song “Let it Go”. (I know, the perils of being a fitness instructor. Just can’t stop working out!)

Frozens Flutters: A core focused pilates video routine to Frozen's "Let it go" (Quick reference guide included) : peak313.com

I’ve been teaching pilates for almost 10 years and it has been pivotal to both my function and look with my health. This sequence is one that is foundational to my basic pilates routine and I think you’ll enjoy it. Of course, you may add it alongside some other core training, or just do it if you only have 4 minutes. I would shoot for doing this 2-3 times a week. The good thing about this is that your daughter (or son!) can join you if they have interest when the song pops on! Nothing harmful about it at all. (Also, you can do most of this with the exception of when we go to our belly if you are prego! I did these exercises all the way up til I was 8 months with my daughter!) And if you are sick of the song, I totally understand! Just mute, or take the quick reference guide beside you and proceed!

♥♥♥

Now onto the more fun stuff! I’ve also got a giveaway for you! My friends over at Cross Training Couture (founded by my friend, Michelle Myers!) are giving away one of their tanks to one of my readers! (You may remember them from my post last week here.) And I’m also going to giveaway a 30 minute Skype session with me!  I’ve had quite a few people asking me to do this with them (and unfortunately, time doesn’t permit me to do this regularly) so I thought you may enjoy this! I get so many emails from you all and many times, you just need a 30 minute conversation with me to sort through your questions, so I’d like to offer this to help you out!

Clare's Birthday Giveaway: Share, pin, post, or tweet to be entered! (Check out the new pilates video, too!) : peak313.com

To enter:

- Share this post via Facebook, twitter,  instagram, or pin to pinterest!

- Leave a comment that you did so, and also, what you’d like to ask me if you won the Skype session

I will pick one winner randomly on Saturday, March 22.

♥♥♥

Now–off to the workout! The first video is the video in full with NO talking. However, I’d like you to check out the second video where I am explaining a few important things, namely how to MODIFY each exercise.  Keep in mind–CONTROL, tight tummy and remember to breathe! Slow down if you need to at any time! Watch the video one time through before doing so you have a good idea of what’s going on!

Now for the modification/explanation video

(Click here if you can’t see the video)

Finally, a quick reference guide for those of you who would prefer to save it to your camera roll or print it off and take with you!

  2. Excited to try this routine tonight after work! Also, I love Michelle’s tanks! Just got my first one a few weeks ago!

  3. Kimberly Taylor says:

    I shared on FB! Like the song and want to try the workout!!

  4. Jessica Reno says:

    I would ask what are some of your favorite exercises when you are feeling too tired to work out…what lifts you up?

  5. Katrina S says:

    Happy Birthday! I love your blog and have been waiting one of tanks for so long! Shared on facebook. Thank you!

  6. Love it!! just shared :-)

  7. I shared your post in Facebook. I would love to talk to you about how to balance taking care of myself with taking care of my family. I want to honor God but I get to feeling guilty sometimes when I take time away from the family to exercise! Happy Birthday! My birthday is in April and I’ll be hitting the BIG 50!

  8. Julie Maddox says:

    I just wanted to say Happy Birthday. And thank you for keeping the videos and inspiration coming. Feel like I should be giving you something.

  9. ChatHappy Birthday! Shared On FB. Would Love To Chat About Being A Faith And Fitness Motivator To Others.

  10. Pinned to Pinterest. I’d like to know your strategies when going through periods of extreme tiredness. Was working out consistently and hit about 3 weeks of exhaustion and have really slacked off.

  11. Happy Birthday!!! I’ve shared this post on fb.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win a tank & a conversation with you! I’ve admired her tanks for quite some time…I have it planned as my first reward when I hit my first goal weight or hit my goal time in a 5k.
    If I win, I’d want to chat with you about what to workout and when…do I hit just arms one day? Just legs another? Do you do cardio first? In the middle of your workout? Or an entire different day? Also, how do you fit it all in? I know so many ask that…I have 3 things I’d like to fit in before the children wake up…1. Bible reading 2. workout 3. shower. :)

  12. Hey birthday girl =) happy, happy day to you! Follow your blog and FB page; you are a blessing to so many and I am grateful for your gifts. I would LOVE to pick your brain on nutrition and goal-setting. Peace to you! pax, amanda

  13. Helena Schaden says:

  20. Yay!!! I shared :) I would ask you about your weekly meal & snack schedule. And your weekly workout routine :). Thanks!!!

  21. NeeNah B says:

    Happy Birthday! I pinned to Pinterest. I guess my question would be….How do you stay motivated, especially when you’re exhausted?

  22. michelle says:

    I shared! I’d ask how do you avoid extremes in health? Either too obsessive or too relaxed. Can’t find happy medium.

  23. Sharing! I’m so glad I came across your Facebook page last week! It was a total God thing! I would ask you how you keep your fitness in check from becoming an idol. Make sense? Excited to try the video with my 8 yr & 18 yr old! Thanks again!

  24. Sheila Allison says:

    You are such an inspiration to me, and so thankful I stumbled upon your page a few months back. My questions would be around staying balanced on the health journey I have been on. As a single mom balancing faith, parenting and health, alone has been a challenge.

  25. Melissa B says:

    Happy Birthday. Shared on Facebook. I would spend the time on where to start with an exercise program after not exercising for 16 years.

  26. Happy Birthday!! I shared on Facebook! I would talk to you about training for RAGBRAI! 123 Days and counting! I am very excited to do my first RAGBRAI ride!!

  28. Shared on twitter! Not sure if I can narrow down what I would ask you…would just love to chat with you!

  29. Emily Milligan says:

    Shared on FB

  30. I shared on my Facebook page. I would love another tank from cross training couture, but even more would love to chat with you about merging fitness and faith well. I launched a wellness ministry and would love to learn from you, someone who does such an amazing job at speaking straight to readers right where they are at. Happy birthday!!! I’m so grateful for your heart and your ministry!

  31. Stephanie Wilcher says:

    I posted this to Pinterest and can’t wait to try it. Happy Birthday! Tomorrow is our youngest’s 7th birthday, so I am icing a cake tonight. I would love to chat about clean eating and converting littles to clean eating. Thanks:)

  32. Happy Birthday Clare!! I shared this post on FB. The video was so neat! I’m going to definitely try it. If I get to talk to you, I would like to know how to get started and to actually stick with it. Have a great night!

  33. Happy Birthday! I pinned the workout on Pintrest. I would love to talk to you about about motivation, food & diet.

  34. I think I shared on Instagram :-) I would ask about getting rid of my belly. It seems like no matter what I do I can’t get rid of it, grrrrr.

  35. Happy Birthday. I gladly shared this on FB. I would love to discuss a routine that would help me lose my weight & not flare up my fibro. I am at a lose on this. Also, ur opinion on wsl for I am scheduled for it.

  36. Happy Birthday!! What a fun giveaway :) I pinned to Pinterest. My username is living31. I’d love to ask you about balancing it all (fitness, faith, motherhood). I often get so focused on one thing and neglect the others. I’d just love to dish about that! Have a fabulous birthday and thanks for the giveaway!!

  37. I’ve shared the link for the ‘Frozen’ video. You’re such an inspiration; thank you for all you do to serve those you don’t even know! Blessings!

  38. Happy Birthday! Facebook, Pinterest and I plan to instagram later. I want to talk about healthy eating, and to talk about fitting it in. <3

  39. Pinned it! I would ask you how you balance cardio with strength training. Have a wonderful birthday. Thank you for all you do!

  40. Taylor D. says:

    Happy Birthday! I shared on Facebook. I love your blog and would like to ask you how you stay motivated and your favorite workouts!

  41. Andrea P. says:

    I would ask about the best work out that is easier on knee joints. I am pinning this!

  42. Sarah Wiley says:

    Shared this on Facebook and left a comment here before thinking about and realizing I was really probably supposed to leave it here. Anyhow I shared and if I won I’d love to get your input on toning up some extra skin I have after being overweight all my life and finally losing the lbs in this last year.

  43. Shared on Twitter! There are so many things I’d love to chat about more :) Hope you’ve had a GREAT birthday!

  44. Shared on Facebook! I would love to chat about starting a workout plan for weight training!

  45. Oh Clare, what a wonderful idea! It nearly made me cry just to think of it. I just joined the gym but I have no idea where to start. I have so many questions but I am a bit overwhelmed and just not brave enough to ask the folks there for suggestions. I keep my three year old with me when we go but there is a family fitness room where she can keep busy while I use the treadmill, weights, etc. If we were to have a Skype session, I think I would just pick your brain and pray with you. <3 Thank you ever so much for your ministry!
    And maybe, since you can't do this individually, you might, once per month, do a group skype session with your readers?
    Thank you, so much, for helping so many women find a way out of the trenches. You are a blessing!

  46. Diane Willson says:

    Happy birthday! I shared this on FB. If I was able to talk with you, I would want to talk about motivation and how to keep a godly mindset as you lose weight (not becoming proud or dressing in a way that draws attention to your body)

  47. Christina M says:

    Happy happy birthday Clare! I shared on Facebook. I would want to ask you about nutrition, and how to balance cardio, strength training & pilates.

  48. I shared on all site and I would love to chat with you about faith and inspiring others in fitness I share the passion for both :) Happy Birthday

  49. Twila Smith says:

    Thanks so much for sharing this! I shared on my fb page. The tank top is so cute! I would like to ask you who inspires you in the christian community and why.

  50. Love the routine! Sharing on Pinterest.

    I would like to ask you about how you are able to balance life, faith, family, blogging, workouts, working. And how to know when our workouts are for God’s glory vs. something else: pride, etc.

  51. Emily Peoples says:

    I pinned to Pinterest! First off, let me say how much of an inspiration you are. I struggle with fitness and my health and never really know where to get started. But it’s so encouraging to see a faith based person like you who’s willing to give up their time to help other’s reach their goal in becoming healthy and fit :) I feel like I would have several questions if I was able to get the chance to talk to you for 30 minutes, but something I really struggle with is healthy eating. I can easily exercise and have no problem maintaining that, but my problem is trying to find healthy, well-balanced meals that go along with my exercise. I’m a very picky eater, so this is something that I struggle with daily and would just love to get your insight on this topic or receive advice or tips from you on how I can start adding a healthy meal plan into my lifestyle.

  52. Oh my goodness this is so cool!! Happy birthday!! :-D This is an awesome idea! We’ve totally been jamming to the soundtrack all week and had a movie night watching it!! :-) LOVE that movie! :-) I think my daughter would even have fun doing this with me (heck all three of my boys would too….they’ve been singing the soundtrack songs with us, but shhhh don’t tell anyone I said that!) :-)

    I pinned this and will share it on Facebook too :-D

  53. I’m so excited to find your site about Pilates! I am needing to get stretching and back into shape. Excited to follow you!

  54. I pinned this and tweeted!!

  55. Happy birthday girlie!!! I shared on Facebook!

    If we were to skype- one of my questions would
    Be how to balance it all. I have to be careful for exercise not to become an idol in my life. But sometimes in the business of life with 3 6 and under, homeschooling and being a military family– I can let it not be a priority (and “let it go” in terms of not wanting it to control me)

  56. Cindie Wnquist says:

    How kind of you to bless us with a gift on YOUR birthday. May the Lord return the blessings in the same measure you have blessed others…myself included.I will pin your Frozen video on Pinterest.

    I have been on a quest to lose 100 lbs…65 lbs to go. I have tried many of your exercises, but could use additional modification ideas to use until I’m stronger and more fit. I don’t have much upper body strength (planking and pushups are all but impossible).

  57. Olga Gurlov says:

    I pinned this giveaway. Would love to talk to you about life, fitness and faith.

  58. I pinned this post. I would ask you about nutrition and eating well. I’d also like advise on increasing flexibility.

  59. I shared the video on Facebook. Thank you great core workout! If I win I’d like to talk about core workouts and overall workouts for optimal health because I am getting married on June 21st and want to be in great shape.

  60. Kimberly says:

    Happy Birthday, wishing you a year overflowing with all that brings you joy! Love the workout and the giveaway ….Shared on Pinterest

  61. Happy Birthday and thank you for your encouragement and Godly insights! I shared this via Pinterest, and I’d love to talk to you about where to start on a healthy living journey…scripture, how to formulate a healthy eating plan, fitness routines etc. Thanks!

  62. So great! Happy B day, girl! My boys actually came running in to see this video. LOL! They are totally into fitness and said you got a good pushup! I love this vid too!

    I have been doing fitness challenges for over 5 years on my blog http://www.faithfitnessandfun.blogspot.com I would ask you how do you keep going and stay motivated after your body doesn´t want to. :) I mean my metabolism is changing the older I get. Having a hard time staying at my peak.

    Thanks for doing this on your Birthday! what a great way to celebrate.

    Dani

  63. oh I posted it to FB. and twitter! :) Love you in Jesus! have a fabulous day!

  64. Shared!!!
    Happy birthday!
    I love dancing with our almost 3 yr old. You get to be goofy and they think your awesome :)
    If I had the opportunity, I would ask you about toning my “muffin top” area. After having our daughter this seems to be more of a difficult area to make progress.
    God bless,
    Jen

  65. I’d love to talk about fitness, balance & faith :) happy birthday :)

  66. Oops – forgot to mention – posted to FB, twitter & ig

  67. Shared on fb. Hope you have a great birthday today! I would ask where to start a d how to keep going! xo

  68. Hi Clare!
    Happy “Post” Birthday to you :) I posted this to Facebook. I just found your Facebook page this very morning and what an answer to prayer! You’re so inspiring :) I’m so excited to be here!
    If able to chat with you, I think my main question would be how do you “keep on keeping on” when you’ve hit a bump in the road. How do you stay positive and keep God’s truth in the forefront when Satan is so quick to tell you that you’ve failed. If we’re all honest…sometimes it’s easier to hear the yucky than the Truth.
    Blessings to you!

  69. Pinned!

    I would LOVE 30 minutes to talk about how you carve out the time, how you brought equipment into the picture (all at once? a little at a time?, how you track things to keep your workouts fresh and how you know when you are achieving your goals and continue the motivation!

    :)

  70. Happy belated birthday! I posted on Pinterest! I would love to discus finding time and also working out while nursing (make sure eating enough calories).

  71. Happy Birthday! What a great way to bless others on your day ;) I would ask how to get “unstuck” from where I am. Have been on healthy journey but seem to fall off the wagon with sugar & snacks & can’t get rid of 10 pounds :( The harder I work the more I eat so I sabotage all the the good. Pinned & Posted on FB
    Thank you!

  72. Joyce C. says:

    Happy Birthday!! I pinned on Pinterest. I would ask how I get started and what to do after taking a very long time off.

  73. I posted on Facebook

    How do I piece together a great workout? I love the full workouts you post but I would love to be able to take those and change them up so that I am working on areas that I need or to make them more challenging. I tend to get bored easily and need to mix things up.

  74. Shared on twitter. Actually, I’d love to talk Metabolic Effect and your friendship with CCB. :)

  75. Elizabeth C says:

    Happy Birthday! I really LOVE reading your posts…I posted on fb :) If I win the skype conversation, I would ask how you stay focused/motivated after the first week or two of an exercise/eating plan (when you are sore, tired, etc) :)

  76. I pinned this post to Pinterest:) Have a very happy birthday!

  77. I posted to facebook. Hope you had a fabulous birthday!!!

  78. so cool! Shared on fb. Happy Birthday!

  79. Shared on FB! Happy Birthday!!!

  80. Julie Phelps says:

    Happy Birthday!
    I posted on both Facebook and Pinterest. I would love to talk to you about finding time to work out when you work all day, are a wife and mother. Another topic would be how to fit in daily spiritual habits like reading my Bible and prayer.

    Julie

  81. Happy Birthday!! You have inspired me to workout at home more. When I couldn’t make it to the gym I would just consider the day a failure in the health department but now I turn to your blog or youtube to get a workout in.

    Thanks!!!!

  82. Katie Thieman says:

    Happy Birthday Clare!! Can’t wait to try this routine! And I shared this post on twitter @kthieman and shared the video on my FB page too. I would love to chat with you about all kinds of stuff, mostly what I struggle with most, food.

  83. I don’t Facebook, twitter, instagram or pinterest. But I would love to have a conversation with you regarding, of course, limited time to exercise and prioritization of exercises. Basically if you have 10 minutes today where would you place your focus. I would love to have either the tank or the conversation. Thanks!!

  84. Kathy Boles says:

    Pinned to my Pintrest Fitness board! Would love to get your thoughts on the mid-40s metabolism slow down and how to rev that engine again through fitness and nutrition.
    Thanks and Happy Birthday!

  85. Happy Birthday! I would talk about how to better combine fitness and faith.

    Pinned and shared on FB!

    Thanks!

  87. Happy Happy Birthday! I shared on FB& pinterest today. I love those tanktops, got one a while back and would love another! Have a very blessed Birthday Clare :)

  88. Happy Birthday Clare! I shared your post on twitter. I always enjoy reading your posts and how you manage to make health and fitness a priority but always make sure your relationship with God is at the core of what you do. Thanks for the encouragement you give us through your blog!

  89. Happy birthday and thanks for this opportunity!! I pinned this to my Pinterest board “Get Fit” :) I would like to ask you how someone with weak adrenals can ease back into exercise. I just get exhausted now when I try to exercise, but I want to jump back in so badly!

  90. Happy Birthday Clare! Thanks for giving US a gift! I have shared on Facebook and Twitter and re-posted on instagram! There are really two things I’d love to chat with you about. First is how to begin weight lifting. I don’t want huge muscles, but you have beautiful definition in your arms/shoulders and I’d like to know how work toward that more efficiently. Secondly, I’d like to ask how you keep from letting health/exercise consume you. I have become more aware of my eating and exercise, but sometimes I wonder if I’m putting too much emphasis on it. I just want to get your thoughts on balance. Again, Happy Birthday!!

  91. I shared here: https://twitter.com/asimplehomestd/status/446358313564114944

    How do you get motivated to do indoor exercises (like the one you have above) when you prefer to exercise outdoors (walking/running)?

  92. this will be fun workout to do with Let It Go!

  93. Anita B. says:

    Posted! Thanks for sharing! I just watched that movie for the first time this morning…adorbs.

    Question I would ask: Is it okay to have more than one question? I’m always seeking fitness tips for women.

    Also – happy birthday!

  94. Pinned to Pinterest. I would want to visit about consistency. I start a program then get busy & soon stop.

  95. Just shared on Pinterest (and FB too :-)

    Question: how do you motivate yourself when you don’t feel like working out or when you have been away from doing any exercise for a length of time. Thank you!

  96. Natalie B says:

    Happy Birthday! I just pinned it! I’d like to know what your routine is throughout the week and how you keep your arms so toned.

  97. Happy birthday! My birthday is March 19. I look forward to your “birthday workout” each year. By March I really need something new to add to my routine until I can get outside on a reguar basis again. Thanks!

  98. sheila payne says:

    I shared this on Facebook. I am 52 (53 in April) and all I do is walk 3 miles a day 5 days a week. I have tried a few other things but I never get very far n my own. I would ask you to help me design a workout to compliment my walking. Happy birthday.

  99. Sarah W. says:

    hugs!

  107. oops, shard on FB :)

  108. Happy Birthday! Shared on Facebook. I knew you taught classes but I didn’t know you have taught pilates for that long. One of my questions would be to hear your background and education in fitness – especially since you live somewhat near me (NE Ohio). One of my longtime goals is to become a pilates instructor. Love your recent posts on balance – needed that reminder for this week.

  109. Reposted and love your webite! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Be bkessed as you are such a blessing <3.

  110. Shared on fb. Happy birthday! What r some of the best exercises to get rid of baby stomach fat and tighten loose skin?

    i shared on facebook, tweeted on twitter and pinned on pinterest! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  112. Shared on twitter (@girlgrowsup) Loving Frozen. March 22 is MY bday, so it’d be fun to win.

    I’d have two main questions…How much protein should I actually be eating based on my size and workout routine…and is does cardio just make me hungrier?

  113. Ira'n Meche says:

    Posted on Fb and pinned on Pinterest. Happy Birthday and thanks for your inspiration! How do you balance prayer, family life and teaching Pilates as well as other fitness classes? How do you stay motivated?

  114. Happy Birthday!

    Thank you for posting this. I had a baby about 6 weeks ago and I really need to start exercising so I have more energy and feel better about myself. I look forward to doing this workout.

  115. I just tried this it was so fun with theistic and so hard. I didn’t realize how out of shape I am. Than you for doing this!!

  116. Pinned it! I would love to know more about balance with young children. And how to lose the baby belly :)

  117. I pinned it! Thanks for this cool giveaway!

  118. I pinned on Pinterest, which also shows up on my facebook feed.
    I have to think a little more on what I would want to chat about. Probably finding a good balance with being happy with the body God gave me (I have always struggled with my weight) and too concerned with fitness and health.

  119. I pinned it! I’d love to chat about ways to encourage my husband to work out with me!

  120. I shared this on Facebook. I would ask you how to do a workout that would lift my backside but not make my legs huge!

  121. Wendi Barber says:

    Happy birthday — from one March baby to another. Thx for.your great workouts. Can wait to try this one.

  122. Happy Birthday!
    I pinned this on Pinterest.
    I would probably like to talk about diet and workouts.

  123. I posted on Facebook.

    Shared on Facebook! I would love to skype with you during our Made to Crave study at church Wednesday night! There’s only 8 of us ladies that have committed to putting God first, craving Him and not food. What a hard journey it has been so far!! We are halfway through and sure could use a pep talk! ;) Thank you for your posts everyday. God bless you!

  125. Love your blog. Great info! Awesome tank! :) Just moved across country solo & picked up emotional/stress/eating. love to get my mind off of it & more strength workouts.

  126. Farrah Benson says:

    Happy Birthday! Love your page and site!!! As a mom of 4, special ed teacher, and Army spouse (now hubby is retired), I enjoy your posts and words of encouragement! It’s inspiring and uplifting when you are trying to take care of everyone, you remind to take care of me too. The healthier and happier me makes for a healthier and happier family :) God only gives us what he wants us to grow from and knows we can handle…. Thank you!

  127. Shared on Instagram :) and I tagged you there.

    I would love to chat about how to start fitness classes at churches.

    And Happy Birthday!

    Pinned the post! Would enjoy posting about a new (shortish) ab workout to add to my running routine to add tone/definition. Also would like to talk running…and starting to train for a half marathon!

    Hi Clare,

    Shared on Pinterest. :)

    I’d love to talk about how to find my forgotten abs after 4 c-secions and hernia surgery! Even some of those “super easy ab workouts” can be killer (and not in the good way) for someone like me. Oh and maybe a little arm talk. Bat wings at 32 are just not cool. :)

  134. I shared. Thank u for sharing. I would probably ask u more about your faith as it relates to your fitness goals.

  135. Hope you’ve had a fun filled and blessed birthday! I would like to ask you about how to really sort through all the types of nutritional plans to connect with genuine health as well as the faith and mental motivations, especially as an older single, when getting back into fitness and health. Blessings!

  138. Hi clare! I tweeted the giveaway! I’d love to talk about blogging tips if I won! :)

  139. First, Happy Belated Birthday! I love pilates though I am just restarting my exercise program. I was doing good until I had to have bi-lateral carpal tunnel surgery and elbow surgery in 2013. I saw a post on Facebook and would love to find pilates routines that are taught by a Christian. I would just love you to talk to me about how to get back on track and stay there – - tips, tricks, hints and how to incorporate this with Christian music – - I even love to just dance to Christian worship music and get in the presence of God – - – getting my spiritual and physical needs tapped at same time. God Bless

    Hey Clare! I shared and commented to enter the giveaway last week, but just now got around to doing the workout. I have a question though – my hips hurt so bad when laying on my side doing the flutters! I put a blanket under them which helped a little but they still hurt. Any suggestions? Sometimes I feel so old and busted and I’m only 28! Haha :) Thanks!

    • Hi Katherine! Very normal! Probably the most common complaint at first.The more you do it, the less you feel it. If after doing this consistently 2 times a week or so for 2-3 weeks you still feel it, let me know!

      Clare

  144. Thx! And thx for the modification video :)
