Pilates, yoga, and self-care are the new trends allowing people to connect with their inner self, include wellness into their routine, and achieve their body goals as summer approaches. 

In 2022, Lori Harvey sat down with “The Cut” for an interview about her lifestyle, fashion, and some of her current favorites Harvey mentioned in the interview that Pilates is her go-to workout, and ever since then, it has gained popularity. 

As an influencer, Harvey has a lot of sway when voicing her opinion, as in the video where she spoke about her Pilates regime. 

According to TikTok analytics, in a video speaking about her Pilates regime, Harvey received 33.6k likes, 21.4k saves, and almost 6,000 shares. 

“I feel like that [Pilates] has completely transformed my body and really leaned me out and gives me long lean muscles versus like when I would just go to the gym,” Harvey shared with The Cut. “I love Pilates on the reformer, but I also like to incorporate hot Pilates, which is really good to get a nice sweat.”
