Pilates doesn’t build muscles in the same way a weights program at the gym does.
Pilates works to build long, lean, toned muscles that work perfectly within the context of your body as a whole.
This exercise strengthen the weaker muscles and give the dominant muscles a break by demanding that you work symmetrically. It also makes you more aware of your body, enhancing coordination, balance, and power.
Fewer repetitions with the greatest precision and control means that you get the most out ofyour workout, and your focus and determination grow exponentially.
The result is greater overall muscular stamina with less effort.
Building whole body strength enhances every single movement you make in daily life. Improves the functional fitness needs that you require as you move through life.
A strong core goes a long way towards a good posture. Pilates encourages you to utilize your core muscles, and also focus on proper alignment in the body.
A good posture doesn’t just look physically appealing, it offers a safe and steady base to move through life. A good posture sets you up for greater ease and grace in daily movements, as well as supporting your body as it ages.
From helping to reduce back and neck pain, to easing tension in the body and preventing injury. A good posture is something that will carry you through life, literally!
A key focus in Pilates is maintaining good alignment and balance through all the exercises. This creates a strong back, glutes, and abs which work together to form a perfect posture.
Pilates will tone and work your entire body to achieve body conditioning inside and out.
Many forms of modern exercise work on developing certain areas of the body while disregarding others. Pilates trains the body as an integrated whole. It works to promote well-balanced muscle development.
Pilates is virtually unmatched in relation to total body toning and conditioning. As well as, increasing flexibility and range of motion for the joints. Pilates may be gentle but it is also challenging. It focuses on body placement and increasing awareness of your body’s entire resource system.
In Pilates, you engage the mind to move the body as an integrated whole in tandem with the breath, with the utmost grace, control, and precision. While Pilates may not have quite the same effect as interval training or a 10km run, it does include a dose of cardiovascular exercise and will be sure to rev up your heart rate.
