Advantages of doing pilates
Free from back pain!
Pilates was initially developed as a rehabilitative tool. Joseph Pilates was a German gymnast who dedicated his life to teaching his exercising techniques.
He believed that incorrect posture went hand-in-hand with poor health.
He believed that by having awareness of breath and of alignment of the spine, one could strengthen the deep torso and abdominal muscles, and reduce stress.
Bye bye to stress
For some students, the results are quick, which provides great motivation to keep coming. The classes are intense, as Pilates is full body workout. Not only can you feel the exercises working, but an endorphin buzz as well.
You stay in shape
Intense workouts will see you burn many more calories than a typical beginner’s mat class. The burn continues with cardiovascular exercises, helping to develop muscle tone, core strength, flexibility, balance and proper posture.
The ideal way to keep up with your training is by having an instructor design a custom program of exercises for you to keep up with in between your sessions in the studio, and plan a review session every so often to make sure your technique is correct and that you are getting the most out of your training.
