Pilates is a whole body, strength and conditioning regime, which focuses on the activation of the core abdominal muscles. “Use your core” has become a common phrase used by fitness instructors across multiple disciplines. Pilates will teach you to properly and consistently engage your core, whilst working in various positions and ranges of movement. Strong abdominal muscles play a significant role in good posture too. Our posture can be compromised significantly by our daily work routines (for example extended periods of sitting). Pilates can help address the imbalances in the body that arise as a result of this. Pilates is also wonderful at increasing your pliability and flexibility. So if you suffer from tight muscles, Pilates can help. In fact pilates can help everyone! From the elite athlete to the couch potato. Give it a go and see for yourself!
As Joesph Pilates himself stated:
In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 sessions you will see the difference and in 30, you will have a whole new body
