Why Pilates Is One Of The Greatest Workouts

March 1, 2018

Pilates has become a worldwide phenomenon, with over 12 million people practising the exercise. It is designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to its natural balance. Based upon an anatomical understanding of the skeletal and muscular systems.

I believe Pilates is one of the greatest workouts to do as it can be beneficial for everyone, regardless of age or ability, helping to the participants to:

  • Increased muscle strength and tone, particularly of your abdominal muscles, lower back, hips and buttocks (the ‘core muscles’ of your body)
  • Balances muscular strength on both sides of your body
  • Enhances muscular control of your back and limbs
  • Improves stabilisation of your spine
  • Improves posture
  • Rehabilitation or prevention of injuries related to muscle imbalances
  • Improves physical coordination and balance
  • Relaxation of your shoulders, neck and upper back
  • Safe rehabilitation of joint and spinal injuries
  • Prevention of musculoskeletal injuries
  • Increases lung capacity and circulation through deep breathing
  • Improves concentration
  • Increases body awareness
  • Improves flexibility

For all of these reasons and more is why I recommend Pilates to most of my clients and why I am a firm believer that PILATES IS A MUST to include in your fitness regimen
