Benefits of Pilates
DEVELOP A STRONG CORE
Pilates exercises develop a strong “core,” or center of the body. Pilates can be both athletic and rehabilitative. We achieve strength through controlled movements that challenge EVERY muscle of your body!
GAIN LONG, LEAN MUSCLES AND FLEXIBILITY
More conventional or traditional workouts are weight bearing and tend to build short, bulky muscles – the type most prone to injury. Pilates elongates and strengthens, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility. A body with balanced strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured.
CREATE AN EVENLY CONDITIONED BODY, IMPROVE SPORTS PERFORMANCE, AND PREVENT INJURIES
In the same vein, a lot of these same conventional workouts tend to work the same muscles. This leads weak muscles tend to get weaker and strong muscles tend to get stronger. The result is muscular imbalance – a primary cause of injury and chronic back pain.
Pilates conditions the whole body, even the ankles and feet. No muscle group is over trained or under trained. Your entire musculature is evenly balanced and conditioned, helping you enjoy daily activities and sports with greater ease, better performance and less chance of injury. That’s why so many professional sports teams and elite athletes now use Pilates as a critical part of their training regimen.
