What is Pilates and How Can it Improve Your Fitness?

Pilates is an innovative system of mind-body exercise evolved from the principles of fitness innovator, Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s.

Pilates dramatically transforms the way your body looks, feels and performs. This system works deeply from the “inside out” and has endured for the past 80 years because it simultaneously builds strength without excess bulk, as it stretches and realigns the body while relieving tension and strain in the joints.

The Benefits of Pilates

  • Reduces stress as it improves focus and breathing methods that encourages relaxation and a strong “mind/body” connection.
  • Develops a strong core – flat abdominals and relieves lower back pain caused by weak core muscles that don’t support optimal alignment.
  • Improves posture and coordination which creates an evenly balanced and conditioned body.
  • Strengthens and improves range of motion in the spine, neck, shoulders and hips resulting in less wear and tear on your entire body for optimal health and injury prevention.
