You’ve heard the word but you don’t know what it is?
REAL body and core strength – that is Pilates , a system of exercises designed to build strength- especially core strength, flexibility and lean muscle tone while focussing on lengthening the body and improving your posture.
And Yes! Pilates is for both women and men of all ages. From every young person wanting to build a solid foundation to have a strong, beautiful lean body and ensure a fit and pain free future, to the successful business man behind a desk all day who wants to be strong, lean and fit without spending hours in a gym.
Or maybe you have, over the years, accumulated some niggly aches and pains or maybe a muscle imbalance along the way and you’ve tried to solve them through various training system, diets etc. But never really became pain free or regained your mobility after injury?
Pilates will not only aid in resolving these issues but also build a powerhouse that you can use as a genuine foundation towards any fitness, lifestyle or wellness goal you set yourself.
Pilates is also the ideal safe exercise to help women regain their core and pelvic strength after giving birth and also the perfect Rehab system to reactivate your core muscles after a caesarean birth.
Pilates also caters not only for the athlete with painful joints and possible loss of range of motion, but also for the nurse, the airhostess, the teacher etc. who live with pain and discomfort daily from just plain overuse of joints.
As a conclusion – Pilates is for everyone!
