What is Pilates?
An innovative system of non-impact mind-body exercise evolved from the original principles of Joseph Pilates. Pilates exercises are performed on a Mat or on specialized equipment. Pilates transforms the way your body performs and feels by building strength without bulk. Muscles are simultaneously strengthened and lengthened, thus they become longer and leaner acquiring optimal strength and flexibility. The result is a sleek, toned body that is upright, balanced and free of old tensions.
Benefits of Pilates:
- Longer, leaner muscles resulting in freedom of movement
- Increases strength and flexibility
- Increases core strength and stability
- Improves balance and coordination
- Improves spinal alignment
- Improves performance in sports
- Non-impact form of exercise making it easier on joints.
- Safe, versatile and effective for all ages and fitness levels.
Professional dancers have known the benefits of Pilates for decades. Top athletes such as Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin, basketball star Jason Kidd and Golf Pro Camilo Villegas use it for flexibility, strength, and injury prevention. Pilates will work for you, whether you are a seasoned athlete or a complete beginner.
