The Benefits of Pilates
Muscle conditioning, control and strength: Pilates helps to identify areas of weakness that may inhibit optimum form, unlike strength training with weights, Pilates produces long, lean muscles allowing a greater range of motion, increasing functional strength. Pilates strengthens muscles that play a vital role in performing particular movements. Back muscles are developed evenly and the spine is elongated and aligned for better stability.
Flexibility and control: Pilates improves balance, agility and stability throughout the body to create a proper foundation. Increasing mobility and Suppleness, therefore a strength regime that doesn’t come at the cost of flexibility is a must.
Precision every movement in the Pilates has a purpose. Every instruction is vitally important to the success. To leave out any detail is to forsake the intrinsic value of the exercise. The focus is on doing one precise and perfect movement, rather than many half-hearted ones. Eventually, this precision becomes second nature and carries over into everyday life as grace and economy of movement.
